I called bullshit on this the moment I heard it, but I didn't want to say anything back because I never heard of anybody else confirming or denying this before. I was in North Carolina a couple weeks ago during spring break on a volunteer(not really mission) trip with my church youth group in a very poor area. Me and my friend were the only atheists there, we went to help out, not because "god sent us". Anyway, we watched The Passion of the Christ that thursday(the anniversary apparantly, by the way I thought that the south park parody was over-exaggerating, but this seriously was the worst movie I have ever seen), and after it was over, our pastor told us that nobody can doubt Jesus's death because the Romans kept records of all crucifixions, and we have a record of his. I know the Romans were very good at keeping records, but I have never heard of a record of Jesus's death. Can anybody shed some light on this? Sorry if this isn't the right area to post, i would in Atheist vs Theist but I'm looking for more of only an answer to this question than a full historical Jesus debate.
