WHERE WE ARE AT Peter Kreeft raises seven objections against The Conspiracy Theory (hereafter: TCT) in an attempt to disprove that theory, as part of an elimination-of-alternatives argument for the resurrection of Jesus.  Kreeft thinks that by disproving four skeptical theories, he can show that the Christian theory is true, that Jesus actually rose from the dead. In previous posts (Part #4, Part #5, Part #6, and Part #7), I argued that Kreeft’s Objection #1 against TCT was a miserable FAILURE. In Part… Read more

Dr. Sean George claims that God raised him from the dead. I have prepared a PowerPoint presentation called “The Resurrection of Sean George” which contains lots of relevant information and skeptical points about Dr. Sean George’s miracle claim.  Here at The Secular Outpost,  I plan to present my main objections to his miracle claim. The following is a summary of Dr. Sean George’s alleged resurrection:   One of my primary objections to this miracle claim is that there are millions… Read more

Peter Kreeft raises seven objections against The Conspiracy Theory (hereafter: TCT).  In previous posts (post #4, post #5, post #6, and post #7) I have argued that his Objection #1 was a miserable FAILURE. Here is Kreeft’s very brief Objection #2 against TCT: If they made up the story, they were the most creative, clever, intelligent fantasists in history, far surpassing Shakespeare, or Dante, or Tolkien. Fisherman’s “fish stories” are never that elaborate, that convincing, that life-changing, and that enduring. This… Read more

According to Peter Kreeft, there are only five possible theories about the alleged resurrection of Jesus. The Conspiracy Theory (hereafter: TCT) is one of those five theories. Kreeft raises seven objections against  TCT. We are currently considering Objection #1.  Kreeft lays out this objection by quoting Blaise Pascal: ..imagine these twelve men [the twelve apostles] meeting after Jesus’ death and conspiring to say that he has risen from the dead. This means attacking all the powers that be. The human heart… Read more

According to Peter Kreeft, there are only five possible theories about the alleged resurrection of Jesus:     The Conspiracy Theory (hereafter: TCT) is one of those five theories. Kreeft raises seven objections against TCT.  Objection #1 FAILS, because it makes various historical assumptions about the twelve apostles without providing any historical evidence for those assumptions.   OUR IGNORANCE ABOUT THE TWELVE In Part 5 of this series,  I presented a number of points from A Marginal Jew, Volume III,… Read more

There are five different possible theories about the alleged resurrection of Jesus, according to Peter Kreeft:     The Conspiracy Theory is one of the skeptical theories about the resurrection.  See Part 3 of this series for my clarification of the content of TCT.   THE ABSENCE OF HISTORICAL EVIDENCE In Part 4 of this series I replied to Objection #1 of Peter Kreeft’s seven objections against The Conspiracy Theory (hereafter: TCT). In today’s post, I will provide evidence to support… Read more
