Turin shroud shown to be a fake

When the C-14 results were announced, the media published the article titled, “Turin shroud shown to be a fake”, with the lead C-14 scientists in the photo.


But, even though it’s claimed to be a fake, the main questions about the shroud were left unanswered, “who did it and how did the image on the cloth get created?” Does it make any sense to just blindly say, “We know it’s a medieval fake, but as for how the image got there, we have no idea.”? It doesn’t make any more sense than “someone just got a bit of linen, faked it up and flogged it.”
