Scientists are poised to re-open the debate on the actual dating of the Shroud of Turin according to MSNBC.
Here is a snippet from the article:
Twenty years after radiocarbon dating supposedly proved once and for all that the Shroud of Turin was a medieval hoax, scientists are revisiting their research to see if the tests were erroneous and the shroud really dates back to the time of Christ.
“The result of the first test done in 1988 was almost an embarrassment at some point,” Barrie Schwortz, the photographer who documented the original Shroud of Turin Project, told TODAY’s Matt Lauer in a Good Friday interview in New York. “Now that we’re 20 years later, the technology certainly has improved.”
The long strip of tightly woven linen that bears the ghostly image of a bearded man who had apparently been crucified has been venerated since the Middle Ages as the burial shroud of Jesus. And written references to the existence of such a cloth date back to the first century.
Hoax or not I still think this is a fascinating and enduring story based around a very cool artefact.
I was checking out the above clip earlier this morning, and thought it was too funny! Have a look for yourself by clicking on the video. The gist of the video is about a guy who has this amazing game face despite all sorts of crazy situations. In other words this fellow has a dead pan face throughout experiences that would normally trigger some extreme emotional reply. However when the same fellow comes across an intense game of poker....well again just click on the video clip above, and you'll see what I mean.
If you are into world class poker tournaments you may also be interested in knowing that the above video clip was produced in order to help promote the world poker crown. I do not know about you, but I do not think I could keep my game face on when it came to a three million bux guaranteed poker tournament! And that is exactly what is being offered. Now, how cool is that!
For the most part this tournament will be played online, but the biggie final world poker crown event at Perlada Castle in Barcelona, Spain, again very cool!
If you think you might be interested in an taking a chance to win a free seat at this very cool tournament just click on one of the linkys above for further details!
Michael Salla Ph.D. of the Exopolitics Institute will join Host Richard Syrett and his regular Co-Host Victor Viggiani on News Talk CFRB 1010.
Dr. Salla’s contributions to the emerging field of Exopolitics, the UFO/ET issue in general and to the global awareness of world peace are considerable.
To review some of Dr. Salla’s works go to: http://www.exopolitics.org/
Of special interest tonight will be Dr. Salla’s thoughts on the 1978 UN Decision 33/426 stating that, “The General Assembly invites interested Member States to take appropriate steps to coordinate on a national level scientific research and investigation into extraterrestrial life, including unidentified flying objects, and to inform the Secretary-General of the observations, research and evaluation of such activities.”
Tune in tonight at 11:00 PM on CFRB 1010 AM Radio or live on the internet at Listen Now http://www.cfrb.com/ for The Richard Syrett Show.
Victor Viggiani now joins Richard on the first and third Wednesday of each month with provocative guests and stimulating discussion on the UFO/ET issue.
Since the availability to the average consumer of reasonably priced power tools such as festool many people have been taking on house renovation projects on their own. The question we are often asked in regards is "do renovations stir up ghostly activity?" Many people feel so, and this historic (circa 1817) house may be yet another case of this.
According to John Robert Colombo's Mysteries of Ontario, during the 1989 renovations, workmen claimed they heard "cries" over their own power tools and experienced one of the most 'common' type of reported poltergeist behaviour with things going "missing" only to turn up in strange and weird spots later.
Were spirits 'disturbed' by the work? Could be... Has there been any other reports either more recent or from before 1989? That's, hopefully, where you come in!
We are looking for more reports from the house. If you have anything to add or share about McIntosh-Ridley house or anywhere else in the Belleville area, please e-mail our researcher for Belleville at brendag AT ontarioghosts.org
