I know you all are going to have a field day with the 'Prophet of God' inclusion but none the less this is an interesting claim to say the least. I
keep a very open mind myself in such realms.
Written in "alien" characters, illustrated with sketches, and dating back hundreds of years, the Voynich Manuscript has puzzled cryptographers,
historians and bibliophiles for centuries.
And now the mystery has finally come to an end, according to a businessman from Finland named Viekko Latvala, a self described "prophet of god," who
says he has decoded the book and unlocked the secrets of the world's most mysterious manuscript.
Latvala's business associate, Ari Ketola told FoxNews.com the meaning of the crazy characters he d escribed as "sonic waves and vocal syllables."
"The book is a life work and scientific publication of medicine that would be still useful today," Ketola said. "The writer was a scientist of
plants, pharmacy, astrology and astronomy. It contains ... prophesy for some decades and hundreds of years ahead from the time it was created."
In other words, the Voynich Manuscript -- which is currently held by Yale University's Beincke Rare Book and Manuscript Library in New Haven, Conn.
-- is an herbological tome, something the writer used to keep track of plants and their uses for either scientific or medical purposes. And a
Latvala provided the following translation of plant 16152, which he said can be found today in Ethiopia:
"The name of the flower is Heart of Fire.
It makes the skin beautiful when made as an ointment.
The oil is pressed from the buds.
This ointment is used for the wrinkles.
Is suitable for the kidneys and the head, as the flower prevents inflammations, is antibiotic.
Plant is 10 centimeters by its height.
It grows on hot and dry slants.
The plant is bright green by its color."
So how could Latvala decode a manuscript that still dumbfounds the world's top cryptographers? It's simple. You just have to have a direct line to
"Mr. Latvala said that no one 'normal human' can decode it, because there is no code or method to read this text, it's a channel language of
prophecy," Ketola told FoxNews.com. "This type of persons are most rare to exist, yet they have always been on face of the Earth through millenniums
up to today ... and Mr Veikko Latvala has had this gift of mercy last 20 years."
Several top cryptographers contacted by FoxNews.com declined to comment on Latvala's claim, willing neither to validate his interpretation nor offer a
counter explanation for the strange book. Ketola would not explained his methodology, but offered some insight into the weird characters.
The Voynich Manuscript is an enigma that no three letter agency has been able to crack. It has been thought to have been scribed by the hand of
Leonardo da Vinci but was carbon dated to more than a century before da Vinci was even a twinkle in his fathers eye. You can see the article on the
carbon dating here
I am not sure how much I put into carbon dating though. There is an NSA document (.pdf app) located
that according to The National Security
Agency states the manuscript has been traced to Roger Bacon
(c. 1214-1294) . If your not
comfortable with a direct link to open the NSA document here are the search results from the NSA page and you can open them manually.

The manuscript has gone through some very interesting hands through the ages. Popes, Kings, Alchemist, Astronomers. It is now located in the Yale
University Beinecke Rare Book & Manuscript Library. Incidentally, Yale just released the entire Manuscript online for the first time within the last
couple of weeks and can be found here
. It was released
in full so that the general public may crack the code seeing that no one else can for nearly 800 years. (according to the NSA)
I started a thread earlier this year Voynich Manuscript - Diary Of An Alien Or A Madman? 100
Years Older Than First Thought.
where we did much research on our own. You might check it out, but be warned research in this realm might take
you to some strange places!!
So did the 'Prophet of God' crack it?
Here's your chance ATS cryptographers and code crackers, this is one important manuscript.
