The Ressurection was logically impossible.

mongeese

I negate that the Ressurection was logically impossible, but first, some definitions:The Ressurection - the event in which Jesus of Nazareth was clinically dead, then three days later became aliveLogically impossible - contradicting any law of logic, or any scientific law or fact derived from the laws of logic, although I reserve the right to challenge whether or not a scientific law or fact is truly based in logicLaws of logic - http://atheism.about.com/...
