According to Alberto Carpinteri, from the Politecnico di Torino in Italy, a massive earthquake, measuring 8.2 on the Richter Scale, in 33 A. in Jerusalem (soon after the time of the Crucifixion) could have led to the release of free neutrons, attaching to other atoms, to form carbon isotopes, a process called neutron radiation.

How do scientists know how old an object or human remains are?
P group out of the project after the sampling phase. In the end, a compromise solution was reached with the so-called "Turin protocol" that discarding the blind-test method would expose the results - whatever they may be - to suspicion of unreliability.
or that put forth by the laboratories, would be executed.
Gove consulted numerous laboratories able already at the time (1982) to carbon-date small fabric samples. Aware of the great marketing opportunity that public interest about the results would bring, laboratories competed fiercely; to avoid conflict, it was decided to let all interested laboratories perform the tests at the same time (this was also an attempt to obtain independent, yet replicable, results). We are faced with actual blackmail: unless we accept the conditions imposed by the laboratories, they will start a marketing campaign of accusations against the Church, which they will portray as scared of the truth and enemy of science.
group published the list of tests to be performed on the shroud; these aimed to explain how the image was impressed onto the cloth, to verify the relic's purported origin, and to identify better-suited conservation methods. group, proposing an alternative program: Carlos Chagas Filho, neurologist and president of the Pontifical Academy of Sciences, reluctantly approved the protocol, which factually put the S. A meeting with ecclesiastic authorities took place on September 29th, 1986 to determine which of the two protocols, the original proposed by S. It remains unclear why the protocol was changed after its public adoption; unofficially, it was suggested that the Church may have wanted to reduce the amount of shroud material to be removed(t)he Church must respond to the challenge of those who want it to stop the process, who would want us to show that the Church fears the science.
