After all, in the past twenty-five years r-c dating has become more scientifically accurate and it should be able to avoid the criticisms of the 1988 dating.Maybe it would also pinpoint a more precise date within or outside of the 1260-1390 period.30, there is just a possibility they survived and I for one would not rule that out.I don’t think any of us should have anything to fear by a redo, certainly not if our goal is the truth.
ABSTRACT: In the early '80s, evidence was provided that, rather than a dye (red okra), hemoglobin was indeed responsible for the alleged blood stains of the Turin Shroud.
If the shroud was only as old as the radiocarbon date, it would have plentiful vanillin.
(Phys.org) —An earthquake in Old Jerusalem might be behind the famous image of the Shroud of Turin, says a group of researchers led by Alberto Carpinteri of the Politecnico di Torino in Italy in an article published in Springer's journal Meccanica.
These results therefore provide conclusive evidence that the linen of the Shroud of Turin is mediaeval. The radiocarbon measurements were done, not at one laboratory, but at three highly regarded institutions. The results provide not just evidence but conclusive evidence. Finally Ray Rogers, who had accepted the carbon dating, decided to disprove a crazy explanation from what he called the lunatic fringe.
After the results had been leaked, twenty-one scientists from the University of Oxford, the University of Arizona, the Institut für Mittelenergiephysik in Zurich, Columbia University, and the British Museum wrote in a peer-reviewed paper published in Nature in 1989: The results of radiocarbon measurements at Arizona, Oxford and Zurich yield a calibrated calendar age range with at least 95% confidence for the linen of the Shroud of Turin of AD 1260 - 1390 (rounded down/up to nearest 10 yr).
