The meaning of BC is Before Christ. CE is a recent term. It refers to Common Era and is used in place of A. Many different calendars have been used since man began tracking time. Most start with some epoch event or person.

How can you in your one religion, among thousands both past and present, know for a fact that you are right? Another way of phrasing it is, what are the odds that you will be born into right religion I think they're all probably wrong out of all the religions in the wold both past and present. How do you know you should not worship Baal, Thor, Allah, Wotan, Egyptian gods, or any other god available? You do this off faith alone based off what you are told, in many cases during childhood.

It may cause you mental harm to hear someone say what you believe with all your heart is probably wrong, but it is the logical answer. There are simply too many religions and no evidence too support them except ancient stories. Though these stories are significant to understanding our culture, art, and history; they do not have to be true and in all likelihood were probably invented by people, not magically created by an all powerful, all knowing, creator of everything.

The wrath of God is coming, and unless you accept Christ, you will be damned to Hell for ever and ever and ever. Why are there so many versions of Christianity when they all profess to believe in the same Christ?

Religious wars continue today. How backward is it to still live in "The Dark Ages".

BC, it is of little scientific significance. If it had been originally established as BC before Confucius or BC before Cleopatra and dated accordingly, do you think people would be trying to make the change? Probably not. The only reason the change was promulgated is because people don't like the reference to Christ, just like they don't like the reference to Christ in Christmas and try to eradicate that as well. If one does not believe that Christ is, in fact, the Son of God, and does not desire to worship in that manner, that is their prerogative.

But, the fact that Christ's life occurred is a historical fact as is Confucius and Cleopatra and if that was chosen centuries ago as a time marker for reference, why does it need to be changed? What if i tell you i'm atheist. Are you the pope or something that you keep on yapping about this jesus thing.

I say a short trip for you huh! I do not care who is offended by the existence of Christ. He does and will exist and rule, no matter what you think or deduce. Christians are not in the business of making bridges to the lost. Though most here seemed to have missed the point entirely and turned a simple question about acronyms related to dating into a religious pontification session.

Thank God for the participants of this forum. Fairly entertaining, like an animal in a zoo, sadly dependent upon the degree of deprivation but still interesting to watch. This forum is funny, but at the same time disheartening that there are so many people obviously slowing the progression of human accomplishments. Things will change one day anyway.

Thanks everyone and keep em coming. Good stuff. As I have been reading posts, I have come to a conclusion. One would always hear the argument After Death? Only the knowledgeable one in the group could ever answer them. I remember answering this quite a few times and still no one would get it or remember. Why do we use a Latin phrase for only one portion of it anyway? Wouldn't that be a hoot? This would make the use of these acronyms quite easy to explain to someone and would also be an easy mnemonic by which to remember their meaning.

Because whether it literally means "Common Era" or not- the reference point is and will always be Christ. There are bigger battles to fight than this one. The new acronym can be easily used to the favor of a Christian and still would not be offensive to other religions. Although I don't believe in compromising my moral code, I still don't wish to offend anyone else's. I don't think this change offends my moral code as a Christian at all. God is bigger and better than to allow the world He created to wipe Him from its history.

It just simply cannot be done. No matter what acronym we use. He has His arms open wide for all to come and redeem themselves and receive salvation. Jesus loves me this I know for the bible tells me so. Read John ! Read and have faith that Jesus is Lord! Read Philippians Read Romans Do not be afraid or terrified because of them, for the LORD your God goes with you; he will never leave you nor forsake you" Deuteronomy You'd better get to know him while you have the chance.

Every knee shall bow and every tongue will confess that jesus is lord! Praise god! Amen anon Post 89 To the atheist i say: If you are right and Jesus is "just this thing," then when i die i have lost nothing by living his truth and being holy.

But what will happen to you if i am right? A historical event of world significance was used as the line drawn in the sand and its effectiveness has just as much relevance now as when it was first decided on and accepted to use.

