The ‘Lack of Evidence’

Show Summary Details

Preview

This chapter examines the criticism concerning the lack of evidence on the correctness of the traditional Christological views. It explains that even if the traditional views might conceivably be true, there would be no way of telling that they were. This is because the alleged evidence for the correctness of these views is historically vulnerable. In addition, traditional Christianity is inextricably tied up with belief in certain historical facts or alleged facts.
