    I haven't heard about it, but what about them Dead Sea Scrolls that were found years ago? Since I haven't seen them yet, I can't help wonder if it's even true that such scrolls were found. Why are they not out there for the public, i.e. IN PRINT...for all to read? I'll believe everything when I see it.

    Yeah, me too. I need to see things in order to believe it.

    That would be exciting if it were true. If it could be dated back to the first century and they don't contain the name Jehovah, that would put a real kink into the Society's teaching.

    The last I heard of any scrolls being found were in 2005. It was from Leviticus, and written on animal skins. Haven't heard anything lately.

    It sounds like more sensationalist made up news to create a lot of excitement and publicity. Some people can't get over this temptation.

    Ok, that's cool, but why are they not put in print yet, for all to read, IF they are in fact inspired words of God? Was that not revealed or did nobody care to ask?

    MORTON 4'2m?f Dubious new bible scrolls found in a salt mine

    You may have read about the recent discovery of a new set of
    scripture scrolls which rocked the archaeological world. Because
    they were found in an abandoned salt mine, these scrolls came to
    be called the Book of Morton. Of course, we all know that a lot
    of details in the lives of Biblical Characters never made it to
    the pages of the Bible. Fortunately, the Book of Morton fills in
    some of these blanks with some exact quotations of some famous
    Biblical characters in the first section of the Book of Morton
    called FAMOUS LAST WORDS.

    Here are the famous last words of...

    Lot's wife -- Okay, so there's a little sin in Sodom and Gomorrah,
    but what's the worst that could happen?

    The famous last words of...

    Noah -- Sure, Lord, if the weather's nice, I'll take a cruise for
    a couple days.

    The last words of...

    Samson -- Just take a little off the side.

    Abraham -- Just take a little off the side.

    Jacob -- Okay, Lord, I'll wrestle. But just one round.

    Jacob's youngest son, Joseph -- Boys, did you ever wonder what
    life would like without me?

    Moses -- Aaron, if I'm not down from the mountain in a couple
    hours, get them busy building something nice with the gold.

    Joshua -- Fellas, a brass section like that, our next gig will
    bring the house down.

    Goliath -- Okay, so the kid sings and dances, what else can he
    do?

    Bathsheba -- Okay, so the kid sings and dances, what else can he
    do?

    Solomon -- Sure, why not? What's another wife, more or less?

    Elijah -- Nice chariot, Lord. But why are the horses wearing
    asbestos?

    John the Baptist -- Me? What could I possibly give Herodius's
    daughter for her birthday?

    Peter's Psychiatrist -- You know, my boy, you have a problem with
    denial.

    Paul -- Damascus? A blind man could get there.

    Linda,

    Those scrolls have been in many magazines and have toured all around the country...

    They were in S.F. a while back. A family in our hall took their kids down there to see them.
