I don’t know Cameron and haven’t seen Avatar. From what I’ve heard it sounds like typical Hollywood BS. But Pellegrino didn’t write the script. I wasn’t interested in THE JESUS TOMB, but I have enjoyed Charlie’s books about Thera, etc. The point is that, despite these other connections, I know that Pellegrino, as he put it to me, “burned his liberal card” on 9/11/01. His background is a bit more complicated than it might appear on the surface.

I enjoyed the Thera book, too. And my jaw about hit the floor when I read his Titanic book a while back and saw him referring to the possibility that Saturn’s moon Enceladus had a liquid ocean of water beneath the ice — written about two decades before the Cassini probe spotted evidence strongly suggesting it. Maybe Pellegrino has a bad rep for being somewhat sensationalistic in his writing for a popular audience, I dunno.
