Douglas V. Gibbs at Political Pistachio writes in a posting entitled, Some Scientists Claim Shroud of Turin is Authentic:
Once again the Shroud of Turin is in the news, after some Italian scientists claim it may be the real deal.
The Shroud of Turin is a fake, and one must only refer to the Bible to know this.
- Luke 24:12: But Peter arose and ran to the tomb, and stooping down, he saw the linen cloths lying by themselves;
- John 20:6-7: Then Simon Peter came, following him, and went into the tomb; and he saw the linen cloths lying there, and the handkerchief that had been around His head, not lying with the linen cloths but folded together and placed by itself.
We have only been studying the shroud for 110 years or so and intently since the 1970s; it is amazing that anyone might think the Bible has been ignored.
