God Is As Popular As Ever

Contrary to TIME's famous 1966 cover, God is far from dead. In its first 48 hours online, Sinaiticus had 96.4 million hits. (In contrast, only 1.6 million people tried to get tickets to Michael Jackson's funeral.) Fortunately, its computer server in Leipzig has a backup host, so it hasn't yet crashed. And how is Sinaiticus handling her new fame? By starring in an upcoming U.K. television documentary.
