Shroud of turin carbon dating wrong team fortress 2 100 validating
An Italian photographer by the name of Secundo Pia took the first photographs of the Shroud in 1898.
Upon developing the negatives, he noticed that the negatives themselves actually portrayed a superior image of the man on the Shroud — in other words, the Shroud was itself a negative image, and the photographic negative was in fact a positive image of the man on the Shroud.
During the 1978 testing by STRUP, sample fibrils were removed from several blood stained areas of the shroud.
Numerous tests run by the team confirmed that real human blood is present on the shroud, even identifying it to as blood type AB.
Upon examination, the STRUP team found pollen grains from seven different kinds of plants.
Noteworthy is that these plants are common in Palestine and neighboring countries, but NOT in France or Italy. The size of the shroud – 14’3″ x 3’7″ – may seem odd to some, until one measures the shroud using the standard unit of measurement in place at the time of Jesus – Assyrian Cubits.
Or is it perhaps some other tortured figure from long ago who just happens to bear the same wounds as Jesus? Because only two possibilities exist: either this is one of the sinister, most cleverly conceived and executed forgeries of all time, or it is the most important ancient relic of all time.
If indeed this is the image of a crucified man, once would expect to see evidence of broken legs (it was normal for the Romans to break the legs of their crucified victim to hasten death). There are over 100 scourge marks on the man’s front and back.
These marks are more prevalent in the back side, and run in groups of two and three.
It gets its name from the city where it has been stored since the middle ages – Turin.
The Shroud of Turin came into popular view at the advent of the 20th century, about the time photography was making its debut.
