Ontological Suicide

"In the New Testament field, some critics have made a great song and dance about the fact that the details of Jesus' life, or the fact of his resurrection, cannot be proved 'scientifically'; philosophical rigour should compel them to admit that the same problem pertains to the vast range of ordinary human knowledge, including the implicit claim that knowledge requires empirical verification."

--N. T. Wright, The New Testament and the People of God, page 34.

Always enjoyable to watch an opponent fall on his own sword.
