I understand your point Jon, but it isn't quite as strong as you'd like. I recall an event that was filmed, investigated literally by millions and millions of hours of human labor, had movies made about it, many books written about it, and yet many people still can't agree what really happened. That's right, the shooting of JFK. Now, if we can't come to any consensus on something that recent and highly witnessed, how could we possibly do so about something that happened 2000 years ago? You could say the same thing about most events in history. We have books now claiming that FDR knew in advance that the Japanese were going to bomb Pearl Harbor, and evidence that supposedly cooborates that claim. Ridicule Christians if you must, but bear in mind that the vast majority of things you believe to be true, outside of personal knowledge, are taken on "faith." That is, faith that the "reporter" is accurate and honest.
