A LEADING scientist and spokesman against the authenticity of the Turin Shroud has now concluded it could be the burial gown of Jesus.
In 1988 Ray Rogers was at the forefront of the carbon dating of the relic depicting a Christ-like image. It concluded the wrap was a medieval hoax.
Now, from beyond the grave, he has admitted the shroud is far older than results suggested — and could be the genuine article as many Christians claim.
Ray was a director of the Shroud of Turin Research Project (STRP) that concluded the 14ft-long linen cloth was fake.
