We’ve had provocative Dreamland shows about the mysterious Shroud of Turin (and subscribers can still listen to these shows). Now Italian government scientists say they have discovered evidence that a supernatural event formed the image on the Shroud, which is believed by many to be the burial cloth of Jesus.
They’ve done this by finally–after years of effort–being able to create a similar image using ultra violet lasers, something which was beyond the abilities of Medieval forgers.
In the Independent, Michael Day quotes researcher Paolo Di Lazzaro as saying that "the results show that a short and intense burst of UV directional radiation can color a linen cloth so as to reproduce many of the peculiar characteristics of the body image on the Shroud of Turin."
He quotes chemist Luigi Garlaschelli as saying, "The implications are that the image was formed by a burst of UV energy so intense it could only have been supernatural."
If this verdict changes in the future, you can be sure we’ll let you know, because you can trust unknowncountry.com to tell you the truth (and we correct ourselves if we’re wrong). If you want this kind of reporting to be there the next time you fire up your computer, be sure to subscribe today!
