    Jesus I Was Born In The Wrong Year According To The Pope

    Pope questions Christ’s birth year in new book

    Published: 22 November, 2012, 20:13

    A new book written by the Pope questions one of the fundamentals of the Christian religion. The head of the Roman Catholic Church argues the Christian calendar is based on a miscalculation and is therefore wrong.

    In the book Benedict XVI goes on to suggest Christ was born several years earlier than is commonly thought.

    In the final instalment of the Pope’s “Jesus of Nazareth” trilogy dedicated to Christ’s infancy, the pontiff writes of an error made by 6th century monk Dionysius Exiguus or Dennis the Small, who apparently “made a mistake… by several years” calculating the beginning of our calendar.

    "The actual date of Jesus’ birth was several years before," he claims.

    The concept is not new. Many historians and scholars agree with Pope Benedict XVI, believing Jesus Christ was rather born sometime between 6BC and 4BC.

    Dionysius Exiguus invented the new Christian calendar as an alternative to the one that was current at the time. It was based on the years of reign of Emperor Diocletian, a tyrant who persecuted Christians. The Exiguus system eventually replaced the Diocletian in Europe around the year 800 and started the use of Anno Domini.

    The allegation Dionysius Exiguus made a mistake is still a questionable theory, as no one knows how exactly Dionysius made his calculations.

    The book hit the stores on Wednesday after it has been translated into other languages from original German. The first part was published in 2007 and was annotated as a "personal search for the face of the Lord." The second instalment was published in 2011.

    Now I do not believe in God and all that. But it's a bit risky at this time of the year

    He is meant to be spreading love, hope, faith, trust and God

    And yet he slams every belief in the faith, with a single phrase

    What an idiot

    Well even if it is true the calendar cannot be changed it will involve too much messing about. Next year is 2013.

    Jesus wasn't born BEFORE it's commonly thought he was. He was born AFTER. His entire birth occurred during Census of Quirinius, which took place between 6 and 7 AD. Silly Pope thinks he's anything more than an idiotic, corrupt old $#@! because he's questioning an already-ridiculous belief system even though he sounds just as dumb.
    Thanks to Kwesnoth for the sig!

    Wouldn't involve any more mucking about than when we switched from the Julian calendar to the Gregorian one we use today. And i don't think he is quite advocating changing the calendar. Its more of an academic exercise of the Church.

    All these doubts are pissing me off. Especially when they have something to do with religion.

    I read the title as "Jesus, I was born in the wrong year."
