Yahoo Answers Not So Sharp when it comes to the Shroud of Turin

This appeared in Yahoo Answers just three days ago. Obviously, The_Doc hasn’t checked lately . . . like five years or so. The rest of the answers were worse.

  • The shroud of turin is a large piece of cloth with an imprint of a crucified human being on it. Many people believe the imprint is Jesus and that the shroud (cloth) was the shroud that covered Jesus when he was crucified and put in the tomb.
    For a while people believed it was a hoax but recent studies prove otherwise. They were capable of the most recent and most accurate form of dating (radiocarbon dating) to prove that it originates during a time period where Jesus would have died. Using modern forensic science they were capable of tracing pollen on the shroud back to Jeruselum.
    One scientist found compounds on the shroud that was similiar to a type of paint, how-ever the other scientists who researched it debunked his theories by finding many other more reliable explanations than ‘paint’.

    Its a pretty amazing mystery.
    The Shroud of Turin is a centuries old linen cloth that bears the image of a crucified man. A man that millions believe to be Jesus of Nazareth. Is it really the cloth that wrapped his crucified body, or is it simply a medieval forgery, a hoax perpetrated by some clever artist? No one knows. But modern science has completed hundreds of thousands of hours of detailed study and intense research on the Shroud. It is, in fact, the single most studied artifact in human history!

    Like another said, it is a medieval forgery by the Church to make people think that it is actually the burial cloth of Jesus Christ. That is all you ever need know about it. It has no mystical properties. It is not holy, and it is not the real burial cloth of Jesus.

    The Shroud of Turin is the cloth that Mary used to cover Jesus’s body after he was put in the tomb. This was very common back then. The cloth has an imprinted blood stain from jesus’s face on it. So whatever the stain looks like, that’s what jesus looked like.
    God bless

    I have listened to much of what has been studied regarding the Shroud, and I believe there is a good chance it is the authentic burial cloth of Jesus Christ. The more I hear, the more I am convinced.

    A joke that Da Vinci played on Christians. He used his own face for the shroud.

One thought on “Yahoo Answers Not So Sharp when it comes to the Shroud of Turin”

  1. It’s laughable, yet sad how misinformed people are on this subject.This subject being the Shroud of Turin, not probably, but the most important historical relic of all time.It baffles me that so many people, considering what this Shroud may mean to all mankind, do not take the time to study it further, to enlighten themselfs on the facts and wonderment of this most amazing icon.
