Talk:The Gregorian calendar proves that Jesus existed
From Iron Chariots Wiki
For those inclined to fix this page up, it needs the following work:
- Determine if the title is appropriate, or if it needs to be moved somewhere else. Should "Gregorian" be in the title or something else?
- Include a better summary at the top of what the argument is trying to say.
- Just what sub-category of Category:Arguments for the existence of God does this belong in anyway? I looked through the list, and "majority arguments" seemed like the best match, but I'm not sure. I thought this should be placed in the same category as America is a Christian nation, but that remains without a sub-category as well.

- I agree that the title is awkward, but I don't have any good names. Perhaps removing "Gregorian" would be sufficient, since some variants of the Julian calendar also have year 1 as the year Jesus was born.
- Perhaps this should go in a new "self-fulfilling prophecy" category: "some people believed Jesus existed, so they based their calendar on this fact, therefore Jesus existed" seems reminiscent of "the Bible says Israel would be a nation again, so a lot of people worked to make this happen, therefore the prophecy is correct".
