... I don't even know where to start. The skepticism of Jesus starts with the fact that he was purported to be literally magic. He could literally do things that are impossible. If La-ba'shum was reported to have shot lightning from his eyes and fire from his ass there'd be a bit more skepticism surrounding him. If belief in La-ba'shum was the grounds for suffering or death people would be looking at him a bit more closely. You mention "biographies" of Jesus. Where? What? You mean the Bible? Hardly a biography in that it skips 20 or more years of his life. And...actually what else ever mentions Jesus? Also the quality of the evidence comes in when you look at what it is: one is an impersonal list of kings of an empire, the other is a huge propaganda tool meant to expound a point and push an agenda. Skepticism about Jesus is not about "belief", it's about observable facts: there were many, MANY god like figure before Jesus that had all the same characteristics (virgin birth, son of god, heal the sick) the Bible is the only thing that mentions Jesus, or ANY of the events in the Bible which partly takes place in Egypt (the most obsessive record keepers in history "forgot" to mention that one day all the water turned to blood or all the first born died or all the slaves up and left) and, again, he could literally do magic. Amazing how all the great Saints are from a time when the European world was at it's highest religious fever, and how the number of religious people who can literally fly, or teleport, or heal the sick with just a touch, or talk to animals has completely disappeared with the invention of the camera. The "miracle" prerequisite for sainthood by the Catholic Church has gone from "used belief in God to fly" to "was REALLY nice".
