PUBLIC LECTURE: The Shroud of Turin: What science can tell us
A public lecture by by Joel Bernstein, Professor of Chemistry, NYU Abu Dhabi and Ben Gurion University of the Negev and 2011 UWA Institute of Advanced Studies Professor-at-Large.
This talk will examine the developments leading to chemical microscopist Walter McCrone’s investigations, the scientific basis and experimental aspects of McCrone’s study, the conclusions drawn from that study, and the absence or presence of confirming evidence for those conclusions.This has led to perhaps the quintessential conflict between acceptance of the validity and veracity of the scientific method on the one hand, and religious belief and faith on the other hand, and some of these issues will also be discussed in the talk.
