Apart from all the archaeological bickering over this matter there is this one, simple, fatal flaw in the whole of Cameron's thesis:
How in the name of rational and sane humanity could a contemporary and universal belief in Jesus' death, accompanied by a story of an empty tomb and his resurrection from the dead, have produced thousands of new believers if Jesus was still alive, married, having children, and hanging out with at least one of his disciples (who was running around telling everyone that Jesus had died, risen, and ascended back into heaven as the Son of God)? And then later died and was buried along with everyone else in a local tomb with his bones later placed in an ossuary with his name carved into it! Would no one have noticed this?
James Cameron seems to think so.
My conclusion to all of this is that either Cameron is doing a very shabby job of deceiving us or he is doing a very good job of deceiving himself.
Either way, Jesus and the followers who proclaimed him to be Lord and Savior are, through this production, being publicly accused of being charlatans and frauds and the written records of the New Testament Gospels and Letters to be lies on top of lies.
While my Lord and my God can take this foolishness with heavenly laughter, I take this whole affair as just one more personal insult to my own faith, integrity, character, and intelligence.
James Cameron is a despicable man and those who are using this inexcusable fabrication to make a profit (including the Discovery Channel) are worth every bit of scorn that honest and decent folks can bring to bear against them.
No doubt Cameron already has an advance on his 30 pieces of silver.
I suppose someone might ask the question: "Does any of this cast any doubts about the fundamental truth of my Christian faith?"
In reply I offer the following headline: "James Cameron and the Discovery Channel Cause the Collapse of Christianity."
As they say in Hollywood, "Get real!"