It's like using the metric system - it's a system of measure that for all intents and purposes works for everyday measure. Agnostics simply fail to exercise something called faith, and atheists deny that faith. Yes, I know that's a simplified view but it is the basic principle behind these two belief systems and if belief systems defines religion as a set of beliefs concerning the cause, nature and purpose of the universeespecially when considered as the creation of a supernatural agency or agencies then by default these two belief systems are also religions.

They may not consider themselves as religions but then again, Christians do not consider their belief to be religion either, but a relationship with their Creator. So it would seem non-believers would like to create a double-standard as well as those in the wrappings of religion who believe Christ existed as only a great teacher instead of the only begotten Son of God. Christianity does not profess its believers to be perfect - just the opposite. It is acceptance of those of us who are less than perfect by a belief and faith in a Creator that has unquestionable love for His creation that He created perfectly in their imperfections.

Why would anyone argue the contrary to such a message? But yet, as it is written, there will be! Those who wish to remove all religious connotations should truly consider the results of removing all religion from our planet. What's left over? A society to do as it pleases and left up to its own devices, without rule, and if one were to reply that rule would still exist by laws, wouldn't that then become religion, and who would create these laws?

Human decency? Who would decide what human decency would be? And would it not simply be a plagiarism of scripture? Without those morals to measure a society against then lawlessness is acceptable. I can come to your house and take all that you have and it would be acceptable. We all could rape, pillage and burn with a clear conscience. Some "self-believers" would say that is exactly what religion causes but and there may be some truth to that.

The God I believe in didn't create religion - that was mankind's doing - and as with most things mankind creates, it is fallible. Someone argued that truth is unquestionable and if there is argument over Christianity or Muslims or any other belief considered religion then it must not be the truth. I agree with the statement they made that truth is unquestionable and that's where my agreement ends. Truth is from belief, and most non-Christian beliefs consider at the least that Christ was a great leader, a great teacher, a great rabbi, a messenger from God.

Some non Christians even believe in His miraculous, immaculate conception. Unless you simply discount the existence altogether that Jesus Christ existed at all, the spiritual and historical evidence points to the contrary. So if the majority accept Jesus in the very least as a great teacher or messenger of God, why would they also not accept His teachings? Do they view Jesus as a liar? Do they view Him as a lunatic or heretic?

think, that

A blasphemer? And if so, then how could He also be a great and wonderful leader or teacher or messenger of God? Either he is considered a great leader by His life and His teachings because they are the truth, because His message is that He is the Way and the Truth and the Light and that no one gets to the father except through Him, He was the final and perfect sacrifice. So from His own teachings, if you cannot believe that as the truth, then the alternative is to see the message as an abomination and blasphemy.

If you view it as either, you've acknowledged God's existence because who else would such a message be blasphemy or an abomination to?

So there seems to be a disconnect to believing Jesus was a great leader, teacher, rabbi, healer, messenger, if indeed one stops himself short of believing Him also to be our Savior. There is no correct answer because the power to change on earth rests with those who have financial means to make that change regardless of justification.

At one time the Christian Church had much power and financial stability. Time, ignorance and the necessity to forgive beyond common decency have placed it at an all time low.

The forces of anti-religion are now in charge of the world as they once were at the beginning of the Roman Empire. For them the world will end at their last breath. For those who believe, this is just a stop along the way. It is what religion is all about, faith that there is something more than this puny existence. Faith that living right leads to redemption. No change instituted by men can have everlasting consequences so don't sweat the small stuff, the Almighty isn't! It revolved around Him!

We think we don't need him in anything, but someday we will. I really think we shouldn't do it because we need to have our lives revolve around him.

If we take that out, that is just one more thing to make us forget our Savior. It is just America doing something dumb again because we think we can do it all on our own, but really we are selfish and stubborn and Americans just don't get it. BCE eliminates this error. You don't have the answer. When he will be back then everything will be clear who is right and who is wrong. His name is the Messiah, Jesus, son of Mary, of high esteem in this world and the Hereafter, one of those brought near.

