"Shroud of Turin / RCC"
Dear Whodathunkit and others,
There's a possibility that there are some individuals in the
Vatican that would like to DIScredit the Shroud. It was
individuals inside the RCC that decided what corner of the
Shroud to cut for the radiocarbon dating done in 1988. It
is well known that this dating, done by 3 or 4 top notch
university labs, came up with a date from the middle ages.
Many people then wrote off the Shroud as a medieval fake.
Those of us who knew the supernatural complexities of the
Shroud, realized that something in this testing must be
flawed. Around 2005, Sue Benford and Joe Marino theorized
that the corner of the Shroud that was submitted for testing was
not the same substance as the rest of the LINEN shroud, because
of fluorescent photographs made by the STURP project.
Benford's theory stated that expert weavers from the middle ages
rewove a torn corner using an invisible mending technique.
She was ridiculed by many scientist that had studied the Shroud
AND many in the Catholic Church. Renown scientist, Ray
Rogers, said he could prove her theory wrong in ten minutes
using a few fibers from the corner that was sampled.
Instead of proving her wrong, he saw microscopic evidence that
the linen fibers had been spliced and glued to another
type of fiber. At an international conference in 2008, held at
Ohio State University, Robert Villareal from the most
prestigious Los Alamos National Lab, confirmed that the area
that was carbon dated contained COTTON. I was privileged
to be at this conference when this exciting breakthrough was
announced. If anyone wants to see the videos go to www.
shrouduniversity.com and click on the Ohio State logo. You
will see videos of many of the speakers I mentioned. While
you are there you can check out Dr. Petrus Soons, a Dutch
scientist who has found HOLOGRAPHIC information on the Shroud.
Also Avinoam Danin's report is quite remarkable. He is a
Jewish professor of botany who has found evidence that plants
only found in the Jerusalem region touched the
Shroud. He has authored an amazing book,
"Flora of the Shroud".
I am sharing this information, not to show off my knowledge of
the Shroud, but because it might help some skeptic of the
resurrection to believe in our awesome Lord Jesus Christ.
After the disciple Thomas was shown the physical evidence of
Christ's triumph over death, he exclaimed, "My Lord, and My
God!" So "whodathunk" God would also show this scientific
generation physical proof of His love for them. bc
