Mostly the resurrection of Jesus I just can't seem to find any good evidence it wasn't true, I mean even Bart Ehrman agrees that people had visions of Christ after his death

I think you're approaching this the wrong way.

Do tell, what evidence has convinced you the resurrection happened. Is it verifiable? Is it falsifiable?

Ignorance is not to be ignored.

No, you're still dodging the question. What evidence suggests anything in the Bible is true? Including the resurrection or anything else central to the Bible's claims as they relate to the truth of Christianity and its god claims.

Uh -- How about the most obvious reason, namely the fact that people generally do not come back from the dead?

Bible lost Me forever at Genesis 3 when the Talking Snake™ showed up.

I'm thinking you may be granting false authority to the people you call "biblical scholars". That's like saying that "Alice's Adventure in Wonderland" was more than favourably reviewed by a well-respected book reviewer who also had an extensive knowledge of white rabbits, mock turtles, extinct birds, and the human sleep phase.

An accurate critique and representation of a book—even by an acknowledged expert reviewer—is neither here nor these as far as the ultimate veracity of its content goes.

I'm a creationist... I believe that man created God.

Well there's this https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Empty_tomb#Historicity

So, a story without any corroborating evidence is sufficient for you not only to believe something is true, but that belief is considered important enough for your whole life to revolve around?

Do you approach other beliefs this way too? For instance, if you can find no evidence against the Loch Ness monster existing, do you assume it (or any other mythical animal) is real? Do you assume that people who say they're abducted by aliens were actually abuducted because you've no evidence they weren't and they told the story so...it must be true? Consider

Or to put it another way, it's hard to consider an "empty tomb" evidence Jesus was real and possessed supernatural abilities when there isn't any evidence he was actually real. It seems like all you do is work backwards. Aka: confirmation bias. Have you ever considered that?

William Lane Craig has been defacing Wikipedia again.

That's basically a pamphlet from Novartis that says, "Eat more Ritalin!"

Flesh and blood of a dead star, slain in the apocalypse of supernova, resurrected by four billion years of continuous autocatalytic reaction and crowned with the emergent property of sentience in the dream that the universe might one day understand itself.

Pretty much everyone believer or atheist agrees Jesus existed it's the stories about him that are in debate
