The Shroud of Turin's missing years appear to have been accounted for, the Vatican has claimed that the Knights Templar hid the relic for over 100 years after the crusades. The shroud is believed to show the image of Christ imprinted upon it.
Medieval knights hid and secretly venerated The Holy Shroud of Turin for more than 100 years after the Crusades, the Vatican said yesterday in an announcement that appeared to solve the mystery of the relicís missing years. The Knights Templar, an order which was suppressed and disbanded for alleged heresy, took care of the linen cloth, which bears the image of a man with a beard, long hair and the wounds of crucifixion, according to Vatican researchers.

It is a face of a knight. Look up medieval knights faces and compare the shroud of turin.

^ I admit i had to laugh tho it will most likely result in flames The shroud is a painting and a very obvious one.If we where to wrap a shroud around someone 's face the only outcome would have been more like this Instead of a perfectly symmetrical portrait with perfectly stylised hair.You can even test this out yourselves at home fairly easy and cheap.I am not sure how much more proof people need to see they are being lied to.We dont need a pope to convince us of like as if we are the idiots they seem to think we are do we ? No one really even needs to do the actuall comparison to convince th... [More]

Shroud of Turin baring the image of Jesus, to me is as real/genuine as the Jesus image on toast...even Santa Claus & The Easter Bunny.

he's guessing ......... and could you find a even more biased site ?? how about an actual link to the article ? So peer-reviewed scientific journals allow guesses to be published as verifiable evidence? That explains so much about evolution! For the record, whether the Shroud really has anything to do with Jesus's resurrection or not, really doesn't matter to me, but I do like to see consistency in what is accepted as scientific evidence and what is not.

I am sorry to say this but so far you are the one that has denied the evidence and posted the conjecture.If you would review this thread and stick to the consistent evidence and reject the posted conjecture and claims you wold have come to terms with it. Also i do not believe for 1 second that it does not matter to you so much has been made clear by you yourself trying quite desperatly to use unproven claims and conjecture selling it of as conclusive. You started out quite confident in this thread but all of a sudden that breaks down to "it does not interest me" ? I think you just realised you... [More]

They do show it actually and quite well too.the facial texture is from the GTA4 game and when wrapped around the characters model al his facial features are a lot slimmer and closer together as they should after the texture wrap.The facial hair in this shots is a bit in the way but i found this picture's expression to fit better for the comparison in this case. Although a real life comparison of this sort would blatantly show that the hair and it style (the fact that there is any style to it is just one of the many smoking guns) is impossible to imprint on a shroud in this manner (or any other...
