CNN- Get Some Scholars To Help You, Please! CNN and the Newly Discovered Fragment of Romans

CNN aired a pretty interesting piece featuring the newly discovered fragment of Romans a few days back- but boy, did they bungle it.  If you watch the video and you’re paying attention, you’ll notice immediately the very moment that they show a close up of that fragment that it’s upside down!  Here’s a screenshot-

  1. What is NOT upside down with CNN?
    They just labeled Belcher’s murder/suicide “Culture of Manliness” ignoring all the witness who say that Belcher had been drinking heavily all night and had a natural penchant for violence against women.
    In a world where right side up is considered abnormal, upside down is the new normalcy!
    Unfortunately the dozens of viewers of CNN won’t be able to identify the upside down-ess of this document!

    Milton Almeida your post has very little to do with this post and is only tangentially related it should really be deleted; find a more appropriate forum for your rants.

    As for the document very interesting I’ll have to check out your blog. I do wish there was a database on all of these as it would help with dating of certain verses and other information

  4. zimmer049 the person here who can decide whether my post should be deleted or not chose to allow it to be published. it is not nice to attempt to rule in someone else’s realm. But thank you for your insight anyway. I vow to take note of it and consider it for future postings!

    Lets not let facts get in the way of the news.

    At this point we all can agree that the news is just sensationalist titillations to keep an ADHD public engaged.
