[UPDATE: Since I published this article on Mar 13, 2012 at 11:49am Central Daylight Time, the thejesusdiscovery.org website has removed the doctored image below. To fix the missing image, I have replaced it here with the copy of the image I downloaded form the publicly accessible "Press Kit Photos and Graphics" section. However, I have left the original URL of the removed image in the caption for reference. ]

Mark Goodacre suggests that this might reflect the strength of the arguments by Bob Cargill (some pictures included):

It appears that Dr Cargill’s paper is already making an impact.  Not long after it was posted earlier this afternoon, several of the images to which he draws attention disappeared from the Jesus Discovery Website, to be replaced with others.
