Wait, I thought it was a medieval forgery!!!
The New York Post is reporting on a study that says that “the Shroud of Turin is stained with the blood of a torture victim.”
Who could’ve possibly seen this coming?
The linen cloth, believed to have been used to wrap the body of Jesus after his crucifixion, contains “nanoparticles” which are not typically found in the blood of a healthy person.
Elvio Carlino, a researcher at the Institute of Crystallography in Bari, Italy, says the tiny particles “have recorded a scenario of great suffering, whose victim was wrapped up in the funeral cloth.”
These particles had a “peculiar structure, size and distribution,” according to University of Padua professor Giulio Fanti.
He says they are not typical of the blood of a healthy person as they show high levels of substances called creatinine and ferritin, which are found in patients who suffer forceful multiple traumas like torture.
Professor Fanti said: “Hence, the presence of these biological nanoparticles found during our experiments point to a violent death for the man wrapped in the Turin Shroud.”
It has been subject to intense scientific study to ascertain its authenticity.
The new findings were published in the scientific journal, PlosOne, in an article titled “New Biological Evidence from Atomic Resolution Studies on the Turin Shroud.”
There’s so much evidence out there that this very well could be the burial shroud of Christ. I love how so many still bring up that study from thirty years ago that claimed it a medieval forgery. So I guess now you’d have to assume it was a medieval forgerer who dabbled in torture. Hey, we all must suffer for art, right?
It’s funny though how a study from decades ago still gets more publicity than current scientific studies that point to the Shroud being the burial cloth of Christ. Because please remember, it’s not about truth. It’s about the narrative. And the narrative is that Christianity is hogwash.
