The Shroud of Turin: sacred Christian relic or clever fake? If it was created, it must have been by someone with extraordinary skills. The evidence points to one man, one of the greatest geniuses who has ever lived. Was Leonardo da Vinci the man behind the Shroud of Turin?

Worshiped by millions as the authentic burial cloth of Jesus, the Shroud of Turin is one of the most sacred and controversial relics of the Christian world. The image of Christ, believers say, was burned into the cloth fibers by the intense heat of resurrection. Behind the Cathedral that holds the Shroud, the Library of Palazzo Reale contains the self-portrait of Leonardo da Vinci.

What is the link between these two remarkable images?

This extraordinary film will weave together different threads of this puzzle. It explains the enormous significance of the Shroud, and the controversy over its authenticity that has raged in recent years following attempts at scientific study. And it asks the question: if it is a fake, who on earth would have had the ability to create it? – for the image on the Shroud is no ordinary painting.

Experts on the Shroud, on renaissance art, image analysis, forensic science, and crucifixion argue how this strange and mysterious image might have been created – or how it could not have been. Was it created photographically, in a camera obscura, was the image burnt on by pressing the cloth against a heated sculpture? Was it indeed painted, using a very sophisticated technique? Every method suggested points to the fact that the artist would have needed unique talents, and the film demonstrates that these talents were exhibited by one individual: Leonardo da Vinci – inventor, visionary, scientist, anatomist, artist and heretic.

Leonardo had not only the means to create the Shroud, he also had the motive. His was a life of facing challenges, of discovering the unknown, of pushing the boundaries… and of devising riddles and practical jokes. He also despised the excesses of the Catholic church – though he moved among the upper reaches of its hierarchy. Indeed, he was close to the Pope himself, through whom he was familiar with the Savoy royal family. And it was the Savoys who, significantly, owned the Shroud at the time a Papal blessing gave it its aura of authenticity.

Leonardo: The Man behind the Shroud, captures the wonder that the shroud holds, and the mastery of Leonardo.

This doc­u­men­tary proves that the U.S. gov­ern­ment-​in­clud­ing the FBI and DOJ-​are to­tal­ly cor­rupt and in­volved in se­ri­ous felony crime and the out­ra­geous cov­er-​up of truth con­cern­ing the mys­te­ri­ous crash of TWA Flight 800 on Ju­ly 17, 1996. As you will see, Flight 800 was ac­tu­al­ly de­stroyed by a sur­face-​to-​air mis­sile. Ev­ery al­le­ga­tion made in this film is backed up with facts-​none more dra­mat­ic than those that come from the Fed­er­al gov­ern­ment it­self. You’ll learn what the 736 of­fi­cial eye­wit­ness­es ac­tu­al­ly saw; why avi­a­tors re­ject the CIA “car­toon” ex­pla­na­tion; how the Feds crim­i­nal­ly sup­pressed re­port­ing; the crit­i­cal wit­ness draw­ings; the rigged NTSB hear­ings; the damn­ing radar da­ta and doc­u­men­ta­tion; the al­tered phys­i­cal ev­i­dence; un­de­ni­able proof of ex­plo­sive residue prov­ing a mis­sile strike; the sting­ing re­port from the ma­chin­ist union; and much more!

    Who fired the missiles? There was talk of US military exercises involving submarine missile launching being conducted in that area. Was this a military accident that the government felt compelled to cover-up?

    Most of us in the industry don’t buy that crap they put out. I and probably you never bought the idea of Center tank explosion especially at 14,000 ft, cockpit procedure, and with the tank being vented to the outside there was probably to rich a mixture of fuel vapors and a lack of oxygen that even if a short did occurred in the center tank probably nothing would have happened and since the center tanks were empty I am sure that the crew would have had the fuel boost pumps for the center tanks turned off just as cockpit procedure requires and since the fuel boost pumps would have been turned off I do not recall any other source of voltage and current sufficient to cause a spark. I suppose that the fuel quantity indicator system could have gotten a stray voltage on it but the likely hood of that happening would probably have been written up long before it became a problem do to inaccurate fuel quantity indication and subsequent investigation of the fuel quantity system which is a “Capacitive System”. What they say just does not fly if you consider the physics of what transpired. The story contains a lot of smoke and mirrors and no substance to their scenario. Even with all the paperwork and the tons of data it still ends up being a not so very good magic show on the government’s part, but the better question is how do you suppress all the people that were on those ships that were part of the exercise, surely someone would be willing to come forth to supply some answers, after all it is not a National Security issue, we all know that the system exists, it just had some bugs that failed to get worked out before a National tragedy was the result. Why can’t the government face up to its mistakes? Does a hundred years have to pass before the truth is exposed? This is not surprising. I was told that the senario goes something like this. The Navy was testing a new missile defense system off the Hawaiian Islands prior to the tragedy of TWA 800. It appears that the system was in good working order but was not tested in a high density real world situation. Several components were needed to complete the system, A launch vehicle to act as a missile threat by launching a missile with a dummy warhead, a countermeasure vehicle to intercept the threat missile, a look over the horizon radar system, supplied by an airborne tracking system and to act as an interface system between the ocean vessels or land launch vehicles, a computer capable of identifying, tracking, discriminating between friend and foe of multiple targets and providing, speed, trajectory, altitude, and flight path, and projected target, multiple being the key word. These things were needed to check the operational requirements of the system, Hawaii did not prove to have sufficient dense in airborne traffic to supply the military components the necessary environment to test the system in a real threat situation. Three things were needed to check the operational requirements of the system. Hawaii did not provide sufficient density in airborne traffic to test the system. Those three things were, A restricted military Zone, A high density of airborne traffic, and the “Defense System”. The area off the Coast of New York provided the right components, A restricted “No Traffic Area” for Military Use Only and lots and lots of Airborne targets each with a transponder emitting an “ID”. Simple, but something went terribly wrong. The flight recorder recorded a significant piece of information that has been suppressed. A pressure wave was recorded that exceeded the physical ability of the aircraft to make such a rate of change in altitude even in an explosion. Kerosene burns at something in the area of 700 ft per second, while the recorder recorded a pressure change exceeding 2000 ft per second. One of the TWA engineers on the investigation site reported that a hole forward of the Wing and aft of the cargo door, at or below the floor line was clearly visible, with a subsequent exit hole on the left side of the aircraft and above the overhead storage bends. That line of flight when projected backwards puts the launch site clearly in the middle of the “Naval Operations Restricted Area”. I would like for someone to research the records for what US Naval Submarines that were in port in Nova Scotia a few days prior to the downing of Flight 800, among that crew is a child of one of TWA Mechanics. He has some answers that a lot of people would like answered. It is ironic that an offspring of a TWA mechanic would be involved in and part of the cover-up by the US Navy’s critical mistake of the Downing of Flight 800.
