I remember once when the Shroud of Turin was in the news and was about
to C-14-tested, a family member turned to me and said, "Wouldn't it be
wonderful if they could prove it was Jesus's?" I was shocked, and said,
"Of course not!" (aside from the fact that it would have been only
possible to prove that it was the shroud of a 1st century Palestinian
man, there's the religious principle that faith comes *before*
knowledge, according to how I read Jacob 1:5-6 and Alma 31:32).  I'm
reminded of this again with the James ossuary.

A common-sense splash of cold water from today's Globe and Mail:

“Man will occasionally stumble over the truth, but most of the time he
will pick himself up and continue on” – Winston Churchill
