Kim Johnson of New Mexican for Science and Reason on Ray Rogers
Kim Johnson of New Mexican for Science and Reason (NMSR) wrote the following in an obituary on Raymond N. Rogers, a chemist and Fellow of the Los Alamos National Laboratory (LANL) in New Mexico.
He was a Fellow at Los Alamos National Laboratory, and tried to be an excellent, open minded scientist in all things. In particular, he had no pony in the "Shroud of Turin" horserace, but was terribly interested in making sure that neither proponents nor skeptics let their scientific judgment be clouded by their preconceptions. He just wanted to date and analyze the thing. He died on March 8th from cancer. He was a good man, and tried his best to do honest science.
Rogers was a member of the organization who had accepted the carbon dating conclusion in 1988. By 2002 he was changing his mind and by 2005 he had published finding that decisively showed that the carbon dating was flawed and invalid.
