Turin Shroud, Carbon Dating.
Separating the facts from the fudge once and for all.
This is an excerpt from an interview with official shroud photographer and expert Barrie Schwortz (http://www.shroud.com) speaking about the radiocarbon dating of the shroud of Turin and how subsequent peer-reviewed scientific findings invalidated the premature conclusions drawn from the test results of the 1988 C14 dating. Deviant, unscientific methods were used in collecting the test samples violating the protocols previously agreed to. All three lab samples came from a single postage stamp-sized cut which happened to be from a medieval patch that had been woven into the shroud which had previously been advised about not to be sampled from. The carbon-dating was accurate, the samples were not and did not represent the chemical composition of the main part of the shroud. Bad science begets bad results however it does make good propaganda in the media echo chamber which gladly ignores the hundreds of other scientific and historical data points that indicate authenticity not to mention the inexplicable nature of the shroud image that defies any modern scientific explanation and all attempts to recreate the image despite yet more hollow claims perpetuated by mass media and the popular ignorance of the day.
The hard scientific facts will matter not one iota to the beliefs of militant atheists and secular fundamentalists (pseudo-skeptics of the day), simply because said beliefs were never founded on such, but rather bitter emotions, self-deception, vast ignorance (accentuated by immense arrogance), attitude, shallowness, historical-illiteracy, naivety, lack of discernment, gullibility, self-deception, hostility and hatred for all things Christian (which for them, like science, cannot be distinguished from imitations and counterfeits for many of the same reasons). It's only fitting that real science should support the scriptures for it is the scriptures themselves that inspired nearly all the founders of the modern fields of science to begin with as they themselves declared and often lectured and wrote about, including Newton, Faraday, Copernicus, Galileo, Kepler, Mendel, Pasteur, Kelvin, Boyle, Planck, Cuvier, Linnaeus, Maxwell, Ray, Boyd, Bacon, Pascal, Steno, Joule, Morse, etc, etc. this also makes sense of why none of the founders of the modern fields of science were ever Atheists (MAYBE there's a rare exception somewhere???). Atheists can only leech off the Christian establishment of science, imitate science, and claim it as their exclusive territory while simultaneously attacking the very belief system that developed it, namely, a logical, transcendent Creator of the Laws of Nature whose handiwork declares his brilliance and beckons us to more and more discovery -- "thinking God's thoughts after him" as Kepler put.
