Ray rogers shroud of turin carbon dating
To non-believers, this sounds like an ad hoc hypothesis. The suggestions that modern biological contaminants were sufficient to modernize the date are also ridiculous.A weight of 20th century carbon equaling nearly two times the weight of the Shroud carbon itself would be required to change a 1st century date to the 14th century (see It may interest skeptics to know that many people of faith believe that there is scientific evidence which supports their belief in the shroud's authenticity.The radiocarbon date was thus not valid for determining the true age of the Shroud.” In a press release earlier this week, Rogers stated, “The radiocarbon sample has completely different chemical properties than the main part of the Shroud relic.
For his work, Mc Crone was awarded the American Chemical Society's Award in Analytical Chemistry in 2000.
The author claims that historical, iconographic, pathological, physical, and chemical evidence points to its inauthenticity.
