• The evidence is overwhelming that the Shroud of Turin is authentic.
For example, building on the work of others, I presented historical and artistic evidence in my posts, "Revised #1," "Revised #2 (Vignon markings)," "Revised #3" and "Revised #4 which proved beyond reasonable doubt that the Shroud existed in the early 13th century (c. 950), well before its earliest 1260 radiocarbon date.• Therefore the 1988 radiocarbon dating of the Shroud as AD 1260-1390 was wrong.
I am an Australian evangelical Christian in my 70s. The midpoint of 1260-1390 is 1325 plus or minus 65 years.
I am persuaded by the evidence that the Shroud of Turin is the burial sheet of Jesus Christ and bears His crucified and resurrected image. Which `just happens' to be 25-30 years before the Shroud first appeared in undisputed history at Lirey, France in the 1350s. Jacques Evin, then Director of the Radiocarbon Laboratory at the University of Lyon, who contributed a 13th century control sample for the dating, it is not possible for radiocarbon dating to be "closer than a span of 200 years":"Many people expect the carbon 14 dating of the Shroud to be very precise.
He starts out with an explanation of what carbon dating is, which proves to be adequate for this discussion.
The only notable exception is that he says carbon dating is only good for objects less than 40,000 years old. As technologies advance, so does our ability to detect the amount of C-14 in a sample.
I will continue documenting the historical evidence for the Shroud's existence from the 13th to the 1st century in my "The Shroud of Turin" series when I get to "4. AD 1260-1390":"Very small samples from the Shroud of Turin have been dated by accelerator mass spectrometry in laboratories at Arizona, Oxford and Zurich. The results provide conclusive evidence that the linen of the Shroud of Turin is mediaeval ...
".]See my last post in that series, "Revised #5," for the background to this new series. Their results, published on 16 February 1989, in the scientific journal Nature, claimed that "the linen of the Shroud of Turin is mediaeval ...
Just this one fact totally upsets data obtained by C-14 dating." A study of plants of the past, using tree-rings, confirms a direct correlation between C-14 levels and the earth's magnetic field, over the last 8,000 years.Sometimes, it is near zero, other times it is greatly increased.Therefore over time, we could have reached equilibrium many times. Since the rate of C-14 production is far from constant, the theory that the earth is less than 30,000 years old based on equilibrium is unreliable. Hedges (Oxford) announcing on 13 October 1988 that the Shroud of Turin had been radiocarbon dated to "1260-1390! THE 1988 RADIOCARBON DATING OF THE SHROUD AS "AD 1260-1390." From 6 May-6 August 1988, the Shroud of Turin was radiocarbon dated by laboratories at Arizona, Zurich and Oxford.
It will not be possible to pinpoint where the exact age of the Shroud can be situated within the span ...".However, a "candle" can hardly be compared to "radioactive decay." These are merely empty words meant to impress his gullible readers..gives no real scientific evidence.
