He’s 45. There is no year 0.

Wouldn’t you have to add the number of years Christ lived? 23 before Christ + years Christ lived + 23 years after death + 1 day = answer?

80 years and a day or 79 years and a day.

Christ lifetime was estimated to about 33 to 34 years old.

• KG, you are the winner!
45 years old. There is no year 0 so you can add 23 to 23 but you must subtract one to take year 0 out of consideration: 23 + 23 – 1 = 45 years old. In some cultures people are born 1 years old, in this case they would be 46 years old when they die.

Dude…. Dude? Lol, its all good :p

KDJ – AD means “Anno Domini”. The year AD 1 immediately follows the year 1 BC. This wasnt actually used until some 500+ years later.

• KDJstyle

Oh, okay. Thanks, didn’t know that. Thought AD mean “after death” since BC means “before Christ”

Weren’t you actually the winner? Crabman?

• Crabman

KDJ, it’s not about winning or losing, it’s about who enjoys the riddles. Until Dude starts offering cash awards anyway ;)
