Bridging the Gap Between Believers and Skeptics
Lewis's trilemma - Wikipedia
I know, I know, there's a lot of threads out there that are already like this. But I wanted to make a specific poll that asks people this specific question. I am not looking to proselytize anyone. I am not even a Christian. There is a saying that Evangelicals using apologetics say that Jesus must be a liar, lunatic or lord. In accordance to The Friendly Atheist's video, I am also adding legend into the mix. And also lost, for people who believe that he never existed. And I'm also adding a resounding "other" option who don't like any of the other five options.
I see Jesus as a legend. I believe the movie Zeitgeist proved this. Zeitgeist can be found on YouTube for free, and it explains that the Jesus myth was not very uncommon. Even Confucius was once believed to be born immaculately, centuries after he died. I needed to add the idea that he was a legend, because I don't see him as the other three. Lost as an option seems fairly plausible option as well, but there seems to be more evidence that he did exist than not. The difference between legend and lost is a legend existed but stories were changed over time, whereas answering the poll with lost means you believe Jesus never existed.
TL;DR - What is Jesus? A lair, lunatic, lord, legend or lost? Or other? Let us know what you think below. And this is in debates, so feel free to debate each other on your belief of Jesus!
