Imagine if it got 100% proven that the OT was pure fiction, Jesus never lived, nor did Siddhārtha Gautama Buddha or Mohammed. Would this render the teachings and meanings of these religions irrelevant ?

I'm wondering how you as an individual would feel. So... there is no right answer but your own

For me personally, it wouldn't matter. The meaning of what was either said or even attributed to have been said by an historical figure whether factual or fictional doesn't affect what was written ad/or said.

Some people just put greater significance to it when it is believed to be from certain individuals.

This of course will upset or even cause outrage to a person for even considering the possibility of questioning the existence of a figure.

I have thought of about this before. I think my reaction would be mixed. It would not change that there are some good rules such as "do unto others as you would have them do unto you" but I would be angry as well that many have wasted years on a lie or myth. And lets not forget all the wars that have been fought in the name of God.
