I do not seek to understand that I may believe, but I believe in order to understand. For this also I believe, –that unless I believed, I should not understand.-- St. Anselm of Canterbury (1033-1109)

That's a great video.

One thing Lewis said early on before his conversion about how there was no "proof" for any religion is partially wrong.

There is a level of proof for Christ's historic existence and there is no decent explanation for the eyewitnesses to be willing to be murdered proclaiming a bodily resurrected Christ except it's true.

Especially in the culture of their day, the pagans hated the corporeal body anyway, why would a legitimate God want a body forever and the Jews hated the idea of their Messiah being murdered as a weakling by pagans, that was shameful to them.
