James Cameron finds Jesus

... or at least he claims to not only have found Jesus's grave, but also the graves of Jesus's whole family.

Scholars don't believe him, Kobayashi Maru, Eric, The Anchoress and Steve are posting about it.

Apparently Cameron thinks that finding
10 ancient ossuaries - small caskets used to store bones - discovered in a suburb of Jerusalem in 1980
is evidence, because
One of the caskets even bears the title, "Judah, son of Jesus," hinting that Jesus may have had a son
All I can say is, if the name Jesus was anywhere near as common in Judea 2,000 years ago as it is today in Spanish-speaking countries (and the Phillipines - I knew a Philipino named Jesus), Cameron's got his work cut out for him.

Heck, even The Dude found Jesus at the bowling alley:

Update, Wednesday 28 February: What did I tell you?
Other archeologists note that the names listed by the documentarians were the most common names in use at the time for Jerusalem.

My email seems to be working again. Thank you for your patience.

Don't forget his last adventure trying to disprove the Bible here

Sad to know the ones who believe it will perish with James Cameron.
