Here is an observation. The humerous aspect of synchronicity is often produced from the occurrence of the unexpected and unexplained. Some of the early Greeks thought that it was produced by Hermes, the playful "trickster" god of mythology.
Now consider this. There has been a lot of discussion recently about the lack of historic evidence of Jesus outside the four gospels. The origin of the gospels themselves has been called into question, as well as the reports from Josephus. (The Jesus Mysteries book featured on this site documented a lot of this) And then we have the shroud. A simple cloth with the imprints of a crucified man that matches all the biblical descriptions. And nobody can explain how it got there. In an age that nearly worships science, it stands as a lasting joke from the trickster, as if to say: "Explain this with all you fancy science." If you look at it from that perspective, it is intensly funny. Any other comments/ observations?
