James Cameron Debunking Christ

Director James Cameron is holding a press conference Monday to announce that he has proof that Jesus Christ wasn't resurrected and that his burial cave was discovered near Jerusalem.

Time's Middle East Blog (which is rather poorly written, if I dare say) is reporting that Cameron has solid evidence to suggest that the "son of god" was actually more human than people think:

Let's go back 27 years, when Israeli construction workers were gouging out the foundations for a new building in the industrial park in the Talpiyot, a Jerusalem suburb. The earth gave way, revealing a 2,000 year old cave with 10 stone caskets. [Archaeologists] were summoned, and the stone caskets carted away for examination. It took 20 years for experts to decipher the names on the ten tombs. They were: Jesua, son of Joseph, Mary, Mary, Mathew, Jofa and Judah, son of Jesua.

Cameron is holding a New York press conference on Monday at which he will reveal three coffins, supposedly those of Jesus of Nazareth, his mother Mary and Mary Magdalene. News about the film, which will be shown soon on Discovery Channel, Britain's Channel 4, Canada's Vision, and Israel's Channel 8, has been a hot blog topic in the Middle East (check out a personal favorite: Israelity Bites) Here in the Holy Land, Biblical Archeology is a dangerous profession. This 90-minute documentary is bound to outrage Christians and stir up a titanic debate between believers and skeptics.

So will this Titanic director totally invalidate Christianity or will it just be another hotly-contested point of debate for years to come. Chances are the latter, but we're sure going to be watching the news to see what happens.
