Is It Possible to Evaluate the Resurrection Without Believing In God or Miracles?

Clip Description—“While Dr William Lane Craig was on his 2013 Australian speaking tour, he spoke at the Sydney University Evangelical Union on the resurrection of Jesus. After his talk, he answered a number of questions from the audience. In this clip, Dr Craig answers the question, ‘Is it possible to evaluate the resurrection without believing in God or miracles?’”

(0:00) It is possible to prove the resurrection w/o appealing to God or miracles?  Where does it lead you?
(0:43) Yes, but it’s difficult and unnecessary.  Why shouldn’t I appeal to theistic claims and evidence? 
(1:19) Approach the question of God’s existence w/agnosticism, even then, can’t say the resurrection is improbable.  What reason would the agnostic have?
(1:45) Evidence for resurrection could lead agnostic to God (evidence points to resurrection, a miracle; God’s existence, which agnostic must consider possible, makes miracles possible).
