But the resurrection was being proclaimed within weeks of the event.

But the writings we have that describe it were written decades later. Paul's earliest letter was written maybe 20 years after.

I've yet to see any naturalistic account of the accepted facts surrounding the resurrection (empty tomb, the post-resurrection appearances, and the origin of the Christian faith) that is not ad-hoc and less plausible than the resurrection hypothesis itself.

Accepted facts?

I have a few Craig debates on MP3. I'll listen to them.
