Paper by Kelly Kearse Uploaded to Academia.edu

Yesterday, I received an email. “Dear Dan,” wrote what I can only presume was a caring and thoughtful computer:

You recently read the paper “Turin Shroud, Resurrection and Science: One View of the Cathedral”. A new related paper was just uploaded to Academia that I thought you would be interested in. It is called ” The Shroud of Turin, the Relics of Jesus, and Eucharistic Miracles: The Significance of Type AB blood by Kelly Kearse

The abstract reads:

Various relics ascribed to have been in physical contact with Jesus have been evaluated for the presence of blood, including the Tunic of Argenteuil, the Sudarium of Oviedo, and most famously, the Shroud of Turin. Congruence was reported for certain bloodstain patterns that overlap between relics, suggesting that they may have been associated with the same person. Interestingly, in all cases the blood type was found to be AB, which has also been described for certain Eucharistic miracles. Here, we discuss the theological and scientific significance of shared blood type and comment on the scientific validity of these findings.

Indeed, I was interested. I remember that I had the pleasure of meeting Kelly at the St. Louis conference in 2014.

  1. La demostración de la autenticidad de la Sábana Santa y de la Resurrección de Jesús de Nazaret fue demostrada de manera IRREFUTABLE por el Dr.Gilbert Lavoie con su trabajo:

    “Turin Shroud: a medical forensic study of its blood marks and imagen”

    http://www.acheiropoietos.info/proceedings/LavoieWeb.pdf

    que presentó en el “International Workshop on the

    Scientific approach to the Acheiropoietos Images”, ENEA Frascati, Italy, 4-6 May 2010

    Ha llovido mucho desde entonces y nadie podrá encontrar NINGÚN comentario al mismo, salvo los míos y una sumarísima reseña de Hug Farey, por más que lo busque.

    (10/12/18)

    Existen multitud de Organizaciones de Sindonología en el Mundo, ¿cómo es posible que ni una sola se halla hecho eco del trabajo del Dr.Lavoie?

    La explicación es sencilla, han pasado de SERVIR a la Sábana a SERVIRSE de la Sábana.

    “No podéis servir a Dios y al Dinero.” Mateo 6-24

    Han hecho de la Sábana Santa un Gran Negocio:

    Notoriedad, Conferencias, Charlas, TV, Revistas, Boletines, Artículos, Libros, Suscripciones, Donativos,etc.

    [Me refiero en todo momento a las Organizaciones de Sindonología.

    No me refiero nunca a los investigadores independientes que bien de manera aislada o en pequeños grupos según el tema objeto de su investigación realizaron y realizan una magnífica labor en busca de la Verdad.]

    Yo también demuestro de manera IRREFUTABLE por un camino distinto al del Dr.Gilbert Lavoie la autenticidad de la Sábana Santa en mis últimos post:

    Y resuelvo el Enigma de la distancia sin imagen entre la impronta frontal y la impronta dorsal del cuerpo de Jesús de Nazaret:

    The demonstration of the authenticity of the Shroud and of the Resurrection of Jesus of Nazareth was demonstrated in an unforgettable way by Dr. Gilbert Lavoie with his work:

    “Turin Shroud: a medical forensic study of its blood marks and image”

    http://www.acheiropoietos.info/proceedings/LavoieWeb.pdf

    that he presented at the “International Workshop on the

    Scientific approach to the Acheiropoietos Images “, ENEA Frascati, Italy, 4-6 May 2010

    It has rained a lot since then and no one can find ANY comments to it, except mine and a very brief review of Hug Farey, no matter how hard he looks for it.

    (10/12/18)

    There are many Sindonology Organizations in the World, how is it possible that not a single one is echoing the work of Dr. Lavoie?

    The explanation is simple, they have gone from SERVING the Shroud to SERVING the Shroud.

    “You can not serve God and Money.” Matthew 6-24

    They have made the Shroud a Great Business:

    Notoriety, Conferences, Talks, TV, Magazines, Bulletins, Articles, Books, Subscriptions, Donations, etc.

    [I refer at all times to the Sindonology Organizations.

    I never refer to independent researchers who, either in isolation or in small groups according to the subject matter of their research, did and do a magnificent job in search of the Truth.]

    I also demonstrate IRREFUTABLE in a different way from Dr. Gilbert Lavoie the authenticity of the Shroud in my last post:

    https://lasabanaylosescepticos.blogspot.com/2018/12/como-demostrar-en-menos-de-5-segundos.html

    And I solve the Enigma of the distance without an image between the frontal imprint and the dorsal imprint of the body of Jesus of Nazareth:

  2. Dr. Kelly Kearse’s paper is as always worth reading nevertheless I don’t agree that in this kind of particular context it is not correct concluding that the Shroud of Turin and the Sudarium of Oviedo covered the same man on the basis of blood type.

