I find the Shroud of Turin and all the speculation, myth and conjecture surrounding it among the most intriguing things in all of Christendom. At a minimum this is an extremely old religious artifact that people have been venerating for hundreds of years. It has survived wars, fires, water damage, and carbon dating. At most, this is the actual burial cloth of Jesus Christ himself that was imprinted with his image at the moment that he was resurrected from the dead by God the Father. Some dubious historians have even claimed it could be the burial shroud of Jacques de Molay, the last Grand Master of the Knights Templar.

. . . Several years ago I would have said that I have Shroud of Turin faith. On good days I’m about 70% certain that Jesus is God and died for my sins. On bad days I’m maybe 20% sure.

Today, I might tell you that on good days, I’m 90% sure that there is no god and on bad days I’m only 50% sure there is no god.
