Evidence of Jesus Christ’s life, resurrection and how atheists are foolish

First, to be an atheist, you are taking the illogical position that the Lord Yeshua (Jesus) did not exist. 

Jesus is on ancient Roman records to have been crucified in 28 AD.  Even Orthodox Jews, who still hate Him, acknowledge His existence and death, but have trouble with his birth and resurrection.  As far as they knew, Jesus was born “out of wedlock”.  They were unaware that Mary gave birth (her first of five) while still being a virgin…, the first time.

However, the Pharisees (modern Orthodox) knew about His resurrection, but choose to remainin denial. 

The tomb of Jesus, which can still be seen today in the Garden Tomb area (not the Catholic traditional site), still has the metal spikes which were sheared off when the angel rolled the stone away.  The ruling class of Jews paid the Roman guards to lie about how the tomb was reopened, and to say that they fell asleep and the disciples of Yeshua carried Him away. 

But in the Roman court of inquiry which followed, the Jews admitted that they paid the soldiers to fib, otherwise, the guards would have been put to death.  This is history.  It took 90 tons of force to break the seals, and only one angel to do it. 

Do you also deny the existence of angels?

Why was the body of Jesus never found…, at least by unbelievers?  How is it that God managed to have the Ark of the Covenant hidden for 600 years, right under the place where Yeshua was crucified, so that His blood would flow down the earthquake crack of the hill of rock, and drip 24 feet down upon the West end of the Ark? 

This was discovered at 2:00 PM local time, on January 6th, 1982.  Israel is waiting for the proper situation to reveal the Ark to the world.  At least be wise enough to look this up yourself on YouTube – Ron Wyatt Ark of the Covenant.

To be an atheist, you nearly have to be as foolish as the Muslim, whom we will address in the next chapter. 

I know that there are those, who are using the excuse that they were driven to Atheism because of the evils they encountered by pastors and priests, but that will not hold up in the day of Judgment.  You were in an evil assembly, which Yeshua will arbitrate.  It’s up to you to seek true salvation, as taught by the Apostles (Acts 19:1-6).

About the Author

- Herman Cummings is a computer data analyst, who used his training to analyze the written text of Genesis. On EasterSunday, in 1990, a lady stood up in Sunday School and asked the pastor “How can I teach my children about Adam & Eve, when all they are taught is evolution in school?”. The pastor could only say “Just believe the Bible”. That was of no help to the lady. So Herman Cummings began his research to resolve the issue, since the worlds of Creationism and Theology could not literally reconcile Genesis with scientific reality. After receiving the revelation of the first chapter from the Lord in December 1993, Herman Cummings became the world’s leading expert on the book of Genesis (Bereshit).

    Just as the scribes in the First Century heard voices in their heads to put rod to soft clay and how the New Testament borrowed fairy tales from previous Pagan gods to endow Yeshua Ben Yosef, an executed apocalyptic preacher, with supernatural powers to become a demigod, there still remains no peer-reviewed evidence or historical accounts to back up lunatic ranting. Loved the opium dream depiction of the Ark being under the cross, though. Just one more snake oil merchant contributing to the Dumbing Down of America. Pathetic.

  2. peter Hinchliffe says:

    Oh dear, It seems that the inability to understand how the ability to empathise,to work cooperatively and care for each other could aid survival and become a favoured trait in evolution- means god.
    These man made gods have outlived their usefulness, for what they were ever worth they are now only an impediment on progress- walk into the light!

  3. Claim: Evidence Of Jesus Christ’s Life, Resurrection And How Atheists Are Foolish says:

    […] and so we have an example of exactly this line of thinking, so lets take a look. Our example today comes from “Global Dispatches”, and starts as follows […]

  4. Philip Rose says:

    Please provide a link to the source material for your outlandish claims. Specifically, the trial transcripts and written records from the Roman trial where the Jews allegedly tried to bribe Roman officials to lie about the tomb.

    If you can’t then it’s clear you’re just doing more Christian anti-Semite Jew bashing.

    • Frank says:

      The writings of Gamaliel detail as much. In fact, the Catholics can’t stand the hysterical ramblings of Mary after Jesus was crucified, but Gamaliel also witnessed the salvation of Pontious Pilate and his family after seeing the empty tomb.

      I personally couldn’t deny the eye witness accounts: why would these men die holding on to the lie of the resurrection if it wasn’t true…there was no money, fame etc…a lie doesn’t make sense to me.

      • Mike says:

        Gamaliel never wrote anything like what you’re talking about, and if you want to know why people would die for something they know is a lie, ask Jim Jones, David Koresh, Joseph Smith, or Marshall Applewhite.

  5. Curt+Mudgen says:

    There is a lot wrong here. For starters, being an atheist does not mean a person automatically rejects the existence of a man in ancient Palestine by the name of Jesus. He doubts his divinity.

