    The Voynich manuscript has puzzled cryptographers for a century. It’s hand-written in a writing system that's yet to be deciphered. Now a facsimile of the book is being published, to get to the bottom of the mystery.

@Yesmister Noawmenace The fact that their nonsense has been available for years and NOBODY has found it worthy of study is proof enough, unless you are thick as a plank as you seem to be. What I find funny is that instead of you yourself showing me why you believe the Ardics are worthy of the time of day you simply attack my position. This clearly indicates to me that you have nothing.

@palimpsestransparent "serious journals have reviewed" Source on that? Links, articles etc. "Proof enough" for you is clearly not proof enough for me. The hypocrisy of someone who has done nothing but throw around ad hominem attacks and straw man arguments talking about "scholarliness" is amusing.

@Yesmister Noawmenace I already stated that serious journals have reviewed and will not consider their "findings" as worthy at all, to the point that they are not wasting their time with them. No other scholar even mentions this nonsense. This is proof enough for me. What is your proof beyond lapping up the Ardic family's OWN statements regarding all these wonderful "discoveries" they have made? Is your only source Youtube, specifically the Ardic family's youtube channel? Is that your level of scholarliness?

If i was paid, i might be able to decode it if anything is earthly made. When i was younger i used to code text messages easy, i just have to tell the destiny coding structure and was easy as that, but for others that text meant nothing and rubbish. I send and receive letters to my girlfriend from prison, and others thought that is just kind of nice underline or border paintings.

That is practically impossible It hs all the characteristics of a language and it even follows Zips law even though it predates that concept. It's most likely (in my opinion) that it's the sole surviving document of a culture long since forgotten.

We can carbon date the paper but that doesn’t necessarily mean it was made when the paper was made. But we do know it was after the paper was made lol

@Yesmister Noawmenace You are simply recounting the Ardic family's version of events. Can you point me to any independent source that recounts these events? Or any independent source that gives any type of creditiblity to their "translations" of the text? I don't think anybody is "gatekeeping" anything. The multiple scholars involved in cracking the manuscript are many and varied and all are indpendent, but you cannot expect scholares to give away time to all these hundreds of bogus theories from amateurs. And you cannot expect a serious academic journal to waste time having to justify why it is not even going to consider publishing a collection of amateur musings.

@palimpsestransparent Ardic family tried to publish it in a well-known linguistics journal, it got rejected, then they asked the peer-reviewers if their rejection correspondence can be shared in public with their name and the reviewers rejected that too. 2 reviewers who don't want their names and their reasoning for academic rejection to be known in public, I wouldn't trust such a peer-review. They are probably trying to gatekeep this to their own profession.

Probably not a lot, but it would be a nice thing to have if you are rich. I suppose it could help you get in the mind of the author. Obviously it can't be a perfect facsimile as they would have to have used 15th vellum amongst other things like it looking the same under multispectral imagining.
