I was thinking about the Jesus tomb in Srinigar and how I can't assess whether it's a fake or not because I don't know how Srinigar works.

People in Kashmir have oral traditions about how Jesus came to their country. OK. In the west if you test an oral tradition to destruction you find- as often as not- that it actually goes back about fifty years. Tops.

But maybe in Srinigar it's different.

The mystic east and all that.

If the tomb were in Rennes le Chateau or even Jerusalem I'd be able to get a handle on it.

But Srinigar is outside my experience. It's not in my 'hood.

I know what a conman sounds like- but only if he's wearing a business suit or a Roman collar. Put him in one of those Islamic robey things and I'm kerfuffled.
