So what is controversial?

December 3, 2012

imageOverall, this is a fairly good, understandable overview, What is radiocarbon dating? in World News Australia:

Other high profile projects include the dating of the Turin Shroud to the medieval period, the dating of the Dead Sea Scrolls to around the time of Christ, and the somewhat controversial dating of the spectacular rock art at Chauvet Cave to c.38,000 calBP (c.32,000 BP) – thousands of years earlier than expected.

    I’m agnostic and very open for any proof of a deity or afterlife.

    The Shroud of Turin, despite the scientific analysis, remains one of the strongest arguments for Christ’s resurection. It’s hard to claim it is a forgery,when today’s technology can’t duplicate it.

    The argument I have against it are two fold. One being that it would seem that the shroud would have covered Christ quite a while after he expired. You would think the resurection would have occured instantly at his death on the cross.

    My other argument is if Christians believe all saved Christians are resurected to heaven, than why aren’t there millions of similiar shrouds around?
