Never forget heat CONVECTION (especially you who proselytise radiation models of the Shroud of Turin)
I’m rather fortunate to be just a few hundred yards from the place in the picture. Yes, I’m on the Med, and we’ve been blessed with clear blue skies and sunshine the last few days, but the air is cool … Continue reading
Time maybe to re-think the received wisdom about the entire Shroud image being “highly superficial”?
Stop press: this posting of mine, probably the last for a while, possibly the VERY LAST, unless or until the Shroudosphere sees a major significant new development, has been described on The Other Site as a “better posting, perhaps his … Continue reading
Guest posting from Hugh Farey (yipee – another science bod!): here’s a snapshot of his current studies of scorching and uv fluorescence.
One does not have to be acquainted with “Shroudology” for very long to pick up the received ‘doctrines’ (I hesitate to call it received wisdom). Prominent among those doctrines is the mantra that the Shroud image can’t possibly be a … Continue reading
Links to my immediate three-part response to Thibault Heimburger’s critique of the scorch hypothesis
Thibault’s critique (with an artistic touch or two…) My response in three separate instalments; Part 1 Link Part 2 Link Part 3 Link Given that’s quite a slug of information and argument/rebuttal there. I guess some kind of summary … Continue reading
Response to Paolo Di Lazzaro’s theorising (unfinished business from February) under the title: “Colin Berry’s idea is untenable, and heat cannot produce a superficial coloration”. PDL: “Let’s approach the basic elementary physics that explain why the idea of Berry is … Continue reading
Doh! I can think of only 19 reasons why the Shroud image was made by thermal imprinting (“scorching”) onto linen from a heated effigy
Yup, only 19 reasons why the Shroud image was scorched onto linen, using a heated effigy of a naked man as template (or, more probably, an assembly of more manageable ‘spare-part’ -effigies – one for the head, one for torso, … Continue reading
Did John Jackson really demolish scorching as a mechanism? Maybe someone could explain to me how (in simple terms)
This comment has recently appeared on The Other Site: September 8, 2012 at 9:10 pm | #3 It is well known fact that Dr Jackson et al. confirmed way back in the early 80′s, that scourching a linen to conform … Continue reading
