"Extraordinary claims require extraordinary evidence"

 I fully accept that if there were gods that they would be able to do "miraculous" things, and that if these things were done in days of yore that they might have been written down as eye-witness accounts. But what bothers me (apart from the diverse and internally inconsistent nature of such accounts) is that since the timing of salvation is clearly not an issue (many people died before the salvation event), why could this event not have been delayed until a time of scientific and rational scrutiny?

The fact that these reported events occurred at a time of general illiteracy is suspicious if nothing else.
