Ugh, he was leading you guys all over the place.

It seems like the main point of the entire thing was that he accepts an eyewitness account of a supernatural event as evidence for that event being supernatural.
We all know that extraordinary claims require extraordinary evidence, but where exactly would we find such evidence, how can we logically falsify these claims?
Personally I would apply Ockham's razor, there has to be a simple natural explanation - supernatural explanations only create more questions and increase the chance of error.

He keeps talking about unique events, and supernatural events, but the thing is there is NOTHING that happens in our world that is beyond natural. Nothing. If somebody could somehow walk across water, one could PROVE that by using science, and there is nothing unique about it as with the resurrection case, he admits to believing in other religions resurrection myths as well. SO apparently it's not so unique that they can't be duplicated. Thus, if such an event happened we could test it.

Something, some form of physical evidence would be left to mark such a place.

Exactly, seemingly Supernatural events can very easily be supported by scientific theories we may not have come across, thus becoming very natural.

If course, the resurrection is not one of them, it's just ridiculous.

Oh yeah, silly me. Thanks.
