I found this article rather interesting but not because it talks about the age of the bible. What I found most fascinating was the revelation (to some) that:
… the absolute oldest scrap of Christian writing that has been recovered to date is a fragment of the Gospel of John, written around 125 CE.
The writer goes on to add:
To be clear, this is indeed a “scrap” which is barely as big as a credit card, with text on the front and back.
A scrap. Barely as big as a credit card. Written nearly 100 years after the death of Yeshua.
Yet there are innumerable believers who are certain the scriptures in existence today are the bona fide reports of the life and death of their “Jesus.” Further, they are certain (because their leaders told them so) that the writers were eyewitnesses and wrote down the truth, the whole truth, and nothing but the truth. And that every word in their holy book is based on irreputable fact.
Wow. It never ceases to amaze me how some people will believe anything that someone tells them and never bother to investigate for themselves. For example, care to take a guess on how many Christians will ever read the referenced article?
