  21. 21. 1978 Shroud of Turin Research Project Official Conclusions 1981 • The Shroud image is that of a real human form of a scourged, crucified man. • The blood stains are composed of hemoglobin. • No pigments, paints, or dyes have been found on the fibrils. • The Shroud image is not the product of an artist.
  22. 22. 1978 Shroud of Turin Research Project Official Conclusions 1981 • One must have an explanation which is scientifically sound, from a physical, chemical, biological and medical viewpoint. • There are no chemical or physical methods known which can account for the totality of the image.

  35. 35. New Evidence 1988 Carbon Dating
  36. 36. 1988 Carbon Sample: Contamination & Discoloration from Glues and Dyes from Medieval Side Strip New Evidence 1988 Carbon Dating
  37. 37. Cotton fiber from 1988 Carbon Sample 1 The Shroud linen is flax 2 There is no cotton in the main part of the Shroud. Cotton from SIDE STRIP in 1988 test sample completely invalidates the 1988 carbon dating: This finding has been confirmed by a team of 9 scientists at the Los Alamos National Laboratory. New Evidence 1988 Carbon Dating
  38. 38. Robert Villareal, Chemist, leader of team of 9 scientists at Los Alamos National Laboratory 2005: • The 1988 carbon 14 dating process failed to recognize one of the first rules of analytical chemistry…” • “Any sample taken…. must be representative of the whole.” • “Our analyses of the 3 thread samples taken from the C-14 sampling showed that this was NOT the case.” New Evidence 1988 Carbon Dating
  39. 39. • National Geographic, 2004 “There is now definitive chemical evidence that the test samples were cut from a medieval repair patch.” • Los Alamos National Laboratory, 2005 “Scientist Ray Rogers proves 1988 carbon-14 dating used an invalid rewoven sample from the medieval side strip.” • Beta Analytic, 2005 The world’s largest carbon dating firm: “Newer thread from patches in the sample… make a first century date possible.” New Evidence 1988 Carbon Dating
  40. 40. Dr. Ray Rogers, Chemist and thermal expert, Los Alamos Scientific Laboratory • Levels of vanillin in material such as linen fall over time. • Vanillin cannot be detected within the Dead Sea scrolls or other very old linens • "A determination of the kinetics of vanillin loss suggests the Shroud is between 1,300 and 3,000 years old." New Evidence 1988 Carbon Dating
  41. 41. Mechthild Flury Lemberg, Textile Expert “The Shroud cloth corresponds to fabric found at Masada which dates to the 1st Century." Gilbert Raes, Ghent Textile Institute "The Shroud herringbone weave pattern is consistent with Syrian design in 1st Century.” New Evidence 1988 Carbon Dating
  42. 42. Gulio Fanti, Professor of Chemical Engineering Padua University On the basis of 3 separate tests: -Mechanical, -Chemical -Optical Results show that the Shroud dates to: • First Century: • With a mean of 250 years New Evidence 1988 Carbon Dating
