    A happier ending to the story we all heard the first time... And there's a gift shop!!!

    Enjoy trolling your fundamental relatives with this story this weekend:

    http://travel.cnn.com/tokyo/visit/did-jesus-christ-live-and-die-northern-japan-065383/

    Did Jesus Christ live and die in northern Japan?
    Most people would expect the foundations of a global religion like Christianity to be undermined only in blockbuster style by secret hidden codes, Vatican cover-ups, the mysterious Illuminati or the like.

    Not in the quiet, understated and actually very peaceful style in which “Christ’s Grave” does it in one of the remotest parts of northern Japan.

    For if it’s true that Jesus Christ is buried as claimed just outside Shingo Village in Aomori Prefecture, then he obviously didn't die on the cross, rise again promising eternal life through his dad and, ultimately, give the world Christianity.

    Even if it's not true, it's still a pretty neat story.

    Tantalizing clues
    In fact, Christ chose a very nice spot in which to live and die. (I’ll skip the purportedlys and allegedlys or we’ll be here all night.)

    The graves -- plural because his brother, Isukiri, is also buried there -- are on a sheltered rise near where Jesus lived out his final and otherwise-unrecorded years.

    This is truly rural Japan, and in spring and summer the area is as green and lush as it's possible to be: Just try counting the myriad shades of green. Aside from the largely unassuming village of Shingo itself, it’s entirely forest surrounding farms.

    Aomori’s countryside is beautiful, and there are many worse places for eternal rest. Except, I suppose, to the minds of your two billion followers...

    Which is more plausible? Walking on water, or a man who lived 2,000 years ago walking from Israel to Japan twice in his lifetime?

    According to the legend, he caught a boat, making friends with local tradesmen.

    He is... The most interesting man in the world.

    I don't know how Jesus traversed the continents to get there but it could be true.

    If I could turn water into wine, I would have run a nice little business in my prime years before doing the martyr thing later in life.

    Is there any truth to the rumor that his 12 Apostles were Godzilla, Rodan, Mothra, King Kong, Ghidorah...
