Found in a Bog!

Today I posted on Favorite Pastimes about the ancient book recently found in an Irish bog and the misunderstanding that sprang forth from the report.

Because everyone jumped to equate the finding with a message from God concerning current events in Israel, the real joy in the find was lost. It's amazing that something 1200 years old was preserved. Go to Favorite Pastimes under the title "Urban Legends". I'm not going to repeat it all here, but this could be a topic we could explore later: how much do we know about history and how much do we jump to erronous conclusions?
