"Jesus tomb found"

BBC NEWS | World | Middle East | Jesus tomb found, says film-maker

I don't see why this is getting so much coverage, the important part of the title to not is "film-maker". James Cameron may be good at making hollywood blockbusters but is hardly a respected authority on archeology or theology etc. Ah wait:

But Mr Cameron's claim has been attacked by archaeologists and theologians as unfounded.
Oh, so you mean this is a load of bollocks made up by someone who doesn't know what they're talking about, probably just to get some promotion for their new film? The amount of space given to this story by the mainstream media (bbc, guardian) is ridiculous, apart from the fact that he's claiming to have found the grave of someone who didn't even exist. It's like if Britney Spears claimed to have found the grave of Paddington Bear, would that be front page news? Would it? WOULD IT!?!!?!?!?

obviously there was once someone called Jesus. There was probably someone called Dave too, once. Do you mean he did all these supposed miracles, but wasn't the son of god?
