     - if rising from the dead is not logically possible, then wouldn't that mean the resurrection  Soylent Brice   Oct-06-09 02:37 PM   #5 
     - Correct. But the Resurrection is not a demonstration of logic but of power over death.  rug   Oct-06-09 06:25 PM   #6 
        - wouldn't that dictate that the idea of a god itself be illogical?  Soylent Brice   Oct-06-09 08:12 PM   #7 
           - Logic is a human tool. i doubt a truly divine being is limited to such linear reasoning.  rug   Oct-06-09 08:23 PM   #8

     - "Rising from the dead is not logically possible." No. this is not a logical  Joe Chi Minh   Oct-08-09 06:34 PM   #14 
        - This is a type of knowledge beyond logic.  rug   Oct-08-09 08:58 PM   #15 
           - Yes. Beyond the powers of the analytical intelligence.  Joe Chi Minh   Oct-09-09 01:49 PM   #17
