Resurrection Objections to SD.png


Christian Physicalism_.jpg

Although most Christians throughout the history of the church have maintained beliefs in both substance dualism (here after, dualism) and bodily resurrection, some Christian materialists argue that these two doctrines are in conflict. Some argue that that dualism makes expiations of why bodily resurrection truly difficult, or that dualism should be rejected as bodily resurrection is better accounted for by Christian physicalism. Let’s call such arguments resurrection objections. Various forms of these objections have been raised by Lynne Rudder Baker, Trenton Merricks, and Kevin Corcoran, among other. My goal is to show that not one of these arguments provides a definitive or even serious problem for dualism, which in turn undermines a common motivation for Christian physicalism.
