    The only one I have heard of is Smithee and he is famous exactly because he didn`t exist.

    Maybe the list writer doesn`t know what "famous" means?

    I`m pretty sure everyone knows Alan Smithee is the fake name a director is ashamed to put his real name on a film. No one thinks Alan Smithee is real.

    Part of being famous is people need to have heard about you.

    If the point of this is to say these people were famous but only a few smart people know them, then I guess I`m famous since not too many people know me either.

    Someone needs to recheck the definition of famous...
    This list is more people who are famous for not actually existing. I`d already heard of Alan Smithee, but because he`s famous for being a pseudonym.
    I liked the Ali Larter one though, that was interesting.

    cobrakiller: "jesus is not on the list because we dont know if he actually existed or not."

    The only "proof" that Jesus existed is a fiction book. Jesus Christ is as real as Frodo Baggins.

    Jesus isn`t on the list because the author of this article isn`t a cynic.

    @Fizban: Just because you`ve never experienced proof of the existence Jesus Christ, doesn`t mean he is fictional.

    That`s not even close to being true. There are mentions and references to Jesus by secular, jewish sources of the time. If you`re gonna be sarcastic, at least be right.

    The only person on this list I`ve even remotely heard of is Alan Smithee and that`s only because my film teacher once wrote a letter to him complaining about a horrible film he had directed.

    To be fair though, the man Jesus actually existed and was fairly influential in the region (according to historians). Whether or not he was the son of god however...let that be for another day.

    Why all the not-very-famous people? There`s good reason to believe that William Shakespeare was a pen name used by a small circle of writers rather than an individual. Also Socrates probably didn`t exist, at least not as Plato described him. If they want to invoke a flame war, then religious figures like Jesus and Solomon are questionable at best as well.

    @Cobrakiller
    Tacitus mentions Christ as related from Christians at least 80 years after the events had supposedly taken place. here is the relevant chapter of Tacitus` Annals. When taken in context, he is basically saying "There are these people called `Christians` and this is what they believe". His account is a tertiary source on this subject and is not reliable enough to conclude anything from.

    show me historical proof OUTSIDE of the bible or other religious writings of a man named jesus christ
    hint:christ isnt a name its an honorific meaning "annointed" and jesus is a romanization of joshua
    so his name would have been something like joshua ben josef (joshua son of josef)
