allow me. *ahem*...the Voynich manu was named after the man who found and bought it from a monastery in Spain. It is quite old and depicts crude drawings of plants as well of naked women and other weird crap. Some believe it to be the manu described in the stories of the alchemist Edward Kelly , the one he never was able to translate.

Many, many men have tried over the years to decode the manu. some have literally gone insane trying, but they all were unsuccessful. the language and text is unknown. Entire bodies of codebreakers and cryptology students have tried and failed. People are still trying to decode it to this day.

Actually it was recently "decoded." Mathematical analysis indicates that the code was probably a hoax, moreover the inks and paper types are consistent with the time period when Voynich lived and not consistent with his claim that it was an ancient artifact in his time.

This is a true ancient artifact, I beleive it holds a connection to Ireland's well known Book of Kells.

If this is real, I have this to say, insanity is as old as human kind, and in the rare occurence insanity and genius can be one in the same.

the plants that are drawn do not exist (anymore) and teh naked women are jsut weird. this is highly thought of to be a fake. my guess is that this dude voynich just wanted some puyblicity and money so he came up with a weird ass language and drew some crazy pics
