Skip to comments.Shroud of Turin a 'radiation photo' of resurrection?
Posted on 09/05/2010 9:33:27 AM PDT by NYer
Scientists are building the case that the image of a crucified man on the Shroud of Turin was created by radiation that emanated from the body itself, a theory remarkably supportive of the traditional resurrection account that is central to Christian theology.
A scientific paper co-authored by attorney and historian Mark Antonacci and physicist Arthur Lind argues that the image of the crucified man in Shroud of Turin might constitute what amounts to a photograph taken at the instant Jesus' body transformed as he rose from the dead.
Jerome Corsi's "The Shroud Codex" is a thriller of faith and action. Get it autographed at WND Superstore!
In the paper, "Particle Radiation from the Body," Antonacci's and Lind's argument centers around the 29 unique or unusual features that scientists over the past four decades have found on the Shroud's body image and fiber.
For instance, the authors noted the Shroud's frontal and dorsal body images are "encoded with the same amount of intensity, independent of any pressure or weight from the body," such that the bottom part of the cloth that bore all the weight of the crucified man's supine body is not encoded with a greater amount of intensity than the frontal image.
"Radiation coming from the body would not only explain this feature, but also the left/right and light/dark reversals found on the cloth's frontal and dorsal body images," the authors note.

"This means that the source of light does not originate outside of the body, the cloth or the tomb, but with the body itself," they write. "The weave of the inner part of the cloth containing the frontal and dorsal images is note even part of the distinctive images, which they too, would have been, if the light came from anywhere outside the body."
Not this crap again...
Here’s my theory about the Shroud of Turin. Long ago, an atheist made a joke: “How do you make Christendom look like a parade of gullible idiots?”
The Shroud of Turin was the punchline.
This comment is out of bounds- why not dispute the scientific evidence if this is your position.
Not much of a joke since athheists think we Christians are gullible idiots anyway, with or without the Shroud of Turin.
not sure what being Catholic or not being Catholic has to do with the subject of the shroud. I’ve also always believed the shroud was the real deal.
Instead of insults why not refute their scientific findings? Can you?
If your theory had any validity, then it would be a simple matter for you or some comedic atheist, to EXACTLY REPRODUCE the Shroud of Turin today.
Can you do so?
Has anything in the bible ever been proven wrong?
I don’t think this is a ‘new’ theory on how the Shroud of Turin was created. It sounds more like acknowledgment that the original theory was true.
Has me rethinking my plans about donating my body to the Med School.
I think I would like to remain whole.
Not “practicing” Catholic anymore.
Not to be nit picky but if you were baptized and confirmed you can’t unCatholic that sistah.
But you can not practice being Catholic.
Just my 2 cents...don’t want to start a Dr.Eckelburg/Quix and friends religeous was on this thread.
The colored bold font might trigger a migraine.
Hey the scientists don’t see it as a “Catholic thang”.
I would eat lunch with an athiest before I would an anti Catholic anyday.
Better manners. : )
(very clever IMO)
