The body of Jesus?

Time magazine reports on the discovery of the body of Jesus and his family.

27 years ago, Israeli construction workers discovered a 2000 year-old cave containing 10 tombs labeled "Jesua, son of Joseph, Mary, Mary, Mathew, Jofa and Judah, son of Jesua." According to Time, "[F]ilm-makers [James] Cameron and [Simcha] Jacobovici claim to have amassed evidence through DNA tests, archeological evidence and Biblical studies, that the 10 coffins belong to Jesus and his family."

I'm still quite skeptical. DNA tests? WTF? I guess I'll have to wait for the actual evidence.


  1. Didn't find the Ark while he was at it perchance?

  2. Isn't the Ark safely stashed in a government warehouse somewhere?

  3. Would that be the green one or the metallic looking one?

  4. Or the one this "Chemistry teacher" from a "Major US university" (Corpus Christi Texas) used as a master template to build his model from.

    You have to hand it to that Noah, he sure could throw a lump of wood together.
    Check out the intro on this clip, it's a pearl, not least the "wide eyed bushy tailed kids"

    Then if you are anything like myself, the rest of the clips in the series become a "must see"

  5. Whoops.

  6. Would Catholic ninja commandos have to kill James Cameron? Because that would be kind of rad. And also just punishment for Titanic.


Please pick a handle or moniker for your comment. It's much easier to address someone by a name or pseudonym than simply "hey you". I have the option of requiring a "hard" identity, but I don't want to turn that on... yet.

No spam, pr0n, commercial advertising, insanity, lies, repetition or off-topic comments. Creationists, Global Warming deniers, anti-vaxers, Randians, and Libertarians are automatically presumed to be idiots; Christians and Muslims might get the benefit of the doubt, if I'm in a good mood.
