    Resurrection has nothing to do with science. We can not do experiment on it.
    Do you like to be a sample to see if it is scientifically possible?

    Is being alive or dead a natural phenomenon? I think so. That said, we have no scientific evidence to work from (in relation to this particular reported case) so there's very little to say.

    It depends on what you mean by science but something not being scientific does not nessacarily mean untrue. It need not be empirical to be well substantiated evidencially. We have such an exalted veneration for natural science that we forget the scope I'd deliberately limited to the direct observation of specific phenomenon. For an historical event the criteria for evidence isn't scientific testing, that's absurd. Occasionally you might get carbon 14 tests or something but history invariably is preserved by historic narrative.

    That is perhaps the core Christian belief.

    Speaking as a "scientific type" myself, not at all.

    It's an interesting subject and there is no reason that it can't be looked at from a 'scientific' standpoint.

    The main premise is that all of these 'miracles' are caused by "faith/belief" itself and have to do with the fundamental nature of reality in regards to the impact that the observer's perception has on it.

    Either that, or these miracles were caused by God.

    Consider this:

    The universe started out at: mass/energy = zero.

    Then the level of mass/energy was raised to what it is today by a series of miracles performed over a period of six days.

    This thread, to this point, has had nothing to do with the pursuit of knowledge.

    No it's not. There are other options. It was allegorical for example.

    No, there is only one resurrection of Jesus, his real resurrection.

    That doesn't support the argument that it was "fake" otherwise.

    Your right, so why ask Literal Resurrection? as there is just one real resurrection.

    Only if you believe a Literal Resurrection. As I said earlier, it could be an allegorical story.

    It maybe similar in the sense that a new body can be re-created from the preexisting DNA of an old body, similar to Eve being formed from Adam.

    If God used the DNA from the dead body of Jesus to re-create the new living body of Jesus, then the resurrection would be similar to cloning in some way.

    No great discovery was ever made without a bold guess.
    That's an Isaac Newton quote.

    The guess in this instance is that resurrection is an advanced form of cloning.

    Wow. Did someone in a Christian forum actually agree with me?

    I'm shocked!

    Hey speaking of being shocked I read that's how you bring the DNA to life once its inside the egg, by passing an electric current through it...

    Jesus could have been a physically cloned copy of who he was and then imparted with the same mind he had.

    Remember, the body is formed first, and then the mind is imparted:

    "The LORD God formed the man from the dust of the ground [body] and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life [mind], and the man became a living being [soul]." - (Gen 2:7).
