Video: Christianity Disproven by the Discovery Channel?

On March 4 the Discovery Channel will air their new documentary called the Tomb of Jesus (and what a nice web site they have to go with the program).

If you take this discovery seriously, the material remains unearthed and analyzed undermine some of the central narratives of Christian belief.

That's the conclusion drawn by one authority quoted by the NY Post who said about the discovery, "I think this is more fanciful and absurd theorizing. Every Christian knows that Jesus the son of God and man died and rose again on Easter Sunday," said New York Archdiocese spokesman Joseph Zwilling. "No alleged DNA test or Hollywood film is going to change that."

Well if you do take the film seriously, then it does change the factual basis of the Jesus story. It's either Christian tradition or the Discovery Channel.

There is no 'factual basis of the Jesus story'.
