You do not seem to be aware that the acceptance of Jesus' existence has for at least a century been bolstered by a series of core criteria which are totally unsupported by the historical method. Many biblical historians and academics have used things like Criterion of embarrassment, Criterion of dissimilarity, Criterion of multiple attestation.

These criteria are not used by historians outside of the "Jesus Industry".

As a result, the academic method to which you refer above, is seriously flawed.
