Who's buried in Paul's tomb?

Pope Benedict said to plan examination of St. Paul's Tomb

Kath.net and Die Welt's Paul Badde report

According to reliable sources, Pope Benedict XVI. has given green light for an examination of the interior of St. Paul's tomb in the Basilica San Paolo fuori le Mura. The position of the stone coffin has not been altered since the year 390. Soon, it is said, archeologists will remove a plug with which the coffin had been sealed in Antiquity. An endoscopic probe is supposed to transmit images of the content. What they will show nobody knows. This alleged decision of the Pope has to be seen in the context of the Year of St. Paul which was announced yesterday for 2008, at the vigil of the Feast of Peter and Paul.

I hope he doesn't put Geraldo Rivera in charge of this one.

I don't understand what the point of this expedition is for So we discover bones there...unless he carried an identity card, those bones could belong to anyone.

So they discover no bones there. Then what?

Gee so it's St. Paul's tomb, basically that's a no brainer.-let's give the past generations a little credit-besides wouldn't it be nice to see science re-affirming spiritual matters again?
Agreed Geraldo should stay very far away from this adventure!

I fail to see how science is going to reaffirm spiritual matters. I guess we will just have to agree to disagree on this one Mashcity.

Be sure the "survivors" have stopped breathing before you bury them!
