With Jesus raising Lazarus from the dead, Jesus rasing from the dead and later travelling on a cloud to heaven, and "saints" rasied from their graves and wandering around Jerusalem. Perhaps this was an all too common event, zombies were so common place, that historians at the time did not think it was worthy of writing down :D

The major parts are the parts we have evidence that demonstrates history beyond reasonable doubt. The Bible contradicts some major portions of history, the parts we can confirm.
Good Morning!
The Bible, New Revised Standard, may be the best, is contradictory. Handed down in oral tradition for a century or more?
Historical research is frustrating, so much in lost.

Life may be frustrating for secularists in the US. The country is religious and prayer in school may be in place in rural areas.

Are most atheists actually agnostics?
How can one know that God does not exist?

Nothing defines atheists better than their willingness to say irrational things in defense of their disbelief.

I think you'll find theists say some pretty irrational things here.

Websters? Merriam? OED? Collins? No- none of them say that.

Maybe you looked up "priest kiddyfiddlers" by accident.

Forums supporting atheism are revealing to say the least. They demonstrate with every sniggering bigoted post how atheists suffer from their own bad PR. LOL!

Any particular claim can be verified, if there is evidence then the evidence can be tested, if there is no evidence it is safe, and sane, to assume it is nothing but mythology.

Their numbers would skyrocket amongst young goth kids if they would embrace their zombie vampire side. It seems like a good marketing strategy.

No way, goth is about "not conforming" and an organized religion is the ultimate in conformity. Now way they'd recruit true goths.

Since there is no evidence god exists, why even consider the possibility that he does?

Nothing is "self evident," as I pointed out to you. That is just a cop-out, an excuse, a way to tell anyone who disagrees with you, in spite of them having all the actual evidence supporting their assertions, that they are wrong, and only idiots, I mean die hard, total buffoons, think that can actually serve as evidence for anything.
Imagine if a physicist said that quantum theory is self evident. Or if electricity was just called "self evident?" We'd never have computers.
Exactly. They cannot prove their claims so they would rather just cite themselves as proof of those claims.
