I guess they’re using the rest of the thorns collected by medieval relic-hoarders to built a replica of Noah’s ark in Kentucky. Oh, wait — I got the thorn mixed up with pieces from the cross.
At least this piece of paleo-nonsense involved a journalist who has grown enough of a conscience to tell us that, “while no one can doubt the item’s rich history, there is less evidence to support the claims of its provenance.” No kidding. What has the British Museum come to?
My thanks to Melania for this!
