New controversial hypothesis tries to explain the Shroud of Turin


This new hypothesis generated quickly another controversial interpretation because some scientists say some major questions are unanswered. Scientists can look at the carbon-14 concentration in organic archaeological materials to estimate age. Carbon -14 is created under normal conditions when the neutrons from Cosmic rays that collide with nitrogen atoms in the atmosphere. But now, it is considered that the high pressure waves generated by an earthquake can produce neutron emissions. The sustainers of the new explanation for the Shroud of Turin say that neutrons emitted this way interacted directly with nitrogen atoms in the fibers, induced chemical reactions and created a distinctive image face conducting at the same time to an actual wrong radiocarbon dating.
However, not all the aspects being clarified, Gordon Cook, a professor of environmental geochemistry at the University of Glasgow concluded: “If you want to believe in the Shroud of Torino, you believe in it !”
