In 2005, seventeen years later, the Cold Case File of the Shroud was reopened. Ray Rogers, a highly recognized thermal chemist with over fifty published papers to his credit, conducted micro-chemical analysis. He compared samples from the main body of the Shroud to thread samples taken from the area cut for carbon dating and determined they were not the same! How could this happen?
The carbon labs were warned to be extra careful about where they cut the cloth for dating. It had been handled hundreds of times over the centuries and could have been subject to contamination and repair. They didn’t listen, instead they cut only one sample from the outside corner edge exactly where it had been handled the most and exactly where it would have most likely been repaired. The most important carbon dating event of the 20th century was limited to one questionable sample. Now it turns out that corner WAS repaired!
