PainInTheASP: Jesus was an alien.
Close2TheEdge: Yeah, and this might be true too. But I doubt it.[upload.wikimedia.org image 409x384]
Yakk: It's painted on, if the impression was made by draping it over a body it face would be distorted on the sides where it hung over the cheeks.
Jon iz teh kewl: jesus or republican jesus??
PsyLord: Or someone that lived around that time. Who knows.
ChrisDe: FTA: The research linking the shroud to between 280 B.C. and A.D. 220So they've narrowed it down to a 500-year period? That's some fine detective work there, Lou.
Point02GPA: PainInTheASP: Jesus was an alien.I think he was Spanish, Mexico wasn't even a country at that time.
Bladel: How fortunate that Fox can get the Shroud of Turin in the news, just in time for Easter!
Mad_Radhu: Yakk: It's painted on, if the impression was made by draping it over a body it face would be distorted on the sides where it hung over the cheeks.This. The geometry of the face alone makes it a fake. I don't know why people are still arguing for authenticity.
captainstudd: Isn't that blood on the forehead? Can we get some DNA and impregnate someone with a baby Jesus? We can actually play god.
PainInTheASP: Jesus was an alien.*
olddinosaur: Here's what's wrong with the Shroud:1. The man is tall and thin, most men of the times had short stocky physiques;2. His face is oval and elongate, most men of that place and time had round wide faces;3. The nose is straight and long, most men of that place had short wide noses;4. He has a high square forehead and a high hairline, most men of that place had a low hairline and rounded forehead;5. He wears his hair shoulder length, most men of that place and time wore their hair about 1" long at most;6. He wears a long beard, and most men of that place and time cropped their beards shorter than their hair, 1/2" on average;7. Both the hair and the beard are straight, most men of that place and time had curly hair;8. The forearms are abnormally long in proportion to the rest of the body, but the forelegs are normal in size, and it is nowhere written that Jesus suffered any such deformity;9. The reverse view of the body is 1/2" inch longer than the front view, and curvature of the cloth does not seem to account for this inconsistency.Everyone who wrote about Jesus considered him important, and no one mentions anywhere that he looked any different from the common men of his place and time. When the Romans came to take him, they had to ask who he was, which proves it even more conclusively. Jesus did not look any different from the average man of his place and time, the facts do not support any other conclusion.
