So if we burn this version will both the Muslims AND Christians go into a rage?

I heard that Allah told Muhammad to go back in time and plant those fossils so that in the future people would turn against Christianity.

It may "only" date back to the 16th century, but it could be argued that all bibles are fake. First, there are a plethora of versions of "the" Bible. There are questions of authorship, sequencing, and time gaps. Unless, this document was churned out two years ago in the back of a Grad Students hovel, I think it is still interesting.

I'm the sort of person who loves the Passages exhibit. I kind of wish I could go back and see it again, but it's expensive and I'd have no one to go with. It's not really fun to go to exhibits alone.

The Quran mentions Jesus twenty-five times, more often, by name, than Muhammad.

Well, this ought to throw gas on the fire of the religious nuts and conspiracy theorists.

BTW. The Bible was edited centuries ago to weed out a lot of crackpot sections written by nutcases -- and to possibly remove the text written by the only female disciple, Mary Magdaline. (Big anti-feminists back then.) That doesn't mean they managed to get them all.

Anyhow, it ought to be interesting.

A photocopy of a single page from the handwritten ancient manuscript is thought to be worth £1.5million.

FTA: In line with Islamic belief, the Gospel treats Jesus as a human being and not a God.

I suspect that Christians treat Muhammad as a human being and not a God.

Sounds like they both got something right.

Isn't that a terrifying statement.

"There she lusted after her lovers, whose genitals were like those of donkeys and whose emission was like that of horses." - Ezekiel 23:20

I wonder what didn't make the cut.

Yeah it would, they look like two halved canon balls glued to a broomstick. It doesn't look like there's enough flexibility in them to do the motorboat properly...



On topic - probably a recent forgery. The weirder books that were excluded from the bible are certainly interesting, the book of Enoch is pretty mental and entertaining, and this is certainly an interesting artefact. However it also seems a pretty obvious attempt to subvert Christianity into Islam. I wonder if it worked on many people?

Key element here - given this is the Mail - is 'thought'. That's journalist speak for " I thought this up whilst taking a dump to pad out a flimsy article".

Steal the book, then photocopy all pages. Even easier, get to the book, open randomly, use camscanner, save as pdf, auction off. You are literally printing money at that point.

/looking at ticket prices now

Looked at the picture of it.
Bwah ha ha ha ha .

Okay, it's a fake.

It's not even a good fake.

What happened is some people familiar with middle eastern mentality got together and said "How can we make this fake appeal to the 14th century mindset that so many extremist muslims seem to exhibit?" And then said... "I got it. let's make it be LETTERED IN GOLD!!!! Because everyone knows that every holy book that's really real was LETTERED IN GOLD!!!! I mean if it wasn't... it surely couldn't be really real"

Oh and while they were at it... they made sure that this 1500 year old book was still perfectly bound... with no pages having disintegrated over time like... you know... the dead sea scrolls did... you know actual _real_ documents. Because every 14th century screwhead KNOWS that all real holy works from 1500 years ago stay perfectly intact... because no bugs or bacteria would DARE to damage such a holy work.

Good lord.

All you have to do is look at the piece of garbage to see it's fake. But of course, there will always be idiots out there that will ignore the glaring obviousness of the fakery involved here just to keep on believing in their ludicrous beliefs.
 
2012-02-27 12:29:21 PM  
Next you're going to tell me that the Gospel of Matthew was written with references to the predicted Destruction of the Second Temple after the fact.
 
2012-02-27 12:29:43 PM  
Fortunately this Pope has never been associated with any organisation known to burn books. It should be fine.

I watched Eddie Griffin's stand up special "You Can Tell 'Em I Said It" this weekend. He had a routine about religion that was pretty spot-on...

"Christians think Jesus is the messenger, Muslims think Muhammed is the messenger... I say, 'Who gives a fark who the messenger is. Did you get the message?'"
 
2012-02-27 12:30:53 PM  
That is obviously fake. I have a copy of the Bible and it's clearly written in English.
 
2012-02-27 12:31:26 PM  
a bit odd its in aramaic and not greek, what with that fancy ink and all
