Bce instead of bc and ad

I think its kind of silly that instead of using BC and AD they use BCE now. Its just throwing a wrench in what we have used now for 2021 years. Its too confusing to stop using it. Seems like some triggered atheists decided to chanfe it.

Is It Normal?

  • I'm not sure it was created because atheists didn't like it though, but to make the dating system less focused on one single religion. But I do think it is kind of stupid alright though (and I'm an atheist).

    If you're going to change it then you should also change the starting year. What makes 1 AD the start of a new era? Plus there's lots of words we have that have originated from different religions, like the months and days.

    • I dont really care about that it just seems kind of pointless to go through the confusion just to get rid of a religious term.

    • Maybe they can stick a year zero in there and fix that fuck up on the Gregorian calendar.

  • Actually, this was common in my college by at least 2010. BCE-before common era. It is not just atheism- we cannot determine the exact year of Christ's birth. It could be up to 6 A.D.!
