       The Canadian filmmaker behind a controversial new documentary that suggests an ossuary unearthed in 1980 contained the bones of Jesus Christ is fending off criticism of his work, saying his aim was to encourage debate rather than make a quick buck.
       While critics say "The Lost Tomb of Jesus" is misleading and simply a money-making venture, director and producer Simcha Jacobovici denies that. .
       "I think really people are reacting to rumours and not to facts, and I'm just hoping that they're going to start reacting to facts," the Toronto-based filmmaker said Wednesday. .
       The documentary highlights the discovery of an ancient tomb in Israel that contained 10 bone-filled ossuaries, with six bearing inscriptions of names. One ossuary bears the name "Jesus, son of Joseph," and the rest bear names known to be members of Jesus' family. .
       Religious scholars have been angered by the film's suggestion that archeological evidence from the ossuaries suggests Jesus was married to Mary Magdalene and fathered a son. .
       The film includes a statistical analysis done at the University of Toronto that concludes that because all six names were found in the same tomb, it was likely the resting place of the family of Jesus of Nazareth. ( Allison Jones TORONTO (CP).

       To resolve the question of whether the remains of Jesus and Mary Magdalene may have rested in two limestone boxes discovered in a Jerusalem suburb, the filmmakers of a new documentary took novel approaches -- including turning to statisticians. .
       Some religious scholars and archeologists, however, have not been convinced by the numbers. .
       Canadian filmmakers showed the two boxes on Monday while promoting their documentary, "The Lost Tomb of Jesus," produced by Oscar-winning director James Cameron and airing on the Discovery Channel on March 4 in the U.S. and Vision TV in Canada on March 6. .
       The documentary argues that 10 first-century bone boxes, called ossuaries, discovered in 1980 may have contained the bones of Jesus and his family. .
       One of the boxes even bears the title, "Judah son of Jesus," hinting that Jesus had a son. The claim that Jesus even had an ossuary contradicts the Christian belief that he was resurrected and ascended to heaven. .
       A panel of scholars that joined the filmmakers Monday at the New York Public Library addressed that criticism and others. .
       James Tabor, a professor of religious studies at the University of North Carolina at Charlotte, said that while literal interpreters of the Bible say Jesus' physical body rose from the dead, "one might affirm resurrection in a more spiritual way in which the husk of the body is left behind." .
       But Albert Mohler, president of the Southern Baptist Theological Seminary, said Christianity "has always understood the physical resurrection of Christ to be at the very centre of the faith."( Karen Matthews NEW YORK (AP) .

Regele s-a intors la Peles!

Castelul Peles

       Cele doua castele si terenurile au fost restituite regelui Mihai I in baza Legii nr. 10 din 2001.
       Avocatul Casei Regale, Adrian Vasiliu, a declarat mass-mediei ca aceasta ar fi interesata sa cedeze statului roman, contra unei sume in jurul a 30 de milioane de euro, Castelul Peles, partea veche a Palatului Foisor si terenurile aferente, in cursul acestui an.
       Pe de alta parte, ministrul Adrian Iorgulescu a mentionat ca statul roman va face o evaluare a domeniilor, precum si a imobilelor pe baza unui audit, cu specialisti din tara si strainatate, urmind ca apoi sa-si manifeste dreptul de preemptiune si sa le rascumpere.
       Pelisorul insa, va deveni asa-numitul Scaun al Casei regale unde va locui familia regala.

“Copiii lui Hitler”, rascolesc triste amintiri

'Copiii lui Hitler' nascuti de mame norvegiene in urma unor relatii cu soldati germani       Dupa cum relateaza site-ul BBC, din 8 martie “copiii lui Hitler” nascuti de mame norvegiene in urma unor relatii cu soldati germani, in timpul celui de al doilea razboi mondial, cer compensatii autoritatilor norvegiene pentru anii īn care au fost discriminati si abuzati, īntr-un proces la Curtea Europeana a Drepturilor Omului.
      Cunoscuti drept "copiii lui Hitler", acestia au fost conceputi si crescuti īn cadrul unui experiment nazist secret al carui scop era sa fie obtinuta "rasa pura", adica blonzi cu ochi albastri, care urmau sa populeze cel de-al Treilea Reich, se mentioneaza in articol.
      Istoricul Mircea Stanescu adauga: “De fapt este vorba, īn parte, si de "Lebensborn" - copiii rezultati īn urma unui Program nazist de selectie a elementelor - femei - considerate cu ascendenta "ariana", si īncrucisate cu germani-pur-sīnge. Copiii rezultati erau luati de līngą mame si crescuti īn case speciale. Dupą Rązboi, au avut o soartą mai crunta decīt se spune īn acel articol: au fost considerati - īn baza unei "analize" a unui psiholog norvegian-de-Stat īn vogą - drept posesorii unui handicap grav (un fel de alienati mintal) si izolati īn alte case speciale. Unul dintre acesti copii din afara programului nazist, care a scąpat de internare (emigrīnd īn Suedia), este bruneta de la Abba, Frida, care si-a cunoscut tatąl - german - foarte tīrziu, dupą ce devenise celebra. Relatia lor nu s-a īnjgebat, nu a tinut, iar cīntąreata a refuzat orice contact cu organizatia fostilor Lebensborn.”
