Shroud of turin carbon dating wrong
The site is chock-full of pictures, recent news and especially articles on every aspect of Shroud research. If you want just one book that summarizes the Shroud phenomenon with an emphasis on recent work, then Dr. Zugibe was the Chief Medical Examiner of Rockland County, New York for over 30 years and continues a century-long medical/anatomical consensus that the Shroud images are consistent with a crucified corpse.
The first half of his book gives an in-depth medical analysis of Christ’s Passion, while the last half is devoted to the Shroud.
A powerful earthquake could achieve the same effect, generating neutron radiation from stresses in the Earth, it is claimed.
Mark Antonacci, a leading expert on the Shroud and president of the Resurrection of the Shroud Foundation, is currently petitioning Pope Francis to allow molecular analysis of the cloth using the latest technology.
How was the image made and of what does it really consist?
In addition, the radiation emissions would have increased the level of carbon-14 isotopes in the Shroud, which would make it appear younger.
"We believe it is possible that neutron emissions by earthquakes could have induced the image formation on the Shroud's linen fibres, through thermal neutron capture on nitrogen nuclei, and could also have caused a wrong radiocarbon dating," said Professor Alberto Carpinteri, from the Politecnico di Torino.
Other scientists have previously suggested that neutron radiation may have been responsible for the ghostly image of a crucified man with his arms crossed.
However, no plausible explanation has been offered for the source of the radiation.
