Radiocarbon dating on the shroud of turin

But if the newer thread is about half of what was tested – and some evidence suggests that – it is possible that the cloth is from the time of Christ.

I am an Australian evangelical Christian in my 70s. Which is about the length of the Ninety Mile Beach in Victoria, Australia, only a part of which is shown right[24]. M., 2012, "New Photographs of Arizona Radiocarbon Dating Laboratory Samples," Shroud.com, November 21.

I am persuaded by the evidence that the Shroud of Turin is the burial sheet of Jesus Christ and bears His crucified and resurrected image. This is part #1 of my concluding summary of the evidence that the 1988 radiocarbon dating of the Shroud of Turin as "mediaeval ... Therefore the 1988 radiocarbon dating of the Shroud as "1260-1390"[25] has effectively no chance of being correct, given that the Shroud is authentic (see above), and therefore first century. Hall stated it was "totally impossible" (his emphasis) that the Shroud could have a radiocarbon date of 1260-1390, yet its actual date was "AD 100" or less[26].■ Conventional explanations of the discrepancy all fail. T., 2010, "Investigating a Dated [sic] Piece of the Shroud of Turin," Radiocarbon, Vol 52, No 4.

Again, this is all published in peer-reviewed scientific journals.

We simply do not have enough reliable information to arrive at a scientifically rigorous conclusion.

One of the new articles quoted Pope John Paul II in 1998 saying continued research should be done.

I think researchers have done their part in continuing research but one can only do so much with the 1978 data.

I know the Pope has a lot of things on his plate but if Popes and Archbishops are giving lip service to research/new testing, he really needs to reevaluate the role of the Shroud in the church.
