Did Jesus, you know, bounce back?

Did Jesus, you know, bounce back?

Or did he live with his wife and kids on the Riviera and die at a ripe old age?

A one-minute woman-on-the-street video.

And that's the way the Ball bounces.

Notice the implicit belief in a resurrection in the word "bounces". I'm out of the closet -- I'm a believer, baby!

"Belief" does not equal "truth", and you recognize that for any superstition but your own. What EVIDENCE do you have that this collection of self-contradictory fairy tales is even remotely close to being true?

SDC. S-D-C. Where have I heard that name before?

SDC (Same Dumb Comment) still extolling his firm belief in his own infallibility.

Is there any reason I should exempt your superstition from the same sort of critical thought that I direct at OTHER superstitions, Richard and Joe?

Funny, SDC, that you are so much wiser than all those historical guys who believed in "superstition". You probably haven't heard of them. Figures.

Well, Dollops, I honestly don't see any reason to believe second-hand ghost stories, whether they're from your superstition, or from any other. Can you give me any sort of a logical reason that you believe them?

SDC -- If you were able to frame an honest question, we would be happy to give you an honest answer.

What is "dishonest" about my questions, Richard? Your superstition makes claims that are no different from the claims of thousands of other superstitions, yet, instead of disbelieving them ALL (like I do), you choose to pick one to believe, without any evidence. WHY?

When you ask about someone's "superstition" you are "begging the question". Logical fallacy. But you would know that, O great logical one! Ask an honestly worded question and you will receive an honest answer.

Until you lay out evidence and a reasoned argument for believing your claims, your superstition IS a superstition, no different than the superstition of a jungle tribe that believes that sacrificing goats and chickens to a volcano will prevent that volcano from erupting. I'm no more about to believe your "resurrection" fairy tale without evidence to back it up than i am to believe the muslims' fairy tale of "mohammed" riding a winged horse over jerusalem and splitting the moon. Without evidence to back them up, those claims are EXACTLY identical, so (for the third time now) whaere's the evidence for believing these claims above other similar claims?
