The Turin Shroud Is A Medieval Prop Made For Plays, Says Expert

The Turin Shroud Is A Medieval Prop Made For Plays, Says Expert
British scholar Charles Freeman says the Turin Shroud was a medieval prop. He analysed the cloth and found no mention of it from before 1355. This split screen shows the likeness between the Turin Shroud and a portrait of Christ by Leonardo da Vinci

Looking through historical texts, he found no mention of the shroud before 1355 - somewhat odd for an item of such apparent religious significance.

He then notes that the artefact was acquired by the House of Savoy - one of the oldest royal familes in the world - and turned into a ‘high-prestige relic’ in 1453, reports The Guardian.

But following this he found that depictions of the shroud, including an engraving by artist Anotonio Tempesta in 1613, were different from the shroud we know today.

They focused on features that are no longer easy to spot, including the Crown of Thorns and long hair on Christ’s neck.

In addition, it is no longer easy to see that the figure in the shroud was once covered in blood and marks from where he had been struck.

‘Astonishingly, few researchers appear to have grasped that the shroud looked very different in the 16th and 17th centuries from the object we see today,’ Freeman writes.


This leads him to believe that the shroud was mostly likely just a prop used in medieval Easter rituals.

He believed it was used in a ceremony called the ‘Quem Quaeritis?’ or ‘whom do you seek?’

This ceremony involved re-enacting gospel accounts of the resurrection.

‘They would enter a makeshift tomb and bring out the grave clothes to show that Christ had indeed risen,’ Freeman says.

The shroud is set to be exhibited next year in Turin for the first time in five years, with two million people expected to visit it.


JESUS NEVER EXISTED, CLAIMS EXPERT



Writer Michael Paulkovich has claimed that there is little evidence for a person known as Jesus existing in history.

Jesus is thought to have lived from about 7BC to 33AD in the Roman Empire.

However Paulkovich says he found little to no mention of the supposed messiah in 126 texts written in the first to third centuries.

Only one mention of Jesus was present, in a book by Roman historian Josephus Flavius, but he says this was added by later editors.

He says this is surprising despite the ‘alleged worldwide fame’ of Jesus. This has led him to believe that Jesus was a 'mythical character'.

WHAT IS THE TURIN SHROUD?


The linen cloth, believed by some to have wrapped the body of Jesus Christ, has captivated the imagination of historians, church chiefs, sceptics and Catholics for more than 500 years.

There are no definite historical records concerning the shroud prior to the 14th century. Although there are numerous reports of Jesus' burial shroud, or an image of his head, of unknown origin, being venerated in various locations before the 14th century.

But there is no historical evidence that these refer to the shroud currently at Turin Cathedral. A burial cloth, which some historians maintain was the Shroud, was owned by the Byzantine emperors but disappeared during the Sack of Constantinople in 1204.

Historical records seem to indicate that a shroud bearing an image of a crucified man existed in the small town of Lirey around the years 1353 to 1357. It was in the possession of a French Knight, Geoffroi de Charny, who died at the Battle of Poitiers in 1356.

However the correspondence of this shroud with the shroud in Turin, and its very origin has been debated by scholars and lay authors, with claims of forgery attributed to artists born a century apart. Some contend that the Lirey shroud was the work of a confessed forger and murderer.

The history of the shroud from the 15th century is well recorded. In 1532, the shroud suffered damage from a fire in a chapel of Chambéry, capital of the Savoy region, where it was stored.

A drop of molten silver from the reliquary produced a symmetrically placed mark through the layers of the folded cloth. Poor Clare Nuns attempted to repair this damage with patches.

In 1578 Emmanuel Philibert, Duke of Savoy ordered the cloth to be brought from Chambéry to Turin and it has remained at Turin ever since.

The shroud has had many notorious admirers. It even obsessed Nazi dictator Adolf Hitler, who wanted to steal it so he could use it in a black magic ceremony.

In May 2010, five years after he became Pope, Benedict authorised a public viewing of the Shroud - the first since 2000.

This picture from Turin in 1967 apparently shows the profile of Jesus Christ from the Turin Shroud. Radiocarbon dating in 1988, however, suggested the Shroud was no older than the 14th century

Putin Warns Of “Nuclear Power Consequences” If Attempts To Blackmail Russia Don’t Stop

Putin Warns Of “Nuclear Power Consequences” If Attempts To Blackmail Russia Don’t Stop

It’s futile for the U.S. and its allies to “blackmail” Russia over the Ukraine crisis, President Vladimir Putin said in a newspaper interview today.

Russia’s partners should remember the risks involved in disputes between nuclear powers, Putin said. He accused Barack Obama of adopting a “hostile” approach in namingRussia as a threat to the world in the U.S. president’s speech to the United Nations General Assembly on Sept. 24.

“We hope that our partners will realize the futility of attempts to blackmail Russia and remember what consequences discord between major nuclear powers could bring for strategic stability,” Putin told Serbia’s Politika newspaper on the eve of his visit to the Balkan nation today.

Putin said that Obama had identified Russian aggression in Europe as one of the three “major threats facing humanity,” alongside the Ebola virus and Islamic State.

