Good video on how carbon dating works. Well worth watching if you don’t know how it works and why it is accurate and useful – and why mistakes happen (as with the shroud).
The Holy Face of Jesus from original sources such as the Shroud of Turin, etc. as well as many inspired paintings is contemplated with prayers from the Holy face Devotion and “Love Being Loved By You” by Rebecca St.James.
The Divine Remedy has another great posting. It concludes (and you should read up to these last sentences here.

Come to find out that a Russian TV crew was in Colorado Spring just this past week to shoot footage for a documentary on the Shroud of Turin. According to Mike Barna of Colorado Spring’s The Gazette:
The crew is shooting for Channel One Russia, one of the largest broadcast stations in Russia. Expected audience for the documentary premiering next April is 150 million. The crew was in town to interview shroud experts John and Rebecca Jackson.
According to the paper, there will be more about this in the paper on Saturday. So check back in.
All those happy people are from Channel One Russia’s home page. Reminds me of the opening number on the Drew Carey Show.
The video is about ten minutes long and is, in my opinion, the best segment I have seen explaining invisible reweaving.

We discuss the famed Turin Shroud in a chemistry context, including how radiocarbon dating has famously been used on the religious relic.
