The Voynich Manuscript

I thought this was a pretty interesting article, and my only theory is this:

Since a manuscript from the 1400s would almost certainly have to have been copied at one or perhaps two or three points in its history, then the "text" or contents are likely much older than the 15th Century. If this is the case, then the text is either in a lost language or the individual or individuals who copied and transcribed the text made a colossal blunder of it by rendering the original text into gibberish.

Simply by randomly transposing a few letters due to a poor translation or due to some sort of confusion, the entire text could have been rendered useless. That's my theory.

What you may have here is simply a botched job of copying an original manuscript and nothing more than that.
