Existential question

Sometimes in life, there is a question that needs to be answered, something that you simply can’t go any further without knowing.  Such is the nature of the question I’m about to post.

How old is this guy, really?

In every Star Trek canon I’ve heard of, Kirk’s birthdate is listed as 2233. The plaque in Riverside Iowa, however, which proudly proclaims itself to be the “future birthplace of James T. Kirk”, gives his birthdate as 2228, which is… wrong.

Nobody on the Internet is talking about this discrepancy.

Do the poor Riverside residents realize this fact? Which one is correct? What does it all mean? What is life?

Somebody please clear this up for me.
