i just threw up in my mouth: on david elkington and the lead codices

David Elkington

Jennifer and David Elkington.

this just made me throw up in my mouth. seriously, i have to go brush my teeth now.

according to an article entitled “revelations of our own indiana jones” in the this is gloucestershire website:

THE Five Valleys’ real-life Indiana Jones has made a startling discovery which could unlock the earliest secrets of Christianity.

Historian David Elkington spent two years trying to preserve the 2,000-year-old metal books and dodging death threats in the Holy Land in an adventure to rival the fictional Raiders of the Lost Arc movie hero.

really? indiana jones? and i love how the author misspelled “ark.” really? indiana jones lost his arc welder? perhaps it should be “nikola tesla and the lost arc.” i don’t know who makes england prouder, this article’s author or elkington?

“We were making our way through the valley when we heard the sound of fire,” said David. The scrub next to their 4X4 had been set alight.

He added: “It was extremely fierce. Someone was angry that we’d got too close to the site.”

yes, because the best way to scare someone away from your own land/cave is to set fire to your own property. exactly.

David is hopeful that the books will soon be in the care of the Jordanian government, allowing further study.

The couple will publish their account of the battle to unlock the codices’ secrets in the book The Divine Revelation.

of course you are.

the lead codices debacle has been a publicity stunt from the outset. good grief people!

the least the gloucestershire paper could have done is wait until after the rapture this saturday….

  1. I made sure to leave a comment there linking back to the article on B&I. Hopefully the more sensible readers of this “report” will check out that link as well.

  2. Thankyou,
    a ‘ real’ experts take on this regurgitated silly silly nonsense.

  3. That’s it; we’re moving out of Gloucestershire. I can’t live in the same county that promotes this sort of [insert appropriate term].

  4. And I presume that illustrates the genius of local newspapers – perhaps the Citizen?

  5. Sad thing is, simpletons will believe that shit, just like they believed Noah’s ark was found, Sodom and Gomorrah were found and Paul was a good guy. LMAO!

  6. ““We were making our way through the valley when we heard the sound of fire,” said David. The scrub next to their 4X4 had been set alight.”

    Perhaps by their 4×4?
