Jesus Christ only religious figure absent from Knowledge Graph —Steve— 7/7/14 10:02 PM
Hello, I've noticed that Jesus Christ  isn't part of the knowledge graph, and never has been, but Muhammad, Moses, Buddha, and mostly all other religious figures are there. Why the absence of Jesus?

Possibly because of the "controversy" surrounding Jesus. Everyone accepts who Muhammad, Moses and Buddha are, but not every-one accepts Jesus is the Son of God. If they define him as a prophet, Christians could take offence, if they define him as the Son of God, Muslims could take offence.... that is one argument it might be better to stay out off (if you are Google).

Tolumi, I could say the same about Muhammad. No religion that is acceptable by everyone in the same way. Jesus Christ is the most valuable and significant historical person of our age, so he deserve presence in the Knowledge graph.

I think Muhammad is different because Muhammad is a Muslim religious icon and no other religion saving Islam has him in their text (i think).

Whereas Jesus is in Jewish, Christian and Islamic texts, however there are differences in how he is viewed.

Jews regard him as a false messiah
Christians view him as the Son of God
Muslims view him as just another prophet

He more than any other religious icon spans across different religions and is viewed completely differently in each of them. It will be difficult for Google to define him categorically.

Jesus, at the very least, is a person of authentic human & historic knowledge. Roman & Greek historians & Josephus vouch for His life, death, burial & that eyewitnesses said He was resurrected. Why doubt the history of Jesus when it is reported the same way that Herodotus, Julius Caesar, Alexander the Great were written about or reported?

Google does not have Jesus in the Knowledge Graph not because he is a "controversional figure" (the word controversy bears no meaning in the modern era because everything is literally a controvery. Muhammad, Moses, Buddha, etc. are no more controversial figures than Jesus.

For whatever reason, Google executives are apparently anti-Christian. Talk about controversial (and conspiratorial at that). Why are they this way? Who knows.

Even from a secular point of view, Jesus is still an invaluable historical figure in terms of religion and, well, history. He existed. Historians do not deny this. Jesus of Galilee existed as surely as Muhammad, Buddha and Gandhi. Jesus is an important figure in two religions: Islam and Christianity. Christian doctrine expresses him as the Christ, the Son of God and Islam upholds him as the Messiah, but not the Son of God, rather the Highest Prophet (higher even than Muhammad).

Google should add Jesus because he is, up to this day and age, the most significant religious figure in all of history.
