Thideology Research Team makes actual discovery: Case File 011

THIDEOLOGY RESEARCH TEAM HEADQUARTERS, Somewhere in the Northern Hemisphere — A spokesman for the Thideology Research Team has confirmed that the Thideology Research Team recently discovered the Dead Sea Scrolls.

DeadSeaScrolls“It’s true,” the spokesman said. “I was there when the discovery was made. One of our interns was surfing along on the internet looking for a free upgrade to his Angry Birds app when all of a sudden — BLAM — we ran headlong into the Dead Sea Scrolls. Yep, we are proud to announce to the whole world that the whole thing has been uploaded to the internet and can be viewed at http://www.deadseascrolls.org.il/home.”

The Leon Levy Dead Sea Scrolls Digital Library is, in fact, available online. Using the world’s most advanced imaging technology, the Digital Library preserves thousands of scroll fragments, including the oldest known copies of biblical texts and makes then available to the public for the first time.

When reminded about the fact that the Dead Sea Scrolls were actually discovered in a cave in Qumran in 1947 and that the Thideology Research Team could not really claim to have “discovered” the Dead Sea Scrolls, the spokesman had this to say:

“Well, sure, if you want to get picky about it.”
