... I mean, let's leave out the 'physical evidence' of miracles, which no doubt most of you here would consider bullshit anyway. David Blaine stuff, or whatever, if not outright lies.

I'm talking about the signs of a Christ in a persona? What then would you expect, devoid of the 'physical magic'? Serious question. Honest guv'.

I mean, you obviously have to be open-minded in this thread and therefore retract any surety in your physicalist beliefs, but this is the philosophy forum so what the hell.

Beyond physical miracles, what would you expect of the The Christ? This is a genuine question, so spare me the BS. I'm so tired of the BS.

By definition here, you seem to be asking about a Christ, an embodiment of god, who stays strictly within the laws of physics and chemistry (i.e. doesn't produce miracles). I would have thought that a god who stays strictly within the physicalist view of the world is rather carefully hiding their special power, the extra that makes them a god.
