Since "bone density and fusion of the bones throughout the body" can vary greatly depending on the individual, such a system could never distinguish between ages with the necessary precision, no matter how advanced the technology might be.

On shares site it reads
The way prepared by His Herald the ‘star’, Maitreya, the World Teacher, has given His first interview on American television. Millions have heard Him speak both on TV and the internet.
No one here on ATS has heard or seen this.....or are we not looking in the right place...
I have emailed Share to be a little more specific....

Since the age of awakening is not about an individual master or leader, but it is about individuals like you and me. No more leaders and followers in this age, but each getting enlightened individually by our own interest.
My gut feeling also tells me not to believe in any external masters or saviors, since the Christ is rising in all of us, if we shall choose so - which is what may be the real meaning of the second coming of Christ.
You are right about the 'age of awareness', it's going to be about each of us finding the "Master within". 'Christ within you' is another way of saying 'may you have the awareness of Christ or the Christ Consciousness within you'.
As for Maitreya being a deception or a negative force, well I would suggest that you make your own mind up on this. Judge His words for yourself. The negativity about Maitreya is likely going come out very strong now, but did you honestly expect the right wing fundamentalist and the devoted idealists to think differently? It's been said that the fundamentalists and the bankers will be last ones to accept Maitreya's new world vision. They have the most to lose.
Maitreya and all new age thought is a threat to the status quo. But time marches on... Keep an open mind and know that the real truth lies within. I think that is all one can really ask of anyone.

You say to keep an open mind, but it sounds as if you have bought it hook, line and sinker

Wow the life of this thread is proof just how much people want a messiah. If you want the messiah in your midst, one only needs to practice the teaching of Jesus, and seek him daily. when more and more do than the messah will be born in your heart and your works. But people have lost this simple concept. However as to those that think Maitraya is the Christ because of what he preachs, I give you words of the Master. Matthew 15-23
15"Watch out for false prophets. They come to you in sheep's clothing, but inwardly they are ferocious wolves. 16By their fruit you will recognize them. Do people pick grapes from thornbushes, or figs from thistles?
17Likewise every good tree bears good fruit, but a bad tree bears bad fruit. 18A good tree cannot bear bad fruit, and a bad tree cannot bear good fruit. 19Every tree that does not bear good fruit is cut down and thrown into the fire. 20Thus, by their fruit you will recognize them.
21"Not everyone who says to me, 'Lord, Lord,' will enter the kingdom of heaven, but only he who does the will of my Father who is in heaven. 22Many will say to me on that day, 'Lord, Lord, did we not prophesy in your name, and in your name drive out demons and perform many miracles?' 23Then I will tell them plainly, 'I never knew you. Away from me, you evildoers!'

So, this guy is wrapped up with Sai Baba? Then why is there any confusion? He will be another megalomaniac that misleads those who are already lost. I am no longer lost and it has been given to me to be as a shepherd. I love my Creators who have found me and have no lack except that which is common to my flesh and will pass away with this world. The "Maitreya" is mind and soul-numbingly without hope of the eternal.

For many, the very presence of the Christ will constitute a problem – their long-held beliefs will be shaken to their core. For them, a period of heart searching will be inevitable as they seek to understand the meaning of the new dispensation; ancient beliefs die hard and hurt bitterly in the process. Nevertheless, millions will respond with a glad heart, happy to
accept the Teacher in their midst. Few, in time, will stand against the common acknowledgment that the Christ, in the person of Maitreya, walks once more upon the Earth.
“For many, the very presence of the Christ will constitute a problem.” There are many people who hate this whole idea, who do not want change. “Their long-held beliefs will be shaken to the core,” when the Christ appears on television and forms a telepathic link with humanity and says: “I am the World Teacher, I am the one you are awaiting.” Perhaps He will say something like this, I do not know. In some way He will make it known that He is the One expected by everyone, even though they do not know they are expecting Him.
Some will have a very difficult time. “For them, a period of heart searching will be inevitable as they seek to understand the meaning of the new dispensation; ancient beliefs die hard and hurt bitterly in the process.” If you are a fundamentalist Christian, Hindu, Buddhist, Muslim or whatever (and for those people, to be fair, their religion is serious; they hold these beliefs in a very serious, if fanatical, way), this is going to be very disturbing. Many of them believe, now, that Maitreya is the antichrist. They are really going to be shaken when they see what they think is the antichrist speaking to them with a beautiful, wonderful vision of the future. And they will not know whether to believe it or not.
They will have the same experience, they will feel His energy, they will know that this man is embodying the energy and it does not feel bad. It feels good, actually, it is like when they go to church, only better, more so. They are going to have a problem.
Then they will see all the changes in the world. Eventually, so many people will be involved in the changes, so respectable will this whole experience become, that they will find it more and more difficult to stand against it. It will be a sad time for fundamentalists because they will see the end of their beliefs. They will have to replace them with all these New Age ideas. They will have to accept that those ‘New Age’ types were telling the truth, talking sense, that it was not some attack, a conspiracy, which was going to be imposed on humanity by the antichrist.
“Ancient beliefs die hard” – and they have had them for hundreds of years – “and hurt bitterly in the process. Nevertheless, millions will respond with a glad heart, happy to accept the Teacher in their midst. Few, in time, will stand against the common acknowledgment that the Christ, in the person of Maitreya, walks once more upon the Earth.”

Hey Neo, I didn't mean to offend you. Sorry if I have hurt your feelings in any way.
Did you notice that I did write 'When I 'feel' or know from within of any such Teacher, I shall listen to it.'
Let's not fight & in the process empower the enemies of our planet. Let's rather agree to disagree on minor differences & work together to heal our planet
