Do You Believe in the Historicity of the Crossing of the Rubicon Due to the Testimony of a (holy) Spirit?

The simplest Christian can know that the resurrection of Jesus is an historical fact by the testimony of the Holy Spirit in his heart.

—William Lane Craig, in the Son Rises

 

Imagine debating someone on the historicity of any other alleged event in history and having him or her tell you:  I don’t care what evidence you present for your position, a spirit tells me that my position on the issue is the correct position.

How can you debate someone with such a bizarre bias?

You can’t.

This is why it is a waste of time to debate conservative Christians on the historical evidence for the alleged reanimation of the corpse of Jesus of Nazareth.  No matter what evidence you present, it will never be enough.  The imaginary ghost inside their head will always tell them that the evidence is wrong.

In order to win a debate with conservative Christians, we must first dispel their belief in ghosts (spirits).  How do you do that???

Nope. There are no ghosts inside birds either.

  1. That’s a good question, Gary. I think only if the faith-based believer is willing to listen and pursue a line of thought that rationally leads to a point beyond the absurdity of the myth will the believer start to question the insanity of “faith.”

    But the believer has to be open-minded and that is not an acceptable state of mind for millions upon millions of closed-minded Christians who are more than willing to float along believing that old-time saying: Ignorance is Bliss.

    For people like W.L. Craig, it’s a cash cow.

  2. They do have faith in their own whitewashed version of history. Manifest destiny “The special virtues of the American people and their institutions” and all the crap that wiped out millions of indigenous people wasn’t that bad and after all, it was gods will, and he can do no wrong.
