The blind-test method was abandoned because the distinctive three-to-one herringbone twill weave of the shroud could not be matched in the controls, and a laboratory could thus identify the shroud sample.

[...] The pressure on the ecclesiastic authorities to accept the Turin protocol have almost approached illegality.While there is no proof that the rates were different in the past than they are today, there is also no proof that they were the same.Thus radioactive dating relies purely on assumptions.
