I do not claim to know exactly what the Turin Shroud is but I am as sure as anyone can be that it is not a medieval fake. Through the documentaries I have made I have come to know a lot about it and the sense of injustice – on behalf of the Man on the Shroud – that this has engendered is what has brought me here. Excluding the suspect C14 test done nearly 25 years ago, any rational assessment of the evidence will conclude that the man depicted is the crucified Jesus of Nazareth and the blood on it is his. But the presence of that blood, now that science can detect and do so much with it, may have been the reason the Vatican effectively sabotaged the C14 test and has subsequently denied all further scientific investigation.
Do take the time to explore the Crowdfunding Campaign at Indiegogo I found it very informative.
