He was a Jew. He was circumcised.

I seem to remember an old

I seem to remember an old christian urban legend about jesus' foreskin be preserved and held by the vatican.  There was a rumour that jesus was going to be cloned using cells from the foreskin in question.  If this was true, I suppose it would mean that he was circumsized..

After a quick search of everyone's favorite urban legend site, I found this:  http://www.snopes.com/religion/clone.htm

Jesus died for somebody's sins, but not mine

That is funny.  I wonder if the priests regard it highly.  Maybe even offer some prayer to it.  I mean they supposedly have the Shroud of Turin and that's just a piece of cloth, but I'm willing to bet they hold some reverence over the cloth as well.

I don't care what they put

I don't care what they put the skin in, it aint lasting no 2000+ years.

And they do have the Shroud of Turin. It's been dated and turned out being like 500 years old (not good news for the church). Plus, they showed how the negative of the face and all could have been done during that time, likely by Da Vinci I believe it was.

Well, I suppose if they hold reverance over the "shroud" of turin, they could hold reverance over the "hood" of turin as well.

Oh, that was bad.  I'm fired.

Great find, dude!  After reading it though, it leaves me to wonder, wouldn't that be like forcing gods hand and undermining he/she/it's authority?   I guess fanatical believers will stop at nothing though, huh...

Still, though.  Think about the great stem cells we could get from a divine zygote.
