Christian Tractatus

(Text as at 12/08/2007 10:17:46)

As we saw in a previous section, the wickedness and folly of man (as the Bible itself witnesses) is such, and the negative evidence of common experience so great, that it is difficult to imagine testimony sufficient to establish any miracle beyond reasonable doubt.

  1. This is especially so in the case of seemingly irrelevant miracles (eg. some of those of Elijah & Elisha, such as the floating axe-head of 2 Kings 6:1-7).
  2. Even in the case of miracles of key theological importance, such as the resurrection of Jesus, the direct evidence is scanty, with divergent accounts proving difficult to reconcile.
