We don't often see articles by academics providing evidence against the historicity of the bible stories but here's a decent enough one.

What are the arguments to counter this analysis.

Why I Don’t Buy the Resurrection Story (6th ed., 2006)

Richard Carrier

Today I am going to tell you why I don’t buy the resurrection story. By that I mean the tales in the Gospels, of Jesus physically rising again from the grave. As a professional historian, I do not believe we have anywhere near sufficient evidence or reason to believe this, and I’ve been asked by the Yale College Humanists and Secularists to explain why. If any of you want to know more about this than what few points I can cover in thirty minutes, I have several writings on this and other subjects on the Secular Web. But here I will cover the most important reasons why I don’t buy the resurrection story.

Link?
The article should probably be a link to Why I Don’t Buy the Resurrection Story – Internet Infidels, or wherever it came from originally. Do you want this in Links and Information, or for it to be its own thread in Faith and Belief? If you want it to be its own thread it needs an intro.

Re: Link?
I can easily make it harder for people to access and refer to if that's the objection, but that seems rather silly; it's a publicly available document that I have referenced.

But hey-ho, I'll hack it into oblivion and give it an introduction.

Re: Link?
There's a copyright notice clear as day at the bottom. When my webhosting company receives a copyright complaint they take down the offending webpage first and investigate later.

I'll put this in Faith and Belief.
