Shroud of turin and carbon 14 dating
It is, they believe, the burial cloth of Jesus Christ.
Believers in the Shroud of Turin, however, insist that the Shroud is the substance of this hope and the evidence of this unseen event.When he developed the negative he noticed that it showed a positive image of a human face.He concluded that the image itself was therefore, in effect, a photographic negative.The image of the man on the Shroud can be read by 3D imaging technology. In addition, medieval paintings show the nails in the palm of Christ’s hands, the Shroud shows the nail wounds in his wrists which is anatomically correct.
The flesh of the palms would not have supported the weight of the man’s body. Pollen from the Shroud is not only from the Jerusalem area, but from Turkey and the other places the Shroud is supposed to have resided.
The carbon-14 method was developed by the American physicist Willard F. It has proved to be a versatile technique of dating fossils and archaeological specimens from 500 to 50,000 years old.
