After seeing initial autopsy results, Knoxville police said they believe the man died from a medical condition, but they're still waiting until the final autopsy is complete before listing the cause of death as natural.

Um...what?  He wasn't a cat.  Humans don't usually hide when they think they're dying.

Was it crammed inside a little plastic egg?

My first thought was some homeless guy looking for a place to crash who just died in his sleep.

Where does the whole 3 days thing come from. The guy was buried late Friday, and was discovered missing Sunday morning. That's like a day and a half.

Dunno.  If I smelled something awful outside and went to look, I would not leave under the deck 'unlooked'.

also, in "the Ten Commandments", wtf is up with the relationship between Yul Brynner and the chick who digs Moses......but ends up bearing a kid for Brynner...(sp?)  aren't they brother and sister?  or cousins?

Did they bury him right when he died?  I don't know how they did it back then but there's usually a bit of a delay between death and burial.

It's come from scripture.

Friday - 1 day
Saturday - 2 days
Sunday - voila - 3 days

Jesus didn't rise three days later. He rose ON THE THIRD DAY. Died late Friday, rose early Sunday, so more like a day and a half later. Never understood why people screw this up so often.

"Don't worry, he's being recycled and will be back in a couple days."

if he does come back, and sees his shadow; do we get 6 more weeks of winter?

The whole bunny business comes from pagan Germany. You can't force entire tribes of heathens to join your religion without absorbing some of their practices.

The bunny was there first. Christian holidays are all tacked onto existing pagan holidays.

sort of relevant"

With that new book found about Jesus wife...I was thinking a funny skit would be something like this:

J - Hi, babe, I'm back from the dead.

Wife - Don't give me that sh*t! Where were you?

J - I was dead, with God for few.

W - Stop with the lies. You were with that whore, Mary!!

J - No babe. I was dead!

W - Get out of my house you lying piece of crap!

J - Fine, I wish I would have stayed dead than have to come back and put up with your crap!


Fin.

No more important than London Fields, if you value readability.

Except the celebration on Friday is a misunderstanding of the Sabbath day being talked about in the Gospels. It became assumed in Christian tradition that they were talking about weekly Sabbath starting at sunset on Friday when in fact it was on one of the seven annual Sabbath days that were celebrated at the time (high days as mentioned in Leviticus and several other places). Specifically the crucifixion and entombment took place on the annual Feast of Unleavened Bread on a Wednesday, which fell the day after passover in the year 31 A.D., a Tuesday.

Are you crazy? Have you never been to the movies? You just know something bad will be under there.

re: Three days

Doesn't the new day begin at sunset? Shortly after burial=the next day.  Sunset on Saturday=2 days and then on the third day=Sunday?

My guess, it was a homeless man who bunked down there for the night, then either had a heart attack, or died.  There's a story, could just be an urban legend, of them finding a bunch of dead bodies in the yard of an elderly woman who never kept up her yard.  Since it was overgrown, homeless men would crawl up to the sides of her house for warmth, and over the years three of them had frozen to death on various winters.  Also had been said to happen in Knoxville.
 
2014-04-18 11:46:08 AM  
Was his name Jesus?  Because I always hear Christians talking about finding Jesus.
 
2014-04-18 11:46:19 AM  
So are the older guys chopped liver?.

From the internets:

Elijah raised the widow's son (1 Kings 18:21).
Elisha raised the Shunammite's son (2 Kings 4:18-37).
Looks like Elisha couldn't even die with out his bones have power to raise the dead (2 Kings 13:21)

So there's that. No word it they left bodies under decks.

As a non-Christian, I think it's bullshiat we don't have a federal holiday for Easter.  Good Friday or Monday after, take your pick.  I promise to eat ham and eggs and enjoy another day off work.

There's no non-religious excuse for it. Christmas has always been more of a pagan, secular celebration than a religious holiday (which is why the Puritans banned it in New England for decades). It has only become more secular since the federal holiday was established in 1870, which is why the courts have upheld the constitutionality of the holiday (while acknowledging that purely religious government holidays are not OK).

Easter is religious and specifically Christian, and that's pretty much it. Having a federal holiday for it is a pretty clear First Amendment violation.

It's the same thing as when comic book geeks get really angry if you mistake Power Girl for Supergirl, or Trekkies get offended if you call Mr Spock "Doctor Spock".

After about two weeks, it probably oozed out of a Cadbury egg. Or at least his brains oozed out like one, out of his skull.
