  • Finding Jesus

    I hope I am placing this in the correct sub-forum. If not, please place it in the appropriate one . There is a new series premiering on CNN tonight called "Finding Jesus". The first episode will be looking at the Shroud of Turin. I will be catching it tonight. Will anyone else be doing the same?

        No cable here either.

        Oddly enough I heard of this show! Only because there were commercials while waiting at the airport on the overhead screens, lol.
        No Silicon Heaven? Preposterous! Where would all the calculators go?

          Let CNN die. It's on life support as it is.

            Well I just got done watching it. I will give my thoughts for what it's worth. It was actually pretty good and left open for interpretation. I was surprised it wasn't rubbish like I thought it would be. The first half hour of it were reenactments showing how the marks could get onto the Shroud from the crucifixion. Then the second half went through the testing of the Shroud and the evidence of it might being a forgery. But then, they brought up the Sudarium of Oviedo and how the blood marks from that exactly match those of the Shroud. They added that since the Sudarium was found in literature dating back over 700 years ago, the dating of the Shroud might be wrong.

            All in all, I thought it was pretty good. For those that couldn't see it, I hope it gets uploaded to YouTube at some point so you can. It was better than expected.

                    I rarely do. Unless there is a documentary or movie I really want to see. The last one I watched was Eaten Alive on the Discovery Channel. Rubbish.
