Some of you may have happened to see my earlier thread, where I mentioned some nonsense about the Catholic Church my roommate was spouting at me… Well, this is just some more of that.
One thing he also said, that I haven’t bothered to look into yet, is that the Vatican is keeping some of the Dead Sea Scrolls (allegedly so they can hide them from everybody else :rolleyes: ). Every place I’ve looked so far indicate that the majority of the scrolls are kept at various sites in Israel and Jordan, so I don’t know where he gets this stuff. However I also read that a few small fragments are owned by “private collectors” so I can’t vouch for those. Not that it would really validate my roommate’s crazy conspiracy theories even if some of those were kept in the Vatican.
Mainly I was wondering if anyone else might have heard someone allege this? I’m not sure if it’s one of those things in the Da Vinci code or something equally ridiculous. Realize from the start that my roommate is an extreme leftist who also claims that Vatican City was located on some island in the Mediterranean, Jesus had 13 apostles, one of the Popes denied the Holocaust, and other assorted crazy stuff, so of course I’m not taking this seriously either. I’m just trying to see if anyone knows the source of that rumour, or has heard anyone else say it?
