The Shroud of Turin

Scientists have long held the debate about the Shroud of Turin. Was it worn by Christ as he dies upon the cross? "Carbon Dating," the latest technological development in the scientific community has shown that the blood on the shroud is actually from 1400AD and that the material was woven much after Christ was gone. I guess we can thank science for nipping these rumours in the bud.

Meh, again, there is as much backing up your claim as there is backing up the Catholics. Straight dope has an article on this as well that's pretty interesting.

While some of the mystery surrounding the shroud has been clarified by science, there's plenty of questions that they had no logical answer for. Now that's interestingly Interesting!
