When this evidence is taken into consideration, the carbon dating cannot reflect the date of the untested original main Shroud body, only the period of the tested material added at a later date.Moreover, Rogers found that the Shroud sample used for radiocarbon dating contain alizarin dye (utilized by the re-weavers to match the original main cloth), whereas no dye of any form was found on any part of the original Shroud cloth (Whiting believed the Shroud of Turin to be genuine, in The Shroud Story he wrote: Like an epiphany, it seems science has kept resurrecting evidence that the shroud indeed dates back to the time of Christ, as if repeatedly defying those who have attempted to condemn it as a medieval fake ( Italian scientists gave the Christian world an unexpected present and set off an international news sensation by announcing their finding that the image of the crucified man on the Shroud of Turin was likely caused by a burst of ultraviolet light that was beyond the technical capabilities of medieval forgers.The machine used to examine the Shroud's fibres and test traction, allowed researchers to examine tiny fibres alongside about twenty samples of cloth dated between 3000 BC and 2000 AD."Final results show that the Shroud fibres examined produced the following dates, all of which are 95% certain and centuries away from the medieval dating obtained with Carbon-14 testing in 1988: the dates given to the Shroud after FT-IR testing, is 300 BC 400, 200 BC 500 after Raman testing and 400 AD 400 after multi-parametric mechanical testing.This website focuses on the latest dating challenges of the Shroud of Turin.

Whiting said this fact had not been discovered by the coordinators of the tests because, although the original protocol had called for the chemical analysis of the samples prior to their destruction during testing, the three testing laboratories did not perform the analysis.

And I think your dissent for the day commenter was right to remind us that fundamentalists do too. I thought it was interesting that Pope Benedict XVI, while speaking in Freiburg, Germany this past Sunday, said, “Agnostics, who are constantly exercised by the question of God …
