A few years ago a internet film titled "Zeitgeist" achieved fame in the world wide web. The film presented three major events/movements which have influenced society (Christianity, September 11th Attacks, Banking system) and argued that they are nothing more than conspiracies aimed at the goal of social control. Of interest to me was the first part which argued that there was no historical Jesus, instead there is onlu a Jesus based on a conglomerate of Egyptian myths. Few responses to the film have been adequate and today I found one of them. Here is a very good point by point response. Also, check out Gregory Boyd's work Jesus Legend: A Case for the Historical Reliability of the Synoptic Jesus Tradition for a good counter argument to arguments similar to the Zeitgeist film. Even (Christ Myth advocate) Robert Price recommends it!
