    Jesus is a made up character or at the minimum an embellished character.

  • john.prestor

    That's more or less what I think too, mickbobcat.

    Yes, no one knows for sure if he really existed.

    Please, pick a lane yalbmert99. Do you believe Jesus existed and was schizophrenic, or that you don't know if he really existed or not? Why worry about him being schizo if he did not exist? Seems like a waste of energy to ask us to read a book explaining the mental state of a person who never existed.

    Regardless of whether or not one believes in the Jesus of the Gospels or writings of Paul and accept Jesus at the face value of what most Christians believe, the history of the Jewish Josephus or Mishnah as well as the Roman Tacitus and many others at that time all point to his existence. (Celsus, Lucian, et al.) So does the fact that our current calendar is based on his so-called birth date.

    So, go ahead and don't believe in him as your savior, but please don't start talking silliness that "no one knows for sure if he really existed" because that would then mean the same for pretty much any ancient personage who ever existed.

    The social fact of BC/AD (or BCE/CE) has nothing to do with whether Jesus existed or not. Josephus was tampered with, Tacticus is just repeating what Christians were saying, same for Celsus, etc. Do you have any better proof for this Jesus' guys existence? The gospels don't count.

    I'd add that Philo mentioned a Jesus but it was his own imagination a heavenly Joshua (This was before Jesus ministry supposedly took place)

    I just listened to a podcast recently that argued that the First Century Christians were probably a mushroom cult - as in the psychedelic shrooms - see for example Paul’s visions, speaking in tongues and John of Patmos and the transfiguration story and a lot of the so-called non-canonical Christian books.

  • john.prestor

    I'm skeptical of that claim. What evidence did the podcast present for that position? I've seen and heard people speak in tongues who weren't using shrooms. Shrooms never made me speak in tongues either...

    Brock: it is not certain if he existed, but if he did, he never did miracles. He had psychotic symptoms much like schizophrenia.

    John: right.

    Anony: drugs can lead to hallucinations, delusions, paranoia, but also genetic schizophrenia.
