Italian scientists have found a matching image of a man's face and possibly his hands on the back of the Turin shroud, believed by many to be the burial cloth of Jesus Christ, one of the researchers said on Thursday.

The discovery that the ghostly image on the back of the linen cloth matches the face that adorns the front is likely to reignite debate over whether the shroud is genuine or a skilful medieval fraud.

"The fact that the image is two-sided makes any forgery difficult," Professor Giulio Fanti of the University of Padua told Reuters.

This is an interesting developement on the Turin controversy. I'm personally unsure of what such an image implies other than what the article suggests: it is all the less likely to be a forgery. Thoughts?

personally, i think the shroud is a fake.

the articles and other posts on that page only solidify my belief that it's just a well thought-out hoax.

You "think" the shroud is a fake? Have you read anything on it? I mean a real book with evidence presented and judgements made upon the evidence? Not "feelings".
The Resurrection of the Shroud written by Mark Antonnaci is the best book I've found written on the subject, alot of scientific data.

It's no wonder there's such a clamour to authenticate the Turin shroud ,when you consider how many millions of christians there are .
I believe this piece of cloth was forged in the middle-ages.
