Comment on Freethought Should Be Accurate and Factual

domenico adds an important comment to the Freethought Should Be Accurate and Factual posting:

imageOnly a brief note to the claim that the Shroud shows a “man about six feet tall, which would make this “Jesus” a Goliath by first-century standards”. This claim is from Nickell’s books..

Does the writer know that in Jericho, Israel, there is a famous tomb from Second Temple Period known as “Goliath Tomb” in wich skeletons height 1,8 m. were found (one of them was 1,88)?

That is 5’11” and 6’2” respectively. Nickell writes nonsense.

  1. Has anyone read Nickell’s book where he claims to recreate the image (albeit not with as much technical detail)?
