New blood stain analysis casts doubt on authenticity of Shroud of Turin
The Journal of Forensic Sciences is a respected, peer-reviewed scientific journal.
In the normal course of forensic analysis, the evidence is taken as real and the analysis attempts to reconstruct the events.
This experiment was different: They presumed that the cloth neatly wrapped a man, in supine posture, who had been tortured to death according to eye-witness accounts. In the real world, the hasty burial of a bloody corpse likely resulted in some smudge stains that obscured the trails of blood.
I trust that the researchers are not biased. I would like for them to examine the Shroud again as if it were real, and see if they can reconstruct the events of the burial from the blood evidence that remains.