She said: "My Lord, how can I have a son when no man has yet touched me? When He decides on something, He just says to it "Be! Qur'an, When God said: "Jesus, I will take you back and raise you up to Me, and purify you of those who are unbelievers. And I will place the people who follow you at that time above those who are unbelievers until the Day of Resurrection. Then you will all return to Me, and I will judge between you regarding the things about which you differed. Surah Al 'Imran, To clear up the meaning of last quotation: "Those who say that the Messiah, son of Mary, is the third of three are unbelievers.

There is no god but the One God. Surat al-Ma'ida, Those who argue about him are in doubt about it. They have no real knowledge of it, just conjecture. But they certainly did not kill him. God is Almighty, All-Wise. The non-religious as well as non-Christians obviously don't agree with this implication and would like to see the Gregorian calendar amended to reflect religious tolerance.

No one is seeking this change to kill Christianity, but to promote this tolerance. I use them because I like to keep up with scientific innovations and find this scheme common in science texts.

I'm just shocked that anyone could look into the sky, see the beauty in our animals and world before us humans began destroying it, and deny there is a God. I live in a largely Jewish area, so I will use "Happy Holidays" if I'm not sure of someone's religion. By the way, some Jewish people get annoyed if you say "Happy Hanukkah" if they don't celebrate Hanukkah.

Whatever people decide is fine, but I just think it's silly to change it when we're still using his birth date real or otherwise as a point of reference.

Besides, "God" is on our money, and I haven't seen anyone refuse to use money, or refuse to take their Christmas vacation, for that matter. I'm an agnostic but respect Christianity.

thanks for

Christ was a man of peace. Mohammed was a warrior who massacred his enemies. It won't make any difference to you if you just disappear from existence after you die.

So why then crack down so hard on Christians? We don't harm you, and we don't force you to follow Christ. The times of sorrow that are mentioned in Revelation are coming near and only those who follow the teachings of Jesus; those who truly believe in the existence, the sufferings, the resurrection of Jesus; and that he, Jesus, is the Way, the Truth, and the Life; and those who repent from their many sins and ask for his forgiveness will not be tortured forever in the Lake of Fire. I'm not implying that I or any other followers of Christ are perfect, but we Christians have been released from the penalty of sin and someday will be released from its presence.

God was less merciful in the Old Testament times, but since Jesus was the ultimate sacrifice, that gave each and every human being a chance for salvation. God went through so much suffering to give us a chance of eternal life not death. Don't waste your chance. God loves you. Our calendar, as well as historical dating were devised by christian historians. Probably because they were the only educated people at the time. Feel free, but remember you're still using the birth of Christ as a historical reference point.

You want to switch to the Chinese calendar? Good luck. It's a cyclical calendar - not continuous. That means the New Year changes every year and no one knows if it's yearor The fact is, we use the current christian invented calendar because it works. I mean really, does anyone think about religion when they look at the calendar?

They're "Christian" because they were invented by Christians and no other reason. What do you all want- a timeline with zero on it? Everyone agrees Jesus Christ is a good point to start at! Stop denying people of faith. Your world is dependent on us who have faith. There's a difference between ignorance and stupidity. Figure it out.

I would have thought those with strong religious backgrounds and beliefs would easily see that. Surely you see common bonds going back to biblical times, but do you still see them in Neolithic Humans who have just learned how to use tools and build simple structures?

But atheistic groups don't have to go around telling everyone that God or Jesus don't exist and never did. Similarly, Christian groups have the responsibility to hold back their opinions on "feeling sorry" for those who don't believe and cramming "god bless you's" or "Jesus loves you's" down everyone's throat.

It's not your place or your right, and you're wrong. I'm not religious, but I am spiritual, and I know well that God is not a magician. We were given intellect-and if you insist that we weren't, where did it come from? Is there anything common to us all? Everybody has its own thing, so it's better for me to count the date from the perspective of before and after Jesus Christ came to earth.

