I'm stuck with Timing Belt Replacement Sign In

I was replacing my timing belt now...

My camshafts top dead center marks aren't aligned with my crank shaft top dead center marks. It's off by about a half inch. I can't turn the engine past a certain point now. When I took off the old belt it all matched up I may have accidentally turned them when I put on the new timing belt.

What do I do?

This is an interference engine so SO NOT FORCE it to turn. If you do you'll be buying an engine.
Remove the belt and move the cams slightly until the crank moves freely and then time the cams.
