I'm impressed!  The last time I saw photos of Jesus, he had long flowing locks.  Damn hippie!  Tonight I came home to this circular:

Almost trendy!  At least it's not a mullet!  

Jesus has really cleaned up his act.  A goatee would be better, but hey, this is 2013 and full facial hair is in again.  Plus, it's nicely trimmed, if full.

I remember reading somewhere, Jesus didn't really have the Tiny Tim hair style anyway.  Something about, being a carpenter, the long hair was in danger of getting caught in his band saw or power drill and then he would need to miracle himself.

Not sure of his ethnicity - Alsatian maybe?  

Well, at least everyone is smiling.  They all have nice white teeth, too!  Another of Jesus miracles, detailed in the book of Crest.

Then there's the 6-pack abs.  How did he get those?  Must be the fishing.  Hard work hauling in those nets.  I haven't had abs like those since I was 33.

Probably not the response the mysterious visitors wanted.  I wish they were here so I could discuss "Brad Pitt Jesus" with them.  He's much sexier than he was before his make-over.

Maybe next time.  I always think of the best thing to say hours, even days, later anyway.

One of the things I love most about the new Cosmos, is how it reminds us of all the other people who suffered and/or died for humanity, but to bring about tangible changes.

Like Giordano Bruno, the monk who dared to read science books, got kicked out of the monastery for doing so, then was mocked by society, and imprisoned for 8 years by the Inquisition. His crime? He was a theist, but believed that the universe was infinite, with other planets and suns, and possibly, life.

He was burned at the stake in 1600, and while burning, still managed to express his thoughts. He mustered the strength to push away a cross being held to his face. He never recanted his beliefs.

The show also brings to light the scientists who had to fight Big Corporate and/or Gov't to get laws enacted to protect people from dangerous chemicals and such.

SO sick of Jesus being portrayed as "The One." And a hipster model at that. Countless others had to suffer crucifixion, including during the Holocaust, and I doubt anybody looked good in the process.

Years ago I went on a dinner date to Shelly Manne's jazz place just off Hollywood Blvd.  A street preacher was ranting at a skimpy crowd, and all of a sudden he got right in my face and yelled, "JESUS DIED FOR YOU!!!" I muttered that I never asked him to; that the whole concept of "taking the rap" for people who didn't even exist yet was obscene.  (I was still a semi-believer then...that's how long ago it was.)

My thoroughly indoctrinated Catholic date was appalled...at ME! 

Daniel, this has to go on Twitter and Facebook; too good to not share it. You want to do the honors? 

Joan, I am not on twitter or facebook, but feel free to post if you wish!

Wow....  Jesus  in these  photos  looks  really ripped......He could be a model for GQ magazine....What Gives? Not to mention  the trendy  haircut and  trimmed  beard.....I wonder  if his  bio   gets  updated  too?

Definitely "metrosexual" in these pictures.

I've forgotten what "metrosexual" is supposed to mean, but he certainly doesn't look like a Jew from the age of Tiberius and Pontius Pilate.

I am SO tempted to print that picture and show it to my JW sister, but she has a hair-trigger temper, and weighs at least 100 lbs more than I do.  (She's also not totally sane...)
