We accept that Socrates existed, though Socrates did not leave writings behind. A few people so intent on believing Jesus is imaginary have decided Socrates was too.

Cantor Rebuffs Obama On Immigration Reform
Yesterday, Barack Obama tried to open negotiations with the House of Representatives on comprehensive immigration reform using the tried and true Obama formula for winning friends and influencing people: snide, insulting, and argumentative.
