This Summer, Scientists Will Reveal the Context of the Phaistos Disc

A huge scientific breakthrough thousands of years in the making is imminent this summer, with experts claiming that they will soon be able to decode the Phaistos Disc, having decrypted almost 90 percent of its symbols.

According to the International Relations Office of Crete’s Technological Educational Institute (TEI), directed by Dr. Gareth Owens, a series of linguistic analysis and epigraphic studies led to the deciphering of 90 percent of the symbols. In conjunction with Linear B, this would allow the reading of the famous Phaistos Disc after thousands of years.

Although it is the first time that analysis has advanced to this stage, only now can scientists say that the Phaistos Disc is referring to a feminine deity.

    Dr. Owens and two of his colleagues have made the same claim for several years and trot it out with clockwork regularity but without a shred of evidence. See the comment following the article

    But at least he tries.I have a great curiosity to know what all these symbols mean.It’s so symmetric strange and almost beautiful.

    Ali, if you want to know what those symbols on the Phaistos Disk mean, go to http://phaistosgame.com and see the links at the bottom of that page to my series of articles about their correct and verifiable interpretation. None of those vague hypotheses that linguists make up out of thin air!
