A new “comedy series” takes place, in which the main actors are the Oscar-winning director James Cameron, the academic world’s instantly nay-saying “science bureucrats” and some Christian clergy that firmly believes “you cannot find the bones of the God.” The plot of the story focuses on some coffins and bones that were found in Israel and claimed to belong Jesus (a.k.a The Christ) and his family. The most funny thing is, some serious “scientists” enthusiastically bother to discuss an “archaeological find” about a “mythical figure” that had never existed in the real world but only mentioned in some “scriptures” which were obviously a synthesis of various ancient sources and myths that were borrowed during Constantine‘s reign in the 4th century. It is even certain that the city Nazareth was not existed before the end of the 1st century so there could never be a “Son of Man” that was known as “Jesus of Nazareth“.

But thanks to Dan Brown‘s “Da Vinci Code“, people learned quickly that sensational claims about a fictituous Jesus and Mary Magdalene could “sell well”. Mainstream media can jump on such stories but we expect scientists to be more cautious, while it is now widely accepted that “Maria of Magdalena” was not a flesh-and-blood woman that lived in the first century but the name was an “epithet” of the “Mother Goddess” of the Near East, who was also known as “Mari-Anat of Magdala“, where “Magdala” meant “towers”, defining a special temple in Levant that had three big towers in it. Read on the “comedy” about the “DNA of a non-existent god”… *sigh*

Film Challenges Christianity

(CBS/AP)�An Oscar-winning director is about to challenge the most elemental tenets of Christianity, claiming the bones of Jesus Christ were found in a Jerusalem tomb, but many archaeologists and clergymen have been quick to cast doubt on the movie’s assertions.
James Cameron’s “The Lost Tomb of Christ,” which the Discovery Channel will run on March 4, argues that 10 ancient ossuaries — small caskets used to store bones — discovered in a suburb of Jerusalem in 1980 may have contained the bones of Jesus and his family, according to a press release issued by the Discovery Channel.
The tomb bears the names Jesus, Mary and Joseph and one of the caskets even bears the title, “Judah, son of Jesus,” hinting that Jesus may have had a son. But scientists argue the names were extremely common during that time period, and in no way prove the Jesus buried at the site was Jesus Christ.
