If your Supernatural Claim takes an entire Book to prove it happened…it probably didn’t

Every time I request the evidence for the Resurrection of Jesus from a Christian blogger or pastor, the first thing they do is refer me to some apologist’s book.  Dear Christian friend, if it takes an entire book to prove that your first century miracle happened, it most probably didn’t.

Open your eyes, friends.  You wouldn’t read a Mormon apologist’s book to decide whether or not to believe Joseph Smith’s supernatural claims.   You wouldn’t read a Muslim apologist’s book to decide whether or not to believe Mohammad’s supernatural claims.  And you wouldn’t read a Hindu apologist’s book to decide whether or not to believe the supernatural claims of the Hindu gods.

Nope.  You would expect the person making the supernatural claim to give you sufficient evidence within a five minute conversation…unless that supernatural claim is YOUR supernatural claim…then you expect us all to read your apologist’s book to believe it.

Something’s fishy, folks.
