Yeah, surgery still scares me a bit, the thought of them putting their hands into my guts freaks me out, even after I have had such a surgery. So yeah, I'm a coward in that respect.

Now, what does my fear of major surgery have to do with the price of rice in China?

Nope-- I said you were lying when you claimed you understood the issues-- you clearly have no comprehension of any kind, with regards to anything **not** in your bible.

THAT was what I called you out for lying about.

I really don't give a crap WHAT you are interested in-- likely your interests are closely related to porn anyhow....

Proof is proof. The scientific evidence presented in the Shroud of Turin proves the Gospels and that Christianity is the one true faith.

Everything about the Catholic Church has been proven to be a hoax or a fraud of one kind or another. Most of the saints in their pantheon are stolen from pagan myths. Christmas and the idea of monogamy are stolen from the Romans. Even Moses is a plagiarized form Mises, a Syrian deity. Their is nothing the church won't steal,including the virginity of young boys.

All you have to do is go to Wiki to prove yourself wrong:'According to former Nature editor Philip Ball, "it's fair to say that, despite the seemingly definitive tests in 1988, the status of the Shroud of Turin is murkier than ever. Not least, the nature of the image and how it was fixed on the cloth remain deeply puzzling". The shroud continues to remain one of the most studied and controversial artifacts in human history.'

Poor bob, such an intelligent idiot. No Christian has ever been as rude, hypocritical or judgmental as bob- or as wrong. Bob thinks he can read minds, ladies and gentlemen- he thinks he knows what people are thinking. Poor pitiful bob. He projects his interests on other people (the "porn" referal) and expects that to be normal for everyone. Poor pitiful bob.

False. The DNA was 100% artificial. It was pieced together from **dead** chemicals, using a computer, which used a template created by the scientists. Sure, they borrowed snippets here and there, but it was 100% stored in the **computer**, assembled from a variety of sources.
The cell was **dead** it had no DNA, it could not replicate, it could not feed, it could not grow-- it was DEAD.
The DNA was created from **dead** chemical pieces, and assembled into working DNA.
The result was inserted into the DEAD cell.
Which came to life.
And started feeding, and growing, and reproducing-- faithfully replicating the ARTIFICIALLY ASSEMBLED DNA.
They could tell-- the cells also glowed. An artificial feature added by the scientists.
So you are simply full of shyt as is usual for godbots.
So you deny what your own link says. That is funny. LMAO

Only if your deity had an unusually large head and one leg a good bit shorter than the other. He also would have been a good deal taller than the average middle easterner of 2,000 years ago. I doubt the Romans would have had any need for Judas to point him out. How many really tall guys with abnormally sized heads an a limp were wandering around Jerusalem at the time?

On the other hand, the size, the really large head in proportion to the body and the poorly scaled limbs are all characteristic of the Gothic style of painting, which was prevalent in the early middle ages. The same era that carbon dating gives us as the approximate age of the shroud. Hmmm. The same era when counterfeit 'relics' of all sorts were common, both to fleece pilgrims and to dupe the flock with phony 'proof' of the biblical stories and the history of the martyrs.

"Deeply puzzling" article is not the same as confirming that it is Christ's image or that the item is not carbon-dated to early middle ages.

Find a forensic scientist to say the image on the Shroud is not that of a real human body. Now find an objective site and not one of your skeptic sites that could not find the truth if they tripped over it. I am anxiously waiting your link.
