CREATIONISM, TEXAS: A famous scientist working on the Shroud of Turin, who initially believed it was fake has now stated:
"I absolutely believe that this is the original piece of cloth that was used to wrap the body of Jesus. As a result I have renounced Atheism and become Born-Again"
He told this reporter that he had solid proof not only that Jesus actually existed but that he also rose from the dead. This proof would soon be revealed to the world and "even skeptic scientists and atheists would have no choice but to acknowledge the real truth".
Working in his lab near the town of Creationism, Texas he said he had managed to lift some dried blood from a postage-size piece of the Shroud. Using 3-d computer graphics and DNA testing he was able to arrive at a composite sketch of Jesus' features which showed him to be a man of Middle Eastern descent. Further proof came in the DNA tests which showed Jesus' blood matched that of many modern-day Palestinians.
However, there was one incredible piece of information that earlier tests had missed. Jesus was not only a dark-skinned man - he was really an albino.
"And that is why Renaissance artists have mistakenly depicted him as a blue-eyed blond man when in reality he was a pink-eyed, white haired individual".
The scientist's ten-year work will air on the Jesus Channel in the US under the title "The Jesus Project".
