In the Irish Times, Ruadhán Mac Cormaic picks up[subs req] on the article, on Israel Insider, noted by Mick previously, on the discovery of the ancient Psalter in a peat bog and the Psalm that wasn’t, as clarified by the National Museum of Ireland.. although I’d suggest that the idea that the statement issued by the director of the National Museum, Dr Patrick Wallace, came “before it all got out of hand” seriously underestimates the speed of flow of information on the internet, through blogs and elsewhere.. as well as the number of tin-foil hat wearers out there.. Still, at least the Grauniad didn’t add to the conspiracy..

Donate to keep Slugger lit!

For over 20 years, Slugger has been an independent place for debate and new ideas. We have published over 40,000 posts and over one and a half million comments on the site. Each month we have over 70,000 readers. All this we have accomplished with only volunteers we have never had any paid staff.

Slugger does not receive any funding, and we respect our readers, so we will never run intrusive ads or sponsored posts. Instead, we are reader-supported. Help us keep Slugger independent by becoming a friend of Slugger.

While we run a tight ship and no one gets paid to write, we need money to help us cover our costs.

If you like what we do, we are asking you to consider giving a monthly donation of any amount, or you can give a one-off donation. Any amount is appreciated.
