Wanted: things people have claimed about the majority of Biblical scholars

Since William Lane Craig makes such a big deal about most scholars supposedly agreeing with him about everything important, it would be nice to accumulate examples of scholars claiming the majority is against Craig on various issues.

It doesn’t matter if there’s any evidence backing up the claim about what the majority says, since Craig isn’t terribly careful about that himself. The point is just to be able to say, “okay, you’ve got one guy saying one thing, but here’s another guy saying otherwise.”

For example, I think John Dominic Crossan actually claimed, somewhere, that the empty tomb (or perhaps the burial traditions) is rejected by most scholars. Can anyone find the source for that? I think it may have been in the Craig-Crossan debate book, but I’m not sure. Anyone have access to a copy of that book?
