← Chris Hallquist debunks the resurrection

Dave Porter's Avatar Jump to comment 11 by Dave Porter

A person waking up from a coma would seem like a resurrection to people that didn't understand what was going on. Both stories of Jesus and Lazarus deal with such cases. When Interstate 35 was built by my parents farm they had to move an old cemetery. When the coffins were inspected for re-burial there were 7 that had scratch marks on the inside of the coffin lids. The coffins were from the late 1880's, when a cholera epidemic went through the area. Asian Cholera induces a coma-like state, as does many severe traumas to the body and brain.

Logic can easily debunk all the supposed "miracles" the ficticious "Jesus" performed.
