[quote=Liberian]Umm … explanations, please?
I know the radiocarbon dating tests showed that it dated from the Middle Ages, but (1) any individual radiocarbon test can be mistaken and (2) a little medieval mold on a first-century fiber gives a radiocarbon date from the Middle Ages.
Examinations of the pollen embedded in the Shroud show that it comes from the Middle East. The image is burned into the fibers, not painted on. Modern science cannot explain, and modern technology cannot duplicate, the process by which the image was generated. Medieval Europe is widely regarded as the low point of science and technology; to say that they could create such a good forgery is laughable.
I’m willing to hear any evidence that the Shroud was created in the Middle Ages, but it had better be good.
If I remember Shroud history correctly, this idea of the Middle ages deals with a segment(s???) that some well meaning nuns tried to repair the Shroud after the Church in it caught on fire. Anyone else kow something about this fire??? Thanks and God Bless.
