Nothing constructive to do? they could be on Fark instead of wasting time like that.

FTA: The tiny Bible was developed as part of an educational drive to increase interest in nanoscience among teenagers.

Israeli scientists haven't ever heard of tits?

/OOOOOH, LOOK! A BIBLE!

whats the point? its not the "real" bible anyway, just some chicken scratching.

(I'm trying out being a troll. SHOFAR, not so bad)

Hey did you all hear about that serious hostage situation at that school in IL near Lombard?

Sounds like a real hoot.

I bet the scientist give out hard candy whenever somebody visits the lab...

The Nanojews are probably more interested.
 
2007-12-19 05:42:17 PM
ok....

Up next, this will be a mandatory stamp on all future weaponry in the area to ensure every shot is backed by God/Allah/etc... himself.

Interesting. Now imagine, if you will, the reaction to these scientists and their work if they had claimed to do this, and then said "no, sorry, you can't see the results. But they really happened!".

Imagine the kind of person who looks at this, and thinks "OMG! That's awesome! I'm going to give them money and let them tell me what kind of underwear I should wear!".

fundies say the darndest things top 100 is down.

I was going to quote a fundie that thinks English is the true language of the bible.

You sure its the mormons who are microscopic and not just their brains?

\And they say people only make fun of Christians

Yet more proof that Woody Allen is the only one of the bunch who knows how to get a teenagers interest.

He said he now wanted to take pictures of the nano-Bible and blow it up to a seven-by-seven metre poster, which will make it "possible to read the entire bible with the naked eye".

err...why not PUT IT ON A SEVEN BY SEVEN POSTER TO BEGIN WITH, and save all the micro-trouble?

"Hebrew Bible"?


You think, after 5,000 years of history, they'd have come up with their own word for something that important to Israel.

 
2007-12-19 05:51:03 PM
I guess I'm the only one who thinks using particle beams to etch over 300,000 words onto a 0.5mm plate is pretty freakin cool, and isn't trying to turn this into one more pathetic online pissing contest.

It's Tanakh, but most non-Jews don't know the word.

Oh, I'm sure you're not the only one who is getting a kick out of this; but what's pissing everybody off is the fact that of all the things they could have written on that plate, they went with the bible.

"Pentateuch" is derived from Greek (as is "Genesis", "Deuteronomy", etc.), so I don't see how that's "their own word." Oh, and Doggie McNugget is our winner for being the first to buzz in with "Tanakh."

Probably get more interest in nano-tech if you could get it to be pertinent in some form of makeup and glitz it up into a brand that cost 20x as much as similar products.

Seriously? Seriously? If that pisses anyone off, they have serious anger issues and a very skewed sense of perspective.

Not quite. Imagine that a man in his early twenties who produces a 500+ page book he claims are translations from metal plates. Then the scientists and public asked for the source and he said, "nope sorry," but published the book and distributed it freely. As idiotic as the origins of the book may seem, there hasn't been a single credible alternative to his story (of the origins). Even if you don't believe any of the doctrine contained in the BOM, it's a pretty far stretch to believe Joseph Smith authored it.

Further than the one required for magic glasses?

I thought that if someone put the words Israel or Israeli in a headline, a beacon would shine in the sky like the bat signal alerting Tatsuma that he is needed in a thread..

It's called hypergraphia, and it's what bat-shiat insane people do... write lots and lots of truly insane stuff.

mini missionaries could use this to convert the microscopic Chinese, who are peace loving and mean no one any harm

(they are nonetheless invariably fatal to normal-sized human beings when inhaled or ingested)
