The user wax eagle deleted my answer https://christianity.stackexchange.com/a/4921/282. His comment, to justify his action, is wrong. He wrote:
I'm deleting this because there is in fact supporting historical evidence that Jesus was an historical figure (see the works of Josephus and others). No one disputes this fact. en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jesus (see second paragraph)
The claim: No one disputes this fact. is wrong. It is scientifically disputed. an abstract can be found here on Skeptics.
And here is a discussion about the historicity of Jesus on main which contains a link to said Skeptics topic.
As I said - not every Christian takes the bible literally. Many Christians only believe in a Christian spirit, but not in the miracles as fact. Eliminating deviant positions seems not justified to me - for the same reason, JEC-posts could be deleted for being in the wrong spirit. Or OEC-posts. Who decides what the right spirit is?
I protest and want my answer to be reopened.
