Science did NOT confirm anything but the fact someone living in that timeframe was buried there.
There is nothing to test against to say beyond a shadow of a doubt that it is the body of Paul.
With this same reasoning they are using, I can say beyond a shadow of a doubt that Jesus never existed... it can't be proven he did and I don't need evidence to back up my claims.

this is so bogus
there is simply no way to confirm the identity
they are using what? paintings, etchings, or some old text?
it's just all hearsay, why? to give the church a little boost of limelight and maybe gain a few converts and refresh the faith of existing initiates
bones where often moved around in the past, especially dignitaries and monarchs (for security, conspiracy and whatever)
wow another shroud of Turin everyone can debate for like 20 years
this belongs in the HOAX forum
because that's what it is, another religious HOAX meant to propagate their dominance over whoever falls for it
