GUEST,KP BS: Alternative to Science?? (1046* d) RE: BS: Alternative to Science?? 13 Nov 12


For those of you interested in the ongoing science around the Turin Shroud, here's a page of references
Shroud Science

The radiocarbon dates, measured by 3 labs in 1988, all came out suggesting the shroud was mediaeval but that doesn't answer the question of where the image came from.

One interesting suggestion is that there was a Coronal Discharge or 'St Elmo's fire' event that you can sometimes see in thunderstorms.

Body Image Formation Based on Coronal Discharge

There doesn't seems to be anything in the research that either requires or excludes a supernatural event, so I guess we can all hang on to our preconceptions for a while yet...
