Were Solid and Liquid really born in 1972?

Someone brought this up on Tumblr (http://metalgirlysolid.tumblr.com/post/103106316598) that Solid and Liquid were possibly born later than '72, mainly based on how Snake at age 33 (MGS1) looks younger than Big Boss at 29 (MGS3). I think their point is flawed where they mention Solidus possibly being the first one, because I'm pretty sure it's stated somewhere that he was the final of the three clones. But is there anything that puts the year exactly at 1972?

The date of birth for the "sons of Big Boss" was nailed down to 1972 in the ending timeline of MGS3.

Ah, that's right. But I guess it still is interesting how Solid looks younger at 33 than Big B did at 29, but it's probably just an oversight. Or the beard.

it is the beard and the low graphic. Fox mentioned that he haven't aged well

How can you make out that a pixelfaced PS1 character looks younger than BB who has actually a pair of eyes and a moving mouth (and a sexy beard ! ).

I love MGS1 but I have a hard time putting an age to a minecraft face, pretty hard to add wrinkles.
