The latest YouTube about the Shroud of Turin (yesterday) proposes yet another peculiar theory on how the images were formed. Is anyone counting?
There are a couple of amusing details about this one. One is the photo credits: 1) Jospeph of Arimathea for providing the 8 X 2 Cubit Shroud, 2) Nicodemus for the myrrhs and aloes 3) God for the Light, 4) Barrie Schwortz for taking the photo of the photo in Rome (sic) in 1978. The second is a a promo for free Baptisms. There is probably a $20.00 Shipping and Handling Fee.
Here is part of the synopsis for How Image was Formed On Turin Shroud Part 1 Video. The last paragraph below says it all:
This video explains in part how the image was formed on the Shroud of Turin The last thing Jesus drank before dying was vinegar, which is 4 to 18% acetic acid by mass. This means his sweat will contain a higher amount of acetic acid which will be useful in the next 3 days to convert cellulose to cellulose acetate. This was used on early film plates to make a photographic negative image.
Think of the tomb as the inside of a big camara. The film plate is the 8 X 2 Cubit Cloth. The Image that will be photographed will be the body of Jesus on both sides. Someone shined some very bright white light in the tomb at a very precise moment in time.
. . . Now you have combined the necessary elements to make a 3-Dimensional film plate and it will be covered in cellulose acetate in less than 3 days.
After a few days the myrrh will harden and form a 3-D body mold of Jesus. It will also cover all the blood stains and preserve them. Myrrh is a tree resin, the blood from a tree. When myrrh is mixed with acetic acid for a period of over 20 hours it will convert into cellulose acetate.
It is not worse than most.
