No Evidence for Jesus

I have heard once again the ridiculous claim that there is “no evidence for a historical Jesus.” Once again, I must point out that young-earth creationists say the same thing, “there is no evidence for evolution.” In both cases, either the individuals really mean “there is evidence, but I do not accept the conclusions experts draw about it,” or otherwise they are simply ignorant and showing this off.

How do you respond when someone makes a dogmatic assertion which clearly conveys that they don’t know what they are talking about?
