Study Claims Shroud of Turin Could Not Have Been Faked:

 51 USAF713, Fri, 23rd Dec '11 5:11:58 PM from the United States
I changed accounts.
Meh. Whatever. Even if they prove its dating and prove that it isn't a fake, they're not gonna tie it to Jesus, so I'm not going to worry about it.
I am now known as Flyboy.
Alright, now I want to know specifically how they determined that it wasn't faked through means available at the time,
That's the thing. They basically just declared "we can't figure out how to fake it, so it's real."
I've also heard that in the middle ages there were four genuine foreskins of Jesus Christ worshipped as relics. But that's anecdotal, I don't have a source or anything.

I actually saw this as a part of an exhibit put together by the Vatican Archives.

You can say what you want about the organization itself, but the Vatican Archives is one of the most massive and awe-inspiring collections on earth.

The system doesn't know you right now, so no post button for you.
You need to Get Known to get one of those.
