LINK: A Bayesian Analysis of the Cumulative Effects of Independent Eyewitness Testimony for the Resurrection of Jesus Christ

I just discovered this essay by John DePoe which defends a Bayesian technique to measure the cumulative effect of independent eyewitness testimony for the Resurrection. Check it out:

I think this article could be of interest to anyone interested in Bayesian approaches to evidence for or against God’s existence, not just people interested in Christian apologetics, since the approach in this article is (might be?) applied outside of Christian apologetics. Also, the author addresses popular strategies used by naturalists in responding to all miracle claims (not just the Resurrection).
