Re: Ultimate Ascension of Isaiah thread

Ohayo GakuseiDon and all :) Just had a Jungian gold-bug moment which I thought I'd share - Around the time I caught this thread, I was also looking into the Song of Roland , (an epic poem about a battle from Charlemagne's time, but written a few centuries later, just before the first Holy Grail lite...

At least for a moment I'm sure I'm not deterring anyone, but maybe someone else who reads the thread doesn't swallow the story told herein hook, line and sinker.
You've done good work,
it doesn't look like anyone here believes any of their nonsense about colour changes.

Re: Codex Sinaiticus - the white parchment Friderico-Augustanus

Gday all, Some more thoughts on sheep genetics (hey, I'm from Oz, sheep are important to us - you know they say 'Australia rides on the sheep's back', right ? TBH they're a little awkward travelling to work on, but the good news is that they can fit 16 lanes across the Sydney harbour hyperpotamus, 2...

Re: Codex Sinaiticus - the white parchment Friderico-Augustanus

Gday all :) As you pointed out, you might easily find flora and fauna that really fits one scenario over another. Presumably you mean that the DNA of sheep/lambs may be different between the 1st century vs the 19th century, right ? So that a DNA test revealing the vellum of Sinaiticus was from the 1...

Re: Codex Sinaiticus - the white parchment Friderico-Augustanus

Gday John T and all :) Well, you got me. Turns out DNA testing much like radiocarbon dating is completely useless in determining if a document is a modern forgery or not. Now since you caught me how about telling us what method is acceptable to you? :cheeky: No worries, mistakes happen :) I'm just a...

Re: Codex Sinaiticus - the white parchment Friderico-Augustanus

Gday all, If you have a breed of animal used for the vellum that did not exist in the 4th century then you have a case for fraud. If the ink has DNA of a plant not known to the region at the time, then you have fraud. There are many variables and scenarios. Yup :) But you brought up the subject of D...

Re: Codex Sinaiticus - the white parchment Friderico-Augustanus

Gday Ben C. Smith and all :) I have no expert knowledge of this matter, but I have found a number of articles suggesting that DNA dating of parchment has been in development for at least a decade. For example: https://www.livescience.com/3300-dna-reveal-origins-medieval-manuscripts.html . I have no ...
