Hypothesis to Explain the Main Mysteries of the Shroud of Turin

Ancient tradition claims the Shroud of Turin is the burial cloth of Jesus Christ. This claim is supported by the full-size front and dorsal (back) images on the Shroud of a man that was crucified exactly as the New Testament says Jesus was crucified. In 1978, experiments on the Shroud by the Shroud of Turin Research Project (STURP) indicated the images are not due to pigment, any liquid, a scorch, or photography. The three main mysteries of the Shroud of Turin are: 1) how the images were formed, 2) how to explain the carbon dating of the Shroud, and 3) why the blood that would have dried on the body is now on the Shroud. The vertically collimated radiation burst (VCRB) hypothesis proposes that: 1) the images were formed when charged particles in the radiation burst caused a static discharge from the top fibers facing the body, which caused electrical heating and/or ozone to discolor the fibers that form the front and dorsal images, 2) neutrons in the radiation burst were absorbed in the trace amount of N-14 in the Shroud to produce new C-14 in the fibers that shifted the carbon date forward from its true date, and 3) if the vertically collimated radiation burst were sufficiently brief and intense, it could have thrust the dried blood vertically off the body onto the Shroud.

He has been studying the Shroud since 2014 and has written 32 papers on the Shroud, as of April 2022, that are available on the research page of his website http://www.shroudresearch.net.
