    This is the kind of shockingly bad argument...

    Again, clearly I'm out of my depth with you gentlemen. I see there'll be no getting you into heaven. You've got me.

    Clearly I would be unable to challenge an intellect and wit such as yours.

    No need to get sarcky now Jesus wouldn't like it would he.

    Let's suspend our disbelief for a moment and pretend you have a friend. Your friend has shown himself to be correct and reliable on every occasion. Now he tells you something that is hard to believe and unverifiable. You would be inclined to trust him based on your past experiences with him.

    That's what faith is like. It is not belief despite the evidence, but rather trust based on a witness who has shown himself to be reliable.


    Your analogy is interesting yet not quite correct. To be analogous with the bible my friend would have proven to be correct on occasion with respect to mundane details yet have pants afire on every significant detail.

    Maybe there are still traces of DNA on these. Scientists will be able to resurrect jesus, but this time it will be in a petri dish. They'll use stem cells from a fetus and will have to implant it in a woman's vaginal. What if her name is Mary? What if the story of jesus was really a prediction of the future? It would connect the dots after all this time and the story would make sense.



    I read a terrible book called "The Genesis Code" by John Case (airport pickup) whose

    SPOILER ALERT





    entire theme is centered around EXACTLY that.
