The man depicted in the shroud is exactly how Jesus was depicted in Art post 4th Century BCE, he has European features and long hair. Regardless of how the majority of European and North American Art depicts Jesus he was a Jew and had features that were common to this area, not European features. He did not have long flowing hair if Jesus existed he would have looked like all other men of this period and for Jewish men did not have long hair as it was seen as unacceptable and an affront to God. If you choose to believe the Bible (John 8:59 and Luke 8.30) it states that Jesus looked like all the other men of this period and was able to blend into a crowd, this would never had been possible if he had long flowing hair and everyone else had short hair !

Arab men of this period did not look European and it is insulting to try and depict them as such, it just seems that a lot of Christians have problems with a supposed Saviour who was not white or fair skinned. When Christianity began to take over as the majority religion of the Roman Empire in the 4th Century Jesus was depicted very much as a God the people were familiar with (Zeus with flowing hair, Serapis etc) so that the illiterate masses could look at a depiction and know who it was and that he was a God.

Do I know how the Shroud was made and could I make one ? - probably not but that does not make it a miracle, I don't know how a 747 'plane is built and could not replicate one but that is not a miracle either.

I suppose faith is all about ignoring facts and believing the unbelievable but it is insulting to those of us who actually use our brains (God given or otherwise !) to spout a lot of drivel that is neither historically or Scientifically correct to try and prove a Medieval fake is genuine.

For those interested, a relatively new documentary on the Turin Shroud is available on Youtube.

The upload date is Aug. 2011 and it's called: Shroud of Turin - New Evidence.

It provides a good overview on the continuing scientific and archeological inquiry into this intriguing cloth.

I tend to lean towards a very brilliant hoax, but it is still a powerful christian icon, much like other paintings and sculptures found all over Europe.

OMG!!!!!

What is wrong with all of you!!!!!

Stop with the stupid carbon dating crap!!!!

The shroud is of Jacques De Molay!!!!!!

Its not of Yeshua or anyone else!!!!!


Stop it already. There are countless books on what had happened to Molay. Molay died in 1314ad. Its his image that the Vatican copied for it to be "jesus".

Seriously all you people think its christ or Leo.Davin. have no freaken clue. You just hope and think and have faith that it is Yeshua or Leo. All of you sound like fools.

Learn your history people

Have any Scientists actually come out saying they know how the pyramids were made so accurately and in such a short space of time and can prove it? As far as I know, and I have researched the Pyramids extensively, the pyramids still baffle the best scientists and archaeologists we have.

For instance the tunnel at the bottom of the Great Pyramid, which stretches underground for an unknown distance and is still being explored, should have been impossible for the Egyptians to build with their primitive technologys. The only way we could recreate a tunnel of such length going to such great depth would be with the highest spec drilling machinery using lasers etc.

I wonder

Couldn't this simply have been made using a magnifying glass and some sunlight...art student around 1200-1300ad just drawing what his interpretation of a shroud would look like.

Scientists tend to overlook the simple answer, and when considering the timeframe we are discussing (medieval era according to the cloth), what was available to them...simple tools really..magnifying glass and a bit of time would produce a similar high uv saturation burn.

I don't imagine it would be too difficult to test this out..and it may not be the answer, but that is the first thing that pops into my head, and I haven't found any repository on what tests have been preformed yet...

No way is it a medieval hoax they didn't even have the technology to make such a thing back then.


I think you'd be surprised by the tricks real Alchemists had up their voluminous sleeves, back in the day.


Did you read the article? Scientists have proven that there is no way that could of created this in medieval times. Some how I don't think even the best Alchemists had high-intensity ultra violet lasers back in those days.

No they haven't. Straight-up lie right there you just told. Scientists haven't proven anything of the sort. They weren't alive in medieval times so how would they know? Just like we have to guess what made the dinosaurs extinct, we have to guess about this particular subject.

My biggest fear in the world are "scientists" calling something supernatural because it is a "science" they don't fully understand yet.

Well thats just it, isn't it.
In the world of science, there is no such thing as "supernatural" or "Paranormal". Even if Zeus showed up and magicked a unicorn made of jelly beans, they wouldn't call that those two words..
Simply not understood...everything is a science, nothing is above it..we simply do not have all the knowledge yet.

So, if a paper states a scientist claimed it was supernatural..one of three things has happened
1) The paper mistranslated
2) The scientist in question is not a real scientist
3) Somebody is making stuff up

Well, it is consistent with what the findings are. I read through the wiki and some other random links discussing the "peculiar" nature of it...basically, its uv bursting, replicated by a laser beam..and a magnifying glass

..since they didn't have good lasers back then...
Just not sure where the "they didn't have the tech back then" argument came from...sure, they didn't have a laser beam..but they did have all sorts of mag glasses and possibly was a fun art form (if a bit subtle)

Also it is consistent with the european artistic rendition of what they wanted Christ to look like (a nord).