    Although from a scientific point of view this is essentially true based ONLY on AB blood type, we have to consider that there is a match between the shape of the bloodstains of the two relics namely in the occipital areas, and this did not happen by chance.
    This finding is explained by the fact that the Sudarium covered the head and face of Jesus while he was hanging dead on the cross then ithis cloth was removed before Jesus body was wrapped in the Shroud in the tomb.
    It is my opinion that as extraneous human DNA exists in both relics using molecular biology to relate blood samples from the two relics will not provide reliable data.
    The fact that blood samples from both relics typed AB,, control areas did not type AB and there is a match between bloodstains, are enough data to permit a reasonable conclusion that both relics did indeed contact with the same Man (whose name was Jesus) even not considering the historical tradition linked to the relics.
    This is not a question of faith it is rather a logical conclusion based on scientific studies.

  3. La amistad de Leonardo da Vinci con Luca Pacioli, autor de“De Divina proportione” y para cuyo libro dibujó “El Hombre de Vitrubio” tuvo mucho que ver,si no todo, con la Sábana Santa, de ahí el témino de “Divina”.

    Escribia el genial Leonardo lo siguiente:

    Hay tres clases de personas
    Aquellos que ven.
    Aquellos que ven cuando se les muestra.
    Aquellos que no ven.

    Comentando con mi queridísima hija Susana sobre un post que publiqué el 8/12/18 bajo el título “El Salvator Mundi” de Leonardo da Vinci y la Sábana Santa” me hizo unas agudísimas observaciones:

    En la comparativa que realizaron Lynn Picknett y Clive, siendo muy meritoria y demostrando que el rostro del Salvator Mundi es una fiel copia del rostro de Jesús de Nazaret cuya impronta se encuentra en la Sábana Santa, presenta las ceja a distinta altura y ello debe explicarse.

    La Poderosa Muerte no pudo con la belleza, serenidad y majestad de Jesús cuyo rostro pintó Leonardo en el Salvator Mundi. ¡Impresionante!.

    Y en “menos que canta un gallo” mi queridísima Susana realizó esta “flipante” foto en la que superpone la impronta del rostro de Jesús de Nazaret al rostro del Salvator Mundi.

    https://lasabanaylosescepticos.blogspot.com/2019/05/el-verdadero-rostro-de-jesus-de-nazaret_21.html

    ¡¡Perfecto!!. ¡¡El rostro del Salvator Mundi no se modifica en absoluto, con la excepción de las manchas de sangre que aporta la impronta de la Sábana!!

    Bueno, un experto advertirá una muy sutil diferencia, el rostro andrógino del Salvator Mundi se “masculiniza” al superponer la impronta especular de la impronta de la Sábana.

    Es una lástima que el sistema no me permita poner el vídeo del que procede la foto que muestro, el vídeo se carga pero no funciona. 
    Porque es un espectáculo impresionante el ver como la impronta del rostro de la Sábana se va intregando al milímetro en el rostro del Salvator Mundi de Leonardo hasta llegar al resultado que se ve en la foto que muestro.

    The friendship of Leonardo da Vinci with Luca Pacioli, author of “De Divina proportione” and for whose book he drew “El Hombre de Vitrubio” had much to do, if not all, with the Holy Shroud, hence the term “Divina” .

    The great Leonardo wrote the following:

    There are three kinds of people

    Those who see.

    Those who see when they are shown

    Those who do not see

    Commenting with my dearest daughter Susana about a post I published on 12/12/18 under the title “The Salvator Mundi” by Leonardo da Vinci and the Shroud “he made some very sharp observations:

    In the comparison made by Lynn Picknett and Clive Prince, being very meritorious and showing that the face of Salvator Mundi is a faithful copy of the face of Jesus of Nazareth whose imprint is on the Shroud, it presents the eyebrow at different heights and this must be explained.

    Mighty Death could not with the beauty, serenity and majesty of Jesus whose face Leonardo painted in Salvator Mundi. Awesome!.

    And in “unless a rooster sings” my dearest Susana made this “flip-side” photo in which she superimposes the imprint of the face of Jesus of Nazareth on the face of Salvator Mundi.

    https://lasabanaylosescepticos.blogspot.com/2019/05/el-verdadero-rostro-de-jesus-de-nazaret_21.html

    Perfect!!. The face of Salvator Mundi is not modified at all, with the exception of the bloodstains that the stamp of the Shroud brings!

    Well, an expert will notice a very subtle difference, the androgynous face of the Salvator Mundi is “masculinized” by superimposing the specular imprint of the stamp of the Shroud.

    It is a pity that the system does not allow me to put the video from which the photo that I showed comes, the video is loaded but it does not work.

    Because it is an impressive sight to see how the imprint of the face of the Shroud is intrepido to the millimeter in the face of Leonardo’s Salvator Mundi until you get to the result you see in the photo I show.

