Richard Dawkins claims Jesus existed! :shock:

Richard Dawkins Admits Jesus Existed


Lets keep in mind that Dawkins is a biologist not a theologian and he's quite terribly misinformed as there exists no credible evidence for a historical Jesus. Dawkins relies on other biblical scholars who tell him a historical Jesus must have existed and I address that here: Religion and the Ph.D.: A Brief History

If Dawkins thinks there was a historical Jesus, then, he needs to provide the evidence and since he just made the positive claim that "Jesus existed," therefore, the 'burden of proof' is now his responsibility to substantiate the claim.

Is Richard Dawkins Really the World's Leading Intellectual?

I'm reminded of:

Quote:
"Unfortunately, Dawkins is not an expert on the subject of Jesus mythicism. Hence, he should not be making pronouncements about it, anymore than I should be writing pretentious screeds about biology.

I have made repeated overtures to Dr. Dawkins with links to back up all my contentions, as well as appeals to him to respond to me, since in some of his remarks (e.g., re Zeitgeist) he is commenting basically upon my work.

If he is receiving my emails and seeing my tweets, he is ignoring me assiduously and plowing right ahead with this erroneous assertions.

It is too bad when a professional scientist does not want actually to examine the evidence. I hope he will come around at some point."

- Murdock/Acharya S, 2013-05-15 from the blog: 'Dawkins tweets Jesus mythicism'
