Earliest Manuscript of Mark’s Gospel Found…on Facebook?! February 19, 2012

What, if anything, does this have to do with the supposedly first-century manuscript fragment of the Gospel of Mark that Dan Wallace has been talking about?

I have no idea, as yet, because when something appears on Facebook, like an ossuary appearing on the antiquities market, lots of questions are left as yet unanswered.
