This website focuses on the latest dating challenges of the Shroud of Turin. Although most Christians consider the Shroud to be the genuine burial cloth of Jesus, the results of the c carbon dating has been puzzling. Firm believers in the authenticity of the Shroud were confident of a serious dating error or incredible oversight in the c dating process. We dedicate this website to the remembrance Brendan Whiting, who's book "The Shroud Story" introduced the world to the most powerful evidence that the Shroud c data dating the Shroud in the 14th Century was invalid. Breaking News : Brendan Whiting's conclusions were correct!
Is It a Fake? DNA Testing Deepens Mystery of Shroud of Turin
New test dates Shroud of Turin to era of Christ
The Turin Shroud is a fake. In the latest, but almost certainly not final instalment, they have used modern forensic techniques to show that apparent blood spatters on the shroud could only have been produced by someone moving to adopt different poses — rather than lying still, in the manner of a dead and yet to be resurrected Messiah. Forensic scientist Dr Matteo Borrini of Liverpool John Moores University and Luigi Garlaschelli of the University of Pavia used a living volunteer and real and synthetic blood to try to simulate possible ways that the apparent bloodstains could have got onto the shroud. This could be consistent with someone who had been crucified with their arms held in a Y shape. Unfortunately for shroud believers, however, the forearm blood stains would require the dead body to have been wrapped in the shroud with their arms in a different position — held almost vertically above their head, rather than at an angle of 45 degrees. The researchers, whose findings have been published in the J ournal of Forensic Sciences , formed the opinion that the supposed blood spatters seem to have fallen vertically and almost randomly from someone who might well have been standing over the cloth, rather than lying in it.

February 11, They believe that neutron radiation caused by an earthquake could have induced the image of a crucified man — which many people believe to be that of Jesus — onto the length of linen cloth, and caused carbon dating done on it in to be wrong. The Shroud has attracted widespread interest ever since Secondo Pia took the first photograph of it in about whether it is Jesus' purported burial cloth, how old it might be, and how the image was created. According to radiocarbon dating done in , the cloth was only years old at the time. Other researchers have since suggested that the shroud is much older and that the dating process was incorrect because of neutron radiation — a process which is the result of nuclear fusion or nuclear fission during which free neutrons are released from atoms — and its interaction with the nuclei of other atoms to form new carbon isotopes.
The Shroud of Turin is a linen wrapping cloth that appears to possess the image of Jesus Christ. Some people believe this to be the cloth that he was wrapped in following his crucifixion. In , several groups of scientists were allowed samples of the shroud to subject these samples to 14 C dating.
