the shroud is not only not of turn of the millinium manufacture, but the flax in it IS carbon dated to the early 1300's.

Actually that is incorrect. The carbon dating carried out on the shroud was carried out on one of the corners of the shroud and it was the corners that were always handled the most when the shroud was help up and displayed by religious leaders in the medieval period. This means that the results from the carbon dating are wrong.

How does the amount it was handled by people change the carbon molecules that are used in carbon dating? Seems like it would cause wear and tear but I don't think it would change the carbon molecules in it. Please clarify.

I'm curious as to the reactions from Brothers, who have read the book, concerning the Authors allegation that the Rituals themselves have been changed.

I just recently came back to ATS and also i'd just finished reading a very compelling book. The Second Messiah. A general overview of the book, is it talks about the Turin Shroud, The Knights Templar and Freemasonry, and how they all interlink with each other It's also been written by the same duo who did The Hiram Key.
Just wondering if many people have read this and what your thoughts were about it ?
I have to say, that although it didnt reveal too many great secrets about Freemasonry, it did open my eyes to alot of things we perceive as being normal.. and some of the links between these organisations seem to have too many coincidences to be dismissed as false.
