As well as referring to the need, or lack thereof, re debating belief and proof, I was also referring to the issue of trying to prove something either way, when in reality proof may not be possible. Is this Paul's trickster at work? [as per the opening post in this thread]. It's as if the trickster draws one in and then, having got one caught up in an issue, won't let the completed jigsaw puzzle be seen; also, for every question answered, at least another question will appear.
I'm not sure exactly what the topic of this thread is? I had interpreted the topic to be the trickster and synchronicity [using the shroud of Turin as an example], but I note that most of the discussion is on the shroud of Turin, itself.
I don't want to rattle on off topic and will wait for Paul to comment before I proceed further.