Whether you like it or not, it happened. God bless. I am trying to eliminate the Christian faith from my life altogether. I can't believe anything that religion has spewed. I call "Christmas" Mas. It is not a big deal for me. I believe in evolution and natural selection. I cannot believe that we were created by some superior being. It is literally impossible. This way, I don't have to feel like I'm giving all of the historical credit to the Christians. Personally, I don't even believe Jesus existed.

And all the mega-Christians will say they "feel sorry" for me. Really, really? I know I won't be "condemned to hell" in the afterlife. I don't have any worries sitting on my back. BCE and CE There is one major bonus point. When typing, or when reading someone else's handwriting, it would be far easier to get BCE and CE mixed up by just losing the "B".

congratulate, this

Much harder to get AD confused with how BC looks. Isn't God a "vengeful and wrathful god"? Jesus was a peaceful prophet in many religions, condemned to a horrible death for sharing his beliefs.

Leave it alone, and let people opine on their own about their faith and spiritual beliefs.

thank for the

On to the date, BC AD we so common, because Christianity eventually morphed into a church that had to spread a finger into virtually every nook and corner of the globe. But how is this so? BC became AD virtually and literally overnight.

Just as the clock would now chime midnight. Jesus didn't exist, and was promptly dead overnight? This doesn't change the need for historical records of what happened to "primitive" civilizations. We count the dates currently based on the orbit between the sun and earth. Basically, where the sun lies in the sky. Ancient Egyptians also used the sun: Ra, the Sun God. They worshiped this god. Is it sacrilege that we still use this as our main means of not only timebut on life itself?

I'm curious about the religious sect's opinion here. Not being argumentative. Where does the Bible stop, and physical science begin -and vice versa? Hope everyone's new year CE turns out to be much better than the last. Happy trails all. There is no doubt that the Lord Jesus died on the cross for our sins. And there is no doubt that the Lord God Almighty turned his back on his only begotten son, so that we may be saved from the Wrath of God.

Now whether you believe in God or not, that does not change the fact that He is real, He sent his Son to die for our sins past, present, and futureand he will judge those who do not accept His Son as their Savior. Now like I said, whether you believe it or not, it is true. Read Luke Repent, I beg you all, call on the name of the Lord Jesus for mercy from the wrath of God. When did this come out? It's like they're trying too get rid of Jesus as a historical person, which he was. What event happened that suddenly declared "Oh hey we're now in the common era.

Two thousand and four thousand years ago are relatively mere milliseconds in time of human existence. To quibble over a man-made vacuous subject about which no one but no one has ever known or ever will know is obviously fruitless. Yet another example of language being sanitised. S oon it will be impossible to even use terminology like men and women in case we offend hermaphrodites.

It doesn't matter what you or I think. I don't know how we would change it anyhow, to be honest, we live or I live in a very capitalistic country and that money is not in my pocket. I don't make the laws and I don't get the almighty buck. Show me actual living proof that christ exists, and I'll show you a virgin whore.

I would give my life to see some proof of your savior's existence. Anyone can be a christian: child molesters, murderers, rapists, crooks, pimps, thieves, and complete morons who have no self knowledge are the ones who believe in christ!

Pg 13: BC, AD, BCE, CE, and BP dates

They are "good christians". You can be the most despicable human being on the planet, but if you believe in christ you are cool. It's just a cloak for screw ups.

Instead of finding value in yourself and the world around you, you remain in your insecurity and "believe" that something other than yourself can save yourself.

Ha Ha. Their true names were revealed to us in the original texts of Scripture and the 10 Commands, all od which were given to us in Hebrew. All of Scripture supports this and we can now see the evil control that Satan has on the sacred Names by changing them through the evil power of the Jesuits of the Catholic church.

