Quite. As discussed elsewhere, the same can be said of a lot of people in antiquity.Ok so . . . I believe there hasn't been adequate evidence brought forth that proves Yeshua physically existed.
However, that does NOT in any way prove he didn't exist, I'm not beyond admitting that.
So we've made some progress, then.
LOL, No.For argument's sake let's say Yeshua did exist during the time he was supposed to
I don't see any evidence that would make him the Son of Yahweh, or any kind of Divine Being, or Messiah as claimed he was/is.

(For believers here, I would refer to St Thomas Aquinas, Summa Theologicae, FP, Q1, a8 Whether sacred doctrine is a matter of argument? As to why I wouldn't bother trying.)
I am mindful of:
“Belief or Nonbelief”, an exchange of letters between two intellectual heavyweights, both no longer with us: Umberto Eco (athiest) and Carlo Maria Martini (Catholic cardinal of Milan).
A review of this short book said:
"They are relentless in a search for common ground but also more than willing to respectfully disagree. In the end, this is the gift of this slim book, that two people can disagree with each other, tolerate the other’s point of view (without watering down his own) and remain coherent. In an age of talk radio’s ugly rejoinders and the weak-kneed compromise we all tend toward in order to get along, this robust exchange is a joy to read."
The lack of respect and degree of intolerance on your part I find sadly telling ... your 'ugly rejoinders' are unwelcome, unnecessary, and do nothing but reflect poorly on yourself.
