Concerning the ending of Mark's Gospel

Sorry, I was confusing another story I read about some old Biblical manuscripts.

Tichendorf said that he first found the Siniaticus leaves in the Monistaries trash basket, and that they were being burned in the fireplace...the monks must have not thought to highly of the document me thinks....anyone that knows will tell you, that the manuscrpit is a real mess, with many corrections and mistakes and such. The good copies were used and reused to copy more copies and thus they wore out. This one was not used because of its corruptions and eventually it found a better use by the make a fire.

For this information, just Google "Siniaticus found in the trash."
