There is no evidence that 99.99% of the people who have ever lived, actually lived. Other than the few who had their names carved into stone, or written on scrolls which were very well preserved, word-of-mouth was about all they had. No printing presses, hard drives, film, video, or still photography to prove they lived... If the powers of the day did not wish some significant figure to be remembered, they would suppress any writings about them.
Word of mouth, wich eventually finds its way into print, is valid history in most cases. Scholars who doubt the existence of Jesus are in the distinct minority, yet "it's clear" to you that he never existed. Please...
He existed and so did many of the mythological people whom you say Jesus is merely an "amalgam" of.
