I'm waiting for the DNA test of the Buddhas bones to see if hes related to the bones they dug up at Jesus's tomb in Jerusalem :jumping:

I'm not saying that the bone fragments were definitely the Buddhas (might have been but who knows). The show was interesting from a historical perspective and to see the location now. There was a lot of hand crafted jewelery and ornaments uncovered that was maybe from the Buddhas time or maybe Asokas time. Just to see a time capsule opened from several thousand years ago was interesting to me. Who knows, it could have been a fraud (one of the gentlemen from the time the original dig was made was known to be a bit shady). Watch for yourself and see what you think.
