Jesus is also the only religious figure that, historically, we can prove existed.

Depending on what you define as "religious," and what you accept as "proof."

Muslims would point out paperwork such as the achtiname, which is stashed away somewhere in Istanbul, last I heard; it's got Muhammad's signature and a handprint.

Then there's Mormon and Quaker leaders...and Joan of Arc...innumerable other saints.

Historian Josephus and later Tacitus mention Jesus either directly or tangentially in their writings. There is also the Pilate Stone and other things of the time that lend credence to the existence of Jesus.