    Secondly, there are NO Roman records of Jesus being crucified. There are NO contemporary records of Jesus, at all. Period. The best you have are gospels written some 20 to 60 years after his supposed death, papers written in Greek after being passed around dozens of times by word of mouth, stories that began in a different language from what was written down. But even more so than that, that’s not even any kind of evidence of his divinity. We’ll still talking about his existence alone.

    I don’t know which is more humorous. The author claiming there are Jews who know about Jesus or some empty hole in the ground is evidence of a god. Idiots found this empty tomb, found it matched the description of the tomb in the bible, and now claim it’s authentic while ignoring how it could be anyone’s tomb.

    I try to say believers aren’t stupid. The writer of this horrible article really tests my patience on this.

  6. John says:

    “… Atheists are just as moral as Christians…”

    Actually… An argument can easily be made that atheists (at least with regard to “rational” atheists) are more moral than christians. I say this because religious morality is morality by fiat. Such a moral system could easily be argued to actually be amoral, since it is essentially a reward/punishment rooted in obedience, and is only arbitrarily linked to the evaluation of what is right and wrong.

    • Ray says:

      But what is right or wrong without an authority? The atheists have no authority or accountability to that “moral system” hence we get Pol Pot, Mao or Stalins

      • Mike says:

        You left off Hitler, who managed to do what he did with the help of a country full of Lutherans and Catholics. Funny, that.

        • Brandon Jones says:

          Hitler has free will to revolt against the moral system from a Creator. You presumption is that atheists have no moral authority but somehow (as a population) get moral. I gave you “Atheist” examples of how that assertion has been false in human history.

          So, where does the moral system for the atheist driven world come from and who determines what is right or wrong?

          • Mike says:

            It comes from exactly the same place it does for the Christians: us. See, they’re wrong about God existing, so it can’t possibly come from a god.

          • Frank says:

            I have to agree with Brandon here, you are dodging the question. If the moral code comes from each individual, then there is no moral code.

            Just “each to his own” and you have no right/argument to criticize or ban any behavior.

            I feel sorry for the atheist because he can become so callous and uncaring towards others – why should he care? What’s in it for him to care at all?

          • Mike says:

            I’m sorry you’re incapable of understanding how human beings can be the arbiters of morality, Frank – that you think morality must necessarily be somehow related to the nature of the universe.

      • Curt Mudgen says:

        …or the Crusades, Inquisitions and the fact you would be killed for not believing in a god throughout the middle ages. Uganda wants to kill people for being gay TODAY. What’s that about morality coming from your god?

  7. Mike says:

    This article is rife with ridiculously counterfactual nonsense. The author clearly does not have the slightest idea what he’s talking about. Most of the historical claims he has made are outright lies – especially the mention of Ron Wyatt, the thoroughly discredited pseudo-archaeologist considered to be such a quack that even the likes of Ken Ham’s Answers in Genesis urges people to disbelieve his frauds.

    • Mike says:

      Here’s proof that AiG calls Ron Wyatt a fraud.

      Are the claims true? If they are, such a staggeringly impressive list would mean that Ron Wyatt had been almost as miraculously assisted by God as the patriarch Moses. If, however, a careful examination of just one or two of these claims reveals them to be false, fanciful or fraudulent, the “divine leading” option evaporates, and it is clear that Christians are being seriously misled.

      The article goes on to describe the many, many false claims Wyatt and his friend Jonathan Gray have made, concluding:

      The Wyatt/Gray “track record” of false claims on other subjects (see main text) makes it easy to dismiss these current claimants to finding the Ark of the Covenant, along with all their “reasons” as to why no one is conveniently allowed to access any hard evidence.

  8. RandyW says:

    Wrong from the very start. Denial of the existence of Jesus the Nazarene, Yeshua bar Yusef, the itinerant rabbi, is not a prerequisite to atheism. But, no atheists accept the claim that he was any kind of deity. Indeed, if similar “evidence” were presented regarding any other religion, you would point out the logical fallacies made (e.g., assuming an angel moved a stone that was held by sheared metal chocks, and because the sheared chocks exist, that means the story about the angel must be true…in the same way the story about Paul Bunyan says he dragged his axe behind him, carving out the Grand Canyon, and because the Grand Canyon exists, we know Paul Bunyan existed). Yet, with special pleading, your “evidence” ought not be exposed to the same type of critical scrutiny. Confirmation bias is powerful and pervasive, and it must be recognized when it occurs to be able to avoid repeating it. This page is jam-packed with confirmation bias.

    • Tom G says:

      Everyone has a conscious, whether you like it or not, to deny the existence of a God makes it easier to continue to do the things that you generally know to be unacceptable.

      • Mark says:

        Ah, atheists are only atheists because they want to love with no morals. That old bigoted chestnut. Why are our prisons not filled with atheists and our Universities not empty of them if that was the case?

        Atheists are just as moral as Christians, the difference is we do good because we see the real world value of good deeds rather than expecting some posthumous reward or fearing posthumous punishment.

        Please stop using this terrible, terrible argument.

