Miracles and Historic Method

Richard Carrier has some fringe ideas when it comes to the historicity of Jesus, but he is trying to convince others and change consensus within the community of historians.  In pursuit of that goal, he has a lot of useful things to say about historical method and how it's been applied (and should be applied) to miracle claims.

Carrier recently spoke about historical method at Skepticon 5.  I love this talk because it is just full of juicy tall tales from the time of Christ that Christians don't believe.  What I love more is that most of those stories where obviously and definitively made up by Christians.
