Aug. 29 feast of Beheading is also in western Christianity[edit]

Under the "eastern Christianity" heading, I see a list of other John-the-Baptist feasts, including this:

>August 29 - The Beheading of St. John the Forerunner

There is a Catholic feast (at least in the 1962 Roman missal) of the Beheading on that day. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 128.63.16.20 (talk) 20:49, 24 June 2013 (UTC)

John the Baptist was actually born on Thursday November 12, 7 BC / 12.11.747 AUC / 20 Heshvan 3755 HC[edit]

I added... John the Baptist was actually born on Thursday November 12, 7 BC / 12.11.747 AUC / 20 Heshvan 3755 HC.[1] This was marked by planetary alignment and aligned to Matthew 11:12. John was born six months before Jesus' actual birthday of Saturday April 17, 6 BC / 17.4.748 AUC / 29 Nisan 3755 HC.<ref]Astronomer http://MichaelMolnar.com </ref] 69.180.104.60 (talk) 11:37, 12 November 2015 (UTC)

Removed[edit]

The claim is dubious, the cited source doesn't look reliable, and the user has been banned for sockpuppetry. I feel reasonably certain that the claim wouldn't stand up to inquiry. Feel free to add it back in if I'm wrong. Sonata Green (talk) 23:20, 7 December 2015 (UTC)
