Jordanian Lead Codices Probably Fake

Scott Stenwick posted some interesting research today about those lead codices that have been making the rounds. He also mentioned that there was one blogger who expressed fear that some dark Christian curse would be unleashed by breaking the seals on the book, bringing about the Eschaton seen in the Apocalypse of St. John, a.k.a. Revelations...

I was shocked, absolutely shocked.

People still believe in Revelations? Like, literally?


  1. by Jim Davila and as well as blogs by other academics have been reporting on the fact that the Codices are fake for some time now.

    As for taking things literally, well there are always some. I've had a Mars bar sitting on my desk for weeks now and it has shown no signs of helping me work, rest and play.

  2. People still believe in Revelations? Like, literally?

    You mean people other than Donald Tyson? ;-)

  3. @Ananael: I know right. The Enochian Apocalypse... lulz

  4. But the nails recently discovered are REALLY those used to crucify Jesus, right?

  5. @Karmaghna: It's a little known fact that during the Middle Ages if you could somehow collect all of the splinters of the True Cross that were in circulation you would find yourself with enough wood to build a replica of Noah's Ark.

    But those nails are totally for real! You betcha!
