Bayesian evaluation for the likelihood of Christ's resurrection (edit 13)

I'm continuing to work on editing Bayesian evaluation for the likelihood of Christ's resurrection. Things are edited down to the section heading "One in a million events happen every month". I'll still need to rearrange the material here a little bit, along with the table of contents, after writing in the new materials and smoothing out […]

Bayesian evaluation for the likelihood of Christ's resurrection (edit 12)

I'm continuing to work on editing Bayesian evaluation for the likelihood of Christ's resurrection. Things are edited down to the section heading "More examples establishing the Bayes factor of a human testimony." There's also some rearrangement of the materials. I'm taking additional care around here because the dependence question is being addressed here. You may next […]

Bayesian evaluation for the likelihood of Christ's resurrection (edit 11)

I'm continuing to work on editing Bayesian evaluation for the likelihood of Christ's resurrection. Things are edited down to the beginning of chapter 2. You may next want to read: "Simon, son of John, do you love me?" 15 puzzle: a tile sliding game Another post, from the table of contents

Bayesian evaluation for the likelihood of Christ's resurrection (edit 10)

I'm continuing to work on editing Bayesian evaluation for the likelihood of Christ's resurrection. This week, I switched around the order between considering James's and Paul's testimony, by placing Paul's stronger testimony first. That way, there's no doubt that this testimony carries the odds over to the side of being probable. Things are still edited down […]

Bayesian evaluation for the likelihood of Christ's resurrection (edit 9)

I'm continuing to work on editing Bayesian evaluation for the likelihood of Christ's resurrection. This week, I edited down to the section starting "Conclusion: there is in fact far more than enough evidence to overcome the prior. (part 4)" You may next want to read: Christians, read your Bibles 15 puzzle: a tile sliding game Another […]

Bayesian evaluation for the likelihood of Christ's resurrection (edit 8)

I'm continuing to work on editing Bayesian evaluation for the likelihood of Christ's resurrection. This week, I edited down to the section starting "The evidence for a resurrection - is it enough? (part 4)" You may next want to read: Finding pi in a square grid: or, why you can have square brownies for pi day […]

Bayesian evaluation for the likelihood of Christ's resurrection (edit 7)

I'm continuing to work on editing Bayesian evaluation for the likelihood of Christ's resurrection. This week, I made some "style guide" type changes to the body of the text: "Bayes' theorem", "Bayes' rule", and "Bayes factor". Incidentally, I prefer "Jesus's" to "Jesus'" in indicating the possessive case for Jesus, because I think it agrees better with […]

Bayesian evaluation for the likelihood of Christ's resurrection (edit 6)

I'm continuing to work on editing Bayesian evaluation for the likelihood of Christ's resurrection. This week, I continued editing, down to the beginning of "Double checking the Bayes' factor: Lottery winner" section, smoothing over the transitions from switching parts 1 and 2 around. You may next want to read: How is "light" used in the Bible, […]

Bayesian evaluation for the likelihood of Christ's resurrection (edit 5)

I'm continuing to work on editing Bayesian evaluation for the likelihood of Christ's resurrection. This week, I edited the first part of the post - in particular, I made the decision to never square the initial prior probability. The argument is plenty strong as it is, and I do eventually end up using the original un-squared […]

Bayesian evaluation for the likelihood of Christ's resurrection (edit 4)

I'm continuing to work on editing Bayesian evaluation for the likelihood of Christ's resurrection. This week, I updated the table of contents with the latest changes. You may next want to read: The Gospel: the central message of Christianity On martyrdom - the value of a human life (part 3) Another post, from the table of […]
