On public display for the first time in 20 years, the Shroud Of Turin—believed by millions to be Christ's burial shroud, despite being carbon-dated to the Middle Ages—is once again a hot topic of debate. What do you think?

  • “Christ's burial cloth? Give me a break. It looks like some stinky hippie used the good towels.”

    Ricky Allen –
    Civil Engineer

  • “Whether or not the face on the Shroud is truly that of our Lord, no man—except, of course, a trained scientist using radiocarbon dating—can say.”

    Linda Flynn –
    Chiropractor

  • “The 'Members Only' insignia on the left breast should be proof enough that the Shroud is fake.”

    Lawrence Kingman –
    Systems Analyst

  • “I'm not traveling all the way to Italy to see the Shroud Of Turin when we've got the world's largest ball of twine right here.”

    Stacie Mazzilli –
    Hairstylist

  • “That's nothing, man. I have Jesus' actual autograph. He signed my Bible at GodCon '97.”

    Josh Taveras –
    Security Guard

  • “You know those scientists who debunked the Shroud? They're all going to hell.”
