[On the gospels being unreliable evidence]

Lets assume there were no biblical accounts of the resurrection in the bible. How many people do you think would still be Christians? I guess it sounds like evidence after all.

Gorramit, you can't use the Bible alone to prove the Bible!

You guess WHAT sounds like evidence? Without the biblical accounts, there is NO mention of Jesus except that which stems FROM the biblical accounts!

I don't know what you are mistaking for the sound of evidence, but to me it has the sound of one hand clapping.

Wait ... he's saying that no one would believe it if the Bible didn't say so, therefore the Bible must be right?

I think the kangaroo said it best: WTF mate?

But why would there be other accounts of something so mundane as a resurrection? I mean, that must've happened quite a lot for no one else to make mention of it right? Idiot.

It really doesn't matter what kind of evidence people like you are given, you're still gonna hold to your ideas, even if you have to twist them a little bit more to make them work.

Probably none. The whole religion is based on Jesus being God and if he stayed dead they couldn't make that claim.

I guess it sounds like evidence after all.

No, it sounds like a story invented to convince potential followers that your guy was the real thing and all those other Messiahs were fakes.

Well, maybe Harry Potter wouldn´t have been so successful if Ron hadn´t hit on Hermione but it doesn´t make the pair so suitable.

Guess the Star Trek must be real, then. Many, many people are Trekkies, after all.

Probably very, since that is the basis of Christ's divinity. Or, y'know, they'd be Christians on the basis of the morals Christ taught and not his miracles, but there'd still be far fewer Christians.

Still doesn't support your case, though, seeing as how that 'evidence' of leaving an important part of the religion out of its teachings could be used to validate any major religion, including Judaism, Hinduism, and even the 'dreaded' Islam. So no, you fail logic.
