some tv documentary and went looking on you-tube, glad I was able to find it. I also came across the paper that Sue Benford presented, in 2000: http://www.shroud.com/pdfs/marben.pdf Apparently that Swiss woman, Mechthild Flury-Lemberg, became involved with the shroud in 2002, taking on its restoration & conservation. While she apparently refuted the theory that carbon testing was done on a patch (based on what the textile expert present at the time the sample was taken had said), her own observation produced "new evidence that the famed linen dates to the first century A.D., to the time of Christ." http://www.pbs.org/wnet/secrets/previous_seasons/case_shroud...
I think there is plenty of scientific evidence to show that the shroud is well out of the ordinary. But among the most compelling evidence to me is the peculiarity that the marks on the shroud are... impossible, what quantum physicists apparently call an "event horizon" (supposedly what could only happen near a black hole). Also what is revealed by holographic imaging. If you're interested, key up to about 30 minutes: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Xnw8oSPSY9w
When we try to pick out anything by itself, we find it hitched to everything else in the Universe.
