These kinds of polls are pretty crude but they suggest that twice as many Canadians as CNN respondents are sucked in by schemes to cash in on loopy theories about Jesus - as in ‘The Da Vinci Code’.
CNN: Do you believe archeologists have found the remains of Jesus, Mary
Magdalene and their son? 24% Yes, 76% No
Globe and Mail: A new documentary suggests that Jesus may have been buried with a wife and son, do you believe this could be true? 61% Yes, 39% No
This also seems consistent with people’s willingness to sign on to global warming theory and Kyoto-type scams.
