It seems James Cameron has intellectually rimmed The DaVinci Code so that he can then turn around and French kiss the viewers of The Discovery Channel with his so-called “evidence” of Jesus’ lost tomb, which allegedly includes the ossuary of Mary Magdalene.
As the story goes, in the 1980s there were 10 ossuaries dug up from a cave, with names Jesua, son of Joseph, Mary, Mary, Mathew, Jofa and Judah, son of Jesua. It seems not the slightest deterrent that, “Israel’s prominent archaeologist Professor Amos Kloner didn’t associate the crypt with the New Testament Jesus. His father, after all, was a humble carpenter who couldn’t afford a luxury crypt for his family. And all were common Jewish names.“
Hmmm. Wasn’t there just a few years ago another ossuary? Indeed. The “James, Son of Joseph, Brother of Jesus” burial box. Everyone had a big jizz fest over that one, but then it too was discredited by the Israeli Antiquities Authorities, as well as other scientific experts. Further, its owners were arrested for selling other fraudulent antiquities. (I’m not even going to get into the sordid role that The Discovery Channel played in supporting the James ossuary hoax. And they’re still ass raping the gullible with their DVD on the subject.)
Oh, but wait! Mr. Terminator is claiming there was an auspicious “space” between the bone boxes in the cave — and that obviously the discredited James ossuary is the “missing” ossuary in that tomb!
Today, I will spare you all my usual rant about the difficulties of even proving the historicity of Jesus because, honestly, I don’t think one even needs to open that can of worms to see the nonsense here. The summary of the show as presented on the DS website reveals such an intellectual mess that no doubt “The King of the World” will have his latest ship sunk by the hard logic of the thinking community, despite the fact that he is obviously trying to appeal to the non-religious.
(Thanks to this guy for the heads up.)
