Jesus’ bones found in tomb?

LosttombBelieve it or not, a masterfully executed publicity stunt about the bones of Jesus probably will prompt millions watch the Discovery Channel’s "The Lost Tomb of Christ" and once again we see pop media fail to prove anything to anyone.  "New" scientific evidence?  In fact, the BBC did a documentary on this same information 11 years ago!  Scholars dispute (Holy Land Scholars Slam Jesus Tomb Claims AP) the bones found as authentic and it is appears to be unlikely that this will matter much to people of faith.  However, this is great water cooler stuff!

A Quote from the press [CBS5.com]:

But CBS News correspondent Mark Philips reports that, although archeologists have long argued over the factual and historic accuracy of Christianity’s version of history, in this case, the archeological establishment has lined up to label this claim as bunk.

Amos Kloner, the first archaeologist to examine the site, said the idea fails to hold up by archaeological standards but makes for profitable television.
