    What was the physical evidence Jesus existing?

    I heard that they had found Noah's ark?

    If you believe that Julius Ceasar existed, then rest assured, you can know that Jesus existed. The reason I say this is because more information, in the way of historical writings, has been discovered about Jesus than any other Biblical figure! There is a plethora of information about Jesus's life and times, according to archaeologists and historians, though most people don't realize this. If you really want to know more, I recommend that you read, Fabricating Jesus, by Craig A. Evans. Also, here is a short YouTube clip from the author:

    Also, I've heard there is evidence for Noah's Ark, though I have not personally looked into it.

      The physical evidence thing is pretty interesting. I did a google search and found this.

        I didn't see anything about a flood that covered the surface of the earth.  What I DID see was a mention that local floods might have inspired the exaggerated and mythical flood of Noah.

        "Some of the details of the Noah story seem mythical, so many biblical scholars believe the story of Noah and the Ark was inspired by the legendary flood stories of nearby Mesopotamia"

          True Dan, the entire flood story was plagiarized from The Epic of Gilgamesh. and there is no real evidence Jesus ever existed. No Roman archives report his trial and the Romans were very meticulous about keeping records.

            The Epic certainly predated the bible, but did it pre-date Jewish scripture about Noah and the flood?  I haven't the faintest, but it would be interesting to know.

              It is the oldest known story and it predated the Bible as well.  Besides, those who claim the world is only 7,000 years old--creationists-- cannot explain how the kangaroos got to Australia from Mt, Ararat.  lol

              The Bible didn't exist until "enlightened religious scholars" during King James reign picked and chose from many so-called as-told-to books until they had a tale they all could agree on.  They were simply common men who had their druthers as to what was right. Sorta like our government. 

              And the Jews knew Jesus didn't match the prophecies foretold long before. The Messiah was supposed to be a great military leader.  You can see why they didn't consider JC the real Messiah.

                You missed it.  Jewish literature was often the basis for the bible - is the story of Noah included there, and if so does it pre-date the Epic?  It's not the bible that matters at all, but other writings that gave rise, in part, to biblical tales.

                What little I could google seems to indicate that the tale is there, but I have no idea of the timeline or even if it actually IS there (evidence was slim).

                  Most of the tales are old goat herder stories told around the campfire.

    It's also interesting learning about how Christian holidays are arranged in sync with existing pagan celebrations to help bring the 2 into greater acceptance. I'm not the guru on this but I work with a guy who talks about this kind of thing all the time. It's very interesting.

      Correct Dan, setting the date for Xmas was an example of this. December 25th was also sacred to pagans as it represented  the winter equinox which had been celebrated for eons.  Sneaky, sort of..

        Halloween (All Hallows Day) was the same thing.  Romans were noted for doing this - when Christians went on the "convert" path they followed a tried and true method of "conquering" the population.  Even Easter, with it's widely varying date, fit well into celebrations of spring.
