This is an older post, but I thought that with the History Channel and other news outlets, including the Vatican’s admission that the Shroud was revered by the Knights Templar, it would be expedient to bring this post back for your perusal. On the Bill O’Reilly show tonight there is going to be a segment on the Shroud. I am a believer that the Shroud of Turin is the ‘calling card of God!” Enjoy the post and we’ll talk about Jim Tetlow’s appearance on the Thursday’s edition of Acceleration Radio!
The Shroud of Turin is probably the most enigmatic artifact that we have on the planet today. It is a piece of cloth that bears the image of a crucified man. Through the centuries it was an artifact that was revered, but little was known about it. When Secondo Pia photographed it in 1898, he discovered , to his astonishment, that the image on the cloth was in fact, a negative image. In other words the developing process that was used in photography in those days, first created a negative image, from which the photographer continuing with the developing process would then create a positive image from. What amazed Pia and others who study the Shroud is that this process was unknown until modern times. The reason I bring this up is this. How would a medieval forger know about the process of photography centuries before it was invented? That idea is just simply preposterous! But I’m getting ahead of myself….
Let’s strip it down and expose what makes this artifact so unique.
1. The blood stains on the Shroud indicate that it is type AB, so it is has been established that the blood stains are real and not PAINT!
2. The image on the Shroud is so faint that it is impossible to differentiate between some anatomical features, from less than several feet.
3. The image is anatomically perfect. There is no existing work of art – product of human eye-hand coordination – that is anatomically perfect!
4. Marks of a severe scourging are on the Shroud. These marks match the Roman flagrum, which was used during the first century.
5. The scourging was savage because there are at least 120 marks on the body, both frontal and dorsal from the neck to the ankels.
6. The blood on the Shroud was deposited on the Shroud before the image was formed.
7. Recent findings on the Shroud reveal that there are tow small coins covering the eyes. These coins were struck in Israel between 29 & 33 AD. How would a forger acquire these?
8. Pollen grains on the Shroud are consistent with what is believed to be the historical route of the Shroud, beginning at Jerusalem, going to Edessa and then eventually to Turin Italy.
9. There are around 30 images of flowers seen in the Shroud. The presence of these plants have been substantiated by the findings of matching pollen.
10. Some of these flowers are only found in and around Jerusalem. How could a forger get these flowers and use them as part of a hoax. Moreover, these flowers were only discovered in the later part of the 20 century.
I believe the Shroud is, what I have come to call it, “The Calling Card of God.”
In my new book, The Alien Interviews, I interview Dr. Whanger, who has studied the Shroud for more than 30 years. I use his interview to point to a new physics – one that we don’t yet understand – which may have been responsible for creating the image on the cloth. Believe it or not, I also tie the process that created the Shroud into the abduction phenomena!
