    Yes, because coincidence equates to " unequivocal evidence ".

    Do you know how common those names were back then?

    It would be impossible to arrive at any conclusions. Ten ossuaries were found in the Talpiot tomb with six bearing epigraphs. It was also felt that the ossuaries could have been multi-generational ... with the bones of numerous deceased from different generations mixed up in each limestone container. Three skulls were found on the floor and crushed bones found on two burial shelves which could indicate that the tomb was disturbed in antiquity.

    All of the names on the ossuaries were very common for the location and era. For instance, the Papyri Babatha 17 (120-130 CE) lists the names of a Jewish household in Maoza as Jesus, Simon, Mariame, Jacobus and Judah. These people had nothing to do with the New Testament or the Talpiot tomb. Examples like this fairly well discount any (name) uniqueness of the deceased in the Talpiot tomb.

    The ossuaries are at the Rockefeller Museum and the Israel Museum. All tomb bones were reburied according to Jewish religious law. The now empty tomb has been sealed with a concrete slab.

    No it doesn't. Just an inconvenient coincidence. Unequivocal evidence cannot ever be found to support the existence of mythological characters, you should know that.

    Lol. Do you know that you can look forever for evidence of mythological figures, and never find it.
