Simulated crucifixion as Shroud of Turin research

WAIT, WHAT? Researchers hung men on a cross and added blood in bid to prove Turin Shroud is real (David Adam, Science Magazine).
In an attempt to prove that the Turin Shroud—a strip of linen that some people believe was used to wrap Jesus’s body after his crucifixion and carries the image of his face—is real, researchers have strapped human volunteers to a cross and drenched them in blood. Most mainstream scientists agree the shroud is a fake created in the 14th century.

That's right. And I doubt that this study is going to change that.
