I know I may seem unfair b/c of this, but I only like to watch debates where the theists lose.

Did the theist lose? And how do you know? or not know?

Your question really doesn't make sense Michael. Honestly, have you ever seen or heard a debate where a theist won? I have yet to hear a theist who can prove or defend the bronze-age notions of God espoused in their religious texts.

William Lane Craig beats the crap out of every non-Christian that he debates.

Apparently Michael you have not heard the Ehrman Craig debate. Ehrman makes Craig look silly. I will post it up for you.

If Peter (and others) still didn't have enough belief and were still skeptical of Jesus being divine after his crucifixion then OBVIOUSLY Jesus's miracles weren't all that convincing. Don't you think that if you lived at that time and saw someone walk on water, turn wine into water and feed thousands of people with only a few loaves of bread that there would be absolutely NO DOUBT in your mind after you saw that happen in front of your very eyes. Magic must have been harder to perform back then without all the modern technology that modern Magicians (like Criss Angel, David Copperfield, etc.) have to work with. Don't you think that if Jesus actually was the son of god, he would have easily convinced anyone. It's hard to believe that Jesus was actually divine if he couldn't even convince people when he was alive.

I really like the question that the audience member asked. It was groundbreaking.

The fact you can believe the 5 facts but yet still be an atheist hurts the case very much.
