Yeah, I think it really is Jesus’ burial shroud. I have heard/read all the arguments for a painting, but I can never get past the fact that it would be harder for it to be a fake. I mean, a:shrug: photographic negative being created in the Middle Ages?? That really makes no sense. A fake–even a pious one–made in that time frame would look like a positive image, at least.
I also…and this is going to, I predict, drive somebody crazy, but…
I find it very interesting that we have not one, but two, amazing photographs, made before there was such a thing as photography: The Shroud, & the image of Our Lady of Guadelupe…See, I feel that each one, in a way, supports the reality of the other. It is as though God decided to create a miraculous image, & to do so, using technology that we, in modern times, would be able to understand & appreciate…All this time, somebody decided to take a picture of the Shroud, & lo & behold, it’s a negative! Let scientists loose on OLG, and there’s a positive image!
Photographs, made umpty years ago, just waiting for someone to notice. Seriously cool…How much would you have loved to be in
that guy’s darkroom, when the pic he took of the Shroud showed a positive image for the 1st time in 2000 years???
