The Shroud of Turin is a linen wrapping cloth that appears to possess the image of Jesus Christ.The carbon-14 to carbon-12 ratio was found to be 92% of that in living organisms.On the above graph, which depicts the decay curve for carbon-14, you can draw a line from 1988 up to the curve and then from this intersection over to the percent value on the Y axis. This means that the Shroud of Turin may be younger than was previously thought.
