    he Shroud of Turin is authentic. That, atleast, is the latest pronouncement from a

    group of Italian scientists who have undertakena series of advanced tests on the purported bu-rial shroud of Jesus.

    The 14-foot linen cloth, preserved in ItalysTurin cathedral, has, for centuries, been a light-ning rod for controversy. For believers, the

    cloths imbedded image is that of Jesus him-self. For skeptics, it is nothing more than med-ieval fakery. The evidence itself is disputed.

    In 1988, a radio carbon dating study ap-peared to show the cloth was a counterfeitcreated in the thirteenth or fourteenth century.That study, though, has been called into ques-tion by evidence that the testing samples fromthe cloth had been rewoven into the fabricto repair fire damage, suggesting that the orig-inal shroud remains to be properly dated.

    Professor Paolo Di Lazzaro, who headedthe team conducting the new study, told



    Turin Shroud Is Real, Implies New StudyBritains Daily Telegram that the image on cloth could not possibly have been faked wany technology available in the Middle Ag According to experts from Italys NatioAgency for New Technologies, Energy and Stainable Development, The double im(front and back) of a scourged and crucifman, barely visible on the linen cloth of

    Shroud of Turin, has many physical and cheical characteristics that are so particular that staining ... is impossible to obtain in a labotory.

    In fact, say the scientists, the exact shatexture, and depth of the image found on cloth could have been created only by somsort of electromagnetic energy such as mioccur in a brief flash at a short wavelengStopping short of declaring the shroud to evidence of the resurrection itself, the team conclude that the relic could very well be actual burial cloth of Jesus.

    he questionwhats behind the Great Pyr-amids secret doors?could be finally an-

    wered in 2012, but, for now at least, the mys-ery and the controversy remain. While some,ke Zahi Hawass, the flamboyant former leaderf Egypts Supreme Council of Antiquities,

    have announced that they expect to find amummy, others, like engineer ChristopherDunn, expect to find the remains of ancientlectrical technology (see The Pyramid Elec-ric, A.R. #90). After many delays, includinghose caused by Egypts political turmoil of011, the so-called Djedi project is expected toesume its robotic exploration of the two longnd mysterious shafts sloping upward from theouthern and northern walls of the Queens

    hamber.In January of 2011, a robotic camera de-igned by Rob Richardson of Leeds Universitylimbed the southern shaft to a so-calleddoor with two metal handles, first discov-red and photographed by German engineer

    Rudolf Gantenbrink in 1993. Followup at-empts in 2002 managed to look past the doornly to see another door. The 2011 effort suc-eeded in inserting a snake camera beneath theecond door and in photographing the spaceehind it. Revealed were metal connections tohe metal door handles, as well as some kind ofainted marks on the walls. Though many

    uestions had been raised, the project was

    Doors Anticipated

    forced to come to a halt bu Egypts tumul-tuous political. Now, however, a new regime inEgyptian antiquities (post Hawass) is in chargeand the exploration is expected to resumesometime this year.

    Long believed to contain many secret cham-bers, the Great Pyramid may finally be close torevealing at least one. As professional tool de-signer Dunn reported, nothing has so far con-tradicted his theory that the structure is, in fact,a great machine capable of producing great

    quantities of energy. For Dunn the two metalhandles on the doors of both the southern andnorthern shafts from the Queens chamber arelikely to be electrodes in some kind of circuit which could be closed by fluid rising up theshafts. The doors of both shafts are at the sameheight, so fluid rising up both would closeboth circuits simultaneously. For more on this,including diagrams, read DunnsA.R. article. Asfor Hawasss expectation that a mummy awaitsthe explorers, he hasnt been proven wrong yet,either. Now, however, he will, like the rest ofus, be forced to learn the facts from someoneover whom he has little influence.

    he fabled Ark of the Covenant may be infor public viewing in 2012. That is, if the

    story told by Ethiopian Christians is true. Ac-cording to the British newspaper, The Daily

    Mail, the relic housed in the chapel next to thechurch of St. Mary of Zion in Aksum, the cap-


    itol of Ethiopia, will probablybe moved soon, inasmuch asthe old building has a leaking

    roof. Currently, while a newchapel is being built, a tar-

    paulin covers the old one.As recounted in the Old

    Testament, the Ark carried theTen Commandments given toMoses on Mount Sinai. It was

    made of acacia and platedwith gold. Two golden angelssat on top. According to the

    Bible, and as demonstrated inthe movie Raiders of the Lost Ark, it was verypowerful, and if touched by anyone other thana priest it could kill. Certainly gold plating onboth sides of the walls of a wooden containercould have created a virtual capacitor capableof carrying a very significant static charge.

    Some scholars have speculated that it was, infact, some kind of Egyptian priestly device sincethe Egyptians had similar objects, and sinceMoses was brought up in Egypt.

    The ark was kept in the first temple of Soloman in Jerusalem but was lost when the city was invaded by the Babylonians in the sixt

    century BC. Ethiopians believe that descendantof Solomon and the Queen of Sheba eventuallybrought the ark to their country where it habeen kept ever since. Only the elderly prieswho watches over it is permitted to view it.

    The current chapel was designed in the1960s by emperor Hailie Selassie, but apparentlyits ability to withstand the weather was not upto the standards of the ancient temple buildersNo one knows exactly when it will be moved toits new quarters, but photographers are standingby.

    The Stonehenge

    Mystery Deepenst seems that we have finally figured out for surewhere the fabled bluestones of Stonehenge ac

    tually came from.Robert Ixer and Richard Bevins, British geolo-

    gists, have used state-of-the-art testing to show theorigin of the bluestones to within 70 meters. Anoutcropping called Craig Rhos-y-Felin close to thetown of Pont Saeson in Pem-brokeshire in Wales is thespot. That is about 160 milesfrom Stonehenge. The blue-stones weigh about four tonseach. Experts are baffled asto exactly how they couldhave been moved. That theywere moved and over a greatdistance, there can be nodoubt.

    As for the great sarsen

    stones of the site whichweigh in excess of 40 tonseach, they came from quar-ries somewhat nearerabout20 miles away. They were also erected about 200years after the bluestones, we are told. But still noone knows how their transportation could havebeen achieved either.

    Some have argued that it must not have beenvery difficult for megalithic builders to move suchlarge stonesin fact, it must have been easy. Oth-erwise why bother? Is it possible that they had ac-cess to some kind of technology, now lost to theirhighly advanced descendants?
