July 19, 2014 Leave a comment

imageThis tour is being led by Msgr. Gregory A. Gier of The Cathedral of the Holy Family of Nazareth in Tulsa, Oklahoma.  Click here or on the image for an online brochure. 

This tour seems to be specifically for parishioners of the cathedral:

. . . parishioners are invited to join Msgr. Gier on an unforgettable pilgrimage to Turin to see the Shroud, then on to Florence, Assisi, Siena, and finally Rome.  Msgr. Gier will offer Holy Mass daily at many of the important churches we will visit, including St. Peter’s Basilica in Rome.  The dates are April 19 – 28, 2015.

Comment Promoted: A Misalignment Between the Left and Right Shoulders

July 18, 2014 16 comments

imageThomas, in a comment, wonders:

. . . I’ve noticed the past few days that there appears to be a misalignment between the left and right shoulders / neck region. In particular, one side is lower than the other as if there was a dislocation. This corresponds with the arm positions on the frontal image ie. the right shoulder is set lower, as is the right arm.

This would seem to be an argument in favour of the image being generated from a real human (dead) body.

Thoughts?

Devastating News for the Mona Lisa? Is She or He a Photograph?

July 18, 2014 3 comments

clip_image001The blog is called La pagina di Littleflower (The page of Littleflower). Thanks to Google Translation, we can read What links the Shroud of Turin to Leonardo’s Mona Lisa. It was posted yesterday:

The Shroud and the Mona Lisa contain many common points such as to generate suspicion that they are actually two separate parts of a single work.

The Shroud and the Mona Lisa not only contain graphic parts that seem designed specifically to be overlapped with each other, but they also contain references to correctly display and overlay.

And this,

Personally I do not believe that the creation of the Shroud is the result of a specific commission proposed by the Savoy but I think the Shroud of Leonardo was ready because it was the result of previous experiments tending to prove the falsity and the easy reproducibility of such a relic.

In the realization of his Shroud Leonardo, however, takes a number of precautions so that the truth will emerge in the future, in order to prepare or modify the Mona Lisa so that superimposing the two images it is quite unobjectionable that the achievement is yours.

And it was photographic. Yes, apparently so if you believe Littleflower. Forget the shroud, the implications for the Mona Lisa are devastating.

What has Joe Nickell Been Up To Lately?

Lately? This page at CSI offers a quick review over the past year or so. I see nothing related to the Shroud. My favorite is his investigation of the Florida Skunk Ape. Here is a picture of him taking a picture of nothing in order to prove that skunk apes do not exist. I think I see an alligator just behind him about to eat him. Or is that just a pareidolia formed by swamp grass?

He writes in CSI’s Skeptical Inquirer:

Behavior. The Skunk Ape’s behavior is typically similar to that of Bigfoot everywhere. It is frequently seen standing among trees, crossing a road (and occasionally being hit by a car), rummaging in garbage, drinking water or catching fish from a lake or stream, visiting campsites, standing to peer into windows, and so on. It typically vocalizes by growling, grunting, grumbling, or producing “stressed breathing” and, at least once, “clicking sounds,” among others (although at times there is no sighting and so no certainty that the sound was that of a Skunk Ape) (Jenkins 2010, 111, 117, 123).

Nutellagraph? Did STURP Check for Nutella and Butter Knife Strokes?

July 17, 2014 73 comments

David Goulet: “Try Vegemite next time. never waste Nutella — even for science.”

Chesterbelloc:  “Colin, I hope you’re eating at least some of that Nutella. That stuff
is too good just to use for experiments.”

imageSeriously, you do need to read, It seems so obvious now (why the Man on the Turin Shroud has bony fingers and no thumbs). The image is NOT a photograph. It’s an ‘impactograph’. on Colin Berry’s Science Buzz blog. If at some time you think the posting has drifted down memory lane (interesting, anyway), scroll down to “Late addition: Tuesday 23:00.” From there, read on.

There is this:

Have just spotted this quote from Professor Giulio Fanti that he made in the course of an interview with shroudstory.com regular "Louis", or to give the latter his full name (supplied on that posting): Louis C. de Figueiredo

"Radiation has been proposed as the source of the body image because we know that the image also resides where body-cloth contact is not possible, for example in the zone between the nose and the cheek or between the hands and the belly, therefore I agree with it."

and this . . .

Second point: image “also resides between hands and belly”?

Really? The predominant impression one gets from looking at positive images is surely the low image intensity in and around the crossed hands, suggesting in this instance that tenting did occur (or was tolerated), whether the linen was underneath or on top of the subject.

(emphasis by Berry)

imageExperiments are always useful even with PhotoShop and finger paint of sorts. Maybe there is a completely new reason why there are no thumbs, even a reason that Colin has not imagined.

The Man of the Shroud has Horns?

July 17, 2014 8 comments

A find by Joe Marino.  You may want to watch the first 3 minutes of this new video. It is up to you if you want to watch any more of it as the creator of the video argues that the man of the shroud has horns, which we all know is a water stain. He goes on and on and on the explain the ramifications of this and compare the shroud picture to the history of Satanic worship.

The creator of this video writes on YouTube:

imageYears ago, I explained the truth behind the mask of lies about the Shroud of Turin. I made this video as a research device for those who want to grasp and understand the truth behind the story.

Please watch the entire video before you jump to conclusions or ask questions. I hope you enjoy.
