Archaeological Minefields airs tonight on Vision TV at 11, following a rebroadcast of Jacobovici's film at 9 p.m. A third film, Unearthed: The Talpiot Tomb, airs at 2 a.m. All three repeat later in the week.
A Canadian Documetary producer and friend of the guy that did the Jesus tomb film sets the record straight.
Perhaps the most damning of Himel's findings is that ossuaries were routinely reused over several generations, and that the 10 ossuaries in the Jesus tomb may have held up to 35 separate sets of bones. In the film, archaeologist Joe Zias calls it "intellectually dishonest" to suggest each box held one set of bones.
That means the inscriptions found on the ossuaries do not necessarily represent a nuclear family, as implied in Jacobovici's film. It also indicates that results of DNA tests on bone fragments in the boxes labelled "Jesus" and "Mary Magdalene" are largely meaningless. The results had suggested the people were married, since they weren't related.
So another attempt to discredit Christianity goes bust. I'm sure this will get 1/1000000 the press coverage the first film got. [/quote]
