Re: orion scroll fakes
Jim West, et alia,
I live up the road from you (Jim), and I agree with the description 200%
(But keep in mind that everybody is somebody's semi-literate bonehead.)
Try not being a Christian at all in this area where every other person
is divinely inspired (thus being unquestionable experts even on those
religions they shun, in addition to "har ejication" in general). But I
didn't come to bash....
Is it possible that the reason this "rag" had other issues about
featuring a real scroll photo? I'm just giving the benefit of a doubt.
What are the legal (copyright) issues---if any---concerning these
scrolls? Are they saving some bucks by showing the "artists conception"?
Also, if you look at some other denominational literature, you will find
every imaginable type of character or arrangement of actual characters
intended to convey (mysterious) Hebrew. What chance is there of the
typical church-guy of knowing the difference, not just here in the
woods, but anywhere?
