Suppose, for the sake of argument, that the conjuction of the seven
planets of the ancients in Feb 1962 heralded the birth of this
generation's Messiah?  The Messiah would be 36 years old right now,
and who would take notice of her/him/it?

Suppose again, for the sake of argument, that the Christian claim that
Jesus the Nazarene was the Messiah for that generation were true?  If
true, no one took him seriously *at the time* and Christianity as a
religion didn't really get off the ground for *at least* 100 years *after*
his death.

So, Bart, maybe come and gone, but also maybe come and still here -
being ignored.
