Proof God God raised Jesus Christ from the dead - based on sheer logic and mathematics, not faith
It is 97 per cent certain that God raised Jesus Christ from the dead - based on sheer logic and mathematics, not faith - according to Oxford professor Richard Swinburne.



"New Testament scholars say the only evidence is witnesses in the four gospels. That´s only 5 per cent of the evidence," Professor Swinburne, one of the world´s leading philosophers of religion, said last night.

"We can´t judge the question of the resurrection unless we ask first whether there´s reason to suppose there is a God, second if we have reason to suppose he would become incarnate and third, if he did, whether he would live the sort of life Jesus did."

Professor Swinburne, in Melbourne to give several seminars and a public lecture at the Australian Catholic University last night, said the mathematics showed a probability of 97 per cent.

This conclusion was reached after a complex series of calculations. In simplified terms, it began with a single proposition: the probability was one in two that God exists.

Next, if God exists, the probability was one in two that he became incarnate. Further, there was a one in 10 probability that the gospels would report the life and resurrection of Jesus in the form they do.

Finally, the clincher: the probability that we would have all this evidence if it wasn´t true was one in 1000.

He argued that any evidence for the existence of God was an argument for the resurrection, and any evidence against the existence of God was an argument against the resurrection.

"Does he have reason to become incarnate? Yes, to make atonement, identify with our suffering and to teach us things, " Professor Swinburne said.

Even Jesus´ life is not enough proof, he said. God´s signature was needed, which the resurrection was, showing his approval of Jesus´ teaching.

The mathematical equations appear in the professor´s book, The Resurrection of God Incarnate (OUP, 2003).

The proof is in the details. If a person could create as did jesus many documented times to count, why would this being let a bunch of libs crucify him? If the truth be known this was the most selfless act a superior being could do. If you ,anyone out there could raise the dead,heal the sick, make water to wine ,would you if not the true savior of all man kind and the son of our creator let these primates nail your dumbass to a crosss, hell no. To me this is a no brainer,
I get banned if I just get a little out there and some of you get away with liable on a daily basis.

Someone can always make the argument that it was for a learning process, however.

Jesus had to die in order to atone for "our sins."

Yours and mine.

At the same time, he had to atone for Adam´s sin.

Adam´s and Eve´s sins.

Sacrifice was big mojo back in those days. Jesus´ own parents had to kill birds when Jesus was born. It was like Voodoo or Santeria, with animal sacrifice.

"And to offer a sacrifice according to that which is said in the law of the Lord, A pair of turtledoves, or two young pigeons."

Anyway, the BIG SACRIFICE was Jesus.

The lamb of God.

I´m not sure I understand why Jesus had to die. But the Book says he did.

People who die young make a big impression on pop culture. Kurt Cobain, Jim Morrison, and so on. We remember them because they died before they petered out.

If Jesus had lived to 80, then been crucified, it wouldn´t make a big impression on us.
