Cheesehead_Dave: ParaHandy: Invisible sky fairy is still non-existent. Nothing to see here people, move along.

Perhaps, but technology-wise, it's still pretty cool what they've been able to do with some of the seemingly illegible sections of a document that's been buried away for 2000+ years.


Indeed.

Hoping for something that will cause a bit of entertaining infighting amongst the religious oligarchy, such as a description of Jesus' wedding to Mary Magdalene.

LesterB: Skwrl: jso2897: Greywar: Im looking forward to seeing whats here. I suspect a lot of people are, as these represent a huge amount of information from 2000 years ago. And I expect some of it to be controversial at some point.

"Information"?

They've been available in print form for decades. From what I understand, the new twist on them is that they're now available on-line, and the image quality will be better.

I may have posted this before, but they've been on-line in some form for nearly 20 years now. And my bookmark from the 90s still works: Outline of Objects and Topics in Scrolls from the Dead Sea

so why can't God come down again and just tell us everything again and have us write it down again?

We need to send people out to look for bushes on fire.

Mmm..firebush.

I sure hope you're not going to be holding you breath for that.

Have you read the bible? I have, and the tortured logic believers will use to cling to their contradictory and horrible mythology is astounding. They're essentially worshipping a pretty seriously evil deity, but will tell you YOU'RE the evil one for having the audacity to not believe in any old myth your parents hand you from a dusty old book written in a much more barbaric age. You know the old saying - "You can't reason some one out of a position they didn't reason themselves in to."

I'm just glad that now that information is more free and available then ever that the various churchs' teachings can no longer go unchallenged. As time goes on people are seeing how plain silly these ancient myths really are, and it shows in the increasing secularity of the population, particularly among the young. It gives me hope for future generations.

The same reason Zeus, Odin and Ra can't.

They're all too busy forcing themselves on comely virgins getting laid.

I saw a documentary recently on the Scrolls. The night the shepherd brought them home his Mom used some of them to make a fire to cook supper. And you're still mad your Mom threw out your comic books. Moms have never changed.

"We took the pictures over there with all the colors, different light length, then we're getting all the exposures on the screen, and we're combining them all into one multispectral image. And now secret writings are going to be revealed with the infrared image."
Listen up, you primitive screwheads: Thou shalt not kill. What part don't you get? Oy, vey.
