  1. Regarding the shroud of Turin, research points to Leonardo Da Vinci as the fake hoaxer of this image.In 1988 carbon dating proved to all but a few desperate believers that it is an artefact of medieval or Renaissance times.The image behaves like a photograph,it has a negative effect,as it can be seen in great detail in the photographic negative.The image on the shroud is actually that of Da Vinci himself, and displays a strong heretical belief, and a great innovative artistic skill
