Carbon dating shroud of

27 Jan

This shroud, of course, is said to be the burial cloth of Jesus Christ, and it depicts an impression of a human body which bears an uncanny resemblance to the traditional depictions of Christ in art. Its characteristics are very complex (for example the fact that they only exist on the very outer surface). The C-14 method of dating the shroud definitively showed that the cloth was made some time between 12. At the moment the shroud is the best studied archeological artefact in the world. If the shroud is indeed dated back to the first century, there is still no reason to assume that it belonged to Jesus. According to probability calculations there is a chance of 1 in 200,000,000,000 that this is NOT the shroud of Jesus. Textile The method of weaving, sowing together and the kind of fabric are very specific and match cloth from Massada (Israel, first century; Massada was destroyed in 70 AD).So the question was now: what went wrong: what went wrong with the C-14 test?Probably this: the piece of cloth used for the test was highly contaminated because it come from a part (a corner) where the cloth was held at expositions during the centuries. Minority Only a very small minority of scientists who worked with the shroud excludes the possibility that it is the shroud of Jesus. Some believe that it is really the burial shroud of Jesus.This is the second part of a four part series on the Shroud of Turin.You can read the first part, The Facts and History of the Shroud, here. Wayne Phillips (posted below) as the basis of my notes.

Only believers assume that it is the burial shroud of Jesus. especially kept broadcasting a documentary that implicated Da Vinci. ‘Fake’ is a belittling term, especially when used in a sentence like, “Believers think that the shroud is that of Jesus, scientists know that it is fake.” THis is an assumption that believers are stupid enough to believe in ‘fake things’. Science has proven that the shroud is not that of Jesus. The argument against authenticity is yet to be found. But if one takes a close look at his ‘reproduction’, the differences with the real shroud immediately become clear.

The shroud existed centuries before the birth of Da Vinci and it is not a product of an artist. But the shroud and the image were not made by ‘someone’. Last year we heard that one Garlaschelli had copied the shroud.

1976: 20th Century Science Begins Nothing happens until 1976. NASA started it all with the VP-8 Image Analyzer that they used to scan the surface of the moon or Mars, and it would tell by degradations of color to get 3D images of mountains and valleys and could tell the height of the mountains and the depths of the valleys. John Jackson, a physics professor at the United States Air Force Academy, took the 1931 negative photograph of the Shroud and put it under the VP-8, just to see what would happen. It’s the only picture in the world that has 3D information.

If you put other pictures in the VP-8, you get distorted information.

There are 14 types of pollen that only exist in Israel found on the Shroud.

There are 58 types of pollen that are only from Istanbul, France, and Turkey (where the Shroud has been) found on it.

An image was created that is still inexplicable and which can’t be copied.

Could this be related to the moment of Resurrection? Not a crucial test In all the studies there is not a single issue which undermines all other facts. From the 1989 study it was concluded that the cloth dated from the period between 12. But the conclusion caused more problems than solutions, because it is absolutely certain the shroud existed in the 7th century.
