Is that quote from RationalWiki?
Jesus was not a myth, Paul who wrote a lot of the New Testament is NOT a myth. Timothy was not a myth, The deciples were not Myths.
Josephus was not a myth.
Why is it so hard to believe that the Bible is not a myth?
oh that's right it's religious so therefore throw everything out (even the eyewitness accounts from Luke, Mark, John, and Matthew)
You seem to confuse potential historical people with the stories being told. Were they real? Personally I wont say they weren't but at the same time that doesn't equate to being actual factual people. What is myth are the many, many of the stories told, through allegories and parables. People being turned into pillars of salt, a talking burning bush, miracles of jesus, parting of the red sea and other super natural aspects, those are myths. Not a single shred of evidence backs that up and no old writings do not count as evidence. Even the so called eye witness accounts were not written down til long after the fact and that is according to historical religious scholars. There isn't even agreement that the writings are from the authors themselves. So calling them eyewitness accounts doesn't make it factual. Myths do not mean they can't contain real historical figures and still not be a myth.
