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.The statement of Damon, Donahue, Gore, and eighteen others (1989) that “The results provide conclusive evidence that the linen of the Shroud of Turin is mediaeval” needs to be reconsidered in the light of the evidence produced by our use of robust statistical techniques. Ray Rogers, a chemist at the Los Alamos National Laboratory, who accepted the carbon dating, sought to disprove what he considered to be Marino’s and Benford’s crazy explanation from what he called the “lunatic fringe.” What Rogers discovered was that the crazy idea seemed to be right.He concluded that the sample used for carbon dating was not representative of the cloth. Moreover, one of the chemical differences, the amount of vanillin, provided a new clue about the cloth’s age.This is the conclusion from an eighteen-page paper, “Carbon Dating of the Shroud of Turin: Partially Labelled Regressors and the Design of Experiments,” co-authored by Marco Riani, Anthony C.

Now Carpinteri’s team have hypothesized that high-frequency pressure waves generated in the Earth’s crust during earthquakes are the source of such neutron emissions.
The scientists base the idea on research into piezonuclear fission reactions which occur when brittle rock is crushed under enormous pressure.
Neutron radiation is usually generated by nuclear fusion or fission, and may be produced by nuclear reactors or particle accelerators.

Nearly two decades later, whenever carbon 14 dating is discussed in high school or college classrooms, students are likely to raise a hand and ask some probing questions: What about the Shroud of Turin? If not, how could so many scientists from so many reputable radiocarbon dating laboratories screw up so badly?
