So, trying to finagle a better, more impressive story about how the shroud was created does not mean that it was created that way. We can’t always figure out exactly how some artifact was made, but that is no reason to resort to supernatural explanations.

I agree.

To be fair to the ENEA folks aren’t saying so. Many in Catholic and even secular media think ENEA scientists are saying so and reporting it that way. The problem may stem from the fact that the report was written in Italian and nobody from the media in the UK or the US read it.

But I don’t agree with what followed that quote. So read Skeptic » Doubtful News » New whiz-bang test regarding the Shroud of Turin aims to prompt debate on authenticity. Sorry, case closed.
