For those interested in the question of the historicity of Jesus, here's an interesting site: http://www.magi.com/~oblio/jesus/home.htm

The author argues that Jesus was initially a purely mythological entity (or, more neutrally, a revealed, spiritual entity) that was later transfigured into the allegedly historical personage we're all familiar with today. (This is a minority position; even in liberal bible scholarship, the predominant view is that Jesus was a real person who was later mythologized.) The quickest way to get familiar with the arguments is by going to the "Quick Assembly" link at the top of the page.

Similar arguments probably apply to Babaji and other vaunted religious figures of lore - maybe even more so, given Babaji's relatively late alleged appearance in the 1800s.