Then many people will wish they not denied Him. SineQuaNon Post 49 Well it seems to me that the prevalent view being expressed here is that everyone must adhere to the idea that the American way of defining time is of the most relevance. Surely the way of defining time should be the one that has been in existence the longest which would make the chinese calendar the most relevant.

It must also be pointed out that if we as a race believe in freedom of religion then the new system of defining dates BCE, CE is the most in line with this inalienable human right. There are a lot more religions in the world then Christianity and, I believe, countries other then America.

To say that we must define time due to the christian beliefs of one of the world's youngest countries which houses only million of the world's population of 6 billion-plus is arrogant in the extreme, and is, as has been previously mentioned in other comments, rather offensive. Before Christian Era. Christian Era. Like it or not we date things by the birth of Christ. If we wish to change this system, then we need to change our start dates for the break between the ancient civilizations and the more modern, or perhaps have no break at all and date as if we know when the world began.

Maybe we should toss all the dating conventions into a hat and choose one. Maybe the Jewish calendar. The Buddhist. The Chinese. The Mayan, nope that ends in Silly season is coming our way.

Just because you dislike a terminology does not mean that you are not in fact using a given date as your start date. Once you use that date; you can't or shouldn't pretend that you don't use it. Our 'Western Society' uses Christ's birth date as the start.

And people who use facts for a living should know this. Why pretend otherwise? AD and CE are pointless anyway. Are we afraid to refer to Christ in connection to history?

God created time so good luck taking him out of the equation. By the way, make sure you have read the entire Bible before you call it just a book of stories passed down God will change your life via the Bible, He did mine.

When did we start using AD and BC? Why?

This is His love story written for you. Please do not miss out on His great love! Christianity still wins! Removing Christianity from the world? If you want to be Christian, then be Christian and stop harassing other people and criticizing their religions. Who knows what is right. Are you saying that you know all that God knows? The bigger point is this: is it killing anyone to refer to the 7th century AD as the 7th century CE? I can't believe that a change in recording historic dates is frustrating you all so much.

It is quite obvious that most of you know nothing of history. If you did, your eyes would be much more open. Our country is engulfed in the ways of close-minded Christians so this demonic change is nothing compared to what other religions have to face in the US. The Bible teaches to love and respect.

So if you really are Christian, respect others! We are to teach others about God. Not throw God out the window for someone else's god. We don't use a Buddhist calendar, or the Chinese, or the Muslem's. This provided very clear and useful information for me.

I can make up my own mind as to which I prefer to us when writing my dissertation. As for Christians forcing things on others - if people don't like the person whose birthday is being celebrated, they don't need to eat his cake and open his presents. As for being offended by Christians, who pray in public, why are they offended? Is it because they are ungrateful to the One who has shown them everlasting kindness and are uncomfortable to see others thanking the Lord for all he does for them?

If they are so offended at the Lord, they should stop walking on his planet, eating his food, and breathing his air.

consider, that

Nobody likes to keep giving things to those who are unthankful, and neither does the Lord. Those who truly honor the Lord are the ones who are allowing his blessings to come upon this nation. As a Christian myself, I am aware that God and God alone is the one to judge. No one here knows who or what is correct and right as you were not around during the times of Jesus to know. All you have is a basis from a book, The Bible, which has been translated so many times, who knows what the true Bible really says.

Doesn't common sense and history tell you that stories are passed down through time and everyone is guilty of adding and taking away from what was originally intended to be the main focus. The main focus being, believe in God the Creator of all, believe that God sent his only Son to teach his good word and die for our sins in which all one needs is to have faith and believe that this happened.

Take a moment and sit back, think about America "The Great" and think about how far from God we've fallen Everything this country stands for is Evil, Money, Greed; Everything has to be bigger and better than everyone else. Do you really think God is happy about us being this way? Do you really think God is happy about putting his name on money which is the root of all evil according to the Bible? I think that a lot of people have a huge misunderstanding of the word and meaning of Christianity and need to read a little more before knocking anyone else's faith and beliefs.

