No, Mr. Barrie M. Schwortz. STURP did NOT “provide an example that future Shroud researchers can use to carefully plan their own work”. STURP showed how not to plan or execute objective, ISSUE- RELEVANT science-based research!

  Prequel (added Nov 6, 2018):  Have just discovered that my targeted criticisms of the 1978 STURP initiative were voiced way back in May 2015 on my now long-in-the-tooth      science buzz site. (That site having been started in … Continue reading

Shroud of Turin: expect a 40-point summary of final conclusions very shortly, based on my 6 years of detailed scrutiny, to say nothing of hands-on modelling of that ‘enigmatic’ body image.

Remind you of anything? Like those supposedly “unique”  and … Continue reading
