People who aren't satisfied with all that God has given them as evidence enough. Will not be granted the evidence they demand because who are they to demand it in the first place.
Let me throw something out there. Lets say we are beings of light, and when we "ascend" to our higher selves, or attain a higher consciousness, we radiate light. Could the markings on the Shroud have been caused by Jesus either entering or leaving his human body and ascending to his "light body"?

It's just an incredible gap in logic right there, in the assumption that irradiating the cloth with laser light IS the only way to color it in some fashion. This is preposterous.
To give a much simpler example -- linens can be bleached by either UV light, or by a wide variety of chemical agents. Or even combination of chemicals and light. Same applies to other colors.
These Italians needed PR, and the way to achieve that was for them to oversell the Turin Shroud connection. To me it sounds like pr0stituting the religion.
