body of christ

I had this insane thought the other day that wouldnt it be informative if the bones of Jesus were discovered, so much for rising from the dead body and soul. This discovery would puncture the foundation of Christianity.

It would be difficult to prove that it was indeed his body and probably even more difficult to get funding for this project.

2006 years ago is really not that long though as far as remains are concerned. Certainly it is a possibility that there is still viable DNA present.

Their are at least two problems with this thought: 1) What scientist would really be interesting in proving such a thing?
2) people who have the belief that either Jesus did rise from the dead or that he didnt are not basing their beliefs on evidence or lack therof, so how would evidence factor into the belief equation? would it really change their opinion at all.
