Jesus-Never-Existed Dot Com: Still Out There...

...and still a steaming pile of pseudo intellectual dung.

The Webmasters of this site are still roping the ignorant into believing the site's spurious outdated claims.

This is not surprising, considering the comical condescending commentary that drips from every article on this site. The site founder, Kenneth Humphries, clearly has a hatred for Judeo-Christianity and he seems bent on belittling these faiths every chance he gets.

Even sadder still: it appears that while archaeological discoveries going on TO THIS DAY are shedding new light on the history contained within the Bible, the people behind jesusneverexisted still continue to make claims that have been debunked by scholars who actually know what they're talking about. On top of that, not all these scholars are believers in God.

For example:

The Humpreys site still claims that there were no enslaved Canaanite peoples in Egypt, despite the evidence from a massive archaeological dig in the area of Egypt that the Bible referred to as Goshen, or the Land of Rameses. These digs have been going on for 30 years. Update, guys, update!

Here's a sample of the content right from the header page of jesusneverexisted.

Jesus threatens torture to his unforgiving slaves


"The kingdom of heaven may be compared to a king who wished to settle accounts with his slaves … The lord released a slave and forgave his debt.
But that same slave threw his fellow slave into prison. In anger his lord handed him over to be tortured until he would pay his entire debt.
So my heavenly Father will also do to every one of you, if you do not forgive your brother or sister from your heart."
– Matthew 18.23-35


So, from a simple story, we're supposed to assume Jesus endorses torture. Let's recap:

A king freed a BOND-SLAVE and released him from a huge debt.

We're supposed to ignore that fact the slave shafted one of his fellows for a fraction of what he was forgiven. So the King gave this ungrateful jerk what he was asking for. Outrageous.

On top that, it's a PARABLE. Google "parable", guys.

I could go on for hours.

The only thing sadder is that I still get links to this site dropped in my comments box as if I've never seen it and somehow it will torch my faith.

Riiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiight........

Another junk site is evilbible.com. There is an person on YouTube by the name of Styxhexenhammer who has that link up in the about section of his channel. He calls the link "The Truth about Christianity":

I know that one. It's run by Chris Baba, a webmaster who has such a bad reputation for ad homs that even his fellow atheists won't recommend evilbible as a site for serious discussion of religion.

There are a lot of those junk sites. Ex-Christian.net is another.

As for this Styx guy, I think that he used to be a Christian (or just a church-goer), but then he "realized" that it wasn't great or something, so now he is a satanist, and he hates it.

He also is into the Charles Manson case. On one of his videos, I told him to stick to analysis of that, and to stop bashing Christianity, because he doesn't know what he is talking about.
