Shroud of Turin

Discussion of Christianity and other religious systems. How can we explain our faith to Christians? How can you merge your faith in Jesus with your belief in the metaphysical?

Anyone else wonder about the shroud of Turin? we had half of an RE lesson on it and it is probably one of the most amazing things in the whole of Christianity.I hate it.It really annoys me. What do other people think?

I feel it is a fake. If a piece of cloth were to be laid over someone's face the face would be distorted when the cloth is flattened out. The shroud however, is not. The arms also are not in a natural position (hands too low on body for the elbows being bent as they are).

I also feel that people who want to believe in something will.

I saw a TV show about this just yesterday, seemed convincing. They had a forensic scientist create a 3D model from the cloth etc. Apparantly its recently been accepted that the carbon dating that asserted it as a fake from between 1200->1300, was actually contaminated with cotton from a repair done in 1600. Problem is now it has been stored in a box which had been treated with a pesticide which could have contaminated the rest of it now.
