Carbon dating test shroud turin
His finding of a minimum Oxford date of 1214 is grotesquely inaccurate and must surely be a typo, but his even more inaccurate maximum misreading has a serious effect on his later argument – I wonder if it could be deliberate fraud? A date placing the linen cloth in the first century, though not conclusive in proving the cloth to be the Shroud of Christ…": Linick, you see, said something similar.He said: “If we show the material to be medieval that would definitely mean that it is not authentic. The Shroud of Turin may be the real burial cloth of Jesus. These results therefore provide conclusive evidence that the linen of the Shroud of Turin is mediaeval. The radiocarbon measurements were done, not at one laboratory, but at three highly regarded institutions. The results provide not just evidence but conclusive evidence. Finally Ray Rogers, who had accepted the carbon dating, decided to disprove a crazy explanation from what he called the lunatic fringe. After the results had been leaked, twenty-one scientists from the University of Oxford, the University of Arizona, the Institut für Mittelenergiephysik in Zurich, Columbia University, and the British Museum wrote in a peer-reviewed paper published in Nature in 1989: The results of radiocarbon measurements at Arizona, Oxford and Zurich yield a calibrated calendar age range with at least 95% confidence for the linen of the Shroud of Turin of AD 1260 - 1390 (rounded down/up to nearest 10 yr).As part of my evidence that Arizona radiocarbon laboratory physicist Timothy W.Linick(1946-4 June 1989) was allegedly the primary hacker, who: 1) allegedly wrote and installed on Arizona radiocarbon dating laboratory’s AMS control console computer a program which ensured that the Shroud of Turin samples’ actual radiocarbon dates would be replaced by dates which, when calibrated, clustered around 1325; and 2) allegedly passed that program on to the KGB, for which he was allegedly working, to be installed by confessed KGB hacker Karl Koch (1965–3 June 1989) on the AMS control console computers at Zurich and Oxford’s radiocarbon dating laboratories; here is my evidence that Linick allegedly leaked Arizona’s 1350 radiocarbon date of the Shroud to the Rev. David Sox, an American Episcopalian (sic) priest, teaching at the American school in London.
Stop Press: A little while ago Stephen either read this blog, or someone told him of the post above, and he inserted a comment into his latest posting to the effect that he realised his dates and chart with its non-overlapping bands were based on BP dates and needed calibrating.
At one point, Stephen tells us that he has been told privately of a possible connection between three anti-something-or-others, Sox, Luckett and Rose. It was probably a mixture of older threads and newer threads woven into the cloth as part of a medieval repair.
Recent robust statistical studies add weight to this theory.
No one has a good idea how front and back images of a crucified man came to be on the cloth.
Yes, it is possible to create images that look similar.
