The Jesus Myth

Here's a good Wikipedia article about the Jesus myth.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jesus_myth_hypothesis

The idea is that not only wasn't Jesus a divine being; he never even existed as a historical figure and that the whole story is a fantasy fabrication pulled from different mythological and philosophical sources, amalgamated together by monks working at the tip of the sword. Emperor Constantine needed a state religion to unify the Roman Empire, so he invented Christianity by merging a bunch of cults in vogue at the time, creating a bogus religion from spare parts.
