Dear Steven

This is not science. Science is empirical, relies on experiment.
It would not stand up in any court of law.
This statement should not appear under the heading Rational Thought.
It is called: Belief 
It is no different form the beliefs of the Azande witchdoctors or the Buddhists or the Hindus.
It may of course be correct, and so may they, I cant say, but it is not rational and it is not science.  
I now see where you come from, this and your creationism. 
Thank you. I will probably not bother to respond to anything you say from now on.

Incidentally, Im not at all sure how this thread is on a RADSAFE discussion group, entertaining as it may be.

Good luck

         The literal, physical, bodily resurrection of Jesus Christ 
from the grave is one of the best established facts of history.  I'm 
not going to debate it because there is nothing to debate.  It happened.
