As for knowing whether [Jesus] rose, that’s not a question for science…If competent, trustworthy observers reliably observed Jesus to be dead one day, and if they (or other competent, trustworthy observers) reliably saw him alive days later, that gives us good reason to believe He rose from the dead. That’s all it takes. No lab tests. No video, even…Let’s set aside any thoughtless idea that science says the resurrection couldn’t have happened. That’s just a bad case of someone forgetting what science is good at — and what it isn’t.—Tom Gilson (from, Does Science Prove the Resurrection Was Impossible?)
