The C has been falsified by other research. Neutron radiation is usually generated by nuclear fusion or fission, and may be produced by nuclear reactors or particle accelerators. Sign the petition. But few Nature papers from that era have remained such a cause of dispute as the one published in on radiocarbon dating of the Turin Shroud. Scientists remove a small sample from an object, treat the sample with a strong acid and a strong base, and finally burn it in a small glass chamber to produce carbon dioxide gas. Thread by thread, so there are no differences visible to the naked eye and X-ray and transmitted light photographs are difficult to interpret. On average we have 3 legs.
We are faced with actual blackmail:
Researchers hung men on a cross and added blood in bid to prove Turin Shroud is real
They conclude that: The shroud is one of the holy relics of the Catholic Church, and is believed by many of the devout to be the burial wrapping of Christ. I am, of course, inclined to the latter in both cases. However, in a paper Gove conceded that the "arguments often raised, … that radiocarbon measurements on the shroud should be performed blind seem to the author to be lacking in merit; … lack of blindness in the measurements is a rather insubstantial reason for disbelieving the result. These initial tests show no significant reaction — even though the sensitivity of the measurements is sufficient to detect contamination that would offset the age by less than a single year. You and Hugh should both now be delighted that true additional scientific studies may in the not too distant future now be permitted.
