My opinion is that a youboob video isn't a peer reviewed journal article. There is a fundamental difference between religious propaganda and scholarly or scientific research.

And that results in them never, ever, using science. They use what would be "science" if their god was real, but that's not in this universe.

I listened to the video. I'm unimpressed. People on this site have repeatedly demonstrated how the image on the linen is incorrectly shaped if it was placed on a person's body and is somehow a superimposition of the features of the person on the linen.

EDIT: Missed some punctuation.

I think it's a good video. It clearly illustrates every trick in the book used by religious nuts in the half-baked attempt to convince those of unicellular brains whilst AT PRECISELY THE SAME TIME not mentioning anything at all which blows the whole idea out of the water.
A tour de force of the art of hoodwinking. Well done, guys.

Personally, I find it fascinating that you posted this thread in the "UFOs, Cryptozoology, and the Paranormal" sub-forum. Do you classify Jesus as an alien, a mythical animal, or a ghost? I'm guessing the second one, based on "beast your eyes."

I think the giant space was to represent a dramatic pause before posting half of Melanie's platform, "Be Best". Perhaps, after an even longer dramatic pause, the second half will appear in a future post!

Hi Kamil,
There are so many things wrong with this scam as already stated by others here. Here are some more problems as stated on https://rationalwiki.org/wiki/Shroud_of_Turin

1. Blood turns brown with ageing, on the shroud it has been identified as red paint.
2. Hebrew law dictated cleansing of the corpse before wrapping and bodies don't bleed after death
3. Even if we discard all the scientific evidence that debunks it already and pretend that it comes from the 1st century, how do you pin it on Jesus? This is just wishful thinking on steroids.
