Sorry, shroudie, I keep forgetting that one should assume a miraculous, supernatural theory is true, then work backwards to prove it's validity by ignoring or discrediting those nasty secular humanist scientific techniques and inconvenient historical records. But we minions of Satan are always planting those nasty doubts to test the faithful. Rock on! I have to go plant some more dinosaur bones to plague the creation science folks!
CATHOLIC ENCYCLOPEDIA: The Shroud of Turin
PBS "Secrets of the Dead" Buries the Truth About Turin Shroud
Hmmmm dead links. I guess you don't want readers to see that your sources are an article that was written in 1908 and copyrighted in 1912, since superceded in the Catholic Encyclopedia in 1968 (still outdated but nowhere nearly as biased as the one YOU like to cite).
And that the other is to Joe Nickell, PhD in Art and English, no science to his name, a professional "debunker" with a book to sell... more on that later, Happy.

Amusing that the "credulous" shroudie is the one providing technical analysis and scientific documentation, and the "realist" debunker must make do with sarcasm, innuendo and intentionally ignoring established facts...
Thanks for the links. The second one, dating from April 9, 2004 was VERY interesting!
