Even if you believe in the Supernatural, the Resurrection Story is not believable

One of the primary lines of attack that Christians use against skeptics of the Resurrection is that we are biased against the supernatural.  If we would just allow for the supernatural, they say, the evidence for the Resurrection of Jesus would be undeniable.

But there is a problem.

Muslims believe in the supernatural and they do not believe that Jesus rose from the dead.  Jews believe in the supernatural, and even more, they believe that the Old Testament is the Word of God and believe in the prophecies of a coming messiah!  So why don’t these people believe the Christian evidence for the Resurrection?

Answer:  Because the evidence presented by Christians to support their belief that this supernatural event actually took place is so very, very weak that even if one believes in the supernatural it is completely unbelievable.
