A recent story about a statue of Jesus has atheists up in arms on how a statue can be on federal grounds even though the land was leased by a veteran’s group. One such atheist said that since he believes that there are no written records from the when Jesus was alive, His existence is nothing more than hearsay.
My response would have to be: Does your past that is not recorded not exist? Once you can no longer see the starting point of a journey, does it no longer remain? Since Buddha never wrote anything down, did he not live? Just because it was not written during the time, does not mean it did not happen.
