Archeology 201 Guidelines

If Indiana Jones happened to be a member of Tweb, this is where he'd hang out.

Welcome to the Archeology forum. Were you out doing some gardening and dug up a relic from the distant past? would you like to know more about Ancient Egypt? Did you think Memphis was actually a city in Tennessee?

Well, for the answers to those and other burning questions you've found the right digs.

Our forum rules apply here too, if you haven't read them now is the time.

Here is short proof the Shroud of Turin is a fake.

    I think he missed or misunderstood my use of the serial comma, also known as the Oxford or Harvard comma. In other words, he understood me as supposedly saying that the video did not have anything meaningful to add (despite the fact that I said it was interesting) instead of my saying that I did not have anything meaningful to add (in response to his implicit complaint that on one had commented). One could argue that my comment was technically ambiguous, and that his interpretation of my comment was not impossible from a purely grammatical perspective. From a linguistic perspective, however, it cannot be a meaningful interpretation of my comment given the actual content of his question and my response. Help me, I'm stuck in an exegetical vortex!

    Seriously? Delusional? What particular point is it that you wanted me to make for you in this discussion?

    I've seen it, and agree with robrecht. What do you think was meaningful about it?

    Not many people are going to watch a freaking 80 minute video. This is a discussion forum, not a movie theater.

    I can't do a lot of videos - and you can forget anything that long. I'd be glad to watch it at some later, better connected, date.

    This is a disagreement not debunk.
    Quit back editing after a reply.

    It's a debunk. You just don't want to admit you were wrong.

    What evidence is there that this DNA originated from blood rather than some other source?

    Then neither is McCrone's testing - chain of evidence is in question and that makes the results inadmissible.

    Not speculation - blood doesn't stay liquid that long (I do venipunctures and serum exams for a living), dead bodies are terrible sources of blood (it coagulates quickly - it's supposed to), and there's no evidence that the Romans would have let someone bleed their victims (or any subsequent rulers, for that matter) making getting human blood difficult. Since human blood is indistinguishable from animal blood up until the 19th century, the use of human blood would have been unnecessary to the purpose of the hypothetical forger.

    Now go read the links and quit stalling.

The contamination was a known factor BEFORE the exam - which means McCrone didn't do his homework, as previously stated.
    Your claim is hearsay, not admissible.

    Not human blood, no it wasn't. Heck, I don't know of any citations of animal blood used in pigmentation (blood stains, it won't paint well) or of animal DNA found in the blood stains. A medieval forger - or a 1st Century forger - would be incredibly unlikely to use human blood. The law frowns on most ways of obtaining it and why bother when the slaughter house is just down the street?

    Already done - here you go again:

    Debunking the article you cited: http://shroud.com/bar.htm#shanks

    And you can just find it yourself because there are too many papers on too many topics to cite here so pick a paper: http://shroud.com/papers.htm
    This is a disagreement not debunk.
