I'm surprise this topic isn't a full blown religious war yet. Heh. After reading it through, Marby's first comment pretty much hits the nail dead on.

1. It could be anyone from that era. 2. Christians don't believe in carbon-dating. Yes, they only accept carbon dating when it supports them? Hypocrisy is one of the main things that drive people from religion, and yet they propagate it daily.

You treat the World's two-billion-plus living Christians as if they are one single individual. How do you manage to do that? P. S. It was my own personal hypocrisy which drew me towards religion.
