The Tomb Of Jesus Debate: The Real Deal, Or Just A "Money Making Scheme?"

Those wacky Christians amuse me!! There's a debate brewing about the discovery of what could very well be the tomb of Jesus.

Filmmakers and scholars on Monday unveiled two stone ossuaries they said could have contained the remains of Jesus and Mary Magdalene, but several other scholars derided claims in a new documentary as unfounded and contradictory to basic Christian beliefs.

Well of course "scholars" would get their panties in a wad over this. I mean, how dare anyone contradict "basic Christian beliefs." After all, everything that is written in the Bible and espoused in Christian churches all over the world is the gospel, right? If it were true, that would mean that money-hungry churches would be out of business. Why? They would be out of business because everything that they've ever taught people would be a lie. The very "book" that they preach from would be a lie. And we just can't have that, so of course these "scholars" would denounce anything that would compromise their cash flow.

One of the caskets bears the title, "Judah, son of Jesus," hinting that Jesus may have had a son, according to the film. The very fact that Jesus had an ossuary would contradict the Christian belief that he was resurrected and ascended to heaven.

Now we can't have that!! We have to let people actually believe that he was brought back to life, and rose up to those puffy little white clouds in the sky. We have to let them believe it's possible even though it's not. We have to let them believe in fairy tales because if we don't, they might revolt!! They might start to question everything that they've ever been told, and that would be bad because the sheep must remain ignorant to reality!!

Most Christians believe Jesus' body spent three days at the site of the Church of the Holy Sepulcher in Jerusalem's Old City. The burial site identified in Cameron's documentary is in a southern Jerusalem neighborhood nowhere near the church.

Yeah see, it has to be a hoax. You see, the body of Jesus was somewhere else. So, it can't be true.

"I don't think that Christians are going to buy into this," Pfann said. "But skeptics, in general, would like to see something that pokes holes into the story that so many people hold dear."

Why wouldn't people "buy" this story? Oh wait, that's because they've been brainwashed for years into believing the fairy tales contained in the Bible. The Bible's good!! It has many fairy tales in it. Let me just name a few. There's the one about a human being created from the rib of another human. There's the one about being able to part water. How about the one where someone wandered in the desert for 40 days, and emerged alive despite the fact that he would have surely died due to sun exposure or lack of food and water? I like the one where Moses talked to a burning bush. I think it was Moses. These days, he would have been thrown into a padded room and held in the psych ward. But my ultimate favorite fairy tale is the one about people living to be 900 plus years old. Yeah, that's really plausible!!

Remember, Christians won't buy this story. But they'll buy the fairy tales in the Bible that are drilled into their heads over and over again by their wonderful church leaders. Who's delusional here?

It's typical Christian behavior. I'm surprised that they're not crying "Anti-Christian" here with this one. God forbid that anyone touch their precious "cloud being." God forbid that anyone mess with their perfect little fairy tale. They have this image of who and what Jesus was brainwashed into their heads. If anyone dares to question that image, beware!! They just might go rabid dog on your ass!!
