The simplest Christian can know that the resurrection of Jesus is an historical fact by the testimony of the Holy Spirit in his heart.
–Apologist William Lane Craig in his book, The Son Rises
Yes, dear Readers, subjective feelings and perceptions are the real reason why most Christians believe in the resurrected Jesus. They are absolutely certain that their warm, comforting feelings and perceptions about this ancient tale are evidence of the presence of a spirit (ghost) living inside their bodies. Apologetic historical arguments are used to provide a cover of respectability for the educated, secular world. However, the non-eyewitness authorship of the Gospels [a position held by most Bible scholars, including most Catholic Bible scholars who believe in the bodily resurrection of Jesus] strips this sliver of respectability from conservative Christianity and reveals the naked truth:
Christian belief is based primarily on subjective feelings, perceptions, and personal experiences, not on historical evidence.
