The third part, Biblical Accounts Corroborated by the Shroud, can be read here. Wayne Phillips (posted below) as the basis of my notes.The Carbon Dating Between 19, there were over 100 studies of the Shroud published in peer-reviewed scientific journals, all of which point to it being authentic.You can read the first part, The Facts and History of the Shroud, here.The second part, The Physical Science study, can be read here.Decades of research on Jesus' proposed burial cloth have revealed an array of conflicting ideas surrounding the shroud's authenticity.However, researchers from Italy's National Agency for New Technologies, Energy and Sustainable Economic Development believe their findings undermine previous theories that the shroud was faked in the medieval period, the reports.These people were called “the lunatic fringe” because everything they said didn’t make any sense. Sue Benford was a nurse who had been watching TV in 1997 and heard of the Shroud for the first time. But she was convinced by the evidence that the Shroud was real.Her husband, Joe Marrino, had been a Shroud fan since 1977. So for one to two years, she collected copies of photographs of the piece of cloth that the carbon dating was done on. What she noticed in 2001 (that was published in 2008) was that the cotton threads of the piece of cloth that the carbon dating was done on had differences from one side to the other.
Under a microscope, one can see cotton fibers and linen fibers mixed together, with end to end sticking.Also, under a microscope, it is apparent that the cotton was died to match the color of the linen.The French had the best reweaving techniques and the best tapestry re-weavers of the world in the 1500s. The sample that was sent to the 3 carbon dating labs (that dated it somewhere between 1238 AD and 1430 AD), from left to right, it gets more and more cotton.Whiting describes reports of fibers detected from an area of cloth directly adjoining the tested samples retaining a gum coating not found on any of the fibers from the main part of the shroud.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.
