"England's Most Successful Team Ever (18&5)"
In that case "everyone" should be able to explain how da Vinci came to repose in rigor mortis for this medieval photoshoot. Everyone should be able to explain how and why he chose to bleed so profusely from the head, chest, wrists, feet, back, and legs without dying, even though those forensic pathologists who have actually studied the shroud will tell you some of the blood is premortem blood, and the rest postmortem blood. "Everyone" should be able to explain how da Vinci acquired the dirt particles embedded in his knee wounds and the soles of his feet, which reveal traces of a relatively rare form of calcite, travertine aragonite, so far found only near the Damascus Gate in Jerusalem, or what was once Golgotha. "Everyone" should be able to explain why he went to the trouble of collecting pollen from israel for his photoshoot -- pollen from the Zygophyllum dunosum plant for example, which grows only in the Sinai, and Cistus creticus, which grows only in Israel, along the Mediterranean coast areas and the higher elevations east of the coast, but only as far in that direction as the old city of Jerusalem, and Capparis aegyptia, which again grows only in Israel, Jordan, and the Sinai.
"Everyone" should be able to explain how Avinoam Danin, a botany professor at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem and a leading authority on the flora of Israel, along with Uri Baruch, a pollen specialist with the Israel Antiquities Authority, reported that the combination of pollen spores lodged in the Shroud‚s surface, as well as floral images mysteriously „imprintedš on the cloth, could only have come from plants growing in a restricted area around Jerusalem, and why da Vinci went to great lengths to acquire such pollen for his photograph.
