Skip to comments.If James Cameron Were Honest About His "Discovery" (Jesus's tomb)
Posted on 03/03/2007 8:25:37 PM PST by do the dhue
This week Titanic director James Cameron and Canadian television director, Simcha Jacobovici stood proudly at the New York City library to announce the release of a new book and documentary called The Tomb of Jesus. They claim to have uncovered the remains of Jesus and his family, including Mary Magdalene, (Jesus supposed wife) and their child, Judah.
If he were honest, this is what Mr. Cameron would have said to the press:
My dearest friends in the media,
Thank you for being here. I must admit, I am pleasantly surprised so many of you have come. Our public relations company had quite the challenge to convince you our commercial projects were headline-worthy. After all, what we are peddling is pseudo-science based on old and discredited news. But we obviously hired the right company. They came through on their promise that you wouldnt remember, or wouldnt care, that when this tomb was discovered twenty seven years ago, the Jewish archeologist in charge of the investigation, Amos Kloner, determined it was not the tomb of Jesus and his family and that, in fact, it is unlikely Jesus and his relatives even had a family tomb. To think that not a single respected archeologist from the Holy Land region is willing to go on record that our claims are true, and still you are here with us today, is mind-boggling. How can we thank you enough?

Will a Vulcan named Spock narrate this film?
Cameron needs to show me the bones of a crucified man. If not, his bones could be that of Freddy Flintstone or Barney Rubble for all I know.
Ones day, Cameron will find those bones, but not here.
there are probably bones of crucified men all over that area!
Jesus was not the only person ever crucified in those days....heck...he wasn't even the only one crucified THAT day.
Communism and God are not compatible. The Communist party had a little trick they use to pull with the school kids in the U.S.S.R. They would tell the kids to pray to God for their school lunch. Then they would have them beg a member of the Communist party for some food. Of course, the Communist "god" always won.
He is risen indeed!
I'm so tired of this shameless capitalization over the "Da Vinci Code." So many idiots turned a neat piece of thrilling literature into a fact. Something that was supposed to be enjoyable actually became a matter for serious debate. Honestly, so many "TIME" magazine covers were wasted.
"Right next to this hole in the wall!"
Lincoln was right. You can fool some of the people all of the time, and the rest will watch.
He is risen indeed! Hallelujah!
You got the right idea. The media played this up because the MSM wants to discredit Christianity for the same reason that all Libs want to discredit it: it interferes with their plans to conform the USA into their image.
There was also a note discovered in the tomb stating that there were no WMD's in Iraq....
There you are! Proof positive!
The tomb is locked up in Al Capone's vault. Geraldo is going to do his next special on it.
Pretty tough to find the bones of a crucified, RESURRECTED man.
Because America faces unprecedented challenges, strength is the only answer. Strong military, strong economy, strong families.
One can also take another tack..
Try reading it with "establishment" as a noun...
The interpretation becomes much broader and restrictive of congressional power...
No Creator, no rights. Government then becomes "The Giver of Rights"...and also "The Taker".
Not only will he see those bones but he must answer to those bones
Jesus's tomb is under the Church of the Holy Sepulchre. Helena found it easily enough three hundred years after the crucifixion. Locals showed her where it was and said people prayed there all the time. Graffiti had been carved in the rock, 'Jesus, pray for me', etc.. It was well known. (This is what happens when something remarkable occurs, especially Christ rising from the dead. People have long memories.) Cameron and his ilk are cynical blaspheming vultures. Anything for a fast buck, especially at Easter or Christmas. Cameron's tomb is the same one where the fake ossuary was planted a few years ago. That forger is in jail.
Yes, the Soviets also renamed Petrograd to Leningrad. Petrograd was built by and named after Russian Tsar, Peter the Great.
When the Soviet regime collapsed, the people of Leningrad petitioned the new Russian Federation to rename their city to St. Petersburg, after the Apostle Peter.
The Russian Federation granted their request, whereupon the people of St. Petersburg converged upon the vast Nevsky Plaza for a celebration. They pulled down the huge 80' statue of Lenin in the center of the Plaza, smeared it with dog feces and urinated on it, smashed it to pieces with sledge hammers and jack hammers, and dumped the rubble into the bay.
In 1998, the remains of Tsar Alexander Romanov, and his family, who were murdered at the behest of Lenin, were located in an abandoned mine. The people of St. Petersburg lined up reverently for miles as the caskets were wheeled down the streets on horse-drawn carriages for a State funeral.
So much for the love of Communsm.
Oh, the Russian word for Saturday is Sabat and for Sunday is Voskressnya, which means Resurrection. The Soviets were never able to change the names of those days, which point to the seven-day Creation and the Resurrection of Jesus.
Also, they were never able to change the number of days in a week, which point to the Creation.
Your film-making skill resides in creating the appearance of reality, but in all your years of work and life, you have never been capable of changing facts.
It is a fact the Jesus Christ was crucified, died, and rose from the dead, and is alive forevermore.
As the Psalmist wrote: "The fool says in his heart, there is no God."
You, sir, are a fool.
And I know you are right because I feel Him in my heart.
Praise Jesus Christ, my Lord and Saviour!
And a good Sunday morning to all!
Three weeks of media treatment and the truth is recognized by all.
I'll keep tongue out of cheek and refrain from "proper noun" jokes..
Actually, nearly all legal opinions I have read refer to the verbal interpretation.. i.e., "establishing" a religion, or state church.. ( state, in this case meaning federal. )
This is also considered the historical basis for the amendment..
That Is the distinction I was trying to make..
The verbal interpretation simply restricts the federal government from "establishing" a national church or religion..
It is a somewhat limited prohibition..
Interpreting establishment as a noun is more broad, and all inclusive..
Such an interpretation basically prohibits congress from making ANY law concerning religion.. Period..
Present day legal opinions tend to use the noun interpretation as "implied".. ( maybe inherent in some cases )
But the interpretation as noun has been vague, and often inconsistent in application..
I see it as a verb. The State can not tell us to go to the First Glory Bound Baptist Church of America.
I guess I do feel that the State should not be in the Church Business.
Now, I also feel that the people make up the body of the State and the people make up the body of the Church. So, sometimes you can not keep the Church from being in the State's business. You can keep the State from the Church's business, but you can not keep the Church from the State's business.
Our women must be smart women. To have picked up a couple of BRILLIANT thinkers like us, they have to be smart. :-)
Oh great, and director for the the "Lets pretend people" is telling the world to beleive that what he says is true.
Oh well, the is one born every minute.
We were in Russia early in 2002.
The Russian people commonly refer to Lenin's embalmed body, kept in a mausoleum in Red Square, as "The Mummy." Real reverent, eh?
March 8 is International Women's Day, one of the biggest holidays on the Communist Internationale Calendar. On March 8, the Soviet government would bus thousands of workers and students to Red Square to line up and pay "homage" to "The Mummy".
We were in Red Square on March 8, "International Women's Day", 2002.
It was empty.
Nobody was visiting the Mummy.
But the shopping malls were FULL.
It was an exquisite exhibition of the triumph of Capitalism over Communism.
Yes, I LOVED it!
