A scientific exploration into the events reported to have occurred on the day that Jesus died.
Broken into Chapters; starting with 01 Was there really an earthquake on the day of the crucifixion ?
Comments are allowed staring with Chapter 03.
But first, I think I should explain who I am and what I am about. I am first and foremost a scientist. I am also agnostic. I assume the New Testament is a human document that contains errors. I am not trying to prove or disprove the Bible. I am treating the statement by Matthew that there was an earthquake on the day of the crucifixion as a hypothesis to be tested. I will publish whatever I can coax out of the sediments; whether this supports or contradicts biblical accounts. I am trying to rely on just the sediments to form conclusions about this earthquake. I have much respect for people of faith but I personally do not rely on faith. I am naturally curious and don’t know what the end result will be of the research I am undertaking.
