Codex Sinaiticus to be released on-line
Hey, this is a cool one: the oldest known Bible, the Codex Sinaiticus, is being released on-line.
Interestingly enough, it differs somewhat from the modern Bibles:
The Gospel of Mark ends abruptly after Jesus' disciples discover his empty tomb, for example. Mark's last line has them leaving in fear.
"It cuts out the post-resurrection stories," said Juan Garces, curator of the Codex Sinaiticus Project. "That's a very odd way of ending a Gospel."
The entire thing, including transcription and translation, will be on-line in about a year.
"Yes, I seriously believe that consciousness is a product of a natural process. I find that the neuroscientists, psychologists, and philosophers who proceed from that premise are the ones who are actually making useful contributions to our understanding of the mind." - PZ Myers
