According to the little known Gospel of Quintus the Orthopedist, (you prolly never heard of him), he got a new set of bones as part of his Easter outfit. Yes

I fully expect Pat Robertson, Joel Osteen and Ray Comfort to get on TV and announce that the game is up, Jesus never did anything and those are his bones in that ossuary.

Then they tell everyone to stop going to church and stop giving money to them. Big Grin

Jesus never existed. But again, it still would not matter if he did. There is still no such thing as magic babies being born without a second set of DNA, and humans do not survive rigor mortis. Someone did start Christianity, otherwise it would not exist at all. But it exists because of mere humans, not because of gods or man/gods which are completely false beliefs.

Just out of curiosity, when did the British titbit becomes 'tidbit'? Anyone?

Titbit is preferred everywhere else. Neither spelling is right or wrong. Titbit is older, but tidbit is etymologically justifiable (the first syllable likely comes from the archaic colloquialism tid, meaning tender). And tidbit is not so new itself; it was well established in American English by the early 1800s.

(09-06-2015 07:07 AM)TheInquisition Wrote:  Lost Tomb Of Jesus? Biblical Documentary Alleging Jesus' Marriage To Mary Magdalene, Jerusalem Burial, Cleared Of Fraud By Israeli Court

Proponents of the theory that Jesus married Mary Magdalene and had children with her scored a victory this week after an Israeli court cleared fraud charges against a documentary that claimed to have found evidence of the marriage inside what it called Jesus’ “lost tomb.” The court’s decision, which awarded one of Israel’s largest defamation settlements in recent years, is likely to revive long-standing archaeological debates about Jesus' earthly remains.

The court case derived from claims made in a 2007 Discovery Channel documentary by Israeli filmmaker Simcha Jacobovici called “The Lost Tomb of Jesus.” The film based its argument about Jesus’ burial and marriage on a 1980 archaeological discovery in the Talpiot area of Jerusalem, where an ancient tomb was found bearing Jesus’ name along with other well-known biblical names like Mary, Matthew, Joseph and Judas.


This is interesting, I don't know how you could prove it was Jesus' bones in the ossuary. I would think it would be just as likely his bones would be in some mass grave with the other criminals that were buried after a Roman execution.

I remember watching the documentary. Jacobovici was trashed by archeologists and historians for having no background whatsoever in the field.

I do agree, how would you ever prove that it was jesus's tomb. As for the fate of criminals after Roman execution... I do believe that the only archeological evidence for crucifixion (an ankle bone with a nail through) that has ever been found, was found in an ossuary, so the family was able to recover the remains of this crucified victim. Then again, you would think that the bones in the jesus ossuary would have similarly shown signs of trauma if it was the real historical jesus...

Spartacus and approximately 600 of his follwers were crucified along the southern road into Rome.

I don't have problem with Jesus existing at all. He probably existed and was crucified by the Romans for treason. But of course he wasn't a deity. He was born from 2 parents. Jesus probably was the Chris Angel or David copperfield of his time. There isn't such a thing as " miracles ". Jesus probably survived the cruxifiction and died from old age. Jesus was on the cross for a few hours. And cruxifiction victims lasted several days on the cross. I don't buy his "death " on the cross.

I saw it as well, plus I've seen other things by Jacobovici. I don't know whether it's his lack of background, but I've noticed that he will believe almost anything on the slimmest evidence. I'm mildly surprised that he's not into ancient aliens or conspiracy theories.
