Shroud turin dating radiocarbon
The neutron flux argument was first proposed by Harvard University physicist Thomas J. O., 1982, "Sindon: A Layman's Guide to the Shroud of Turin," Synergy Books: Tempe AZ, p.86; Rinaldi, P.

Phillips pointed out that "If the shroud of Turin is in fact the burial cloth of Christ" then the resurrection of Jesus' dead body "may also have radiated neutrons" which could "have converted enough C to give an apparent carbon-dated age of 670 years". Robert Hedges replied in the same issue, that it would be "an amazing coincidence that the neutron dose should be so exactly appropriate to give the most likely date on historical grounds" and that it "implies that the dose has been `fine-tuned' to better than one part in a hundred million" (my emphasis) .

Gove echoed Hedges' points and added his own "most devastating argument against Phillips' idea [which] was the fact that the samples were taken at just the right spot on the shroud to produce its historic date. & Malfi, P., 2015, "The Shroud of Turin: First Century after Christ! A sample taken closer to the image would have produced an even more modern date-even a date into the future! " (my emphasis) .■ The midpoint of 1260-1390 is 1325 ±65 years[#10(1) & #1], which `just happens' to be a mere ~30 years before the Shroud first appeared in undisputed history in Lirey, France, in c. This is the major flaw in the neutron flux theory, and also of all carbon contamination theories. However, scientific fraud is by no means unknown, as the editors of science journals are well aware. One important consideration weighs in favour of the possibility of deception.
Moreover, textile expert Mechthild Flury-Lemberg inspected the Shroud as part of its 2002 restoration and she denies there is any evidence of reweaving.• Neutron flux at Jesus' resurrection created new carbon 14.
Most sindonologists regard these fraud theories as plainly incredible.
