First of all, I'd like to make it clear that I have no position on this whatsoever. I have not seen the documentary and I don't know enough about all this archaeology stuff to make a call.

I simply have a rhetorical question. If we can't convince the typical fundamentalist that gravity exists and that it is responsible for planetary motion, how likely is it that we can convince him about this Jesus Tomb thing even if god the father appears in front of the whole world telling it that the site is the authentic Jesus' Tomb and the skeletal remains is that of Jesus and his family?

Please, admit you know nothing, and stop shouting this garbage as if it is worthy of a glance.


You know, you've brought a whole new meaning to quote mining. In my post that you responded to, I specifically said...

As you can clearly see, I admitted to my own ignorance. In the next part of my post which you responded to...

After rereading my own words, I still don't see how that could have come across as proclaiming myself to know anything.

So, is this one of those prophex rebellious know-it-all moments or have I offended you in the past and now everything I say makes you angry?

And finally, there are all sorts of reasons why Catholics believe in Jesus' divinity that are not accepted by other christians. Miracles and such.


I'm curious about something. Other religions, past and present, have records of supposed miracles also. If a miracle happens, why does the deity behind the miracle have to be the judeo christian god? Why can't it be apollo or athena? In other words, if a person experiences a revelation and sees a woman deity figure, why does it have to be the virgin mary? Why can't it be aphrodite?
