Does thermally-induced scorching of linen ALWAYS produce fluorescence under uv, rendering it invalid as a model for the Turin Shroud? Answer: most definitely NO.
This is the second instalment of a 3-part series that looks at uv-fluorescence of model scorch imprints and/or burn marks in general. See the posting immediately preceding this one for a brief introduction, stating the long-overdue need to re-evaluate a … Continue reading
Is the Shroud of Turin really just 18 years short of its 2000th birthday? SEE THIS BLOG FOR A DAILY ACERBIC OVERVIEW OF CURRENT WRANGLING ( currently 2015, Week 32)
The aim is a maximum of 15 entries per week, generally 2 per day. The primary source will be mainly the current postings and discussion on Dan Porter’s shroudstory site (a reversal of the previous oh-so genteel predator-prey relationship, ho … Continue reading
Here’s an updated version of my ‘iconoplastic’ modelling of that Turin so-called “Shroud” (probably a misnomer).
It attempts to reprise what almost certainly began life as an ingenious medieval thought experiment focused on a certain blank sheet – before receiving and enveloping the body from the Cross – Joseph of Arimathea’s linen. It in turn took … Continue reading
Yes, I bided my time yesterday, waiting for that wacky earthquake/neutron fantasy to appear somewhere with a decent comments facility. My patience was rewarded – the Independent duly obliging. This morning I placed another comment on the thread, the first … Continue reading
There’s been some misunderstanding about what I have been proposing these last 2 years, in the course of some 200 postings. That’s partly my fault – the underlying ideas have developed organically, with few summaries en route. End of self-flagellation: … Continue reading
A comprehensive new theory detailing a medieval origin for the Turin Shroud: a scorching onto linen – and human consciousness – of the last of the Knights Templar.
Update: see also the two recent postings on my other Shroud site, strawshredder.wordpress.com SUMMARY: Hypothesis: the scorch-like image on the Shroud of Turin, at least the initial Mark 1 version, was not of the crucified Jesus Christ, nor 1st century … Continue reading
A reply to Dan Porter and his Shroud of Turin associates re the significance of the Lirey Pilgrim’s Badge
Dan Porter, you make it seem as if I have confused one Geoffrey with another “completely different person, perhaps related, perhaps not” . What complete poppycock, Dan Porter. I have to say that for some time this has become a … Continue reading