Putin Warns Of “Nuclear Power Consequences” If Attempts To Blackmail Russia Don’t Stop

“Together with the sanctions against entire sectors of our economy, this approach can be called nothing but hostile,” Putin said.

Attempts to pressure Russia with “unilateral and illegitimate restrictive measures” will impede efforts to settle the crisis, he said.

“How can we talk about de-escalation in Ukraine while the decisions on new sanctions are introduced almost simultaneously with the agreements on the peace process?” he said. “If the main goal is to isolate our country, it’s an absurd and illusory goal.”

Catholic Priest Wakes Up From Coma After 17 Months, Converts To Islam

Catholic Priest Wakes Up From Coma After 17 Months, Converts To Islam

A catholic priest from the island of Java in Indonesia who has woken up from a 17 month long coma has converted himself to Islam after the man claims Allah spoke to him and showed him “the beauty of the heavens”.

The 87-year old priest from Spain has lived and preached on the island for more then 43 years and is fluent in Javanese and various dialects of the different ethnic groups of the island and is a well known and respected figure amongst all religious groups of the area.

The man who has suffered a cardiac arrest while helping local volunteers to fix the roof of his own church and fell an incredible two stories high has managed to survive and come out of his coma, in brittle shape, yet a changed man.

Catholic Priest Wakes Up From Coma After 17 Months, Converts To Islam
Priest Eduardo Vincenzo Maria Gomez weeks before his tragic accident 
“I know nothing of Islam. Never once have I read the Quran but God spoke to me and asked me to follow him to the heavens and the Holy light shone through my entire being and behold the golden gates of heaven appeared before me and God told me his name and it was Allah” told the newly convert to a journalist of the Kalimantan Press.

The man who miraculously suffers no spinal injury should be able to walk soon, admits the physician who took care of him at South Jakarta’s Metropolitan Medical Centre. “This must be the strongest 80-year old I have ever seen. His bones should be smashed to pieces” ponders Jim Won May, who has practiced medecine for over twenty years.

His conversion to Islam took most of his church followers by surprise, but interestingly enough, already half of his christian followers have showed interest in converting to Islam. “If Allah is the true God, I don’t want to be misled in the wrong direction on judgement day. I trust Father Eduardo. We all believe in him” explains one of his followers.

The priest who is still under medical attention has already ordered the construction of a new mosque and his followers are already hard at work to find the funds necessary for the task. “We owe it to Father Eduardo for all he has done for us” comments one of the devotees of the old catholic church, that is now for sale.

52-year-old Kang Niu, inserted a 13-centimetre long steel rod into his privates after he began having problems with impotence?

In order to solve his problems of not getting girlfriends he inserted the metal rod with a narrow tube down the middle.

Doctors at the Second Hospital in the Chinese city of Hengyang managed to remove the equipment after it had shot into the man's bladder when he was sleeping with a woman.

Despite being in agony, the man reportedly said nothing for months, hoping that he would eventually be able to pass the rod back out again.

Girl Grows Football Sized Tumor On Her Face


Girl Grows Football Sized Tumor On Her Face.

Grace, a 17-year-old girl in the Democratic Republic of Congo, has suffered for the last 10 years with a football sized tumor on her face.

She said that the tumor started growing little by little and the gums in her mouth started to swell. She went to the hospital, and they had no idea what it was. They did nothing and sent her home.

Over 10 years the tumor increased in size, as large as a football. Grace even stopped going to school. Not because she couldn’t, but because she was afraid of being made fun of by the other children.


Although she is able to eat and breathe, they were afraid that the fast-growing tumor might eventually suffocate her.

But thanks to the help of a floating hospital called Africa Mercy that travels around the world performing free medical procedures, she will finally get the help she needs.

Doctors performed a four hour operation on Grace to remove the tumor and replace her lower jaw with titanium plates.

Dr. Gary Parker, the surgeon who operated on Grace, says after six months she will be able to get artificial teeth that will help her chew.

A Man Sentenced To Death Asks For A Child As His Last Meal

Doug Stephener a cannibal pedophile sentenced to death in Texas asked this weekend as his last meal … a little boy.

Man, that will be executed by lethal injection next week filing his application stating that he wanted to enjoy a maximum of 8 years old child. He also said he refused the child to be of Asian origin.

A Man Sentenced To Death Asks For A Child As His Last Meal

The Department of Corrections is supposed to have to accept all the demands of any kind. So it may be that they are buying a corpse in a morgue to satisfy the desires of Doug Stephener.

Disgusting. This guy is straight from a horror movie. If I’ve ever heard of anyone who deserved to die… this guy is a leading candidate. What a filthy disgusting smear on this Earth. He should be cremated and thrown in a volcano. Yikes…

Woman Discovers Three-inch-long Leech living In Her Nose

Woman Discovers Three-inch-long Leech living In Her Nose

Daniela Liverani, a backpacker who suffered from persistent nosebleeds was horrified to discover they were caused by a three-inch-long leech which had been living up her nose for a month.

She had been travelling around south-east Asia when she was involved in a motorbike crash.

