Dr. Harry Gove, who invented the new method of AMS that required only a
small specimen, would be the first to admit that the 1989 C-14 testing of
the Holy Shroud of Turin must be redone since not all variables were
accounted for. BTW, besides myself, there are several members with
scientific backgrounds who are Shroud authorities on this list.
