    The 'mistake' was made by a sixth century monk known as Dionysius Exiguus or in English Dennis the Small, the 85-year-old pontiff claims in the book 'Jesus of Nazareth: The Infancy Narratives', published on Wednesday.

    "The calculation of the beginning of our calendar based on the birth of Jesus was made by Dionysius Exiguus, who made a mistake in his calculations by several years," the Pope writes in the book, which went on sale around the world with an initial print run of a million copies.

    "The actual date of Jesus's birth was several years before."

    Which Popes were infallible, the Pope now or the Popes that agreed with the later birth date?

    My money's on John Paul, although even he was better when he was still with George and Ringo.

    I have read from many sources that Christ was actually born around 4 A.D. and so that's what I believe also. If that's true, then the Julian calendar is screwed up too, right?

    Why is everybody all spun up? It's not going to matter after December 21st.

    I don't think it matters that much *when* he was born. We already celebrate his birthday on a day that probably isn't close to when he was acutally born.

    Well there you have the difference between Roman justice and American justice. In America, Jesus would have had a lawyer who pointed out the error on the execution order related to an error on the birth certificate and ipso fatso the judge would have dismissed the case. Romans were like, "Meh, it's close enough for government work."
