Odd web discovery of the day

Apparently, a group of people in Japan believe that Jesus Christ not only visited Japan during his life, but that he was also married, died and was buried there, in a location prominently marked and visitable today.

why not :-)

getting a ride to pick up my truck from service, a fellow passenger from the neighborhood, relating his neighbor's brickwork talents, said the man says god tells him to do it....

why not :-)


but I give reasonable doubt more credence

btw, looking up 'credence' to check my spelling, I see that it also means a small table, shelf or niche in a church for holding the elements of the Eucharist before they are consecrated

Wasn't Christ also purported to have visited India? Anything is possible, I guess, and since none of us has personally interviewed Him, I'll reserve judgment. That said, this book Lamb: The Gospel According to Biff, Christ's Childhood Pal by Christopher Moore is hilarious!

Why not, indeed.

If I was God, I certainly wouldn't sit around in heaven listening to harps all day. I'd creep through my rain forests, dive down into the Marianas trench, do lunch in Deutschland, and dry childrens' tears everywhere along the way.
