Carbon-dating has judged the linen Shroud of Turin to be a 13th century creation requiring seven centuries and modern photography not only to discover but to label a fake. In May, saying the shroud bears the image "written in blood" of a crucified man, Pope Benedict XVI effectively declared the relic the burial shroud of Jesus. Despite the comfort fragmentary carbon-dating has given doubters — prudence, faith, and common sense align with the pope.
Come to think of it, not just with the Shroud but with Stephen Hawking’s newest book in which he explains that all of creation can be explained without the need for God; the law of gravity being enough.