        • Brandon Jones says:

          Of course atheists can choose to do good, be good or perform good deeds. The real question is why? If there is no higher accountability, there is no reason to have a moral system or obedience to it.

          In other words, how dare the atheist tell someone that they can’t do something to perpetuate their seed as natural selection is their sole motivation in life.

          • Mike says:

            Your argument is nothing more than the fallacy of the argument from consequences. “If atheists are correct, then morality is a more difficult enterprise than the simple obeying of divine commandments. I dislike this consequence. Therefore, atheists are not correct.”

            In other words, I could simply reply to what you said with “yes, and?” – and you would be no closer to refuting the atheist’s position.

          • Mike says:

            By the way, the idea that humans would default to depravity without a god-based morality is a lie that your religion has invented. Humans are not inherently evil.

            Here’s the thing: I commit exactly the amount of rape, murder, incest, and genocide that I want to. It just so happens that this amount is none.

          • Brandon Jones says:

            You are still not distinguishing your free will from the moral system. I’m happy you’ve chosen to not perform those heinous acts, but why? By who’s moral code you you decide not to perform acts.

            How do you know humans are not born evil?

          • Mike says:

            “By who’s moral code you you decide not to perform acts.”

            By mine. It’s really not hard, Brandon.

            “How do you know humans are not born evil?”

            Because humans are born without any behavioral tendencies at all, other than a need for food and protection.

      • Mike says:

        On the contrary, if you believe that any act whatsoever can be forgiven simply by asking God for forgiveness, nothing can possibly prevent a believer from any evil act.

        • Brandon Jones says:

          Of course, that is free will. God did not enslave the humans as satan attempts to bind us to our sin.

          Having a choice doesn’t disprove his existence.

      • ThorGoLucky says:

        Our human ape ability of compassion is all that’s needed to do the right thing, not imagined surveillance by a Big Brother God in the head.

        • Brandon Jones says:

          There is no reason for compassion based on natural selection, Darwinism and the undirected evolutionary process, so where did that come from?

          Moreover, if there is no accountablility, we be compassionate at all?

          • Mike says:

            >There is no reason for compassion based on natural selection, Darwinism and the undirected evolutionary process

            Your lack of understanding and imagination is not an argument.

          • Ray says:

            Imagination? What’s that got to do with it? That’s not science. Yeah, BTW, why did primates get imagination?

          • Brandon Jones says:

            Well, I’m asking for you to explain it a bit

          • Mike says:

            “Well, I’m asking for you to explain it a bit”

            No, you’re not. You’re asking leading, dishonest questions. You don’t believe it’s even possible.

      • RandyW says:

        1: It’s spelled “conscience.” Conscious is what you are when you’re not asleep or knocked out. Conscience is the voice in your head that tells you you’re doing something wrong when you’re doing something wrong. Psychopath is what you are when you think you need the threat of eternal torture to keep yourself from ignoring that voice in your head and going on a rape/torture/kill spree. If you think you need that to keep yourself from being a menace to society, that says far more about you than it does about us. Last I saw, “I believe in magic” wasn’t a prerequisite to not being a psychopath. Maybe you have a different copy of DSM-V than everybody else has. Care to share?

      • Brandon Jones says:

        Where does the conscience come from? Why did or would evolution give such a thing?

        Most interesting, how could it survive? Would the early empathetic organism, not wanting to kill, get killed by their animalistic brothers?

        • Mike says:

          Your understanding of evolution is weak to say the least. Individual organisms do not evolve; whole populations do.

          • Brandon Jones says:

            But the population is comprised of individuals. Are you suggesting that one day a population of creatures were suddenly empathetic, conscience to make decisions? All through no means other than their genetic mutations and environment?

          • Mike says:

            No, Brandon. Evolution is about gradual change. The changes occur in degrees. There isn’t some on/off switch for empathy, sociality, and so on. Different species exhibit these in different degrees, just like consciousness and morality.

        • ThorGoLucky says:

          You cannot have more than one pet at a time because they’ll animalisticly kill each other, eh? Mammals especially humans are social animals. I recommend reading a quality science book about evolution to dispell your misconceptions of it.

          • Brandon Jones says:

            Why are they social animals? Insulting me doesn’t answer the question. You believe in an unguided process, driven through genetic mutations etc… When there was that primitive group of primates and the first one was blessed with a conscience or empathy or humility and not the instinct to just eat, poop and reproduce – how did he survive among all the other animals?

            Dogs are domesticated, but that doesn’t mean they came that way. Your “quality science book” doesn’t address all of these emotions and social constructs which are in direct contradiction to natural selection and survival of the fittest.

          • Mike says:

            “When there was that primitive group of primates and the first one was blessed with a conscience or empathy or humility and not the instinct to just eat, poop and reproduce – how did he survive among all the other animals?”

            Did you miss where I said that *populations* evolve, not individuals?

          • Mike says:

            Oh, and by the way, plenty of species exhibit morality. It isn’t just humans. Morality is all throughout the animal kingdom.
