a philosophy of religion blog
Thanks very much for your help, AIGBusted. I have now added a booklist in the sidebar.Best,EA
Glad I could help.By the way, I'm writing a rebuttal to Timothy and Lydia McGrew's Bayesian defense of the resurrection. If you are familiar with Bayes' Theorem, I could really use some help in making sure I have my numbers straight.I've gathered together the facts I need, so I just need to make sure I'm not confused on which values to plug in where. I *think* I have it right, but I'd like to make sure.Ryan
I'm not the best person to ask about the finer points of Bayesian reasoning, but perhaps (ahem) some readers of this blog could offer their assistance.
Btw: My own two cents on the McGrew's argument and those of their ilk: even if we grant arguendo that the evidence they discuss raises the probability of Christian theism above 1/2, the evidence for Jesus as a failed apocalyptic prophet (which is the mainstream view) deflates that probability right back down to at least 1/2 (or closer to zero, or so I would argue).
