    I can.

    No. You can reanimate a corpse by attaching robot limbs to it and having it move around. It would be a reanimated corpse and a zombie but it would not be resurrected (and a resurrected corpse is an oxymoron anyway, once you are resurrected you are not a corpse, you are a living being).

    The difference is like the difference between accusing you of having sex with children and accusing you of having sex with your wife.
    "As for my people, children are their oppressors, and women rule over them. O my people, they which lead thee cause thee to err, and destroy the way of thy paths." Isaiah 3:12

    There is no such thing as innocence, only degrees of guilt.

    Biblical reference, please? If you're going to argue scripture, you really need to know what the scripture actually says.

    Likening the resurrection body to zombification is misinformed at best and dishonest at worst.

    Given his alleged upbringing, the first option is right out.

    Every time I see this thread I can't help but sing the title in my head to the tune of "Do you believe in magic."

    Matthew 27:53 "They came out of their tombs and entered into the holy city, and appeared to many." As far as the 500 witnesses is concerned, It's been a while, I confused that with Pauls assertion that 500 people witnessed the resurrected Jesus, which btw is, in my opinion, another screwball claim that doesn't appear in any of the gospels.

    Yes, but we are not talking robotic limbs.


    (and a resurrected corpse is an oxymoron anyway, once you are resurrected you are not a corpse, you are a living being).
    Yes, once resurrected you would no longer be a corpse, you'd be a resurrected corpse, aka a living being.
