Scientists have discovered that the coffin of Jesus Christs brother was made of an unknown material

A sensation happened in the world of science. Specialists are certain that they found a stone of nonearthly origin hidden under the coffin of Jesus Christs brother.

.... Hundreds of such coffins have been found in Jerusalem during archeological excavations....

Actually, scientists say no such thing.

The article says that "ufologists" are saying this... people who haven't seen or examined the box.

The professor stated that the coffin was made of a material that does not exist on planet Earth. Hundreds of such coffins have been found in Jerusalem during archeological excavations. The research has showed that they were made in the first century A.D. That is why, the first thought that I had in my head when I saw Jacobs coffin was there is something wrong with it. The stone differed from all other stones that I saw before. It had very small pores that could hardly be seen. At the same time, it was incredibly solid. After the tests that we conducted in the lab, I can assure you that our planet does not know this material, said the professor.

--Professor says material not from our planet.--

However, the professor did not answer where the stone could have come from.

--Well, when the professor says it's not from our planet, then I think I might be right to say it's from another planet?--

I have several quibbles with the article... mainly, because they don't match any of the facts. This is why I'm convinced the article is just a hoax by someone who doesn't know anything.

The ossuary is of JAMES. You'd think the specialist would get this right. The archaeologist who translated the inscription is Lemarie, NOT "Andre Lemer. "

Since the article is quoting him, you'd think they'd know WHO they were quoting, right?

Second, the Royal Ontario Museum (where it's on display) says the box is limestone and fragile enough that it was cracked in transit.

So you've got an "expert" who doesn't exist or isn't associated with the ossuary saying that it's "alien stone" or "stone not found here on earth" and a raft of museum experts saying "it's limestone" (and by the way, it DOES look like limestone.)

Who ya gonna believe? A made-up expert or published scholarly reports from archaeologists and museums?

Yakov = Jacob --> In English translated to James.

Lemer or Lemaire (same pronounced, but I know...)

The americans have it now, must be important....

Brinks, which handled the transit, sent the ossuary first to New York, where it was unloaded and then loaded onto another plane, then to Hamilton, Ontario, where it was unloaded from the plane and loaded onto a truck, and then transported to Toronto, instead of shipping it on a non-stop plane to Toronto.

hmmmm?? Where's that good for?

( )

and a raft of "AMERICAN" museum experts saying "it's limestone"

Americans always speak the truth. We've learned that by now....

It could be limestone, but don't eat immediatly what they tell you, they've lied a thousand times about everything, why not about that.

I'll keep on digging on this one.

Actually, it's the Canadians who were saying it's limestone. The article you cited ALSO says it's limestone. So does every other source.

If the US scientists said it was limestone... and it wasn't, the Canadians would be delighted to get "one up" on the US scientists and publish the truth. There's plenty of cross-border rivalry and, as the Canadians on the board can tell you they'd LOVE to make the US look silly.

I'm sorry, but you can't excuse the closeness in spelling, because editors really ream reporters out over that. Scientists get mega-offended if you misspell their names. And you look like a fool if you report names wrongly. Nor could it have been a hasty mistake made from a transcript -- "Lemer" isn't pronounced the same as "Lemerie". One has one syllable. The other has two. They sound very different. An editor would have had other news sources available and would have smacked the reporter for such a dumb mistake.

Calling it "Apostle Jacob's Coffin" instead of the correct "Ossuary of James" (it's NOT a coffin, BTW. Ossuaries and coffins are VERY different things) is yet another mistake pointing to your article having been written by a hoaxer.

You can get as mad as you like... but your real anger should be directed toward the hoaxer who's trying to fool you.

Speaking of bible-UFO stuff, I saw a painting once, I think its a painting of the Last Supper where supposedly there is a big, black, eliptical object in the sky over Jesus' right shoulder. "They" were saying that it was too big to be a paint blotch or piece of dirt, and that it was meant to be painted. Ill try to locate the picture.
