Hitchens’s Razor vs Bayes’s Theorem

Hitchens’s Razor vs Bayes’s Theorem February 5, 2021

John W. Loftus has just endorsed my forthcoming book on the Resurrection in the following manner:

Hitchens’s Razor, not Bayes’s Theorem, is the proper tool to use against the “absolute baselessness” of the resurrection belief (per David F. Strauss, as quoted in this book). There’s no objective evidence for it. The testimonial evidence is abysmally poor. We should therefore dismiss this superstitious belief for what it is (per Hitchens). However, if you want to take such a belief seriously, read this thoroughly documented terminal case against the resurrection based on the latest research! This is the only book you’ll need. Pearce is your expert guide on all the essential issues.

–John W. Loftus, author of Unapologetic: Why Philosophy of Religion Must End, and editor of The Case against Miracles.
