      The scientists involved in the Oxyrhynchus scans that have been the
      subject of recent posts have issued this correction of the reporting
      that was made about them:
      http://www.csntm.org/Downloads/Retraction.pdf
      (via Steven Carlson, via Dan Wallace)
      It turns out that they have not made any new discoveries related to
      the ending of Mark, nor are they working with any mss that have any of
      Mark 16.
      Furthermore, for a period of time up until now there was no
      information about their research other than a claim made by a student
      reporter (or any other kind of reporter) that was not backed up by a
      specific quotation from the scientists. This retraction should be a
      reminder that that level of evidence should not have been appealed to
      for text critical debates, much less as support for such radical ideas
      as the longer ending of Mark only beginning to emerge in the 4th
      century (something hardly any reputable textual critic would claim).
