My question relates to the honorable burial of Jesus by Joseph of Arimathea. Several mainstream scholars (Bart Ehrman in particular), have stated in books and blogs that Jesus probably never receive a decent burial.

Matt, can you explain why is objectively true that moral being is always greater that a being that isn’t?
I have a Christian friend who says that we can know nothing empirically. He goes far enough to say that nothing can be proven with certainty. This has been bothering me because I cannot show that he is wrong. Is there a way to deal with uncertainty in our lives?
I have been married to my wife for 7 years. If ever I looked at a person and saw someone who loved Jesus, it would be my wife.
