Sorry, with all respect to your convictions, but you are clearly far off topic, the thread is not about apocrypha, nor about ancient solar cults or
anything of Prechristian times that look to resemble in certain aspects Christian beliefs, neither about criticism among Protestants or Catholics
about what each denomination believe or not.
Here we are discussing an object that is being analyzed with scientific methods for its supposed relationship with him, and the limitations of the
present technology to show its so complex and diverse composition and how that heterogeinity don't allow a simple analysis of it using traditional C14

This is a space for scholars or researchers devoted to science not for irresponsible speculations that only reveal ignorance or resentment, we don't
accept here nonsense pseudo-theories that instead to elevate the quality of the discussion in the forum discredit it if are tolerated.
By the way If you want to discuss about the divinity or non divinity of Christ I encourage you to go into one of the forums of religion in ATS.
