The latest Forbes/Science article by Kristina Killgrove is headlined: Mysteries Of The Black Death, Shroud Of Turin, And Origins of Early Americans Solved With DNA
Solved? She had written:
Of course, since the shroud has been recognized since the Middle Ages as a possible religious relic, it has been handled and moved about for centuries. There is unfortunately nothing in the new research to suggest a Medieval origin for the shroud and subsequent handling by people over the centuries is unreasonable. The question of whether the shroud is indeed a 1st century AD artifact or a Medieval artifact is not solved by the new analysis.
The question of the origin of the Shroud of Turin may yet be solved in our lifetimes, particularly as DNA analysis is getting more reliable, faster, less expensive, and less destructive. But I suspect that there will always be believers on both sides of the authentication argument, no matter what the results show.
She didn’t say solved.
