No historian or philosopher who lived at the time had anything to say about Jesus's alleged mircles. Neither did they record anything regarding Jesus as a religious leader. His Sermon on the Mount, his triumphant entry into Jerusalem and the controversy that surrounded his ministry (so intense that the chief priests supposedly conspired to have him killed) seem strangely unknown to them. Philo, the early first century Jewish historian who lived at the right time and place, who wrote extensively about religious and political matters of his day, wrote not one word about Jesus.
Try reading Josephus. He was a Jewish historian of the time. The early Christians did read his works. And did mention Jesus An extraordinary man if you could call him a man. who was a doer of great works. I'm parphrasing there I don't remember the exact qoute.

I AM NOT BELITTLEING YOU! I am bringing to light a question YOU YOURSELF SHOULD ASK. Is it my fault I refuse to believe in a man and his gang of friends that there is absolutely no historical fact for? If he was so amazing and did such great and wonderful things, historians and polical people of the time would have written about it and NO ONE DID, and all I am asking is why do you think that was?
