Tersio makes an important point

MUST READ: Lifted from a comment elsewhere:

What all skeptics do not notice is the fact that a forger only fakes something either preexisting or something which is known throughout the history. He never will fake something which was invented by him, because this is nonsense at all. Both conditions are not satisfied in the case of the Shroud of Turin, because neither the New Testament nor the apocryphal writings mention a single line about the existence of a cloth with the dorsal and frontal images of Jesus’ body. Christian tradition, on the contrary, mentions a cloth with only Jesus’ face (the Veronica veil). Before the Middle Age, nothing is mentioned about it, as well. Why will a supposed forger be at the same time so skilled in order to make such an astonishing masterpiece (which even today is very difficult-if not impossible- to copy) and so silly in order to ‘fake’ something unknown at his time?

  1. Hi Shroudies,
    Tersio point is 100 % valid. The shroud is neither Forged nor a Copy. It is a miracle, to tell the Humanity, what God Almighty can do and lame science has still to prove, the scientific action of God Almighty. Pray to the living Almighty God, and He will guide you to understand the scientific phenomena. Why Almighty God preserved this image, to tell the Truth about the Holy Christ of History.
    And correct the story of Holy Christ of Faith.

  2. Tersio, the logic of your argument is incorrect. The Shroud cannot be forged because there was no mention of it in biblical texts and therefore would be unique?
    What is the evidence that yields that conclusion? Your suggestion?
    It is clearly a post first century creation. Some time post the year 1000. The fact that monestaries and churches would “forge” artifacts is not and was not new.
    This is just one of them.
