BeliefMap is an advanced debate simulator for exploring these questions and all the sub-questions that affect their believability. Start by clicking one of the claims in the menu on the left. It will procedurally branch out academic evidences for it and counter-evidences. These can in turn be clicked on, allowing users to quickly drill down into complex debates. Doing so makes for a fun interactive “choose you own path” debate between green (the affirmative Christian view) and red (the objector's). More detailed information for each conversation step loads on the right. There are over 1,000 forking back-and-forth responses to explore, and the loaded information includes thousands of academic quotes. And the catalogue is growing.
• Jeff Lowder (Philosopher, debater, co-founder of infidels.org): “I remember thinking to myself that if I took the time to investigate the resurrection, I could make anyone who believed it look like a fool. Or so I thought. …I was about to discard [it as] ‘another illogical religious belief,’ …[yet] I found extremely difficult to deal with as a critic.” [The Historicity of Jesus' Resurrection]
