Why Would Telling Me You Have Seen Jesus With Your Own Eyes Convice Me?The most commen argument I hear as an athiest is that If a person has seen jesus with their own eyes that makes it all fact. Do they think i can not come up with a more likely and more logical explaination for having seen jesus?
One possible explaination would be delusion. Alot of these stories involve very young children, people in severe poverty, drugs and all sorts of other things that would make the story less reliable.
Then there are the occaisions when there is clearly money to be made from convincing me, or any one else, that jesus can be seen.
Then of course there is science. I rely on facts and evidence to form my understanding of the universe we live in.
I just dont understand why some one would think telling me they have seen jesus or listing obscure predictions that it could be argued have come true would be counted as evidence of the existance of god.
