Might flour-power have been used create the enigmatic “Shroud” of Turin body image? A retired FMBRA flour scientist says …

Site banner: see how a simulated sweat imprint (my wet hand pressed down onto dark fabric) responds magnificently to 3D-rendering computer software (ImageJ) before and after tone-reversal (negative back to positive image). Remind you of anything? Like those supposedly “unique”  and … Continue reading
