Research radiocarbon dating and the shroud of turin Male chat dirty no sign up
A piece of linen about 14 feet long and 4 feet wide, the shroud bears bloodstains and the faint brownish image of a man's body, front and back, with wounds corresponding to those described in biblical accounts of the death of Jesus.Despite the successful dating of the linen, Cardinal Ballestrero emphasized, ''After all this research, we do not have any plausible answers to explain how the image of Christ was created.'' The tests reported today were on small patches of cloth that did not contain any of the dark spots that had been described as the image of Jesus.
The stitching pattern, which she says was the work of a professional, is quite similar to the hem of a cloth found in the tombs of the Jewish fortress of Masada. This kind of stitch has never been found in Medieval Europe.
The Shroud has attracted widespread interest ever since Secondo Pia took the first photograph of it in 1898: about whether it is Jesus' purported burial cloth, how old it might be, and how the image was created.
According to radiocarbon dating done in 1988, the cloth was only 728 years old at the time.
In the process, neutrons are produced without gamma emissions.
Analogously, the researchers theorize further that neutron flux increments, in correspondence to seismic activity, should be a result of the same reactions.
