Interesting article describes the pointlessness of altcoins and proof-of-stake approaches to cryptocoin mining.

the earliest versions of Mark stop at 16:8. It’s an awkward ending, with three women who have gone to the tomb where Jesus was laid after the Crucifixion encountering a man who tells them to let the disciples know that the resurrected Jesus will see them in Galilee. The women flee the tomb, and “neither said they any thing to any man; for they were afraid.’’

In early copies of the original Greek writings, that’s it. The 12 verses that follow in modern Bibles—Jesus appearing to Mary Magdalene and the Disciples and then ascending to Heaven—are not there.

Surely there must be some sort of debate or refutation of this fact somewhere? I cannot believe that the central tenet of Christianity - the resurrection of Jesus - was just tacked on by scribes later, that this is known to scholars, and has gone unremarked upon until Newsweek came along...

I thought this was an enjoyable article, but I would hate to introduce it to a discussion when the truth is not nearly so clear-cut as is presented. I'll have to do some more research. Does anyone have anything relevant?
