Re: YOU ARE GOING TO HATE ME

Hi Mike: Well of course that is really interesting, and I can't imagine anyone "hating" you if you are correct. I suppose you mean "others who have their own theories of translation"? But most would be very happy to see success... at least I know I would. But forgive my skepticism. We have all seen ...

Re: There could be several copies of the Voynich Manuscript

Is there any evidence of this or just speculation? I was going to ask the same thing, actually. There have not been found, nor described, any trace of anything remotely similar to the Voynich manuscript for all of history. If there were these many copies, as claimed, surely there would be some evid...

New Post: "I Do Listen to the Experts. Do YOU?"

From a couple of weeks ago, actually: https://proto57.wordpress.com/2024/03/17/i-do-listen-to-the-experts-do-you/ And two interesting discussions were sparked on the Voynich Ninjas by this, with pages and pages of comments. Here is the first thread, started by me: https://www.voynich.ninja/thread-42...

Master, Interactive Botanical Identification Site

"The Voynich Garden" is a marvelous new site which lists all of the plants of the manuscript, along with every known tentative identification of those plants. Well it is a work in progress, with many identifications already in place, but many more to come. https://thevoynichgarden.cryptobotany.org/h...

Re: Kim Del Castillo

Welcome to the forum, Kim. And you point out many important questions about the Voynich. And I think we all share the hope that we will learn what it is all about, someday.

New Blog Post: The Birth of (yet another) New Myth

Most of what people think they know about the Voynich is actually based on unfounded opinions, faulty observations, and failed investigations... all of which are spun into an image of of Voynich that does not actually exist. In my humble (and increasingly astounded and frustrated) opinion. Here a re...

Re: Analysis of words and their places within the document

I find this really interesting, AquilaPausaLoquitur. Of course we don't know what it means, but finding any patterns in the Voynich text is potentially valuable to many investigators, for many possible reasons. IMHO.

New Blog Post: No Expert "Got it Right"

I had written on this subject in another thread, but I now wrote it up as a blog post:
