But, who else was crucified around A.D. 33, while bleeding from the back and neck, and wearing a crown of thorns, and on top of that, did something like get resurrected, that would leave a scortch mark in the shape of his image on the shroud? Therefore, if it dates to around A.D. 33, it must be Jesus'.

At least that's what the guys on some badly spelled Christian websites tell me.