She had thought that a lump poking from the bottom of her nose was congealed blood from a burst blood vessel after the accident.

But just days after returning home to Edinburgh she was disgusted to find that it was the head of a huge leech which had started living in her nostril.

After first trying to blow the leech out, and grab it with her fingers, the graduate, 24, was rushed to A&E to have the creature removed with forceps and tweezers.

'When I was in the shower, he would come right out as far as my bottom lip and I could see him sticking out the bottom of my nose,' she said.

'So when that happened, I jumped out of the shower to look really closely in the mirror and I saw ridges on him. That's when I realised he was an animal.'

Miss Liverani said: 'It was agony - whenever the doctor grabbed him, I could feel the leech tugging at the inside of my nose.

'Then all of a sudden, after half an hour, the pain stopped and the doctor had the leech in the tweezers.

'He was about as long as my forefinger and as fat as my thumb.

'He could move so fast as well, which freaked me out. I've no idea how he got up there but he'd have got bigger and bigger from feeding on my blood.

'I asked the doctor what would've happened if I hadn't gone to hospital and she said he'd probably have worked his way into my brain.'

Mark Siddal, curator at the American Museum of Natural History in New York and an expert on leeches, said: 'Daniela could have picked up this leech from water in Vietnam, if she had been swimming.

'Or it could have gone in through her mouth, as she was drinking water.

'Even though it was there for around a month, these leeches don't grow all that quickly, so it wouldn't have been much smaller when it went up there.

'It would have been quite sizeable.

History Of Secret Societies: Knights Templar, Illuminati, Assassins, Freemasons

History Of Secret Societies: Knights Templar, Illuminati, Assassins, Freemasons

The dark forces of secret societies have permeated our history since the beginning of time. Each branch of evil, having its own purpose and utilizing all of the talent, money, and power they achieve. The main areas of these conquests are the economy, religion, education, and politics. These societies usually practice odd rituals and sometimes overly perverted ones, all to sanctify their commitment to the society.They run our financial institutions, our churches, our schools. It seems their reach is never ending, when you’ve been marked an enemy and we’ve seen many who have tried expose these forces lose their lives, in the process.

Mysterious Metal Object Falls From Sky in New Jersey

Mysterious Metal Object Falls From Sky in New Jersey

Get all of your New Jersey jokes out of the way now. Finished? This one is no joke. Workers at a New Jersey waste water treatment plant (OK, you can do one more joke on that being redundant) report a square piece of metal fell from space and no one, official or unofficial, seems to know where it came from.

Mysterious Metal Object Falls From Sky in New Jersey

Steve Bronowich, operations foreman at Secaucus Treatment Works, reported finding the 5-by-5 inch unidentified falling object on October 8. It fell from the sky without warning and hit two pieces of machinery. Plant worker Vic Suppa says he heard a “pretty loud bang” and saw the object “flipping through the air.” The square appears to be made of ceramic, metal and rubberlike layers. After finding it, Bronowich did what anyone who finds a strange object falling from the sky would do – he looked it up on the Internet.
What they show online for a space shuttle tile, it’s a little thicker than what we actually have here, but it certainly looks like it. I don’t know if it’s actually a tile, but I know it did come out of the sky.

Here’s what a NASA spokesperson had to say about this:


We have not flown the space shuttle since 2011, we had a highly accurate accounting of the tiles, and this does not appear to be a tile.

Human Meat Found In McDonald’s Meat Factory!


The mystery ingredients at McDonald’s fast food restaurant may have just gotten even worse if food inspector report is to be believed. The ingredient list in McDonald’s history has for a long time been considered to be highly suspect. But now, it’s ‘Human Meat’ which tops the list!

Among other sources, it is widely known, that an audio tape is circulating and that on it is the unsteady voice of a gentleman claiming that he knows McDonald’s is definitely using ‘Human Meat’ in it’s food processing centers. All as a part of their in-house menu.

While this report in unsettling and startles, in reality it is unsubstantiated. In it’s past, McDonald’s has also been accused of using worm meat fillers. Gross!

A news service is saying that Quality Control Inspectors in Oklahoma City have allegedly found both human and horse meat in a McDonald’s meat factory. In several trucks set to make deliveries to fast foodrestaurants, it is reported, ‘Human Meat’ has also been lately found.


If various reports are to be believed, authorities have discovered ‘Human Meat’ in 90% of the locationsinspected and 65% were found to be harboring horse flesh.

FBI Agent Lloyd Harrison said, ” … The worst part of it is, that not only is it ‘Human Meat,’ it’s child meat. The body parts were found across USA factories and were deemed too small to be adult body parts. This is truly horrible. … ”

Cannibalism in humanity goes back for thousands of years. It was in 2013 that a North Korean man was charged and then executed for killing his children for food. Cannibalism has also been seen in the USA in the forms of Albert Fish and Jeffery Dahmer.

A person might be considered foolish if they were not to realize that in some places this sort of thing goes on. Still, questions need answered. … Where are the children from? Were they deceased before they arrived at the factory? For how long has this been going on? Authorities hope to answer these questions as soon as is possible.

He was a Captain in the Air Force

Albuquerque, New Mexico
