That's because the most obvious examples of things that other people should have sat up and taken note of happened when Jesus was born. There's also no record of anyone witnessing the Sermon on the Mount, either, but that's something that wouldn't have rated anything more than an "I was passing through Jerusalem today, saw a big group of Jews having a religious ceremony" note in someone's journal. The point is that given the obvious liberties that were taken as some parts of the Jesus narrative, how can we be sure of the truth of any of the rest of it given the lack of any sort of independent confirmation?
