    Herculaneum is buried for 2000 years, and scrolls are found charred among the ruins. Is it evolutionists or atheists who figure out how to unroll and read them? Watch this YouTube presentation the reality might just surprise you!

    Who the hell cares if it was atheists, evolutionists, deists, Christians, Muslims, Martians or blue smurfs who figured out how to unroll and read them?

    Because it demonstrates that religious people can be more savvy than secular scientists who claim to know it all. So one shouldn't underestimate the value of a religious theory simply because secular scientists claim to have it right... They don't always know what they are talking about.

    Fallacy.

    Being religious does not give one any special ability to 'unroll' shit. That would be just something a religious person would come up with, a form of 'transitive magic', where belief in one particular thing or another affects one's ability to 'unroll' something or do some other physical act.

    This thread is so ludicrous as to not be worth any more time.

    There would seem to be more stupidity on their side. Oh wait, let's soak it in mercury.

    Perhaps being religious might just provide supernatural support for one's task. At the very least it would seem that not only did they exert patience and perhaps gained extra insight, they treated the objects as irreplaceable. Something all the secular scientists involved seemed to ignore.It also seemed odd that even after it was demonstrated that a higher resolution was possible there were still some technicians using microscopes and not willing to move on... I guess it's hard to accept that someone not of their group might have a better idea.
