The inescapable logic of a man who claims to be Jesus

Sayeth Alan John Miller:

There’s probably a million people who say they’re Jesus and most of them are in asylums. But one of us has to be.

I mean, come on. ONE OF THEM HAS TO BE. Mr. Miller believes he has memories of his past life as Jesus Christ. Which makes no sense because Jesus wasn’t dead, so he couldn’t be reincarnated.

Killing all those fish really brought home the message of Christ for the kids

 Killing all those fish really brought home the message of Christ for the kids

God is just like some douche minister who kills a bunch of poor (but cheap!) fish to freak children out. Lesson learned.

If only those kids had moved faster. More could’ve been saved…

How low standards of evidence killed Lee Strobel’s faith in atheism

I quickly determined that the alleged resurrection of Jesus was the key. Anyone can claim to be divine, but if Jesus backed up his claim by returning from the dead, then that was awfully good evidence he was telling the truth.

Poor Lee Strobel. He was an atheist whose agnostic wife found Jesus and became Christian. He thought he might have to get a divorce! Luckily, he instead did a whole bunch of research about Christianity and discovered it was definitely true. Marriage saved.

Here is Strobel’s response to Ricky Gervais’ Easter Message. In it, Strobel lays out the reasons why he thinks the resurrection is a historical certainty, which is basically just a list of possible alternate explanations and then him making extremely tentative cases against these suggestions.

For example:

Was Jesus’ tomb empty? Scholar William Lane Craig points out that its location was known to Christians and non-Christians alike. So if it hadn’t been empty, it would have been impossible for a movement founded on the resurrection to have exploded into existence in the same city where Jesus had been publicly executed just a few weeks before.

Besides, even Jesus’ opponents implicitly admitted the tomb was vacant by saying that his body had been stolen. But nobody had a motive for taking the body, especially the disciples. They wouldn’t have been willing to die brutal martyrs’ deaths if they knew this was all a lie.

Right. Because no one in human history has ever lied to support a passionately-held conviction. Or to solidify the legitimacy of a movement they’re a part of.

Besides, it’s much more likely that a man came back to life and then flew off into the sky, never to be seen again.

I doubt that God is racist and homophobic…

I doubt that God is racist and homophobic but the Bible isn’t clear.
