I first posted this back when I was on The Christian Forums(which I will be allowed back in June, later this year) http://www.christianforums.com/t7683394-22/#post61682538
Going through every "naturalistic" myth and will leave The Resurrection as The Only Explanation, not best or most probable but Only Explanation.
proving that Jesus Christ existed and there was an empty tomb factually follows that He rose from the dead.
myth theory -
Different points of views, no contradiction from The Apostles means events happened. miracles are authentic as they are written in witness and have evidence of addition, exaggeration, or lies.
Josephus proves Jesus Christ was crucified, no matter what you say this man was a Jew, had no biased or presupposition.
Nazareth Inscription proves empty tomb.
Women found the tomb empty, this irrefutable, criteria of embarrassment
Matthew 28:11-18 proves without a doubt there was an empty tomb, Matthew refutes the Jews, no matter what you say or what you think he REFUTES what the Jews were saying, which proves, the Jews were claiming they stole the tomb. a common presupposition and excuse.
My fellow Christians told the truth of The Resurrection and the Jews spread the stolen tomb myth, either way EMPTY TOMB, of who? Jesus Christ, why was there a tomb? He was crucified, why? because the Jews thought He committed blasphemy why was there an empty tomb? we will get to that next. Apostles died for their beliefs and appearances are genuine(will get to it next)
"myth theory" is long gone and dead. if you EVER claim myth then you are a presuppositional delusional hypocritical, the words could go on and on.
myth "theory" is now an impossible myth.
conspiracy theory - 1, No one could have stolen the tomb as it was blocked by roman guards.
2, Apostles had nothing to gain, criteria of embarrassment, they were shamed and were against all evil, sin.
3, They died for their beliefs, 11 of the 12 Apostles died for their beliefs, no one dies for a known lie, they really believed in The Resurrection added that with the facts of the appearances.
4, Appearances to Women, proves Apostles were telling the truth
5, James, the brother of Jesus Christ in The Gospels is a skeptic, outside of it he's a believer(Letters, Church, and Josephus) Jesus had to have appeared to him.
6, Paul, a prosecutor of Christians becomes a Christian himself and becomes a leading preacher of Christianity going through all kinds of suffering and ultimately death for his beliefs.
7, Apostles believed in The Resurrection despite every predispostion to the contrary, no one believed The Messiah was going to die, be God, or much less Resurrect from the dead. no one believed in The Resurrection until the end of world, the general Resurrection.
Apostles believed The Resurrection happened, myth and conspiracy theories are now myths, if you want to argue you can only use your last 3 "naturalistic" myths when arguing with me because the myth and conspiracy theories are dead myths now, using them or believing them exposes you as a hypocrite as those are now Impossible Explanations.
Now we have a few facts,
Jesus Christ was crucified
There was an Empty Tomb
Jesus Christ appeared alive after His death to several people
Apostles really believed in The Resurrection
last 3 which are easily refutatable.
"twin brother/lookalike" theory - Apostles knew Jesus, saw Him perform more miracles, Empty Tomb and no one could have stolen the tomb, had same wounds, no known twin brother as James, Jesus half brother, would take that into consideration. and theory is a stretch.
"twin brother/lookalike" theory is a myth
swoon theory - Apostles saw Jesus Christ die, He was anointed, stabbed in chest pouring blood and water confirming death, romans made sure you die when crucified, even if survived would have been impossible to escape tomb, would've died later, would not convince apostles, and Jesus Christ Ascended.
swoon theory is now a myth
last theory that if I disprove I prove The Resurrection happened.
hallucination theory - Apostles were in their right minds, died for their beliefs, hallucinations are fast and quick, Thomas for example put his hand in Jesus side, you don't have multiple hallucinations about the same thing, and finally multiple people do not hallucinate about the same thing.
EVERY Single "naturalistic" "theory" has been made a myth of.
There is one Irrefutable Explanation, not the best but The Only Explanation is that Jesus Christ died on the cross and Resurrected from the dead, therefore proving everything in The Bible as a fact.
Jesus Christ Resurrected from the dead.
add that with The Shroud which has no evidence of forgery, not a painting, cannot be reproduced with any type of technology, and caused by a burst of light from the dead body causing an image like a photography. and recently - Carbon Testing has been refuted, http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2013/03/28/shroud-of-turin-real-jesus_n_2971850.html
God's existence and failure of other religions making Christianity the only possibility, Physical evidence in The Shroud and Only Explanation being The Resurrection, it is indeniable, God Exists, Jesus Christ is Lord, Jesus Christ is the 2nd person of God, and that God is YHWH who is The Trinity of The Father, The Son, and The Holy Spirit.
