First off, who said anything about the Bible? I was talking about historical fact (that a teacher named Jesus existed and was crucified in the early 30s AD. No one said anything else. Any serious scholar will tell you that that is considered to be factual, and that it is attested to by period secular documents.
Secondly, Buddha also existed, although he was quite a bit older than Christ. His name was Siddhattha Gotama, and most historians will back me up on that, too. Santa also existed. His name was Nikolaos of Myra, and he had a broken nose.

I believe Jesus existed, but not the coming back to life etc.....
After that is too much supernatural and religious lark for me, which is all superstition and only for the weak to believe in (IMO)

Didn't the Quran also have references to Jesus?

That's called a conspiracy theory.
“One of the biggest problems with the world today is that we have large groups of people who will accept whatever they hear on the grapevine, just because it suits their worldview—not because it is actually true or because they have evidence to support it. The really striking thing is that it would not take much effort to establish validity in most of these cases… but people prefer reassurance to research.”

Isn't the story of Jesus told in the bible, which is a religious book itself?
