Jesus' Tomb and "The God Delusion", Eh?

Le sigh.

Jesus' Tomb
Another year, another futile attempt to disprove the historicity of the biblical Jesus. This year, so far, it's the alleged tomb of Jesus & co (Discovery Channel site here).

Others more competent and patient than I have responded. A brief listing replete with corny titles:
The God Delusion
In other news, Alvin Plantinga says of Richard Dawkins' attempt at disproving God in The God Delusion:
You might say that some of his forays into philosophy are at best sophomoric, but that would be unfair to sophomores; the fact is (grade inflation aside), many of his arguments would receive a failing grade in a sophomore philosophy class.
Le yawn. Can we have a real fight, please, people?

(Alright, attempting to disprove the Father and the Son might be so two millennia ago. But these so-called "controversies" also give us opportunities to make a defense to anyone who asks us for a reason for the hope that is in us (1 Peter 3:15), for their salvation, and to the glory of God.)

NY Times published this article on Darwin's God. What do you think?

Apparently nobody told James Cameron that the tomb of Jesus had already been found in Kashmir. Wait, wait -- no, apparently the tomb is actually found in the Herai village of Japan. OK, well at least it gives me some options to consider.... wait, you mean there's more? Jesus is actually buried in France? (Oh yes, the DaVinci Code mystery).
