Even stranger is that after his experiment, Hutchison was unable to repeat the project again with the same results.
This experiment was so popular it even sparked the interest of NASA and the Military, both whom have failed to produce the Hutchison Effect.
It was so far from being something I cared about that I never paid it any attention.
Thus, when in 1979, Walter Mc Crone, a world renowned forensic microscopist, claimed that he found paint on a few Shroud fibers, I didn’t notice the story.
An image was created that is still inexplicable and which can’t be copied.
Could this be related to the moment of Resurrection? Not a crucial test In all the studies there is not a single issue which undermines all other facts. From the 1989 study it was concluded that the cloth dated from the period between 12. But the conclusion caused more problems than solutions, because it is absolutely certain the shroud existed in the 7th century.
Even though more than one man was crucified (although the numbers were not that great), we only know of Jesus that he was tortured, whipped, was given a crown of thorns and ws stabbed in His side after His death. Impossible to copy The image was created at a time that the shroud was stretched.
The Gospels are in complete agreement with the image on the shroud. Sabbath Jesus’ body was buried in a shroud with haste, because it was the eve of the sabbath. It was a temporary burial and a definitive one was intended to be held after the sabbath. And the shroud shows nowhere that the linen was removed from the body.
I could not recall ever reading anything about the Shroud of Turin.I must admit, with some embarrassment, that until a few years ago I knew nothing about the Shroud of Turin.And when I first did read about it, while on a flight to Miami, I laughed out loud, something I rarely do alone in the company of strangers. How can anyone think the Shroud of Turin is real: the actual burial shroud of Jesus?So the question was now: what went wrong: what went wrong with the C-14 test?Probably this: the piece of cloth used for the test was highly contaminated because it come from a part (a corner) where the cloth was held at expositions during the centuries. Minority Only a very small minority of scientists who worked with the shroud excludes the possibility that it is the shroud of Jesus. Some believe that it is really the burial shroud of Jesus.Having enjoyed Cahill’s previous best seller, The Gifts of the Jews, I thought I would enjoy his newest book. Suddenly, with no logical reason that I could see, Cahill introduced the Shroud of Turin.It might have been a treasure of the early church, he thought. I remember being surprised that I knew so little about the Shroud of Turin.The fact that the Shroud of Turin has an image on it, believed to be a picture of Christ, made it seem beyond preposterous.I was reading Desire of the Everlasting Hills, Thomas Cahill’s book about the apostolic era.Adding to the political turmoil, the Pope was in Avignon, not Rome.Indicative of the thinking in this age, some believed that the plague was God’s retribution on the whole world because the Pope was not in the eternal city.
