This is from your site.
"No examples of complex herringbone weave are known from the time of Jesus when, in any case, burial cloths tended to be of plain weave. In addition, Jewish burial practice utilized—and the Gospel of John specifically describes for Jesus—multiple burial wrappings with a separate cloth over the face."
But there are examples
Methchild Flury-Lemberg, a leading authority on historic textiles and the former curator of Switzerland’s Abegg Foundation Textile Museum, has reported strong similarities between the Shroud’s fabric and fragments of cloth produced in the Middle East about 2,000 years ago. According to Flury-Lemberg, the cloth’s finishing, its selvage, and a very distinctive joining seam, all closely resemble unique ancient textiles found in tombs of the Jewish palace-fortress Masada. The Masada fabrics have been reliably dated to between 40 BCE and 73 CE. Flury-Lemberg’s detailed analysis of the Shroud’s fabric – an exceptionally fine quality, z-twist, 3-over-1-herringbone patterned linen cloth – is evidence that it was manufactured in the Middle East on a Roman-period Egyptian or Syrian loom.
so obviously your source is incorrect.
As far as other cloths,I believe the separate face cloth is known as the Sudarium Of Oveido.
Yes I am aware you prefer apologetics to science, but it doesn't matter. Nothing you post has come close to proving the existence of Jewish magic.

Still waiting for an explanation of how the pyramids could not be built at the time they were. Oddly you have presented nothing to even attempt to oppose what I posted as to how they did it. So yeah, "BS and guesswork" does fit what you have posted thus far, just like all religious nuts post.
I never said they couldn't be built. What I said was in todays world, only using the same tools they had back then, that man of today could not build them on that scale today.

Ivan's Terrible World War II Experiences: The Red Army G.I. in the Great Patrtiotic War, April 9, 2007
By C. M Mills "Michael Mills"
...The Russians died in droves. They were trained from birth to WORSHIP THE ATHEISTIC STATE. They were guilty of rape, looting, torture, Anti-Semitism and cruelty in all its hydra headed manifestations. Those Soviets who were captured by the enemy as POW's were suspected by their own government as being spies. Many of these troops were sent to the infamous GULAG's following the end of the war in 1945..........

Perhaps on the bright side we could send all of our creationists to England.
Thanks but no thanks.

Doesn't worry us. It was even a creationist who started to lay down the foundations for evolution. Many fundies find that concept to be somewhat treacherous.

Ok now that I can respect. You have been up and down in life so you know life is worth living. Again I will say no matter if you believe in evolution or creation, we all only have one life so make the best of it and again glad to meet you. You have overcame many hurdles and that is a great feat. Make a deal with you. get off my ass and I will get off yours. I gave you no reason to start on me and if I did unknowingly so my bad. I hope you continue to hold your head high and keep moving forward in a positive derection.
And again this is me and for the record my name is Jeff. I am a RN and Respiratory Care Practitioner – RRT with a masters. I hold a bachelors in Business. I hold a bachelors in Engineering, I hold an associates in computer programming (working on bachelors, then masters). I have two beautiful daughters and they are my life. I have lost all of my family except my daughters/grandkids and they are what and the only things I live for. I will not be forced into taking a side or be a robot to anyone.
I still think you are lying about your life. I see no reason to believe a word you state because you ignore facts, no one with an education would even think to say "we don't know how the pyramids were built," no one with an education above fifth grade, and that is very much a requirement for being a nurse.

Yes, we can, we have simulated it many times, following the exact same methods they describe in their own writings. You ignored all that several times, and someone even posted you one of the examples of someone doing something equivalent, now you are changing what your assertion is to try to save face and even this new goal post has already been addressed by the same things we have already explained to you. Face it, you are not interested in learning anything, you just want to make up mysteries that are so easy to solve because you're not educated or studied enough to know any of the real mysteries.

Ok I tried being nice and show you a little respect and you still are an @ss. So Fck you and Kiss my @ss. I won't make the mistake of trying to be nice to you again. And I don't believe your story either. You are a junkie, which is how you met other junkies, you probably live in a half way house in between rehabs which is why you work the kitchen line for it is the only job you can get since you are a junkie and been in trouble most of your life. There ya go. I can be an @ss just like you. Happy now?

I learned how they built the pyramids in junior high school, that was around 1980 actually. So yeah, if you're a nurse, you would have had to be in school long enough to at least learn that.

Ignoring for a moment that no one has sufficient interest to fund such a project, why couldn't it be done?

You know what this is kitty, Pneumonoultramicroscopicsilico volcanoconiosis? It is a BS word made up for a simple lung disease for inhaling silica dust. It cause inflammation but not much more else, but on rare occasions like anything it can get worse. Guess what... The pyramids taught me that. LMMFAO

Sounds like what the American public schools have changed into since the 1960's.

Just wondering...how many other countries (other than America) actually believe in 'ape to human' evolution?
