 9For we are glad, when we are weak, and ye are strong: and this also we wish, even your perfection. 

 "won't stand up in court, but archeology is different. Yes, the bones are carbon-dated to the right era, and that hardly means they are St. Paul's. But the fact that they are where tradition says they should be and from a very early time those bones were venerated as those of Paul, is strong circumstantial evidence. Face it, at this point, if you opened a tomb of a Caesar or a Chinese emperor one could never prove the remains belongs to that person. Are we sure King Tut was buried in King Tut's tomb? DNA tests might prove that the remains found belonged to a male of the Jewish priestly caste (such a genetic marker has been found), which might make the evidence stronger. The Church is very careful about authenticating relics. The Shroud of Turin has never been declared genuine and countless "miracles" are dismissed every year. 

I am not much of a believer, but I have always felt it takes as much faith to say there is no god as it does to say there is. Great crimes have been committed in the name of faith, but also great works of charity and love."
