Here is another one I taped for Monday’s online update for Prophecy in the News:
These were both taped for their website and Youtube channel. Coming up in a couple weeks will be two 27 minute shows that will air primarily on the Church Channel. They will also be on their website and Youtube channel.
I will be speaking again at their conference in Colorado Springs planned for July 25-27. I will be delivering two talks: "Unholy Obsession–Hitler’s Quest to Steal the Shroud" and the second talk is called "The Shroud of Turin—God is in the Details". This presentation will cover many of the very nuanced details regarding the blood, physiology, image, art history, and historical clues that all suggest a medieval origin is untenable.
This YouTube was uploaded to YouTube just five days ago. I don’t know when is was filmed.
The comments, a couple of which are shown below, are a bit different than what we see in this blog. PITN, by the way, stands for Prophesy in the News. HERE is their website (I’m not a fan).

This video and it’s content have, to me, destroyed all credibility of PITN. Let me make sure I’m getting this right: you’re saying that the Shroud of Turin is the actual burial cloth of Jesus Christ?! . . . Please don’t tell me you’re taken in by this obvious hoax of the RCC….

How wonderful if everyone who used to be sceptical of the validity of the Shroud would take another look at the amazing scientific facts revealed through the eyes of modern equipment.
Interesting that Discovery News is featuring this video, Shroud of Turin Goes Digital, in a sidebar to a featured story about John Paul II and John XXIII being declared saint
Ray Schneider: Why is the carbon dating wrong? I don’t know. That it is wrong I am quite certain . . .
Ray is up with a recommendation on his blog, Political Brambles:
With Easter soon to come it’s appropriate to think about the Shroud of Turin and this video is hard to beat since it touches upon so many of the issues. . . .
. . . This video demonstrates the correspondence between the sudarium of Oviedo and the shroud which, in my mind at least, proves that the 1988 carbon date is wrong. Why is it wrong? I don’t know. That it is wrong I am quite certain for the shroud duplicates blood stains that are on the sudarium of Oviedo which is much older than the shroud and so both cloths were in contact with the same body.
It is a good video, produced and directed by Reuben Aaronson for The Learning Channel. It runs for about 52 minutes.
There is a brand new DVD out. It is called The Secrets of the Shroud, featuring Dr. Wayne Phillips, the leading expert on the Shroud of Turin. It includes five wonderful programs from the Women of Grace show. There are stunning slides and images of the Shroud and all the current scientific research. The cost is $25.00. Order it at http://shop.womenofgrace.com/product/1821/
Here are the shows that appeared on EWTN on the Women of Grace program:
- DVD – 1
- 10350 – Revelation of the Road: The Shroud’s Journey
- 10351 – The Shroud of Turin Research Project
- 10352 – Carbon Dating and Image Formation: Science and the Shroud
- DVD – 2
- 10353 – New Discoveries, New Theories: Science and the Shroud
- 10354 – Dynamic Duo: The Sudarium and the Shroud
I linked to these shows in September 2012: EWTN Series on the Shroud of Turin. Apparently, the first of the five programs is still available for viewing on EWTN: Revelation of the Road: The Shroud’s Journey (Program 10350) with Dr Phillips and Father Edmund Sylvia. You might want to view this first before shelling out $25.00.
Also, I found a recent Jesuit high school lecture in five parts featuring Dr. Wayne Phillips. It was uploaded to YouTube just a week ago. According to information at YouTube, J. Wayne Phillips ‘is an expert Shroud of Turin and has a degree in Shroud Studies from the Vatican Apostolorum College. He also has a medical degree from the University of Miami.
unless you are filmmaker and video journalist Dan Bell who tells us (two days) ago on his Facebook page: “I found a Shroud of Turin science museum inside a dead mall. It was a bizarre day indeed.” He is referring to the Shroud Exhibit and Museum in the White Sands Mall in Alamogordo, NM. Here is a YouTube video of his visit to the Museum. It is entitled “Bizarre Shroud of Turin Museum Inside Dead Mall.” It is about 3 minutes long. Enjoy.
However . . .
for a different perspective, see Trip Advisor, wherein one visitor to the museum wrote, “THIS IS A MUST AND SHOULD BE ON YOUR BUCKET LIST!”
Hat tips to several people including Kelly, Paulette and an old, friend, Fr. Howard for this link to the YouTube featuring Barrie. The radio interview (audio only) with Barrie starts at the 1:16:00 so you may want to set the slider to that point. And no, the picture of the paratroopers firing at who-knows-what has nothing to do with the interview:
Here is a short summary from “Malc” on a site called The One Truth, a site also linking to the video (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aoaxxNf7qdA#t=4619)
In the latter half, researcher and photographer Barrie Schwortz talked about the Shroud of Turin, said to be the burial cloth of Jesus, and reacted to new research that connects the Shroud’s creation to an ancient earthquake around 32 AD. According to the latest researchers’ theory, the powerful quake could have released neutron emissions that might have interacted with the fibers of the linen burial cloth, inducing the chemical reaction that created the unique facial image. Their research is problematic in several ways, including an overestimation of the magnitude strength of quakes in the Dead Sea, he noted. Further, the radiation hypothesis (which has previously been proposed to explain the Shroud numerous times) was explored by (the late) Raymond Rogers, a scientist at Los Alamos National Laboratory, and he did not find evidence for it in his testing of samples.
While scientific tests have shown that the Shroud is neither a painting or a photograph, it still remains a mystery even after all the chemistry, physics, and spectrometry that have been applied, Schwortz remarked, adding that perhaps as technology continues to advance, new methods of testing may yield answers. He also shared details about his personal experiences studying and photographing the Shroud, and how his faith and religious views were affected by it.
