NazarethGate: Quack Archeology, Holy Hoaxes, and the Invented Town of Jesus

Within the fantasy of Nazareth (2008), René Salm confirmed that Nazareth didn't exist while Jesus and the Holy family members must have been dwelling there. He estimated that "evidence" will be "discovered" to teach that he used to be incorrect.

My belief is that the bond would certainly not have been so strong had not some sacred symbol of something more profound than this feeble mortality of ours become attached to it, and when people abandoned it and were keen to dissolve it, it remained unshaken to punish them; for the marriage-alliance is not rescinded by the divorce which comes between them, and so they remain wedded to each other even when separated; and they commit adultery with those to whom they are attached even after their divorce, whether the wife associates with a man, or the husband with a woman.
