The PM was saying today that our christian values are a big part of who we are as a country. I'm wondering what other people feel but I'm not sure if she is in the real world if she sees today's society and she relates it to something that is not even a fact. I think politiians have to limit themselves to the real world. Anyhow that brought me to this question. Did Jesus exist?

I think it's likely that the world celebrates a figure that did exist as opposed to a figure that did not exist. I don't see why that's even a question.

I don't either, and I don't know why we always get beat around the head with that when there are so many amazing philisophies and thinkers to quote and to learn from. Having said that I think Jesus probably existed but I can't say I was around.

Yes I think so. He inspired the whole world that does not just come out of thin air? I think religion carries it a bit too far but he must have been a very good man. My uncle is a vicar and my father was a lay preacher. Now we don't believe like they did but some of the nicest and most decent people I have known were christians.

I think that's quite offensive. Of course Jesus existed. What if we start questioning whether Buddha or Mohammed existed, it's like saying they are not valid.
