I haven’t looked at the material in any detail (It’s a snowy spring break here in Toronto and I’m using the time to get as much dissertating in as I can.) But it exhibits none of the red flags of quackery (always a danger with anything having to do with the Voynich MS). The decoding may or may not be correct, but it appears to be serious, fact-based research.
Professor Bax explains his methodology:
I hit on the idea of identifying proper names in the text, following historic approaches which successfully deciphered Egyptian hieroglyphs and other mystery scripts, and I then used those names to work out part of the script.
And summarizes what he’s found so far:
But already my research shows conclusively that the manuscript is not a hoax, as some have claimed, and is probably a treatise on nature, perhaps in a Near Eastern or Asian language.
