Is this why he called the second Terminator "Judgement Day?"

He did say he was "King of the World," and now he's gonna prove it. . . or at the very least, get rid of his biggest competitor:

In a new documentary, Producer [James]Cameron and his director, Simcha Jacobovici, make the starting claim that Jesus wasn't resurrected --the cornerstone of Christian faith-- and that his burial cave was discovered near Jerusalem. And, get this, Jesus sired a son with Mary Magdelene.

No, it's not a re-make of "The Da Vinci Codes'. It's supposed to be true.

Here's the link.

I, too, think this shit played out with The DaVinci Code, and even when the novel was at the height of it popularity, this all seemed to me like nothing more than a faddish bout of pretend atheism. This irritates, since I am an atheist, and as such continue to wonder why people are still shocked when someone starts questioning official biblical history, especially considering that modern religious skepticism arguably began with Spinoza's Tractatus Theologico-Politicus back in 1670.

I can't help but picture good little Christians picking up a copy of DaVinci at Coles, palms sweaty, heart pounding, hands shaking, thinking to themselves "I'm so dirty!"

But I digress. . .

It's a funny combination, with pretty strong comedy potential-- hell, I've already made two puns in the past five minutes. It doesn't look like anyone has taken advantage of the parody potential yet, so for now I'll just post this remarkably prescient Mad TV sketch:

Yes, Nay, it's a video. And yes, Nay, the Terminator sounds like Kermit the Frog. At least I can spell. Prick.

The more of I see and hear of the Jesus guy the more I like him. I think he's getting a bad rep from the Christians and Catholics, most pictures they have of him gives him this lazy or wandering eye.