Alternatively, if we are going to go with it being supernatural..perhaps it was just a vampire left out in daylight covered by only a thin cloth

Why is it you Christians always cry supernatural when there's something you can't explain. This whole posting is B.S. for several reasons. 1. You can't spell correctly and there should be an intelligence level required to be able to use ATS to eliminate stories like yours. 2. The article NEVER said the word Supernatural. All they were stating is it would have been impossible for them to create it. 3. Um, why does the shroud necessarily belong to Jesus? Couldn't any dead body laid out in the sun too long have produced the effect? How do they know it belonged to Jesus, THEY DON'T!! 4. Lastly, You only posted this article to argue with people. You have commented on everyone's argument for another option. You asked what we think, and then argue with us because you have some little man syndrome that needs to be right all the time. SO WHAT EVER!!

There are other choices besides "Religious or atheist" scientists you know. There are people like myself, a scientist, that is not a religious person, but also not an atheist. I approach each theory with an open mind no matter how ridiculous it sounds to me, because theories are what keep human ingenuity and intrigue alive. Also for every scientist when we are being trained we are taught that the goal of every theory is to disprove it, so write your theories with this in mind. The goal of science is progression of thought!

i'm sorry, but i have never been able to trust articles like this, thanks to the rise in scientific degree programs available at religious universities, such as these:
Biola University
Abilene Christian University

to cut it short, most can be found in a directory like the one below:
Christian Universities

to get to the point though, There are schools like this all over the world. I would look into the background of the scientists themselves, and where their respectable degrees are from, because if they did graduate from such a school, there would be too much bias already placed on the theory before studies even came to fruition (just my opinion, of course)

It would be like a nutritionist, who attended the University of McDonalds, producing an independant study that concluded Burger King is bad for you.
I call it hoax.

No, that is a simple sentence that doesn't understand the definition of a theist/atheist. People tend to write that to feel they are above everyone, when it only demonstrates their poor grasp of the terms.

Theist = Belief in a deity
Atheist = Non belief in a deity

Gnostic = Has knowledge
Agnostic= Has no knowledge.

So, for instance, I am an agnostic atheist. I don't know all the answers, but I do not believe in deitys (not that I cannot believe in them, just that there is no reason to believe in them because I do not have any evidence or knowledge of them...same with aliens from Zeta..don't believe in them, but they may be real, I just haven't found any proof yet, so until that time comes, I am going with..don't know, its a unicorn for now

Most people are Agnostic Theists..meaning they don't have proof, or any real evidence, but they believe in some sort of deity anyhow because they have been scared into believing in something, and its the social norm

Fundys are Gnostic Theists...they know there is a God because of (x).

So, you are either theist, or atheist. You are also either gnostic or agnostic.

Its hair splitting, I know..but the more this becomes muddied, the less people will fully understand what the concepts are in general...and the less people understand what an atheist is..which I suspect lots and lots of people are atheist at heart..just too confused or frightened to admit it..(I hear atheists are baby eating devils whom demand there are no gods)

Hmm
Burger King is bad for you is a hoax?

oh thank god.

-noms-



Yes, credentials matter...agreed. Should some quack try to push forward the shroud of turin being magical, it will be ripped apart in the peer reviewed process anyhow.

Everyone here is an idiot... I'm sorry I had to say it. There is logical proof in many records that the shroud's image is and caused by the body of Jacques De Molay. Who died in 1314ad.

The half of you are turning this thread into something else and the latter are convinced jesus or Leonardo are behind this mystery.


ITS FREAKEN JACQUES DE MOLAY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


There is nothing special about the freaken shroud!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I thought this had been proposed before, if not already established. I formulated my opinion, that the image was caused by a high-intensity burst of energy, based on scientific research done within what I believe was the last few years.

It had already been established that it was not paint, or ink, or anything that was applied to the surface. The fact that a team, which they made a television program about, was able to extract 3D information and reconstruct the face of "Jesus," was also very intriguing, and seems to back up the claims of high-intensity electromagnetic radiation, in this case in the ultra-violet spectrum of energy.

It is hard for a skeptic to understand how this could have naturally occurred, and being myself relatively skeptical of religious relics, I also have a hard time finding a suitable explanation. But, I AM willing to accept a supernatural explanation more readily than some, although only after the data is in and has been repeated.

In this case, it seems to have been repeated, but I think it should still be looked at by other expert scientists, although access to the relic is probably extremely limited.

I've read enough of your shouting posts...here is the info on De Molay, that refutes your claims.


Jacques de Molay (c. 1240/1250 – March 1314[1]) was the 23rd and last Grand Master of the Knights Templar, leading the Order from 20 April 1292 until it was dissolved by order of Pope Clement V in 1312.[2[/ex

Here's the part that should be of interest to you.


King Philip IV of France, deeply in debt to the Templars, had de Molay and many other French Templars arrested in 1307 and tortured into making false confessions. When de Molay later retracted his confession, Philip had him burned at the stake on an island in the River Seine in Paris, in March 1314.


Key phrase being...*he was burned at the stake*. Got it...crispy critter. Not the face in the shroud.

S&F for the interesting post OP. I have always been interested in the shroud when I happen to come along sites/shows/etc. that mention it, but I must admit I do not know much about it.

While I'm now inclined to believe it's probably fake, there's a little bit of fantasy/hope left in me that makes me want to believe it's real.

I haven't read the entire thread yet but bookmarking for later so I can continue to read everyone's informational responses.
