    It is the world's most mysterious manuscript. A book, written by an unknown author, illustrated with pictures that are as bizarre as they are puzzling -- and written in a language that even the best cryptographers have been unable to decode. No wonder that this script even has a part in Dan Brown's latest bestseller "The Lost Symbol".

    Just thought of this...could be a reach, but what if the book was created after the person had suffered a severe head injury that confuddled the words and altered the person's vision. The person journalled what they had seen and learned since the injury. Which makes me think that someone who has suffered a similar injury might be able to give us insight on what it could mean. Just a random thought.

    Drawings are protecting the coded language of Voynich Manuscript. Everyone who studies it gets trapped in elaborate drawings of plants, constellation and naked woman. If it is what I think it is, its author is an incredible genius. Out of context drawings are the charm protecting the code!!!

    Whatever it's a history book. They burned her up in nuclear waste and did experiments on her until she was able to escape and travel way back in time. She was researching treatments to relieve her post traumatic stressdisorder.

    I am smart...super smart. It's the work of a young student. It doesn't make sense, because it student doodles when he was bored. Wise up.

    It's written on parchment from that period, that does not mean it was written in that period, it means the parchment was from that time, not the text???

    It originates from the time of Atlantis. Their science was based on psychedelics and zodiac. Trouble is we don't have the concepts to translate the words of the manuscript. Its now a lost lineage. But good luck! Haha

    I find many diagrams resembling plants/flowers found in India. They may be found elsewhere also in same climatic conditions. Can't say anything about the script.

    The manuscript has not been decoded because it is written in the language of one of our fathers that came from the stars. It’s contents describe the biological ingredients that were used to make human beings. It was copied from a much older manuscript in order to preserve that knowledge. That is the reason for its existence. I do not understand why we humans always need to be either over simplistic, or overly complex.

    I kind of looks like an old-school grimoire that had to be written in code to avoid the church calling out which craft. I wouldn't doubt it either.

    The dating machine dated the paper to the 15th century not to when the book was actually written. The book could have been written in the 16th century on paper made in the 15th century so it could be anyone who wrote the book.
