Things on which there is overwhelming scientific consensus

  1. God did not create the world in six days.
  2. Women in the first century AD could not conceive children without sexual intercourse.
  3. People, once dead, do not come back to life.
  4. There is no personal-yet-infinite (i.e. Triune) God.

What makes us think that granting #1, and only #1, will make Christianity more palatable to “reasonable” people? Will #s 2-4 suddenly no longer be problematic?



  1. So far as I’m aware, there’s no consensus (or, really, even scientific opinion) on #4. The existence of God isn’t a matter that can be investigated scientifically.
