In the movie they had a picture drawn up of a woman even though DNA had not confirmed it was a woman
They certainly didn't. And I asked that question of Burgess and Barnett directly in a Q&A and they side-stepped it completely with a statement about the reputation of the lab. The lab's reputation was not in question - the full results of the analysis were in question and were not revealed.
Why the major push for Magdalene? She was the connection to Rennes Chateau
"She" was presented as the connection between the hagiographies and the HBHG/DaVC claims.
just finding a body in a cave would not be a big deal but if it was Magdalene
that was a sure fire money maker and attention getter
It sure was...
It was only the hands that connected the body to Magdalene
so did Ben manipulate the hands on the body? Probably
that was the only connection even though Cocteau also had his hands like that before burial
That manipulation was less inspired by Cocteau than by Starbird, who considers folded hands with interlaced fingers to refer specifically to Magdalene and the underground movement to "rehabilitate" her.
if the body is real ...where did he get it and if he made it then he manipulated the hands
He said it was the body of someone who died in 1957. From the looks of it (no visible signs of preservation), it wasn't something that was being kept around for medical experiments. I would imagine it came out of its final resting place.
So Tim you think the connection was Starbird?
When it was the "Priory of Sion" that was also in the movie such as Haywood and Sandri
and Cocteau was supposed Grandmaster of the Priory
was buried with those hands
if that is Cocteau's body that would be a real freak out moment or if that is a Priory's body
I'm hoping its just a fake ...I'm rooting for Vam's idea
The hands were on the Magdalene where Corbu pointed on the altar
the hands are connected to Cocteau
and I found the same hands popping up in other locations
I found the hand in catholic religious saints and at Our Lady of Knock
and I found a possible one in a illuminated manuscript...
