• I believe he may have existed but I do not believe he was the son of a God.
  • There is not historical proof that he ever existed.
  • What do you mean by "believe in Jesus?" That he existed? I certainly do. That he evolved into the highest spirutal being? Yes, again. That he was the only being to do so? Of course, not. It's the "christians" who think they have the cornerstone on Jesus and the desire to force their dogma down everyone's throat in that idiotic sanctimonious bible thumping manner that makes the rest of us roll our eyes. Jesus is the epitome of Christ Consciousness, that is why He is labeled the Christ.
  • I believe in Jesus... it's the concept of God that I have issues with. Hope this helps.
  • It's difficult to believe in the existence of someone who took their bones with them when they died, conveniently leaving behind no proof of their existence.
  • I'm going answer like i always do. Why? Do i need a reason not to believe.
  • jesus was one of about 12 people that fulfill the OT prophesies about the "son of god." Not only that, but the entire jesus story, is stolen, and full of astrological symbolism. The concept of heaven and hell are also stolen, just like the biblical flood. Add to that all of the morally heinous actions god does, and requires others to do. It only makes any sense if the bible is basically a book written to explain away the wrong doings of the ancient tribe of Israel.
  • Yeah, I can think of a few: 1. He doesn't exist 2. Never existed 3. There's no proof 4. The whole dying and coming back to live...dude! Really! Be serious!
  • I think it more probable than not that someone called Jesus, from Galilee, preached and prophesied and was probably crucified. For anything more, the evidence available is just too much like a folk-take to have any credibility.
  • Agree with skel1977. I think Jesus was a radical rabbi who pissed off the people in power one too many times.
  • yeah... I gave up believing in fairy stories when I was 5 years old!
  • No reason TO believe in Jesus. There is no scientific or historical proof that he has or ever will exist with such powers.
  • Simply because i feel i have no reason to beleive in him - there's my reason for not :) +3
  • I dont like Science Fiction?
  • I believe that such a man may have existed, but I'm Jewish, so I don't believe in the whole immaculate conception/resurrection myth...
  • Because he and his father mysteriously disappeared after the bible stopped being written. Obviously they died.
  • I don't really have a reason to believe either way. I enjoy the ideas spawned, but those ideas themselves are more appealing to my belief than the man himself. No offense, to anyone.
  • No, I have no reasons at all. I believe in Jesus Christ as my Lord and my Savior.
  • I believe in Jesus, he cuts my lawn..
  • I don't disbelieve. I still will not join his throngs of devout, fanatical, self-righteous followers.
  • There should be no doubt about his existence. There is far too much documentation to support it. To my knowledge, all of the major religions acknowledge his life. They do not, however, acknowledge his omnipotence. There real question is was he really the son of god? This is what I'm unsure of.
  • I believe his myth was a power play to try and grab converts to a new Judean cult from the then-dying Roman Empire. They're lucky they barely managed to beat out Mithras, and we're all the more ignorant for it. Besides which, even if there was a wandering radical rabbi preaching the downfall of the old order, I just don't like the cut of his jib.
  • (accidental submission please ignore)
  • Jesus who?
  • I think Gandhi put it best: “I like your Christ, I do not like your Christians. Your Christians are so unlike your Christ." I have no problem with Jesus or what he taught. I do have a problem with the millions of people who claim to follow him and completely ignore the -tolerance- that was a large cornerstone of his teachings.
  • John 17:3 And this is life eternal, that they might know thee the only true God, and Jesus Christ, whom thou hast sent. Everyone can decide what they believe, but belief does not change reality. If you really care about the Truth, go to the website below, and request a free book and decide for yourself. Don't let someone else make the decision for you. God bless!
  • 1. I have no reason to believe in jesus any more than the multiple other deities his myth is based on 2. Even if i believed in the Old Testament, Jesus does not fulfill the requirements of the messiah. 3. The same reason i don't believe in the tooth fairy, leprechauns, the Easter Bunny, or any other ridiculous work of fiction. 4. It would seem awfully unfair to the other BS myths to pick Jesus to believe in. Don't want to piss off Baal! 5. "Bob" pisses on JC 6. His followers leave a lot to be desired. Scary, hateful bunch at times
  • As the old Doobie Brothers song goes. Jesus is just all right with me.
  • I believe in Jesus, but I just don't believe in organized religion.
  • Yes..of course there is..the main reason, but not the only one is it's crap, prattle and not worthy of all the trees cut down to print that drivel.
  • i do believe in him
  • There is no firm evidence that he existed that is acceptable to scientists. Skeptics have refuted all alleged "evidence" believers offer. There are strong arguments that he never existed.
    • Jenny_Rizzo
      Scientists are theologically neutral. They don't support Atheism to prove your claims. You have not presented at least one argument to disprove the existence of Jesus. On the contrary, no scholar denies that Flavius Josephus was a trusted historian by his military reports and court documents.
  • no cause i do believe in him
  • No reason at all. :)
  • There's no real evidence that Jesus H. Christ actually existed. No one at all mentions him in the time he was supposed to live. If he really did 1/10 of what the Bible claims, every writer around would've written about his feats when they happened. Some accounts of Jesus are much later forged additions by Christian monk copyists, especially the two accounts of Jesus by Flavius Josephus. These are very clumsy forgeries. The Bible has many big contradictions about him. That is consistent with several writers inventing their own fiction and not checking what other fiction existed. The Bible shows evolution of the basic tale about him as time passed. The earliest accounts have few details, and we see more gradually added. .Still, no one ever made a complete biography of him. Years are missing from his life tale. It is notable that Matthew and Luke give conflicting accounts of Joseph's ancestry from David and then mention Jesus as an after thought. The original tale was evidently that Jesus was son of Joseph who was descended from David, and thus, Jesus was the Messiah. Someone decid3ed to copy the many virgin birth myths, and that ruins the tale. Jesus can no longer be Messiah if he is son of God not Joseph. Judaism says Jesus isn't the Messiah, but Christianity tries to make him both Messiah and son of God which is illogical. .
    • Jenny_Rizzo
      Seriously, these are your facts to disprove the existence of Jesus? Your answer is not based on facts. Any rational thinker would know it is utter bilge on your behalf. The only fact you have is that Judaism rejects the notion of Jesus.
    • Jenny_Rizzo
      Quote: "These are very clumsy forgeries." It makes no sense to forge the passages when Flavius Josephus was not a Christian. He wrote what he saw. Fact: Josephus was known for writing in Roman audiences and was a Roman citizen, so he couldn't speak ill of Rome, and probably thought positively of Roman society anyway. When scholars speak of the history of Flavius Josephus, he was the main source for even the later Hasmoneans, Roman administration of the region, the notorious King Herod, and figures of importance for the study of the New Testament.

      Quote: "Judaism says Jesus isn't the Messiah, but Christianity tries to make him both Messiah and son of God which is illogical. ." It is no surprise why the corruption of the Jews denied Jesus as the Messiah and the Son of God. But Jesus made it clear in the latter days. John 10:16 "And I have other sheep that are not of this fold. I must bring them also, and they will listen to my voice. So there will be one flock, one Shepherd."
