While science and scholarship have demonstrated that the Shroud of Turin is not the burial cloth of Jesus but instead a fourteenth-century forgery, shroud devotees continue to claim otherwise.

In medieval Europe alone there were more than forty “True Shrouds,” although the Turin Cloth uniquely bears the apparent imprints of a man, crucified like Jesus in the gospel narratives. Unfortunately, the alleged “relic” has not fared well in various scientific examinations—except those conducted by Shroud partisans like those of the Shroud of Turin Research Project (STURP), whose leaders served on the executive council of the pro-authenticity Holy Shroud Guild.

just thought this was a good article to post in this forum...

The shroud of Turin is a hoax. Anyone who believes otherwise needs to do more research......

I actually can't accept that the shroud is a hoax. I don't believe there has been sufficient evidence to prove that. I personally feel it is still an unsolved mystery.

New tests link Turin Shroud to era of Jesus

New tests reveal the Turin Shroud to be far older than carbon dating first suggested, and may indeed date to biblical times as believers claim.

Raymond Rogers, of the University of California's Los Alamos Laboratory, argues that carbon-dating tests on the shroud in 1988 were "invalid" because they were performed on a replacement section rather than the original linen.

the innaccuracies of carbon dating itself should be enough to invalidate any test but the people who are in possesion of the shroud dont want any valid test done to prove it is fake, for fear of losing a sacred object