I know where my place is in this world and where my place is with God, Do you truly know yours? I just have one question for my fellow Christians-How come the only voices that are heard today are the voices of those who are anti-God, anti-decency, anti-freedom, and anti-America?

Why are we allowing our beliefs to be gradually eliminated while a small yet vocal minority continues to successfully remove all that is good, pure, and decent and replace them with perversion, lies, hatred, and fascism.

Jesus Christ came to save all mankind from Hell. How can you hate and be against someone who loved you enough that he sent his only son to die for you? In an effort to "not offend anyone," we are selling our souls to Satan. Next will be Fahrenheit Thy Will Be Done This is not the statement of someone who thinks God will not act on his behalf.

Not only did the founding fathers of this nation believe in God who is Jesus Christbut they relied on his help to rescue them out of the hand of the oppressor, just as the Israelites relied on him to deliver them from the Egyptians. Let me ask you England was the power of the day. How then, did the Americans gain the victory? It was through the divine providence of their God, Jesus Christ, in answer to their prayers.

It is supremely ungrateful to accept the Lord's help and then turn your back on him after he has delivered you. All those who claim this is not a Christian nation are despising their deliverer who granted them liberty and justice. The founding fathers took special care to NOT make the U. Most of the founders were deists, in that they believed the universe had a creator, but one that does not concern himself with the daily lives of humans and does not directly intervene in human affairs creator is essentially nature.

This was written under Washington and signed under Adams. The U. Only those who are afraid of a higher being Jesus Christ are the ones who can not except that they can not save themselves. Only Jesus Christ gave his life for their misguided ways! Or if an event in history happened in AD, I and assume this was after Christ's death. I'll still refer to Christ regardless since I'm not offended by his existence. To me, its just confusing. Further more, if you are going to change something, then change it.

And not just once, a bunch of times in just the Preface of the book alone. I can't imagine how confused I'm going to get with dates now. I just came back from a trip to Washington D. Can the liberties of a nation be secure when we have removed a conviction that these liberties are the gift of GOD? That his justice cannot sleep forever.

Aug 31,   Now You Know: When Did People Start Saying That the Year Was 'A.D.'? Illustration of Isaac Newton, circa and how and when new systems of dating were adopted, remain uncertain. Dec 22,   Here's a quick explanation of what BC and AD mean. I also take a peek into the origins of these terms and what is an acceptable labeling system today. Here's some sources: In the modern calendar, we label all years with B.C. (before Christ) or A.D. (anno domini, or "in the year of our lord"). There is no "zero" year - in this system, the year Christ was born is 1 A.D., and the year preceding it is 1 B.C. This practice was first suggested in the sixth century A.D., and was adopted by the pope of that time.

The bible states that " Just as Esther, we have been placed here for such a time as this! I didn't encounter this "B. But not surprised, sadly. This country was founded on Christian beliefs and now we are trying to erase any signs of it. I wish it wasn't happening, but it is.

Slowly, but surely. God has blessed America. It's time for America to bless God now. So why is it a good idea to call it something other than what it really is? The only people I've ever heard complain about them are white Americans. I hear it a lot on the History channel and it really "bugs" me. Christ was and is a central religious figure as well as Mohammed, and the others.

If we recognize them why can't they recognize Christ? It's been around since the s. Someone just wants some press. The world wants to accept everyone so badly that they are willing to shove Christianity down the drain to do so. Thereby doing the exact opposite of what they claim to want.

The influence of western culture and scholarship upon the rest of the world in turn led to this system of dating becoming the most widely used one across the globe today. Many scholars in historical and religious studies in the West in recent years have sought to lessen the explicitly Christian meaning of this system without abandoning the usefulness of a single, common, global form of dating.

For this reason the terms common era and before the common eraabbreviated as CE and BCE, have grown in popularity as designations.
