Can we use Dawkins as a source for other material, or is that the only quote of his that you want to use?
I don't care what Dawkins said about what other historians would admit. The Jesus that is described in the Bible is a fictional character. No one walks on water or rises from the dead. The son of god was not born on Christmas to a virgin mom 2000 years ago. I'm sure there were dudes walking around claiming to be the son of god and I'm sure some of them had followers devoted to the delusion, but one guy who actually was the son of god didn't exist.

If George Washington had not been President of the United States, could one argue that he also did not exist?
