Dr. Richard Carrier, an expert in ancient history, explains why he changed his mind about the existence of an historical Jesus.
Note that this also goes a long way into explaining the relationship between the Jesus myth and other myths around at that time, as well as the synthesis of the myths that produced this character and how he was Euhemerized into a flesh and blood creature long after his supposed death.
This thread now replaces my outdated and incorrect thread that equated Jesus with Horus. The reality of the synthesis of other characteristics and some new stuff into the Jesus myth is far more complicated.
If you have any genuine interest in this subject, please do watch the entire video, even though it is an hour long. If you have even more interest, the book will be out soon. I don’t personally have that much interest. The video is enough for me.
