Quote# 3769

The Shroud [of Turin] is also contrary to the Bible, which says that Jesus was 'bound ... in wrappings (plural)... Shroud proponents can explain this away all they want, but the Bible should be used to judge claimed artefacts; not the artefacts used to judge the Bible.

Even if Jesus was bound in several rappings, the Shroud of Turin could be the innermost wrapping. If it were old enough, that is.

The Bible can't even be used to judge the order of creation, it shouldn't be used to judge anything.
