The Voynich Manuscript Decoded?
All attempts over the past century to decode this mysterious manuscript have met with failure. This is probably due to the initial error made by Voynich and his followers attributing the authorship of the manuscript to Roger Bacon, the 13th century British scientist, monk and scholar. As I showed in a previous paper on my Website, The Voynich Manuscript, was the author left handed?, Roger Bacon could not have written this manuscript and I suggested that a young (around 8 to 10 years old) Leonardo da Vinci was a likely author. Using this premise I proceeded to consider what would be required to decode this manuscript and reached the following conclusions:
Determine the language used in writing the manuscript
Correlate the Voynich alphabet with the modern English alphabet
Decipher the code
And we’re off, starting with a useless and unsupported assumption!
Place your bets!
