Thread: Sacred Shroud of Turin

  1. #1
    Scientists now believe the Shroud of Turin may indeed be the burial cloth of Jesus Christ

    Below is the link to the website of a scientist who has been studying the cloth since 1978 ... and this man is a Jewish scientist who possesses no hidden agenda ... but testing has now debunked the carbon dating that was done some years back, where the cloth was declared an artifact from the medieval period, and it is now believed to date back to the very time of Jesus Christ

    Anyhow, if you're interested below is a link to Barrie Shwortz website ... the scientist who has been studying the shroud since the 70's ... and at the site you will find a link for breaking news

    PS. This is not the rantings of an internet lunatic cause these findings have also been widely reported in a number of liberal journals including the NY Times

    And again, all of these findings are purely scientific ... all based on the findings of scientists who have been studying the shroud for quite some time

    [b]Link below[/b] {when you get there you can click the link for BREAKING NEWS}

    And if you click on the image of the shroud on the front page {as seen below} it will take you to the main menu where you can further study the shroud

    So, we should take the word of the "untrustable" Scientists......

    .....about an object your OWN beliefs say is scientifically untestable (as it is a divine item, a literal impression of the Messiah).

    I thought science was evil Hambone? That in matters of faith, science was clearly and universally misinformed and wrong headed (your position, not mine). Or is that only the case when it doesn't agree with your faith?

    I'll make you a deal....I'll check out this website IF (and only IF) you go out a find a copy of the recent (perhaps two months old) National Geographic with it's 30-odd page review of the science behind Evolution.

    Deal? :D

    Wholly mackeral ... talk about creating a straw man and then tearing it down

    Talk about having your opinions not only mischaracterized, but flatout perverted

    When exactly did I make all of these statements about science which you attribute too me in this post ... then proceed to use as proof of my hypocrisy?

    Because I expressed skepticism at the [b]theory of evolution[/b], where did you get the idea I was making this giant leap towards dismissing all fields of scientific endevour?

    Common War, you're smarter than that and you're better than that

    As for the deal, I'm a afraid I have to reject that deal ... thirty pages on evolution?????

    A man can only endure so much torture :rolleyes: :D

    Sorry Hambone, if I have misunderstood you. However, the general feeling I got from reading many of your posts in this forum is that you have a general distrust and dislike of Science and the Scientific community due to their hethenous and un-Godlike ways....and for their general dismissal of faith in their explorations.

    The vibe I got was that if a particular scientist or scientific theory didn't match your faith, then you dismissed it out of hand as more anti-God/anti-Christian fallacies.

    If that ISN'T how you felt, well, I'm sorry but that is the vibe you gave off IMO.

    Whoa! What is this? The midevil Catholic Church? Science can be used to prove the truthfullness of the bible just as much as it can be used to disprove it. The idea that a cloth might have come from the time of Jesus or even been used on him personally is not such a stretch.

    This is crazy

    Because I take issue with junk science like evolution or agenda driven enviornmental extremism, you get this vibe that I dismiss all [b]LEGITIMATE[/b] fields of scientific endevour? :blink:

    Well that is not the case ... again, that is not the case ... and it never has been

    I think you'll find most folks who take issue with junk science feel the same ... it is only junk science which they take issue with, and not all fields of scientific endevour ... but if it makes you feel better to believe the characiture of people of faith as uneducated dopes who reject all expressions of modernity, be my guest

    BTW, if anyone wishes to discuss the actual topic ... you know, the shroud ... I'm all ears

    Thanks RT ... I missed it ... didn't catch this post in time :(

    But I did see a terrific documentary on the Discovery Channel recently, where all of the scientists involved in this pursuit were interviewed ... it was staggering

    Forget it, post deleted. There is no point in debate with a man of faith. Faith, by definition, in unquestionable. You cannot debate the unquestionable.

    Fact is, there is nothing I could ever say or do or show you, no proof good enough, that you would deviate from the faith.

    So any answer I could give, including my original 50 line rant I just deleted, is like pissin into the wind.....damn pointless and messy besides.



    Enjoy your conversation about your magic shroud......

    That's just foolishness

    I really don't wish to have this evolution debate all over again ... it's senseless ... we'll simply be repeating ourselves ... I'll only say that I named at the time a number of prominent scientists {past and present} who accepted creation and rejected evolution ... so why would I have done that if my entire dismissal was based solely on religious doctrine?

    As I pointed out at the time, there is plenty of debate within the scientific community regarding evolution ... it is not even a fully accepted theory amongst men of science ... I made that argument loud and clear, and I provided the evidence to back it up ... so if you are telling me that only religious yahoos reject evolution, you are badly mistaken

    Oh yeah, and there is an entire field of science called "creation science" ... but of course the evolutionists will reject that as JUNK SCIENCE ... but that's okay, right?

    :lol: Hey man, you tossed me a curveball ... deleted the post and made me respond to nothing ... now I really look like a religious kook :lol:

    WRONG

    It's not my conversation ... it's REAL MEN OF SCIENCE who are conducting an open minded pursuit of the truth, and their findings are leading them to believe the cloth is authentic

    But feel free to reject their findings cause it doesn't jibe with YOUR predisposed beliefs ;)

    Hey Bit, have you ever visisted a science lab?

    I have ... used to work in one, believe it or not ... and those cats all look like they&#39;ve spent a lifetime smoking massive quantities of ganja :lol:

    GJ & H, not to try to attack you or anything, but can you please tell me what the argument is against evolution from a scientific standpoint? I am aware that some reject evolution or parts of it, but I tend to believe this is from a faith-based standpoint. I&#39;m simply wondering what are the problems of evolution from a purely scientific standpoint?
