I can accept that. . . guess I was seeing things in how I'd cite such material vs. the "less vested" approach :twisted:

The link to that History Channel special was taken down. But it's back up now. Here is the new link.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WNJPJ4JwHeE

It's 90 minutes and very fascinating and mind blowing. If you didn't believe in it before, it will make a believer out of you. All the scientists and experts in it admitted that they were baffled about how the image was formed on the Shroud of Turin, after they ruled out all conventional explanations. Even researchers that have studied the shroud for decades concluded the same, that it is totally inexplicable. They even said that in a courtroom trial, the shroud would be sufficient to prove the existence and resurrection of Jesus. These are skeptical non-religious scientists and researchers that are saying this.

The skeptics can't win on this one, because many serious skeptical scientists themselves have ruled out all conventional explanations for how the image on the shroud was produced, and cannot replicate it themselves.

Moreover, most scientists have retracted their position that the 1988 carbon dating of bits of the corner of the shroud proved that it was a forgery from the Middle Ages. The tests were flawed and the samples were contaminated because they were taken from a corner of the shroud that was restored with cloth from the Middle Ages. This was proven scientifically and many skeptics have accepted it. The documentaries go into detail about it.

This is definitely a true mystery that can be construed as hard evidence for the resurrection of Jesus. I've seen many other documentaries on the shroud as well, and they all say the same thing after interviewing many top scientists and researchers. Besides the History Channel special, the BBC and Discovery Channel documentaries concluded similarly.

Plus, basic logic infers that if the shroud image were of a man other than Jesus, then the church would not have guarded it so closely for so many centuries. So there must be a reason for them to have kept it so long as a sacred treasure. It doesn't make sense that they would do that if it were a hoax.

Either way, this is truly inexplicable, and all the top experts who have investigated the shroud seem to be in concurrence on it. See the documentaries below. They will make a believer out of you for sure.
