Not that this will settle anything, but Italian researchers claim that the Shroud of Turin is a medieval fake:

TVOD: (Battle)Stargate Universe


 "A Stargate for the rest of us," the headline reads, and so far that seems to be the case. The Stargate movie was a good old-fashioned guilty pleasure, but the two series- SG-1 and Atlantis- strike me as nothing more than elaborate fan fiction or LARP.
