Do you agree?

It doesn't matter whether Jesus lived or died, it matters whether he played the game.

Jesus' existance is a matter of question, though I think there was a person who inspired followers around that time. For one, Jesus was called Jesus of Nazareth, but the prophecy says the Messiah was to be from Bethlehem. And wouldn't you know it, in three of the gospels we have a story that puts him in Bethlehem. A story whose premis is not found anywhere outside the bible mind you.

In my opinion, this "Jesus" fella was probably a very radical and progressive preacher for his day, though I don't see any reason to believe he was more than human.

It has been suggested that the mass is in fact a ritual for consuming a certain type of magic mushroom. However, any suggestion that the early Christians were in fact druggies doesn't quite stack up. They were high alright, high on love, baby.

I'm more inclined to believe that if he was a real person, the so-called miracles he performed were parlor tricks or glorfied acts of kindness.

It don't matter if it is truth or a lie.
It don't matter if you believe or not.
It don't matter if you want heaven or hell.
Only one thing will happen when you die, and you will not be around to talk about it.

Before you get your new body starting as a baby again, you will have to give a good reason just to remember your past life, and the time you waited in your rotting body until you earned your new chance. But, all those past memories might come back to you when you die. Only because while you are died you can't tell anyone.

That is implying cyclical existence is true, if it's true then, you still won't have your past memories. What is the mechanism for that?

You can block a lot of things in your memory by a dramatic event. I think dying is a dramatic event. Amnesia is a common thing.

He is not the truth to those He has not open their spiritual eyes and ears. Because, the Bible teaches clear, the wicked one will never undertand the truth. We read this truth in the book of Matthew 13:13-19.

Therefore speak I to them in parables: Because they seeing see not; and hearing they hear not, neither do they understand. And in them is fulfilled the prophecy of (E-sai'-as), which saith, By hearing ye shall hear, and shall not understand; and seeing ye shall see, and shall not perceive. For this people's heart is waxed gross, and their ears are dull of hearing, and their eyes they have closed; lest at any time they should see with their eyes and hear with their ears, and should understand with their heart, and should be converted, and I should heal them. But blessed are your eyes, for they see: and your ears, for they hear. For verily I say unto you, That many prophets and righteous men have desired to see those things which ye see, and have not seen them; and to hear those things which ye hear, and have not heard them. Hear ye therefore the parable of the sower. When any one heareth the word of the kingdom, and understandeth it not, then cometh the wicked one, and catcheth away that which was sown in his heart. This is he which received seed by the way side...Matthew 13:13-19.

history teaches that the later Buddha was alive during a set period of time and history also teaches us of Jesus being alive. the book changed a few facts but over all they did exist.

There are many stories previous to the bible that describe the same man in many different societies, so unless there are many of him, or he came back several different times, then no, i dont think he is real. but i still allow for the slight possibility that he is.

Oh, I accept without a problem that a man named Jesus Christ lived. I accept he was a religious leader (and the first hippy), I'll accept he was nailed to a tree for it.

But that he was the son of God? Gods coming down and knocking up human women to give birth to superheoric children is nothing new in mythology. The character of Jesus is just another incarnation of the sun god.
