Shroud is legit!!!
Saw this on my overly religious SIL's FB page today and I actually laughed out loud. Gotta love a guy who is a Jew that is convinced the shroud is real but remains a Jew.

I thought they proved with like 98% accuracy (by carbon dating) that the material was from the 1300s?

Oh wait, this is 2017. The year of alternate facts.

RE: Shroud is legit!!!
I've said this before when someone else brought this up in another thread: If a shroud was found, it would not be surprising. There are religious artifacts from all different cultures and religions found all the time. All it would prove is that Jesus was a man who existed and then was crucified. So what? The Romans crucified all kinds of people--it was a common practice--as was the tradition of wrapping bodies in shrouds.

This reminded me of Christopher Buckley's The Relic Master.

I'm a bit sad about Buckley's decision not to write contemporary political satire anymore, but this book was pretty good, nevertheless.

RE: Shroud is legit!!!
In 2009 Israeli archaeologist, Shimon Gibson found an actual 1st century burial shroud. Oddly, it was in separate pieces for the head and body in the manner described in the gospel not as a single sheet of cloth as envisioned by some 14th century French artist.

Gibson speculated that the reason the shroud was found was because this particular tomb had been sealed up and remained intact. The victim showed signs of both leprosy and tuberculosis so there would have been good reason not to go near him!

I particularly like this bit:

Quote:“It’s a pre-resurrection image, because if it were a post-resurrection image, it would be a living man – not a dead man,” he said, adding that science is unable to test for the sort of images that would be produced by a human body rising from the dead.

I mean, he's not technically wrong.

It's an image of an OLD Italian dude.
It's not an image of a 30 year old Near Eastern male.

RE: Shroud is legit!!!
Artwork - probably fairly gaudy at the time it was made but now faded to the point where the image is nearly invisible.

Anyway, the "Top of the Head Problem" crushes any thought that the fucking thing is real.

Note that the front of the head and the back of the head are separated by about a half inch so either "jesus" was a half inch thick or this thing was laid over a thin board!

Greet Gumby Jesus!
