    Thallus (52AD) Very hostile to christianity, he writes and mocks the earthquakes and the darkness that fell in Judea surrounding the Resurrection.

    Tacitus (56-120AD) He is one of the most trusted ancient historians. He was a Senator under the Emperor of Asia. He writes about Christ suffering under Pilate because of superstitions, and about Nero blaming his followers for a fire that broke out in Rome, therefore Nero tortured the christians.

    Mara Bar-Serapion (70AD) was a philosopher who wrote of the Jews killing their wise king (Jesus)

    Phlegon (80-140AD) was a historian who wrote about the darkness and eclipse that took place, again in Judea surrounding the time of the Resurrection.

    Pliny the Younger (61-113AD) He wrote to the Roman Emperor about the Christians who meet on a fixed day of the week and sung songs to Jesus as if He were a God.

    Suetonius (69-140AD) A roman historian who wrote about the exiling of Christians, and about Nero blaming Christians for various crimes and thus punishing them severely.

    Lucian of Samosata: (115-200 A.D.) Mocks christians for worshiping the criminal Jesus.

    Celsus (175AD) writes of Mary being put out due to adultery with a solider. Then writes that Jesus learned magic in Egypt and came back and used this to fool people into believing He was a God.

    I could go on, but lets see if you research these.

    There isn't one and anyone with common sense knows he never existed.

    • Lucy, you appear to live in a self-created delusional world where if you simply say something, that means it is true. Using your system of "proof", nobody born a hundred years before you ever existed.

    To my knowledge, there are only two other sources to Jesus that were near contemporaneous, Josephus and Tacitus, but Tacitus' reference is to the beliefs of the Christians, not to the existence of Christ himself, and Josephus' text (both places it occurred) is hotly debated.

      Ooops, you used eye-witness instead of lie-witness.
