Radiocarbon dating shroud of turin

That led to the then Cardinal of Turin, Anastasio Alberto Ballestrero, admitting the garment was a hoax.

A research paper published in Thermochimica Acta suggests the shroud is between 1,300 and 3,000 years old.It is said to have been restored by nuns who patched the holes and stitched the shroud to a reinforcing material known as the Holland cloth."[The radiocarbon sample] has obvious painting medium, a dye and a mordant that doesn't show anywhere else," Mr Rogers explained.And even though I want to believe that it belonged to Jesus, I think it would be better if it remained a mystery.Benjamin, Pittsburgh, USA Time heals all wounds, solves all mystery, and buries all truth. This debate will only be solved after UFOs and the Kennedy assassination.However, the shroud itself is actually much older." Some now hope the Vatican will give approval for samples of the shroud to be re-tested.

But, says Mr Minor, "the church is very hesitant, very reluctant for that to be done, because they've been given so many conflicting opinions". However, I wonder why nobody considered the patch idea earlier.

Trusting that Jesus was the Son of God come to earth to take on a human body, and then crucified taking on the sins of the world, to return from the dead and then to be resurrected to heaven is enough.

God does nothing without reason or plan, and I can't fathom His leaving something confusing like this. Even if it is proven that the shroud dates to c.33AD, what does that prove? It simply proves that you have a 2000-year-old burial shroud.

Maybe, some day, we'll find that the 'story' was true!

Nancy Robinson, Pittsburgh, PA, USA Whether the shroud is faked or real does not diminish in anyway the fact that Christ died and was wrapped in a piece of cloth.
