How tediously silly can you get?

This man thinks that the Turing Shroud fooled people into thinking that Jesus rose from the dead.Illusion? The image of Christ as it appears on the shroud. Christians believe it was the burial cloth that wrapped Christ's body after the crucifixion

His theory is that in the mind of a person 2,000 years ago, the image on the Shroud would have been astonishing - far beyond their normal experiences and truly unsettling.

'They saw the image on the cloth as the living double of Jesus,' he said.

Because people 2000 years ago were unable to tell the difference between a person and a crude two dimensional image of a person.

He ‘explains’:

'Back then images had a psychological presence, they were seen as part of a separate plain of existence, as having a life of their own.'

I don’t know what any of that is supposed to mean, but I think people would have been able to tell the difference between a picture and a person.

Needless to say, there’s some conspiracy crap about the shroud’s dating. Whatever the guy needs to ignore the facts.

This is a life profoundly wasted.
