Sunday disservice


The author of this post in making a case for Jesus H Christ tells us there were five hundred witnesses to the resurrection, and some of them famous. I for my case, would want to know the name of one eye witness among the five hundred.

He also says there were witnesses to the resurrection. Now, all my reading of the bible tell me all the people who went to the tomb found an empty tomb and Mary Magdalene did not observe the resurrection event.

He also claims as support for the resurrection story, that several names are given. How this builds the case for the resurrection when we don’t have independent accounts of these various witnesses I don’t see.

I am not a lawyer, but I think the claim that

The life, death and resurrection of Jesus Christ would stand up in a court of law.

Is untrue. There are few Bible stories, if any, that would stand in a court of law. Unless of course, that court was one that ruled based on miracles.

Happy Sunday everyone.

    Eleven witnesses testified to the divine origin of the Book of Mormon’s golden plates. Of those eleven, eight claimed they’d handled them directly and three claimed an angel had shown them the golden plates. We have their names, exact dates of birth and death, and in some cases, even portraits. None recanted on their death beds.

    What more proof do we need?

    I noticed he said “The death, burial and resurrection of Jesus are historically recorded events.”

    I just love it when Christians try to turn the bible into a book with “historically recorded events.”

    I am sparring with someone right now at The Friendly Atheist who is Gay and Trans, insists that Yahweh is not “aseitic” (Omnipotent), is full of certainty that he knows that Jesus was really exactly like a left wing peace activist hippy from Berkeley, California, etc. etc. It works for this person, so who am I to criticize?

    Except they still make statement that such and such is True.
