This is a quote from the Errancy discussion list from about two years ago:Stuart Shepherd wrote:
"What arguments are there for the resurrection of Jesus? The empty tomb? If a corpse is missing do we assume that the person resurrected or do we try [to] find the guys who moved the body? The post resurrection appearances of Jesus? Jesus only showed himself to his own followers. History is full of amazing claims by groups where the only witnesses are members of the group. Nobody ever accepts these claims because they lack credibility.
There is no evidence that would stand up in a court of law. Unfortunately, Christians have been brainwashed by parents, friends, family, the media, their church, and their school."
