Doing the Jim Carrey pelvic thrust of happiness


I KNEW that effing "burial box" was a hoax. I posted something extensive about it here in my LJ this last year. Several experts, including graphology and funerary experts of the time, were saying it was a forgery. Yet National Geographic ran a large article about it, claiming it was "proof" of Jesus' existance.

HA! I'm going to lemming this. Thank you!

Oh, the holy ivory pomegranate? That's totally authentic. We had one at our office white elephant exchange.. kept getting passed from person to person. Some people just don't know what original Jesus artifacts to give during the holidays.... oy!
