The digital Dead Sea Scrolls
For your enjoyment: the dead sea scrolls online (all in high definition)

There is some information, not the complete texts. If you like some extra literature about it, I recommend 'The Dead Sea Scrolls Deception' by Michael Baigent & Richard Leigh.

As a history nut and training historian I find this to be absolutely fascinating. Great post!

On the contrary. The information in the scrolls reveals more inconsistencies with other scriptures. That's why they were kept hidden during translations for a long time. same goes for alot of documents hidden deeply in the Vatican's vaults.

Nevertheless, they are of great value in the scientific search of finding out the truth behind Jesus and the occurences in his time. Remember, we atheists don't want to hide/erase/deny Jesus and "holy" scriptures, we just don't believe what it says and wonder how these documents came into being. Using scientific methods and logic, everyone should come to that same conclusion.

I love theology as an atheist, as it's a fascinating subject on different levels: sociology, psychology, neurscience and politics being my favourites. But in the end, it's still a fairy tale unless I see some REAL proof.

The study of theology is the study of history. It is a very important aspect of human history, integral to the understanding of many incidents in history. It's the exact same as studying Greek Mythology, Mythraism, etc.

Interestingly, it's my understanding that Jesus wasn't mentioned in any of the scrolls, even though some were written as late as 68-100 CE.

Yes, but Greek Mythology is, well mythology. The word of the lord however, isn't.

On what do you base this assumption? The Bible? Make sure you argument doesn't look like this:

If you give an incoherent statement just like your previous ones, I won't bother answering.

lawl. Any proof for that assertion? I'm guessing not...

Better without God, and happier too.

JesusLovesYou69 is such a troll sounding name.

It brings the phrase "Fucking Jesus!" to a new light.
