Carbon dating shroud of teran
(Via BBC)The researchers say they believe they've discovered a way the shroud could be authentic but still date to medieval times: a magnitude-8.2 earthquake in ancient Jerusalem. The Telegraph quotes one of the researchers, saying, "We believe it is possible that neutron emissions by earthquakes could have induced the image formation on the Shroud's linen fibres ...and could also have caused a wrong radiocarbon dating."Of course, this is just one possible explanation for the shroud's origins.These web sites are maintained by members of the Shroud Science Group: The Shroud of Turin (B. Porter) Shroud of Turin Education Project (in memory of Father Kim Dreisbach) Scientific papers (of G. Svensson) Council for Study of the Shroud of Turin (A. I was watching a History Channel special last night.This would have removed any organic contamination from handling or bacteria.If you look at the image, it looks like a man's face/body and not distorted as one would expect if it had been wrapped around a body.
People have been measuring materials of that age for decades now and nobody has ever encountered this."The legitimacy of the Shroud of Turin has been debated since a photo of it was published in 1898. It's imprinted with the image of a man's face and torso.But radiocarbon dating of the cloth in 1988 showed it likely came from the 13th century, not the first century when Jesus is thought to have lived. The team found that it's possible for certain types of rock to emit radiation when compressed.The idea of scientifically dating the shroud had first been proposed in the 1960s, but permission had been refused because the procedure at the time would have required the destruction of too much fabric (almost 0.05 sq m ≅ 0.538 sq ft). P.), which involved about 30 scientists of various religious faiths, including non-Christians. Testore performed the weighting operations, while Riggi made the actual cut.The development in the 1970s of new techniques for radio-carbon dating, which required much lower quantities of source material, prompted the Catholic Church to found the Shroud of Turin Research Project (S. Also present were Cardinal Ballestrero, four priests, archdiocese spokesperson Luigi Gonella, photographers, a camera operator, Michael Tite of the British Museum and the labs' representatives.
