James Cameron "Finds" Jesus...

James Cameron, noted filmmaker and the man who unleashed the raw sexuality of Leonardo DiCaprio upon a nation of unsuspecting teenage girsl, claims to have found Jesus.

Cameron, hitching his documentarian star to a fringe archeaologist, claims to have discovered a tomb near Jerusalem that dates back to the First Century AD and containing the earthly remains of Jesus, Mary (Magdalene, of course), and their male child.

If true, this could send shockwaves through Christianity as most -- if not all -- denominations believe that Jesus was assumed bodily into Heaven. It would also counter the Dan Brown/Da Vinci Code nuts who believe Mary Magdalene retired to the South of France and established the Merovingian Dynasty.

The Faithful, however, still have an ace in the hole on this. It seems the statistical occurance of names in First Century Palestine shows that variants of "Jesus" and "Mary" were extremely common. So there is no good reason to jump to the conclusion that this tomb belongs to that Jesus and Mary.

Jesus Christ lived seemingly so long ago. How can one possibly know if He was the Son of God and was resurrected? And even His contemporaries doubted His divinity right as they were in His very presence. I'm convinced that it comes down to a choice of what you want to believe. Then, if that belief is tested and you hold true to it, it is strengthened. Of course, there are times when you discover that beliefs you held are wrong. When I am confused about something, I usually find peace through prayer.
