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)
No. You might want to ask the other poster that question.
You mean Science trying to solve the riddles of our past? Like those silly pyramids?
Maybe we should burn the Shroud, and blow up the pyramids, just so scientists quit wasting their time on useless information.
Or, am I misinterpreting your remark?
Where is it now?
I know where St. Peter and John Paul are but not the shrine.
>>”always believed the shroud was the real deal”>>>>>>
Same here, even when it has been in doubt, I hoped it was real. I love the idea that it is real but I do not NEED it to believe in Jesus Christ.
The DVD is also available - it should be in every household.
From the Art side
for you naysayers, at least do some research and be able to back up your naysaying with more than ignorant pontifications
The human spirit can raise it's vibrational energy at will. It can also tolerate extremely high energies. That is why the spirit can look into the face of God, but the material human cannot. Even though the spirit can raise that energy, it only does so in extreme situations. When normal human spirits do so, we call it SPONTANEOUS COMBUSTION.
Jesus, we believe, was not normal. The link between his conscious and his spirit was much stronger, and what is noted in the Bible as the 'ladder' we will use to get to heaven.
If one can accept all of the above, then it follows that Jesus was able to 'raise' his dead/dying body by raising his spiritual vibration energy level. Doing so left 'radiation' burns on the cloth.
Do your own research, I charge for that....I already know how you feel based on your scarcastic remark to me on an earlier post.
ah - no.
It was privately owned and protected for centuries.
Appreciate the correction, but I do believe that it has always been protected by Catholics...but I could be mistaken.
By 'anything', do you mean 'details' or 'concepts' ?
At 2:00 pm on WOR(NYC) channel 9 was a showing a Shroud of Turin documentary. During the program amazing supernatural peace came with a revelation of truth. To see how brutalized Christ endured for us. If I went to bed at 11:00pm as usual I would never have seen this program. This was God. Ever since I always believed the Shroud to be true cloth of Christ. Praise Jesus!
do you mean the Shroud of Turin?
If so, it's not a shrine. It's a shroud - burial cloth - and it's displayed in a church in TURIN, Italy -
For those who are unfamiliar with the Shroud - a mystery to me - Google is at your fingertips.
I've been studying, researching the Shroud for over 50 years. More and more exciting research comes out -
Doing your own study is recommenced.
Well there you go then you weren’t baptized a Cahtolic.
You get the get out Hell for free card! /smart alec
I am not a deep thinking apologetic more the lady praying for all type of Catholic (conservative).
That being said a wise man (my Preist who taught me when I came back to my faith of origin) told me once dunked (no matter what affiliation) no need for re-dunking. (is that like the no double dipping rule?)
I was double dunked.
However could not find the record of in my birth place Catholic Church.
But! The Baptist church here in town had my record and that was a blessing when going through the year of Adult Catechism with Father (who used to teach at University, not easy for me but KV sailed right through all the tests and homework laughing at me/Mom all the way)
Obama is a ‘practicing’ Muslim.
Wouldn't we all?
P.S. If Jesus was able to ‘resurrect’ , then it is likely he did spontaneously combust, and his body burnt to ashes.
Very slowly, and that ‘radiation’ left the image.
This would explain why no one could find the BODY of Jesus.
you get the last word....you have the knowledge
What is your opinion of post 28 and 40 ? I am open to all criticism.
When it came to Baptists they had to learn to no longer say "allegedly Christian church" ~ then the preacher would lean them over backwards for a full immersion AND hold them under extra long just in case.
What is fascinating about what is seen on the shroud is that it is a pixel image with a resolution 5 times higher than the best commercial laser printer and it contains 3-D information. Also, the image is not formed by any dye, ink paint or burning, as the cloth fiber itself DOES NOT CONTAIN THE IMAGE! The image is formed only on the thin layer of soapwort which was left on the surface when the cloth was washed and dried during its manufacture.
KV was baptized as an infant right away (well not so much as I had to go through the single Moms class, yes we knew we had to drink from the “other” faucet) due to his severe physical disability/health not expected to live more than a few months a year topps. (31 blessed and amazing grace years later, Glory be to God, he does save wretches like me).
But when we went Baptist Pastor Charlie (RIP) didn't want to use the Church dipping pool for fear KV would thrash and hit the mic and electrocute all.
So Pastor/plus wife, KV and Me put on swimsuits and went to our Local Spa store (RIP JIM) owner and did a jacuzzi baptism.
Nah. Doubting Thomas took care of that idea. More likely is that when life filled him again, the image was burned into the cloth.
Is it my perception this morning or does the crown of thorns look like it flipped up and appears to be the crown of a King?
Based on my re baptism, I have serious doubt's about *use to* cause it had to be after 1957, the year I was married and I had private instructions from a great priest at Saint Benedict's church, 6 mile road and John R area for those that know Detroit and Highland Park.
Once a week for several months 2 hours long and made my first confession prior to marriage....
Therefore I think your individual experience is not universal.
By the way, Saint Benedict's was one of the most beautiful church's I have ever been in...Very old and build like a cathedral.
There are a few Catholics on this forum that think they have the last word on catholic practice, but unlike the Pope they are not infallible..
Don’t take it personal goat granny.
I am sarcastic/smart alecky by nature.
And I actually have all my front teethe!
Opps good catch on my flupah of words.
