4.0 out of 5 stars Leonardo did it!, January 1, 2004
This review is from: Turin Shroud: In Whose Image? the Truth Behind the Centuries-Long Conspiracy of Silence (Paperback)
As an atheist I'm one of those that was satisfied after reading this book as far as accepting that the shroud is a fake and that Leonardo da Vinci produced it. In "A CONCISE HISTORY OF PHOTOGRAPHY," by Helmut Gernsheim, 3rd Rev. Ed. ©1965, '71, '86 - Dover Publications. On page 4 it says that da Vinci did camera obscura in late 1400s, early 1500s. In "PHOTOGRAPHY UNTIL NOW," by John Szarkowsky, The MOMA (Museum Of Modern Art) NY, ©1989 - Page 12, "...Given the intimate coherence of Western science during the four centuries between Brother Roger and Sir Francis, it seems likely that the basic principle of the camera obscura was fairly widely known;³ nevertheless no clear descripion of the phenomenon seems to predate that of Leonardo da Vinci, who about 1500 wrote: 'When the images of objects which are illuminated penetrate through a small hole into a very dark room, these images are received in the inside of the room on a white paper, situated some distance form the opening. You will see on the paper all these objects in their proper form and colour. They will be reduced in size, they will present themselves in a reversed position, owing to the intersection of the rays,4' Leonardo, however, ws so secretive a man that he wrote backward so it happened that Giovanni Battista della Porta, who described the camera obscura more than half a century after Leonardo, was long credited as its inventor." We have science to guide us, yet using science it has been proven that there is no historical Jesus and is clearly a human invention. The New Testament says that two clothes were used for Jesus, a body and a separate head cloth. Even though there is no evidence for Jesus, and the religious (christians, mainly) are ruled by the bible, they have to accept this and forget about the Turin shroud being the real thing. You can't have it both ways.

as for the shroud of turin being real...it is as real as it gets, jesus and the father ( god ) are one ( the same ). explanation
for the image...it is supernatural, something none of us can comprehend. this exact same image, believe it or not, i have actually seen once and only once late at night standing next to my bedside.
most people will probably say what a ferry tale, or this guy has been smokin somethin... no just a normal person like
you, who has been born again and saved from my sins, with jesus ( god ) living inside me. when you are trually born again,
you will literally feel jesus come into you ( into your heart ), by an amazing rush of love. it is like the feeling of being in
love multiplied by a billion, that is the best way i can describe it.
the choice is there for each one of us to make, i cannot force you to accept jesus, the choice is yours and yours alone.
you can sincerely ask jesus to save you from your sins, and you will have an amazing eternal life forever. or god honors your
choice of wanting nothing to do with his son jesus, and the end result is, you will pay for your sins yourself. either way we
have to pay for our sins, i am very thankful to jesus that he has paid mine for me. it will be too late to believe in jesus,
after you die. you will have made your very regretful choice, but rest assured you will believe in him then.
would not god tell us if all or many roads lead to heaven>? he has told all of us that there is only one way, and
that is thru his son------john 14:6 lastly, if other ways lead to heaven, why would he put his son jesus thru all that
incredible pain, torment, and death?..........
