RE: CNN - Finding Jesus
If it caters enough to the religious, it just might implant a seed of doubt in some....if it caters to us, the religious will just discard it.

I like it when the media produces "soft doubt" instead of just glorifying religion. It's a step in the right direction. You would not ever have seen something that harbored doubt when I was young. So, it's progress. Baby steps.

RE: CNN - Finding Jesus
I couldn't help but notice that they completely ignored the four different heads of JtheB scattered across Europe. Nor did it mention that the macabre fascination of jesus freaks with saints' body parts did not begin until much later and was only codified in the 8th century.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Relic

Quote:The Second Council of Nicaea in 787 drew on the teaching of St. John Damascene[18] that homage or respect is not really paid to an inanimate object, but to the holy person, and indeed the veneration of a holy person, is itself honour paid to God.[15] The Council decreed that every altar should contain a relic, making it clear that this was already the norm, as it remains to the present day in the Catholic and Orthodox churches. The veneration of the relics of the saints reflects a belief that the saints in heaven intercede for those on earth.

Atheism is NOT a Religion. It's A Personal Relationship With Reality!

I am quite offended and disagree wholeheartedly.

They found Nemo.

I think they should make a series called "Finding the Clitoris". It will satisfy over half the population and actually serve a purpose.