  4. Viendo el impresionante resultado que obtuvo mi queridísima hija Susana con el estudio del Salvator Mundi:

    La insté a que hiciéramos (hiciera) algo similar con el Hombre de Vitruvio, del que ya escribí un post el 3/7/10 mostrando la imágene comparativa que realicé:

    En ella ya se aprecian claramente las concordancias entre el hombre de la Sábana Santa y El Hombre de Vitruvio.

    Así que insté a Susana que hiciéramos (hiciera) algo similar a lo que había realizado con el Salvator Mundi.

    Encontró un muy impresionante vídeo de Jairo Parra*, un muy experto en El Hombre de Vitruvio que el lector interesado no debe perderse, “20 cosas que no sabías del Hombre de Vitruvio”

    Jairo Parra describe 20 errores graves (queridos por Leonardo) que no se corresponden con la Divina Proporción o Divina Sección Aurea que se les supone, además de introducir semi-escondidos signos que revelan mensajes.

    Ahora bien, Jairo Parra no lo relaciona con El Hombre de la Sábana y parece ignorar que Leonardo de Vinci la estudió intensamente teniendo certeza de su autenticidad.

    ( me pondré en contacto con él en cuanto terminemos su estudio).

    Así vemos que El Hombre de Vitruvio al igual que El Hombre de la Sábana:

    1/ Tienen las manos en posición anómala ocultando los dedos pulgares.

    2/ Tienen el brazo derecho más acortado y el hombro izquierdo más descendido, signos clínicos de luxación/es.

    Sugiero al lector que vea El hombre de Vitruvio utilizando el dibujo que aparece en Wikipedia:
    https://es.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hombre_de_Vitruvio

    Es una imagen de un tamaño enorme que permite hacer perfectamente mediciones.

    Leonardo era un profundo y sincero creyente, sintiendo acercase la mierte pidió un sacerdote para confesarse y recibir la Extremaunción.

    En su libro “Aforismos” puede leerse su profunda Fe.

    Les seguiré contando según vayamos avanzando……

    Seeing the impressive result that my beloved daughter Susana obtained with the study of Salvator Mundi:

    I urged that we do something similar with the Vitruvian Man, of which I already wrote a post on 3/7/10 showing the comparative image I made:

    In it, the concordances between the man of the Shroud and the Man of Vitruvius are already clearly appreciated.

    So I urged Susana to do something similar to what she had done with Salvator Mundi.

    He found a very impressive video by Jairo Parra *, a very expert in The Vitruvian Man that the interested reader should not miss, “20 things you did not know about the Vitruvian Man”

    Jairo Parra describes 20 serious errors (beloved by Leonardo) that do not correspond to the Divine Proportion or Divine Golden Section that is supposed to them, in addition to introducing semi-hidden signs that reveal messages.

    Now, Jairo Parra does not relate him to The Man of the Shroud and he seems to ignore that Leonardo de Vinci studied her intensely with certainty of its authenticity.

    (I’ll get in touch with him as soon as we finish his study).

    Thus we see that the Vitruvian Man as well as the Man of the Shroud:

    1 / They have their hands in an anomalous position hiding their thumbs.

    2 / They have the shortened right arm and the left shoulder more descended, clinical signs of dislocation.

    I suggest the reader to see Vitruvian Man using the drawing that appears on Wikipedia:
    https://es.wikipedia.org/wiki/Vitruvio_Hombre

    It is an image of a huge size that allows perfectly measurements.

    Leonardo was a deep and sincere believer, feeling close to the family asked for a priest to confess and receive Extreme Unction.

    In his book “Aphorisms” his profound faith can be read.

    I will continue telling you as we go forward ……

  7. Dear Dr. Antero de Frias Moreira,

    Thank you for your comments. Findings such as partial congruence of bloodstain pattern, typing as AB (which some question, including Adler for the Shroud) are suggestive of shared identity, yes, but cannot be used to reach a firm scientific conclusion that such articles absolutely wrapped the same man. Perhaps semantics enters into the interpretation of “conclusive”, but DNA evidence is the strongest measure by which such a conclusion could be reached, whether this is feasible or not due to the exogenous contamination-it still does not dilute the necessity of such methods to fully support such a claim. There are methodologies which could distinguish DNA from blood cells vs exogenous, contaminating DNA, (provided sufficient signal exists), am important result, although these would contribute little to establishing a relationship between the two cloths; mitochondrial DNA comparisons (provided sufficient signal exists), would be the most likely to help out here. However, in my opinion, there are important, fundamental issues that should first be addressed, as discussed here,

  8. Dear Dr. Kelly Kearse
    Good to hear from you.
    From a strictly scientific point of view I ‘m in absolute agreement with you but what I meant was that with a reasonable scientific backup it is logical to conclude that the two cloths covered the head of the same Man in a short time interval.
    The paper you wrote and provided the link is as always a must reading

    regards
