One common claim you'll hear from some atheists, pagans and other non-Christians is that "Jesus didn't exist." The claim that Jesus didn't exist is rejected by historians. It's a subject now known as the "Christ Myth theory" or as I like to call it "Christ Myth Conspiracy Theory."
The most recent conspiracy nut looking to gain his 60 minutes of fame from this "theory" was a man named Michael Paulkovich, a quick Google search tells you all that you need to know about him: He's not an academic of any sort. He doesn't belong to any university. He's a self-professed anti-theist who has self-published a book on Jesus. The Dailymail eventually decided to publish his story for click-baits and it led to this:
Michael Paulkovich's bad scholarship becomes apparent when you read the list of the "126" people he's put there. Only a few were actual historians who recorded the history of their time and at least several there did mention Jesus (which Michael refuses to mention). Anyone with Google is able to debunk the lies actually and guess who does? An atheist.
As the piece goes on to explain, most of the people mentioned in the list didn't record history and therefore citing them as evidence for Jesus not existing because they didn't mention him is a fallacy since they didn't mention many of their own contemporariness in their writings.
This is also mentioned in this article:
Published two years ago so we see that the Christ-mythers are still using a long since debunked argument.
When we look at actual contemporary historians, we find many that did mention Jesus.
