PRESENTATION: FR. ROBERT SPITZER S.J.
Expert Carbon Dating Evidence Presented by Joe Marino
Can science prove that this burial shroud, imprinted with marks that reflect the wounds of crucifixion, was used to cover Jesus of Nazareth?
In this presentation on the Shroud of Turin Father Spitzer points out a significant flaw in the 1988 carbon testing that dated the origin of the Shroud to the middle ages. He then discusses new data that strongly suggests that not only is the Shroud a first century artifact but quite possibly a relic of the resurrection.
Father Robert J. Spitzer is a Jesuit priest, philosopher, educator, author, speaker, and former President of Gonzaga University. He is founder and currently active as president of the Magis Center of Reason and Faith. In 2010 Fr. Spitzer defended God’s existence against physicist Stephen Hawking on CNN’s “Larry King Live.”
