The whole of Christianity stands on the resurrection of Jesus. In fact, Paul states, "We apostles would all be lying about God—for we have said that God raised Christ from the grave. But that can’t be true if there is no resurrection of the dead. And if there is no resurrection of the dead, then Christ has not been raised" (1 Corinthians 15:15-16). Paul says that without the resurrection of Jesus, they (the apostles) are all a bunch of liars.
One of the biggest evangelist of all times, the apostle Paul, gives atheism the blueprint for the destruction of Christianity. If I were an atheist, I would not waste my time calling Christianity false because I believe it to be a fairy tale, I would go right for the jugular - the resurrection. If I were an atheist, I wouldn't waste my time on evolution as the best explanation, I would attempt to destroy the Jesus story. If it can be shown that the bodily resurrection is untrue then Christianity is toast. If I were an atheist I would use Paul's blueprint to blowup the Christian religion.
One problem exists for the atheist - the bodily resurrection of Jesus fits the evidence of truth. Throughout the centuries various stories have been put forth to counter the bodily resurrection of Jesus, but all have come to naught. If I were an honest and open-minded atheist, maybe I should reconsider the evidence, but where would that leave me?
