In an article published by the Council for Secular Humanism, historical researcher and author Michael Paulkovich claims that Jesus of Nazareth “never existed” and is a “mythical character.”

Paulkovich, who dedicated his book “No Meek Messiah: Christianity’s Lies, Laws and Legacy” to disproving Jesus’ existence, says that out of the 126 historical texts he examined from the first to third centuries, not a single one referenced the prominent religious figure. Paulkovich believes that if the stories of Jesus had been true, the authors of Jesus’ time would have been writing about his “global miracles and alleged worldwide fame.”

In the article titled “The Fable of The Christ”, Paulkovich refers to Jesus as a fictional character that Christian followers made up so that they had someone to worship. Although Paulkovich admits that he did find mention of Jesus in the 95 AD “The Jewish Wars” by Roman historian Josephus Flavius, he believes Jesus was added in much later by editors of Flavius’ work.

Paulkovich wrote:

“When I consider those 126 writers, all of whom should have heard of Jesus but did not, and Paul and Marcion and Athenagoras and Matthew with a tetralogy of opposing Christs, the silence from Qumran and Nazareth and Bethlehem, conflicting Bible stories, and so many other mysteries and omissions, I must conclude this ‘Jesus Christ’ is a mythical character. ‘Jesus of Nazareth’ was nothing more than urban (or desert) legend, likely an agglomeration of several evangelic and deluded rabbis who might have existed.” [source]

These 126 writers, which Paulkovich refers to as “The Silent Historians”, are all listed below:

Paulkovich also claims that Paul, the apostle most credited for spreading Christianity, has never actually referred to Jesus as a real, physical being.

“Paul is unaware of the virgin mother, and ignorant of Jesus’ nativity, parentage, life events, ministry, miracles, apostles, betrayal, trial and harrowing passion. Paul knows neither where nor when Jesus lived, and considers the crucifixion metaphorical.” [source]

Paulkovich regards the stories of Jesus as “oral legend” and a “hoax.” The controversial researcher also refers to Christianity as a “cult” and is hopeful that one day the spreading of “nonsense to children” will be stopped. He also calls the religious teachings “child abuse.”

“The cult of Christianity has an incalculable amount of blood on its hands. And the ‘Jesus’ tale seems to have been nothing more than oral legend, with plenty of hoax and fraud perpetrated along the ages. It is my hope that mankind will someday grow up and relegate the Jesus tales to the same stewing pile that contains Zeus and his son Hercules, roiling away in their justifiable status as mere myth.

The time to stop teaching the tall tales and nonsense to children, frightening them with eternal torture administered by God’s minions, has long ago passed. Parents who do so are likely deluded, and most surely are guilty of child abuse of the worst sort.” [source]

Echoing these remarks, the description of Paulkovich’s book “No Meek Messiah” reads:

“The book chronicles the cobbling of Christianity, its outrageous forgeries, and its immoral acts of torture, genocide, and obfuscation over the many centuries. The ‘virgin birth’ tale was a forgery perpetrated 250 years before Jesus, even admitted by the Catholic Encyclopedia.” [source]

Paulkovich is not alone in his theory. Richard Dawkins, atheist and author of “The God Delusion”, has previously described the evidence for Jesus’ existence as “shaky.” Just last year, self-proclaimed Biblical scholar Joseph Atwill said that Jesus was manufactured by Roman aristocrats in a government effort to control citizens – a plot he speaks about in his book, “Caesar’s Messiah: The Roman Conspiracy to Invent Jesus.”

The vast majority of theologians and scholars still hold the opinion that Jesus as a person did exist – even if he was a mere man instead of a Christian savior. There is even an atheist who disagrees with Paulkovich’s claims that Jesus was a fictional character. While we search for answers, there is no question that Paulkovich has riled up a storm within the Christian community, and this won’t be the last time we hear of his comments.

  1. Just a high school diploma here . After reading every one’s comments and seeing many lead with their education accomplishments I figured I’d better lead with mine as well . Now that , that’s out the way maybe I’ll be taken seriously. Myself being raised Christian and being an African/African American was devastated when I found out little 8pound nine ounce white baby Jesus of Nazareth was a plagiarized character stolen from Africans by the Roman Empire. It’s funny one lady lead off with she’s an historian and felled to mention this!!! Why??? This post is questioning the existence Jesus Christ yet most turned into a question about if God or God’s exist. Why??? My hypothesis is that if you truly start researching about Jesus it leads you to Africans. After seeing my brothers and sisters ContInually being murdered by public servants. The raw and unjustly manner of the murders and them being broadcasts all over the world. People who don’t look like me and those being murdered all seemingly being unbothered by the murders. Forced me for my safety and the safety of those I’ve fathered into this world forced me to wake up!!! Once I awakened I went back to the beginning and researched human history!!! I had to know why African people are hated so much!!! At this point I’m a Jesus Christ is the light of the world believing Christian. Human history says African beings are this planet original people. It also says for thousands of years African humans walked this planet alone as the planet’s only humans . This fact directly contradicts the bible and it’s Adam and Eve story. It’s a easily researched fact Africans had started many different civilization’s by the time the story of God’s first people was written down and before it was conceived!!! This is one of many lies but a very important one I’ll come back to . Human history also leads you to Neanderthals. Non human beings who lived 45,000 years ago. Neanderthals lived in Europe and Asia it’s important to note no Neanderthal bones have ever been found in Africa or America!!! Science says the Neanderthals died out 40,000 years ago. Yet before they died out some were gifted into humanity by their African father’s. Meaning 40,000 years ago African humans from the continent of Africa migrated to Europe and Asia and the African human male’s non human Neanderthal beings females. Those children who was gifted with the precious gift of melanin from their African human father’s are the children the bible is talking about when it says God created all races of people. Any Neanderthal non human being who wasn’t gifted with the precious gift of melanin burned up by the Sun 40,000 years ago. Science now confirms this by acknowledging that all people expect Africans carry the Neanderthals DNA in their blood til this very moment!!! Everything that has come after oh say 44,000 years ago is a direct reflection of that gift by African human male’s has turned out to be a curse for us original humans who’ve came behind this deed!!! After learning this I kept going which leads you to Africans creating any and everything of significance this world knows about. Eventually spreading that knowledge to the new group of sub humans created by Neanderthals in Europe and Asia. Those people learning over long periods of time and eventually betraying their father’s/teachers. White washing and claiming knowledge of their own. Eventually after thousands of years and Africans not operating as one and Waring with each other these children joined together as one and enslaved us. After that anyone born was born into a world of chaos being controlled by inferior men in every way and that known inferiority complex causing them plagiarize everything and use it to forever suppress this planet’s original people . Yet don’t be discouraged my brothers and sisters we’ve entered a new cycle of truth and we all shall awaken and reclaim our birth rights as this planet original people. “Let the truth be the power be the power that unites us all ☻.” Rasheede

  2. It’s because his name is not Jesus or nor he is white, His name is Yahusha and he is Black… That’s why y’all can’t find him… He is Hebrew…

    • How about a specific definition of what a soul is and proof of it's existence or the existence of an afterlife and does our consciousness survive intact? Until these are answered, we have no use for any gods, let alone specific, named ones
