Dem Bones, Dem Bones, Dem Dry Bones

Whooee! Well friends an' foes, the Christians are all in a uproar concernin' these here bones that ol' James Cameron, the movie director, sez are the bones o' Jesus Christ an' his wifemate Mary Magdalene an' their little boy Judah. I guess there's some Christians who ain't got enuff faith in their God an' they're feelin' all threatened by the dang archaeologists.

Crimony sakes! Faith is faith an' facts are facts. The two ain't supposed be the same thing. If yer one o' them there faith-based fellers or gals, facts never mean nuthin' anyways so why worry about some old dead bones? I can't see how they could know what the Lord Jesus's DNA looked like so how in hell can anybuddy say these bones come from JC fer sure?

Now, down in Mexico, they got a lot o' fellers named Jesus. They call 'em Hey Soos in Mexican but they spell it Jesus jest like the Christmas baby. On Rawhide, they had a feller name o' Hey Soos who looked after the horses. So, who sez there weren't a buncha Jesuses in Jerusalem like down in Mexico? An everybuddy knows Mary was a common name. Shee-it! Jesus's Mum n' his girlfriend was both named Mary.

One thing's got me all pie-eyed confuddled like a cow knee deep in spring thaw. Howcum they waited 25 years t' tell everybuddy that they figger they found the bones o' the Son o' God?

Maybe it's like ol' Jack Nicholson said in that movie "You can't handle the truth."

The faith-basers don't hafta handle this inconvenient truth anymore'n they handle any other inconvenient truth. All's the faith-basers gotta do is have faith that these here bones come from some other Jesus, Mary an' Joseph.

I got better inconvenient truths t' fret over than a few boxes o' dry ol' bones.

Well said JimBobby. I'm probably going to touch off a firestorm within the Christian wing of the CPC but as someone who views man made religion as nothing more than another mythology these folk have nothing to worry about. If they have faith then that's all they need.

If they truly believe Jesus fed a mob with a few fish, walked on water and floated around in the clouds does it really matter what these scientists say? It shouldn't to them.

Anyway it's good to see ya again my friend!
