News from SUNY from Tor Echo blog:

imageDr. L. David Pye, dean and professor of glass science emeritus at the NYS College of Ceramics at Alfred University, presented a thought-provoking seminar entitled, “Examining The Shroud of Turin” at the Alfred State New Horizons Forum on Tuesday, Feb. 21, 2012.

Forum Director SUNY Distinguished Professor Joe Flynn noted, “This event epitomized the goals of the Forum which focus on topics which require careful inquiry from a variety of academic disciplines. Scientists, religious scholars, and historians have long debated the legitimacy of the claim that the Shroud is the actual burial cloth of the historical Jesus of Nazareth.” AU’s Dr. Pye was able to actually view the shroud in Italy, and was amazed, intrigued, and somewhat baffled by the nuances and complexities of this issue.  Information about the Shroud can be found at:

The still-evolving scientific and historical records are sometimes difficult to disentangle from the swirl of attention brought to the artifact by millions of people and numerous organizations who embrace and promote its authenticity.

This seems more like an announcement strangely rewritten in the past tense. What was said? Discussed? Answered? Left  unanswered?
