Monograph Publishing: Longtime Shroud of Turin expert, author Joseph G.Marino, has endorsed a recent Petition to Pope Francis and a proposal by one of the world’s leading authorities on the Shroud, attorney Mark Antonacci, to scientifically test the famous linen cloth long-reputed to be the burial garment of Jesus Christ. St. Louis, MO (PRWEB) October 29, 2013 Joseph G. Marino, theologian and Shroud of Turin expert, has had over 35 years of researching the famous cloth purported to be...

Monograph Publishing: Religious beliefs have caused more conflicts, hatred and war than any other factor in the history of mankind, with the number of conflicts and their potential for nuclear destruction increasing at an alarming rate. Shroud of Turin expert, Mark Antonacci, contends that scientific information acquired by modern technology could lessen or eliminate this historic problem. St. Louis, Missouri (PRWEB) May 21, 2013 A wide variety of religions exist throughout the world today...

Maya Long Count, Modern European Calendars Synchronized With Wood
2013-04-12 18:20:20

Brett Smith for redOrbit.com — Your Universe Online Throughout history, different civilizations have had their own calendars they´ve used to mark time, with some civilizations going through multiple calendars during the course of their history. According to a new report in the journal Scientific Reports, a team of international scientists have used several metrics to successfully synchronize the modern European calendar with the Long Count Calendar of the Ancient Maya....

El Sidron cave

April Flowers for redOrbit.com - Your Universe Online A new study, led by the University of Oviedo, Spain, has been able to accurately determine the age of Neanderthal remains found in the El Sidron cave of Asturias, Spain. Previous studies have provided inexact measurements for the remains. The new study found that a pre-treatment to reduce modern carbon contamination has lowered the margin of error from 40,000 to 3,200 years. One of the westernmost Neanderthal sites on the Iberian...

New research in The FASEB Journal, based on carbon-14 dating, shows that despite repeated high-impact loading, the Achilles tendon is not renewed, but stays the same throughout adult life Notorious among athletes and trainers as career killers, Achilles tendon injuries are among the most devastating. Now, by carbon testing tissues exposed to nuclear fallout in post WWII tests, scientists have learned why: Like our teeth and the lenses in our eyes, the Achilles tendon is a tissue that does...

Searching For Richard III
2012-11-15 22:47:41

Alan McStravick for redOrbit.com — Your Universe Online The humpbacked Richard III was the last of the Yorkist kings of England. His overly ambitious rise to power, involving the assumed assassinations of his much younger cousins, and his hubris ultimately led to his downfall and death at the hands of Henry Tudor of Wales on Ambien Hill in 1485. His reign had lasted two years. He was 32 years of age. While he was felled on the battlefield by his enemies, his body was not...

Annual strata in the Japanese Lake Suigetsu enable a more accurate calibration of radiocarbon datings By using a new series of measurements of radiocarbon dates on seasonally laminated sediments from Lake Suigetsu in Japan, a more precise calibration of radiocarbon dating will be possible. In combination with an accurate count of the seasonal layered deposits in the lake, the study resulted in an unprecedented precision of the known 14C method with which it is now possible to date older...

Radio Carbon Dating Improved With Sediment Measurementss
2012-10-19 13:02:37

April Flowers for redOrbit.com - Your Universe Online A research team from Oxford University's Radiocarbon Accelerator Unit has found a more accurate benchmark for dating materials, especially for older objects, from a series of radiocarbon measurements from Japan's Lake Suigetsu. As far back as 1993, researchers realized sediment cores from Lake Suigetsu would be useful for radiocarbon dating. However, the initial efforts encountered technical problems. The current team extracted...

Ancient Carbon Resurfacing In Lakes
2012-10-05 08:04:08

April Flowers for redOrbit.com - Your Universe Online A new study is challenging current models of long-term carbon storage in lakes and rivers by revealing that a significant amount of carbon released into the atmosphere from lakes and rivers in Southern Quebec, Canada is approximately 1,000 to 3,000 years old. Current models and previous studies have shown there to be a tight coupling between the terrestrial and aquatic environment. So tight, in fact, that they expect aquatic bacteria...

Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution (WHOI) scientists have found that carbon is stored in the soils and sediments of the Ganges-Brahmaputra basin for a surprisingly long time, making it likely that global warming could destabilize the pool of carbon there and in similar places on Earth, potentially increasing the rate of CO2 release into the atmosphere. The study, published in the current online edition of Nature Geoscience, examined the radiocarbon content of river sediments collected...
