How our years are calculated

From page A8 | December 29, 2012 |

This time of year always reminds me that our method of determining annual time is way off.

Our years are erroneously calculated upon the alleged birth of a person who called himself the son of God and savior of all mankind. There is absolutely no scientific proof that such a person ever existed. If he did even exist, the time is way off. Biblical scholars have determined that even if we go by biblical statistics, the person involved in this charade would have been born somewhere around March or April, more than likely closer to the implied date around another false holiday, Easter.

In the legal world there is no such thing as “implied consent,” which means that if you do not challenge something, it is implied to be true. I challenge anyone to come up with any scientific proof of actual existence of Jesus of Nazareth, actually being born in the city of Bethlehem.

    Are you really this bored?, who cares?, you really need to get a life. Try doing some community service work, go for a walk, what ever. The world has enough real issues to deal with, stop trying to start problems where there isn't one and go out and help fix the real / current issues. On second thoght, keep this up, really. This is better than Letterman's top 10, Thanks

    This one's right up there with building skyscrapers in downtown Fairfield to house seniors. On New Year's Day the DR should publish "Harry's Greatest Hits." That would be amusing.

    Some people are spiritually hopeless. Even with all our science and math we prove that Jesus of Nazareth existed some would still be hostile to his gospel.

    I noticed that no one provided any proof in the comments. Shoot the messenger is the M.O., when no proof is available.

    Why just Christ?---give me scientific proof Caesar existed in Rome. It's the same thing---written and recorded records passed down, sculptures, busts, etc. But that's not "scientific" proof. I'm not going to suggest the Shroud of Turin is scientific proof because its carbon dating doesnt go back 2013 years. I do believe and think there's strong enough evidence to suggest Jesus existed and he made State and Local Government very angry. LOL!!!

    I don't think anyone doesn't believe Jesus existed, but many are skeptical that he was the son of god.

    Mr. Short, Which field of scientific proof would you believe? Since Jesus lived about 2,000 years ago, we do not have the benefit of photographic evidence. We should not believe in him on the basis of paintings, since they were made centuries after his life, and were products of the painters' imaginations instead of reality. Would you believe archaeology, including written records of Roman and Jewish contemporaries and historians? How about geneology, and the fact that Jesus is from the lineage of kings of Israel, including David?
