Tonight, I am giving a talk that will be jointly hosted for two different skeptical organisations here and here at 8pm UK time. My talk will be a tough one to squeeze into the allotted time, so I will be rattling through it at a rate of knots, no doubt. It will set out to show that the probability of the Christian account being true is very low and the quality of evidence is very poor. The discerning evaluator of beliefs will have much more epistemic warrant in believing (almost any) naturalistic accounts of the Resurrection than the Christian one.
I am dipping my foot back into giving talks this way. My MS has meant that I am not quite as sharp as I used to be – I certainly use to relish Q&As in having debates and arguments with people as my brain used to be razor-sharp and quick in live responding. Nowadays, if I can do things in my own time and with a really narrow remit (like writing blog posts) that don’t require cognitive load and multitasking, my brain can just about cope. So it will be interesting.
Anyways, pop along, virtually speaking, if you have nothing better to do.
