Indeed, how

does an atheist explain the empty tomb?

But if His enemies had possession of His body or knew its location, they would have rolled it down Jerusalem’s main street as soon as the disciples began telling people Jesus was alive.

On a related matter, it seems to me that there is a big push all of a sudden to engage in a sort of neo-apologetics. To show that according to science (Meyer) and history (this) it is reasonable to be believing.

Now “apologetics” is often a term spat out with disdain and intellectual superciliousness, but I think that shows a very shallow (or at least incomplete) understanding.

Modern Apologetics is NOT about rationally proving the existence of God or arguing about how many angels can dance on the head of a pin. Modern Apologetics is much more about showing that reason does not preclude belief, and that there are HUGE logical gaps in purely Materialist or Atheistic explanations.
