This is a copy of my post on Facebook, which I put up on Easter. It is here as a fixed-link reference for my friends who don't frequent Facebook.
The $10,000 offer is currently only open to my personal friends. But I do want all of my readers to know what's going on with my series on the resurrection, and I expect that the offer will open up to many more people in the future.
1. Christ is risen.
2. For the past two years, I've been working on an empirical, historical, mathematical, and statistical proof of this fact.
3. I have $10,000 for any of my friends who can convince me of any flaws in my work which would nullify its central thesis.
A few things to note about point 3:
This is not a bet or a challenge. I'm thinking of the $10,000 more as a payment for a service. There is no money to be gained on my end, and I expect a discussion, not an argument.
This is why this offer is only open to my friends, and not to everyone. It's also why you actually have to convince me.
Don't worry about what it would take to convince me. A quick read of my work would show you that it's based entirely on empirical observations and mathematical reasoning. If you want to convince me, those are your tools.
Don't worry about taking my money. I would be genuinely grateful to anyone who gave my work a good read, and finding a genuine, fatal flaw, if one exists, would easily be worth $10,000 to me. In fact, in the future I will only continue to make that offer to a widening circle of people, until I eventually throw it at publishing and popularizing my work. So finding any errors now would be a huge service to me.
Here's the link.
So, happy Easter to you all! And if anyone wants to just meet and talk about this work, I'll buy you lunch!
