“No, he is most likely refering to the date given as Christ's birth by the church. This date corresponds to a Roman sun god.”

'Jesus Discovery': Jerusalem Archaeology Reveals Birth Of Christianity

“Depends on what you consider a source to be. Cornelius Tacitus, a Roman historian, wrote about the execution of Jesus about 70 years after the fact. However, it is believed that Tacitus garnered this knowledge from official documents and statements that were available at that time, but which are no longer available. Tacitus is at least fairly reliable, as many of his other claims have been found to be truthful. Flavius Jospehus, about 40 years after the approximate date of Christ's execution also wrote about the faith and its purpose.

As a Roman historian, I can tell you that primary sources are very limited. In fact, there are only a handful of contemproary Roman writers.”

“Are you a climber? Have you any insight into the inner machinations of climbing? Anyway, I bet you read "Into Thin Air," whereupon you are know an expert. To me, nothing is as exciting as mountaineering. Climbers do not always put others lives at risk.”

“Yes, true. But many Americans are overweight, yet they continue to eat fast food and junk. Obesity is a bigger threat. Many climbing critics are inactive lazy scoundrels.”
