My checklist of key criteria that need to be reproduced in modelling the Shroud image mechanism – and the extent to which thermal imprinting (“scorching by direct contact”) could be claimed to meet those criteria
The previous posting here expressed my somewhat jaundiced view of the criteria set out in the Enigma Challenge (see previous post). They were supposed to represent a consensus view, at least of those who attended a particular symposium in Valencia. … Continue reading
Seven short and simple answers to the Shroud of Turin Enigma Challenge – and a plea for the reporting of real science…
It’s now three months we are told since David Rolfe, celebrated documentary maker turned media science expert, issued his challenge to Richard Dawkins re the Shroud of Turin ( “If you’re right about your atheism, then how do you explain … Continue reading
Shroud of Turin: one man’s scrutiny and interpretation of what he calls “clack” (i.e. dribbles of reddish-brown pigment) in real time
“Clack” is the term I have coined for the reddish- brown puddles, trickles and smudges on the Shroud of Turin. Some describe them as blood, even though their uv/visible spectrum is atypical of blood, causing the late Alan Adler to … Continue reading
I need a name for this, and other similar features on the Shroud that have prematurely (in my view) been labelled as “blood”, despite the everlasting strong red or red-brown colour. This particular stain is handy – reminding one there … Continue reading
Shroud Scope 10: my very own gallery of 20 close-up views of the Shroud – all lightly photo-edited for optimised colour-differentiation
Note added October 7, 2016 This posting from some 4 years ago is one of my most visited, and indeed I use it myself quite often when needing, as is often the case, to differentiate between blood and body image … Continue reading
Shroud Scope 9: how simple photo-editing may help resolve controversial issues regarding the blood and body images
I shall start by posting an image that I obtained yesterday. I think, I hope, that at least some visitors to my site agree that it is a unique picture for the light it throws on the blood versus body … Continue reading
I’ve just received a long comment (see below) on my “Sorry Mr.Rogers” posting from Dr. Heimburger (whom I shall now refer to more informally as Thibault) . It is not so much directed at the specifics of what I said … Continue reading
