Zindler: Where Jesus Never Walked

I've mentioned the site

a number of times the last month when claims about Jesus have surfaced. His essay helped me to realize that I was not obligated to even accept the historicity of Jesus, let alone the supposed miracles.

I've heard a little bit of support from the theist apologists for the existence of Jesus and Nazareth, but not as much as I hoped. One even claimed the ability to refute all atheist arguments, but wouldn't produce. No one has seemed to want to really take Zindler to task. I was hoping for one of two results:

--Someone can come up with some really good criticisms of Zindler's conclusions.

--No one can come up with any good criticisms to discredit Zindler.

I'm not sure yet, which it is.

Are there any theist-apologists out there able and willing to give it a try?

If any of the atheist-apologists want to support or criticize Zindler, please do.

If Jesus didn't exist, this is incredibly important, I think, in the God-Science debate. If hundreds of millions or billions of believers in Jesus could believe so greatly in a fabrication, how much can we trust what any religion tells us about God or anything else?
