Aren't there Roman records or something referring to some fella getting crucified who matches his description? And isn't the fella meant to be a cheap trickster, or wizard or something? If so, that would sort of suggest that Christ at least APPEARED to perform miracles.

It would go something like this:

Jesus comes back
His identify is challenged

But it is irrefutably proven,
via dna, carbon dating, perfect knowledge of historic middle east, whatever (still working on this part)

Well, after legal finding is granted, Jesus gets the best international legal team and sues for wrongful imprisonment, wrongful execution, wrongful use of his name and likeness for profit, etc.

He wins, judgements against Rome, the Vatican, and most so-called Christian Churches, and on and on and on.

Well, after collecting all his judgements he owns about half of the planet.

He is able to impose justice, and mercy and charity and it is a wonderful thing to behold.



(I know, keep my day job.)
crazy shit man.

you should write it.

Flimsy premise, but some entertainment value if there is nothing better on the box.
I like that movie

perhaps they exist... But that can't be a real evidence.

All the thing is absurd!

But it seems that in Italy we're very good at wasting time & money on useless things.

Beautiful, yes... But I can't stand the fact that almost all the world laughs when talking about my country.

Maybe he existed..... maybe not..... the important thing (for some poeple) is to believe that he did exist.... that's all.

ROME (Reuters) - An Italian atheist lost his legal crusade against the Catholic Church on Thursday when a judge rejected his attempts to sue a priest for saying that Jesus existed 2,000 years ago, the priest's lawyer said.

Luigi Cascioli, 72, had argued his hometown priest and former schoolmate had effectively broken an Italian law meant to protect the public from being conned.

But instead of granting Cascioli his request to bring the case to court, the judge recommended magistrates investigate him for slandering priest Enrico Righi, Righi's lawyer, Bruno Severo said.

The 76-year-old priest said he was delighted by the news.

"Thank God it's over," Righi told Reuters. "I'm glad it has ended like this, because imagine if it had gone on and on."

Cascioli, author of a book called "The Fable of Christ," said the court had not yet informed him of the ruling. But he was not surprised, and said he would appeal to Italy's highest court, and then to The Hague.

Asked about the possibility he would be tried for slander, Cascioli chuckled, saying that to prove he lied, prosecutors would have to prove that Jesus existed.

"They don't have any proof," he said.
