Over at theologyweb JB gave me the following challenge: " Tell you what, though. I challenge you to a formal debate, either in the Wrestling Ring at TheologyWeb or via blog" As they delete my posts etc I will debate him on the resurrection here. Here is my opening post:
Science has shown for a long time that dead people stay dead - the message obviously fails to get through to xians. Science shows that bodies rot away and are eaten by worms and once something has been eaten by worms how can it go to heaven?
Richard Dawkins has looked into the historical evidence for this and colcuded "Accounts of Jesus's resurrection and ascension are about as well documented as Jack and the Beanstalk." So no good trying this line of enquiry.
Also most pagan gods rose from the dead and so why don't you believe mithras, dionysus etc etc resserected?
If I were JB I would give up and admit defeat. Infact I've pretty much won this debate in mky opening post.
