Likkledet i Torino eldre likevel?


Dette er den aller beste og mest omfattende websiden om likkledet i Torino. De siste to år har en rekke framtredende personer dødd. De siste resultater (2005) tydet altså på at likkledet var eldre enn først antatt. Karbon 14 dateringen var utrolig nok tatt fra feil "påsydd del" av kledet hevdes det nå. Mannen som står bak websiden er ikke kristen. Han har vært med i komiteen som har undersøkt ektheten av likkledet. Selv mener han imotsetning til mange andre at likkledet er ekte:


# January 20, 2005: A peer reviewed scientific paper by Raymond N. Rogers, retired Fellow of the Los Alamos National Laboratory, is published in the journal Thermochimica Acta, Volume 425, Issues 1-2, Pages 189-194. Titled "Studies on the radiocarbon sample from the Shroud of Turin," the paper concludes: "As unlikely as it seems, the sample used to test the age of the Shroud of Turin in 1988 was taken from a rewoven area of the Shroud. Pyrolysis-mass spectrometry results from the sample area coupled with microscopic and microchemical observations prove that the radiocarbon sample was not part of the original cloth of the Shroud of Turin. The radiocarbon date was thus not valid for determining the true age of the Shroud."

Rogers' paper is extremely important as it provides a credible scientific argument for redating the cloth to determine its actual age, and is widely reported in the media, but to a far lesser extent than the coverage given to the 1988 c-14 dating that declared the cloth a "medieval fake." Almost immediately, Shroud scholars and skeptics alike begin debating, agreeing and disagreeing with Rogers and each other.

# March 8, 2005: Raymond N. Rogers, internationally renowned chemist from Los Alamos National Laboratory and member of the Shroud of Turin Research Project (STURP) team, dies in Los Alamos, New Mexico, after a long illness.

# April 14, 2005: Paul E. Damon, professor emeritus of geosciences at the University of Arizona, and head of one of the three laboratories that performed the radiocarbon dating of the Shroud in 1988, suffers a stroke while working in his office and dies two days later, on April 14.

# April 21, 2005: Robert Dinegar, retired physicist from Los Alamos National Laboratory and member of the Shroud of Turin Research Project (STURP) team, dies in Los Alamos, New Mexico.

# September 11, 2005: Professor Silvano Scannerini, member of the Turin Conservation Commission on the Holy Shroud and a respected Shroud researcher, dies this date in Italy.

# December 14 2005: Jean Lorre, imaging expert from the Jet Propulsion Laboratory and member of the Shroud of Turin Research Project (STURP) team, dies in in Pasadena, California after a brief illness.

# January 21, 2006: The Shroud of Turin Website celebrates its 10th Anniversary. With millions of visitors since it first went online, the site continues to be the definitive Internet resource for in depth Shroud information.

# April 29, 2006: The Reverend Albert R. "Kim" Dreisbach, Jr., Episcopal priest, founder of the Atlanta International Center for the Continuing Study of the Shroud of Turin (AICCSST), world reknown Sindonologist, Biblical scholar and civil rights activist, dies at the Atlanta Hartsfield Airport on his way to Italy to speak at two Shroud conferences.
