imageStephen E. Jones in his blog writes, De Wesselow fails to answer the reasons why rational people accept the Shroud is a fake:

Because while atheists/agnostics would normally welcome any new claims that Jesus was not resurrected, and therefore that Christianity is false, it is too high a price for them to pay to concede that the Shroud is authentic, because de Wesselow’s claim that Jesus’ resurrection was the Shroud is so "transparently absurd."

Stephen has provided another excellent posting. Take the time to read it.
