Randi: Amazing. The Bible: Not so much.
There are many claims in the Bible, and in this YouTube video, James Randi casts a critical eye on the "facts" therein. It seems that the archeological record and the Biblical record are somewhat at odds, and despite protests from religious "scholars," the evidence points to the idea that Nazareth, for example, did not exist as portrayed. (from a post by Jeff Wagg on the James Randi Educational Foundation website blog)
