Is it weird for atheists to believe Jesus existed?
I think that historians believe that he existed and did some wonderful, radical things. They just don't all agree that he performed miracles. And there was debate among Christian sects about whether he was the son of god. That wasn't decided until centuries after he died. That little tidbit was the pebble that began my doubting. How can dogma be infalliable when major decisions were debated and voted on?
