The Resurrection of Jesus meets the criteria of historicity

Bible-Defender
CosmicAlfonzo

I believe that the Resurrection of Jesus is a historical event that probably happened. It is impossible to reach 100% certainty.

I am an Agnostic Atheist looking for a Theist to have an honest and fair debate about the existence of God. I'm not looking for a game of semantics. If you have the guts to take this debate, you must abide by the following: 1. No use of Wikipedia. You can't use Wikipedia on a college paper. I won't tolerate it here. 2. No vague definition of words. If you use a word that can have several meanings, make it clear what you actually mean. 3. No references to Creationist websites. Creationists ar...
