Adam, Ben and Cyril were born in the years 1309, 1310 and 1311 respectively on the same road in old Jerusalem. They lived their whole life there, and all lived to be over 60. They also had a full active life. However, they never crossed paths with each other. Why should that be so?


Solution:

Adam was a Muslim, Ben was a Christian and Cyril was a Jew. Adam was born in 1309 of the Muslim calendar, Ben 1310 in the Christian calendar and Cyril 1311 in the Jewish calendar. Cyril was born over 3000 years before Ben, who in turn was born 619 years before Adam
