OK MODS, before you move this to the Religion forum, PLEASE let all in the PoFo get a look at this one...


NEW YORK – In yet another bold display of investigative journalism, CBS News has used anchorman Dan Rather and its 60 Minutes program to break a story about a document discovery they say disproves the Biblical account of the resurrection of Jesus Christ.

"The documents we're about to show you are sure to turn the world of Christianity on its proverbial ear," Rather told the audience at the top of the 60 Minutes report. "I want to assure our viewers that we have done everything humanly possible to ensure the authenticity of these documents, and CBS News is thoroughly convinced that they are indeed the real deal."

CBS went on to show images of what they say are entries from diary-like memoirs written in the days after the crucifixion of Christ by Thomas, one of Christ's 12 disciples. The documents were provided to CBS News by an anonymous source.

The entry most damning to the Biblical resurrection story, according to CBS, is one that appears to have been written by Thomas at the end of the day on Sunday, April 12th, 0033—exactly one week after what would have been the very first Easter Sunday. That entry begins with the sentence, "Not much exciting happened today." The "today" referred to, if the documents are to be believed, would have been the day Thomas (known to most Christians as "Doubting Thomas") met a resurrected Christ and felt the nail holes in His hands and the wound in His side.

I really couldn't decide whether to open this in the PoFo, the Religion forum or political jokes!! Dan Rather has REALLY made himself completely irrelevent. You guys (and one awesome Diva) have GOT to read this, look at the images of the parchments. I didn't know the word "bummer" was so regularly used.

I figured with all of the bickering with the campaign, we could all use a good laugh.

I didn't know the Disciples kept diaries. Or anyone in the 1st century for that matter.

Though the Anno Domini dating system was devised in 525, it was not until the 8th century that the system began to be adopted in Western Europe. According to the Catholic Encyclopedia, even popes continued to date documents according to regnal years (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Regnal_years), and usage of AD only gradually became more common in Europe from the 11th to the 14th centuries.[4] (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Anno_Domini#cite_note-CathEncy-3) In 1422, Portugal (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Portugal) became the last Western European (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Western_Europe) country to adopt the Anno Domini system.[4] (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Anno_Domini#cite_note-CathEncy-3)

I don't know if it is or isn't. My roommate here in Iraq sent me the link, I opened it, read it and just laughed my asteroids off.

Had to share it with my PoFo buddies

April 13, 0033

Dear journal,

Ok so yesterday was like completely boring, but today was just freaking AMAZING!! A couple of buds stopped by and said that place where they put the body of that Jesus dude was completely empty! They believe he has risen from the dead. I was nervous at first because I'm afraid of zombies, but they assured me it was a spirit, not his actual body.

I didn't believe any of this so I checked out Jesus' Facebook and that's when I saw that Jesus updated his status to "Yo I'm back! See ya when I see ya! Peace out." I was like OMG!!

So yeah, today was pretty rad.

Thomas the 12th Desciple XOXOXOXO

The bible will always be attacked, it's the way of the world, if you distract enough ppl, souls will be lost...it's up to ppl to research and get the truth..FOR ME, that's Christ was crucified, Christ has risen, and Christ will come again..period..
