Problem of provenance

Just saying it is possible is not the same thing. What happened to the shroud after it left the tomb? Where did it go? Whose hands did it pass through? How did it end up where it finally did? I believe your decision is somewhat premature.

This is a problem that any explanation will need to provide. If it’s a fake, then need to explain how the shroud originated from a forger, who he was, how he did it, what was the chain of ownership to Charny. If it’s legit, how did the image form when Jesus resurrected and how did it journey from Jerusalem to Turin.
