New study bolsters theory that body of Jesus Christ produced image

Scientists are building the case that the image of a crucified man on the Shroud of Turin was created by radiation that emanated from the body itself, a theory remarkably supportive of the traditional resurrection account that is central to Christian theology.
A scientific paper co-authored by attorney and historian Mark Antonacci and physicist Arthur Lind argues that the image of the crucified man in Shroud of Turin might constitute what amounts to a photograph taken at the instant Jesus’ body transformed as he rose from the dead.

In the paper, “Particle Radiation from the Body,” Antonacci’s and Lind’s argument centers around the 29 unique or unusual features that scientists over the past four decades have found on the Shroud’s body image and fiber.
Among the 29 features are the following:
- Lack of fading of the image;
- Uniform coloring around each fiber of linen;
- All fibers collectively colored with the same intensity;
- Oxidation and dehydration of fibers;
- Stability of the body image to water and heating;
- Insolubility of the body image to acids, redox and solvents;
- Equal intensity of the body image for frontal and dorsal views;
- Negative images of the body with left/right and light/dark reversals that develop into highly resolved, photographic quality images;
- Three-dimensionality encoded through the space between the body and the cloth.
“All of these features can be accounted for by radiation, and only radiation will account for them all,” the authors conclude. Read the full story: Jerome R. Corsi – World Net Daily
