Who invented radioactive dating for the turin shroud
Ever wonder why creationism sounds like limp science? Sit back & enjoy the ride as Aron Ra takes you on a Magical Mystery Tour of Blunderland. Even our collective politicians - seemingly all of them - are wrapped up in this controversy.
population seems pretty evenly divided over whether the human species is biologically related to other animals or whether we were "specially-created" as part of a flurry of miracles.
You could say that the border between countries is a one dimensional line along the ground, but there are no physical laws that have anything to do with national borders, so it doesn’t matter.
It’s impossible to get something that’s genuinely 2-D in our universe for several reasons, the simplest of which is that atoms themselves are 3-D.
If it weren’t for the flatness of the atmosphere (and some obscure math involving “entropy flow” in 2-D fluids) we wouldn’t get hurricanes!
The shroud allegedly was in a fire during the early part of the 16th century and, according to believers in the shroud's authenticity, that is what accounts for the carbon dating of the shroud as being no more than 650 years old.
To non-believers, this sounds like an ad hoc hypothesis. The suggestions that modern biological contaminants were sufficient to modernize the date are also ridiculous.
(Another equally famous painting, also claimed to have miraculously appeared on a cloth, cropped up in Mexico in the 16th century, "Our Lady of Guadalupe.") The case for the forged shroud is made most forcefully by Joe Nickell in his Inquest On The Shroud Of Turin, which was written in collaboration with a panel of scientific and technical experts.
The author claims that historical, iconographic, pathological, physical, and chemical evidence points to its inauthenticity.
