If we don't literally have the accounts, we can't make any sort of analysis of the documents.
Ok if you put it that way then why do you believe anything? It's all just crap made up that people write in weird books I guess then. The Bible is a LEGIT historical manusscirpt, it's not like it was some scribbling of an 11 year old.

The document's historical significance and timeline doesn't fit soundly, you even said yourself the lack of literalism in the Bible apparently; therefore putting the actual events in jeopardy of scrutiny.

That's a completely irrelevant analogy, I believe certain documents becuase they are documented well, and they have proof.

According to my history book, Jesus does exist.
BUT none of his MIRACLES were proven.

Historians can prove he existed but cannot prove he was the son of god.

Historians differ at times, and this is an example of that.

The existence of Jesus isn't exactly supported 100%, and even so, it lends no credence to his suposed magnificence - he's just a random joe in history.

Jesus was a real man. However, he wasn't the only Messiah running around in his lifetime. There were others.

It begins at about 6:03 (Link: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JXvnz-p6Lm8).

I personally don't like Penn and Teller, but Michael Shermer is the one telling you about these other guys.

Actually the scriptures gives many incidents where Jesus heals the paralyzed, blind, mute, deaf, lame, etc. And there are also passages where it talks about him walking around for 40 days after he rose from the dead, and many people witnessed him on earth as he was doing so.

Oh, but The Bible isn't true. People just made all this up a long long time ago, I mean, how can someone raise from the dead? I can't believe when people say he never existed. Sure, you don't have to believe he was God, although he was, but he did exist.

I don't believe George Washington was all he cracked up to be. I mean, come on, I never saw him. People who tell me he chopped down his dad's cherry tree, haha! no way! no kid would have that courage. Yeah that's not true. He was never president either, just a smart man maybe I suppose. And whoever says he's 6'4", give me a break!

Yeah, I don't even know if he ever existed actually. I mean who can trust American history books? They aren't documented well.

Seriously! Good thing an omniscient homophobe doesn't exist, I don't think anyone would want that.
