The tiny fragments of bone, according to tests are part of someone who lived in the 1st or 2nd century so that's proof they are Paul's remains since Paul was someone around about that same time.

Can't argue with that logic.

Many people died during the 1st and 2nd century. I have seen no evidence that bones of that time are, or are not, the bones of a specific person.

I am really interested in this. Can someone name the paper in which this was published?

It was published, right?

You would think with that unbelievable rich amount of material and various materials a damn fine tooting date would have been established.

Fabrics, dyse, bones, proteins all quoted by vatican various, we chemists and physicists (I am both) would have had a field day fixing a date on a few milligrams of each sample!

Where is that journal?

Journal please.
