    "Calls its origins into question" doesn't mean what it sounds.

    The thing with ancient texts is that there is no guarantee as to its authenticity as historical as opposed to mythological.

    Yeah and the only way to find out is to date the parchment if it's possible to see if it's in the right time frame from where the mythology had started.

    As far as the veracity is concerned, strictly concerning the narratives, I figure if it's not happening now, it certainly didn't happen then either.

    The Daily Mail isn't exactly known for being the greatest of sources in my opinion given it's tabloid like nature. It's always been pretty sensational and at times had dubious or false articles. Never even heard of the second one.
