Carbon dating shroud turin
Because every blood clot is pristine, with perfect edges, and hasn’t been touched.
Anyone who has bled into their shirt knows that when you take the shirt off, you break the blood clots.
This is the final part four-part part series on the Shroud of Turin.

So she went to textile experts in New York and they agreed with her theory, saying that it was a French inweaving or reweaving.
She then goes back to the original carbon dating moment in Turin.
THE 2005 CONCLUSIONS Shroud enthusiasm is restored. 2014: WHERE THE DATA STANDS Best guess according to science 2005-2014, with the knowledge of physics, the knowledge of chemistry, the knowledge of photographic principles, of how the image got on the Shroud.
Characteristics to explain: One of the issues that must be considered in any theory of how the image in the Shroud was formed is that the body was laid in the Shroud with the Shroud draped tightly.
The Turin scientists and a cardinal, at the last moment, threw out that recommendation out and only took one sample site.
He started this study after listening to Sue Benford, who had called him up. But he had samples left over from the C14 dating as well as samples from 1976 when they had a few threads and some from 1978 when they had other threads.
After 4 years of study, and getting a team to help him, he publishes in Thermochimica Acts Volume 425 in January 2005 that what was actually sent from the Shroud to be dated was actually a re-mending of the Shroud with cotton put together with the linen.
The space and the tufts of the cotton were closer and tighter on the left side than they were on the right side of the piece, where the cotton was more scraggly and beat up.
The “alleyways” between the cotton on the left side were skinnier as opposed to the right side where they were thicker, bigger, and wider. She developed a theory that what was actually sent for carbon dating was from a medieval patch job, part 100% cotton mixed with linen that was from before the date proposed by the carbon dating.
