The Turin Shroud Mystery

30 Dec

A Channel 4 program in UK tonight spent a whole hour to say that the carbon testing of the Turin Shroud proving it to be a fake created in the Middle Ages, was flawed because the sample taken was contaminated with a cotton repair made in the 16th Century. It came to the conclusion that […]
