Here are a few things looming on the horizon like the discrete rumbling of an impending storm;

1. Special significance will be assigned to specific circumstances surrounded the myth you believe in - whereas the significance of equally specific circumstances in other resurrection myths will be downplayed.

2. It will be pointed out that while Jesus was a man, he wasn't just a man. He was also a god. Your response to that remains to be seen.

3. The construction of a "Gotcha" argument - where terms are not defined, equivalences will be perpetrated and leap-frogging will commence, and the person presenting the "argument" will refuse to move on to another premise unless the previous premise has been accepted.


Thenexttodie, just present your argument. If you need another person to interact with or to trick during your argument - then it is a lesser argument.


Ok, I'll admit that part of me was hoping to prove a certain suspicion that I have...

Except that the argument doesn't rest on the minor differences between different depictions of dying and rising saviour gods.

Yes but I am a Christian, and I can see no reason why only the Hebrews could have had foreknowledge of the coming Christ. So I always took it it for granted when Christ-mythists said "Here is an other story about a guy who was like Jesus, that dates back to 800BC".
