I don't know if anyone will ever know for sure.
Just thought I would pull out a contemporary resource and see what they said. The Cambridge Companion to the Bible, Second Editio,n doesn't even mention any of the longer endings (3 isn't it?) It just ends that section on Mark like this:
"The theme of the hidden nature of the divine purpose is implied in the strange ending of Mark (16:8), where the women who have seen the young man at the tomb say nothing to anyone but are filled with astonishment, fear and trembling. Those reactions, however, are precisely the ones attributed to Daniel (Daniel 10:7-12) after God has granted him visions of the end-time and the throne of God. The very terms used here by Mark are the same as those found in one of the ancient Greek versions of Daniel..." - p.529
I did not know that.
Me neither. But those favoring an intended ending at 16:8 often rely on Mark's theme of mystery as a reason.

Yeah, some people do get caught up in the details and missing content of the Bible and miss the point, I did it myself once upon a time, but hey, each to their own right?
I'm with ya.
Nothing more distracting than them pesky details.

See Clownie,

You're not even paying attention.

If, as you claimed, your deity is pleased when Christians represent the Gospel, then surely he would be pissed at Christians, like you, destroying the brand.
Do you think that's why your deity caused all those tornadoes in the Bible belt on Christmas?

Or maybe there just weren't enough Nativity Scenes on courthouse lawns.

Or maybe your deity just can't actually do anything.

I understand it just fine.
That's why I reject it.
If you understood it, you would to.
This is why your religion fosters ignorance

Sadly, most other religious people won't get the humor at all, there must be a shortage of funny bones.

Naturally, as it is a theme.

I would also suggest that the Markan community was a Pauline sect who weren't that fond of the disciples' followers. So leaving them out could have been an intentional act.

You're still deluding yourself, Clownie. You don't get to pick and choose the Gospel.

Remember Matthew 7:21, Christian:

"Not everyone who says to me,'Lord, Lord,' will enter the kingdom of heaven, but only he who does the will of my Father who is in heaven."

Bible says you're f*cked.
