All the “technology” required is a simple box camera that initially reveals a negative photo. The “big reveal” happened in 1898 and no subsequent test has refuted it. The 1978 STURP examination was the most intensive investigation of a religious relic ever undertaken. If the Image on the Shroud had been the work of a human artist, STURP would have found that out.
The 1988 C-14 results are properly interpreted as the signature of an event. The 250 year variance in the raw data proves that the results do not indicate a date at all. C-14 testing is very accurate, and a 250 year variance is way too large for a sample supposedly only about 700 years old. As detailed by the Antonacci/Rucker team, the C-14 Labs combined, eliminated, and “statistically analyzed” the data in order to achieve something that the Museum could present to the public as a legitimate dating result. That presentation was really the crime of the century, and it was uncovered by the dogged persistence of a former prosecuting attorney.
For reasons previously stated an apologist for the Bahai’ Faith is desperate to hide the fact that the scientific data on the Shroud proves the miracle of the vanishing of Jesus’ corpse into another dimension.
Bahai’ theology for gaining converts is built around the postulation that this event did not really happen.
Bahai’ Faith has as one of its tenets the respect of science, and if it is proved that Jesus resurrection happened as described in the Gospels, then Bahai theology falls apart.
That is why we are so condescendingly told that we can believe that the Shroud is miraculous as long as we don’t say that this miracle is scientifically proven. What a crock!
(And we are told that we are “irrational” if we attempt to expose this insidious agenda or that our posts are “incoherent jibberish.”)
