Did anyone see the History Channel program "The Real Face of Jesus?" This was an interesting show where state of the art computer technology was used to extrapolate the face on The Shroud of Turin. Very interesting program, and for once not Anti-Catholic or Christian.

yes. wasn't that part of using the Shroud of Turin and "decoding" information they found imprinted by someone...?  It lends more credibility to the authenticity of the Shroud that it was not "merely painted" but transformed somehow....

D'oh!!
I did not see that!!   Angry  Angry

I do have a photo from the shroud I found on the internet several years ago.  It is just the face of Jesus and I have it framed in my prayer room as just a reminder.

Hope they rerun the program.

I just went to the web site and the picture of Jesus sent chills down my back.  I know that I will be ordering this video.

Awesome . . . and to think there are still those who think the Shroud was painted.

Not sure how many people saw the other show where they talked about the controversy over the carbon dating...  It would appear that the corner that the samples came from may have been repaired with modern cotton fibers using a common repair technique called reweaving, in which new fibers are woven into the old to make a patch that is virtually invisible.

One of the scientists from the dating project got the samples back out to look and confirmed that there were indeed cotton fibers with a slight color mismatch in the sample!

Did anyone get a chance to catch the airing that was on this Saturday night?

I did and it was awesome.  There was very little that pointed to the Shroud being a fake.  I was surprised how positive it was.  I was also very moved on the image of the man in the shroud as it was presented by the computer expert.  It was very close to what Mel Gibson gave us in the PASSION OF THE CHRIST.
