Matt Wykoff, Round 3

My favorite Catholic wingnut, Matt Wykoff, is once again sending me unsolicited emails that are stuff to the brim with the bizarre and the deranged. This may be my favorite claim of all: That the Shroud of Turin is authentic and that “there was no entropy during the formation of the image.” I have no idea what that could possibly mean. He doesn’t either, of course. Here’s the first screed:

1. Just as Geocentrism is scientifically irrefutable : Science demonstrates the Resurrection and Crucifixion of the Almighty God and Lord Jesus Christ and that is the One and Only True God. Easter really is the most scientific thing there is. There is Absolutely No Salvation Outside the Catholic Church see www.vaticancatholic.com the central truths of Christianity – the miraculous Life, Miracles, Death, Crucifixion, and Resurrection of God Lord Jesus Christ are scientifically demonstrated. Science absolutely proves the Life, Crucifixion, Death, and Resurrection of the Our Lord Jesus Christ (the Christian one and not the Protestant one who doesn’t even exist and is maybe perhaps imaginary or just an evil spirit). Both the Spiritual/Sacred and physical/natural sciences prove this. In the post script I’ll deal only with the physical science part of it.

2. You probably have a short attention span. Then read the bolded portions. The world is a hater of Truth such as you are. The anti-Christ media loves running blasphemous programs, as this is their modus operandi. St. John 15:18-20 “If the world hate you, know ye, that it hath hated me before you. If you had been of the world, the world would love its own: but because you are not of the world, but I have chosen you out of the world, therefore the world hateth you. Remember my word that I said to you: The servant is not greater than his master. If they have persecuted me, they will also persecute you: if they have kept my word, they will keep yours also.” As you should know, carbon dating is quackery but the world still rides along with the already invalidated fiction of the 1988 Shroud of Turin carbon dating. In 2008 Aug. 15th the Los Alamos National Laboratory released its findings that scientifically proved and confirmed that the material used for the radiocarbon dating of the Shroud in 1988 was not from the Shroud’s fabric. The Shroud is made of linen, but the samples used in the 1988 carbon dating were composed of cotton! The Los Alamos National Laboratory’s work confirms the research published in Thermochimica Acta (Jan. 2005) by the late Raymond Rogers: an atheist chemist who had studied actual C-14 samples and concluded the sample was not part of the original cloth. Months before the Los Alamos Lab came out with the findings, interestingly in March 2008 Christopher Ramsey the head of the Oxford Radiocarbon unit Accelerator which participated in the 1988 Carbon 14 dating, said the now discredited 1988 carbon dating was wrong and that further research is certainly needed by experts to ascertain the history of the Shroud. Even before the Los Alamos National Laboratory came out with its scientific findings, many experts were already proving how the 1988 dating was totally worthless and a fraud. Many scientists and experts have identified the Fold Axis and the Zero Thread – the point at which the weaving pattern turns in a different direction- of the 1988 carbon 14 samples. It is a coordinate system that allows scientists to compare the pieces like finger prints! The 1988 samples are NOT identical to the Shroud’s coordinate system. When the Shroud pieces were being cut, the process was videotaped and it took 8 hours, but the cameras were then turned off when the Shroud pieces were taken to another room and “put in 3 different containers” 1 for each lab. Experts and scientists point out manipulations have taken place.
