That’s Not a Fish on Jacobovici’s “Tomb of Jesus’s Disciples”: (5) The Hezbollah “Terrorist” Katyusha Rocket Launcher Theory; and (6) The Israeli “Iron Dome” Missile Defense System Theory

Two more theories on what Jacobovici’s “Jonah-fish” really is. These were submitted by avid reader of Remnant of Giants Bob Cargill, who in each case merely rotated the original image :

(5) The Hezbollah “Terrorist” Katyusha Rocket Launcher Theory:

Simcha Jacobovici: Could be a Hezbollah katyusha rocket, could be a fish, I dunno

(6) The Israeli “Iron Dome” Missile Defense System Theory:

Simcha Jacobovici: Couldn't tell a fish from an Israeli Iron Dome Missile

That’s Not a Fish on Jacobovici’s “Tomb of Jesus’s Disciples”: (4) The Roll-On Deodorant Theory

Theory no. 4: What Simcha Jacobovici alleges is a fish symbol on the tomb of Jesus’s disciples is instead what the disciples used to stay fresh all day long.

If I simply rotate the image, you can see it for yourself:

That’s Not a Fish on Jacobovici’s “Tomb of Jesus’s Disciples”: (3) The Noddy Theory

Theory no. 3: What Simcha Jacobovici alleges is a fish symbol on the tomb of Jesus’s disciples is in fact an early prototype of Noddy – perfected by children’s book author Enid Blyton.

That’s Not a Fish on Jacobovici’s “Tomb of Jesus’s Disciples”: (1) The Zeppelin Theory

Simcha Jacobovici holds what he claims may be the fossilized penis of Jesus

Simcha Jacobovici holds what he claims may be the fossilized penis of Jesus

Recently, Simcha Jacobovici claimed to have found a tomb of Jesus’ disciples. One of the main foundations for his claim was an engraving in the tomb which he claimed represented a fish with the head of Jonah sticking out of its mouth. The image of a fish was used in early Christian iconography. However, there have been no examples discovered of its use in the first century AD, when Jesus’ disciples would have died. Since Jacobovici’s announcement, anybody with any real expertise in the matter has decided that he is – once againspouting nonsense.

But the question remains: if it’s not a fish, what is it?

As it happens, I have a couple of alternative theories on the matter - each of which is substantially more likely than Jacobovici’s PAP (Pseudo-Archaeological Pareidolia).

Theory no. 1: It’s a Zeppelin. If I simply rotate the image, you can see it for yourself:
