Editorial. Rex Morgan's Shroud News: My scanning and word-processing of issues of Rex Morgan's Shroud News and emailing them to Barrie Schwortz for him to convert to PDF and add to his online Shroud News archive, continued in April up to issue #47, June 1988. [Right (enlarge)]. It is up to issue #36, August 1986, in that archive. 1988 was the year of the radiocarbon dating of the Shroud so in there is a lot on that topic coming soon!
Topic index: I continued adding my old posts to my Topic Index in April up to and including my post of 28 March 2012, but the rate has slowed to a crawl due to other priorities. In April, I blogged 7 posts: Editorial and Contents: Shroud of Turin News - March 2016 - 1st; Problems of the Forgery Theory: Index G-M - 2nd; "The Shroud of Turin": Shroud of Turin News - March 2016 - 3rd; "Modern-day 'Indiana Jones' links Shroud to 1st century": Shroud of Turin News - March 2016 - 4th; Non-traditional #13: The man on the Shroud: The evidence is overwhelming that the Turin Shroud is authentic - 13th; My review of "The Keramion, Lost and Found: A Journey to the Face of God" (2016) by Philip E. Dayvault - 25th.
Updates to my posts in the background in April included: "Problems of the Forgery Theory: Index A-F," "G-M" and "N-Z"; and "Is The Shroud Of Turin Genuine?": Shroud of Turin News, January 2016" (the latter is too time-consuming so I have ceased adding to it).
Pageviews: At midnight on 30th April, Google Analytics [below (enlarge)] gave this blog's "Pageviews all time history" as 524,526 and "Pageviews last month" as 9,216. It also gave the most viewed posts for the month as: ""Modern-day 'Indiana Jones' links Shroud to 1st century ...,"Apr 4 - 143; "The Shroud of Turin: 3.6. The man on the Shroud and Jesus were crucified," Dec 2, 2013 - 119; "Re: Shroud blood ... types as AB ... aged blood always types as AB, so the significance of this ... is unclear," Mar 18, 2011 - 108; "Phil Dayvault Presents Major New Evidence from Early Christianity ...," Mar 13 - 94 and "Non-traditional #13 ... ," - 91.
