imageAntonio Lombatti (pictured) on why the Shroud of Turin is fake:

The proof is in my peer-reviewed paper, if you can read Italian or medieval Latin manuscripts. Lots of claims have been around lately on the Turin Shroud and none of them underwent the evalution (sic) of scholars in a journal.

That’s a problem. So far only The Scallywag, The Independent, The Belfast Telegraph, Newstrack India and Yahoo News has picked up the story, word for word, from the Daily Mail. Apparently no one at the Mail knows Italian or Medieval Latin because that story says nothing. And a hundred or so blogs have the story, word for word, from the Mail.

Maybe Lombatti will grace us with an explanation rather than a shout down from the Ivory Tower.
