Proof of Jesus?

 

Personally, I don’t believe in any type of religion but I respect those that do. They believe what they want no matter that there really is no proof regarding the existence of God. What is a generally accepted fact, though, is that there was a man named Jesus.

Scientists and religious people think they have a lot of facts and proof about Jesus. One of them is called stigmata. Stigmata are bodily marks in locations corresponding to the cruxifiction wounds of Jesus! Stigmata is the plural of the Greek word stigma, meaning a mark that might have been used for identification of an animal or slave. Stigmata are usually associated with the Roman Catholic faith. Almost all reports of stigmatas are from Roman Catholic people.
More proof that has to do with Jesus, they state, is the Shroud of Turin. The Shroud of Turin is an old linen cloth that shows the image of a crucified man. A man that millions believe to be Jesus. It is also said to have been the cloth that wrapped his crucified body. Modern scientists have completed hundreds of thousands of hours of detailed study and research on the Shroud. But dissapointingly, there are no signs of blood. Also, the shroud has been carbon dated to the 12th or 13th century, proving that it could not have been Jesus’ death shroud. 
We have more proof, but the last one I’m going to cover is the Priory of Sion. The Priory of Sion is supposedly a secret society that most historians have determined is fake. The Priory supposedly protects and keeps secret the descendents of Jesus. It was prominently featured in Dan Brown’s blockbuster book The DaVinci Code.

So even though many Christians think of these things as proof, most of them  have been debunked by  objective people. The shroud has been proven to be 1200-1300 years older than Jesus, the Priory of Sion has been outed as fictional, and even the Catholic church doesn’t believe in stigmata. So when people ask the question “Is it true?”, I ask the same one.

    Quote: “The shroud (Shroud of Turin) has been proven to be 1200-1300 years older than Jesus, ”

    I think you mean dated to the years 1200-1300AD – If it was 1200-1300 years older than Jesus it would have been dated to 1200-1300 BC

    The correct wording should be “proven to be (only) 700-800 years old”

  2. the shroud and is dated to around 100 years before Leonardo was born”:”But Professor John Jackson, director of the Turin Shroud Centre of Colorado , who believes the item dates from the time of Jesus’s crucifixion, dismissed the Leonardo hypothesis. ‘It is based on some very poor scientific and historical scholarship,’ he said. The earliest known record of the shroud appears on a commemorative medallion struck in the mid-14th century and on display at the Cluny Museum Paris, he added. ‘It clearly shows clerics holding up the shroud and is dated to around 100 years before Leonardo was born.” (Derbyshire, 2009, ” Is the Turin Shroud really a self-portrait by Renaissance man, Leonardo da Vinci? ,” Daily Mail, 1 July).
