Can christianity be proved by objective evidence?
I am in an argument with my brother and sister, both fundies. At present there are only 2 of them going but there are substantial reinforcements at their disposal. I contend that christianity cannot be proved by objective evidence but brother David says it can and calls on thing like the supposed eye witness accounts in the NT as part of his proof. To me the NT is a loaded document, written for a specific purpose, not as an historical account but as a religious text. Applying the normal historical method to a supernatural text is unacceptable to me.
As far as I can tell there is no other objective evidence for christianity. The other arguments like the cosmological argument and discussions about abiogenesis are unprovable and need not depend on the christian god as prime mover. The moral argument is also subjective.
What do any brain boxes out there think? Is there objective proof of christian beliefs or is the entire doctrine contrived, reliant on the spiritual and ultimately subjective?
