17. Well, it's silliness, of course.

Even assuming that the incident in question actually occurred, which seems very unlikely, knowing where it occurred seems impossible. So, they picked a rock and commemorate an event that probably never occurred at that place.

Same thing with the church standing where Jesus was supposed to have been entombed. Nobody knows that to be the place. That's impossible. So, they pick a place and just say that's it.

It has been estimated that if all the relics of the "true cross" on which that supposed person were supposedly executed were gathered together, you could build a small house with them.

So little is true that is thought to be true that it calls into question whether any of it is even close to being true. And for all that, countless people have died. What a shame!
