Re your Nutty Stuff Alert: Shroud of Turin & The Grey Aliens Again post, the good thing to remember is that on his website, Andrew Silverman has some important things to say about the authenticity of the shroud and how the image might have formed. I don’t agree with much of his image theory thinking, but I don’t agree with Fanti, Rogers, or you, either.
The sad thing is that he has hooked himself up with Nigel Kerner and his Grey Alien weirdness.
Did you actually listen to the Red Ice Radio podcast with Nigel Kerner and Andrew Silverman? You did warn us. But did you listen? Since it was more than an hour long I downloaded it my Blackberry so I could listen to it while driving to work. Like Linda Blair in “The Exorcist”, my Blackberry now glows in the dark, floats above the car seat and spits green slime in my face whenever I try to use it.
Is it at all possible that more than two people in the world agree with these fellows?
Here is a review of the podcast by someone named Charles Frith on his blog Punk Planning: The Turin Shroud & Unity Conciousness. So, yes, maybe there are three people (almost):
This double interview might be a little heavy. I’m not sure I fully get Nigel Kerner’s harvesting of souls hypothesis completely and his interview style is quite hard as it swings between fabulously complex and then lots of ‘if you see what I mean’. Or maybe it’s just a simple premise of Grey aliens harvesting souls and are being lower down the food chain of conciousness and thus more of a warning than a threat if taken pragmatically as omens of technology fetishism.
However it’s the Andrew Silverman part that kicks in around 15-20 minutes that blew me away. He takes us through the solid scientific evidence that the Turin Shroud wrapped a dead man who shone momentarily brighter than the sun and left the mark of his body as if the cadaver lit up a like nuclear cadaver for a nano second.
I don’t think the evidence is at all solid that Jesus “shone momentarily brighter than the sun and left the mark of his body as if the cadaver lit up a like nuclear cadaver for a nano second.” We are a long ways still from knowing how the image formed.
