The Shroud of Turin may be the real burial cloth of Jesus.The carbon dating, once seemingly proving it was a medieval fake, is now widely thought of as suspect and meaningless. These are often very tricky questions to answer and frequently arise in judicial contexts.
Ink Aging Approach Various methods have been published to measure aging processes that occur in ink on documents. Aginsky is the author of two ink aging methods that analyze ink volatile components (not ink dye components*) and that have been tested and applied to actual cases by multiple forensic laboratories.Because of this, 14-C and it's breakdown product 12-C, typically stay in balance.Carbon is passed between the ocean, atmosphere, and living things in the "Carbon Cycle".Scientists are drawing "logical" conclusions from an assumption of 14-C's half-life! Surrounding soil, water, vegetation and/or animal matter can even contaminate samples!When this contamination occurs, it mixes the date for the item with the date of the contaminant.Carbon dating, used since 1948, is currently the main method of testing artifacts for age.
