When talking about a really, really, really long time ago, do you say BCE or BC?
How about BCSE. Before Christ supposedly existed.
I don't really see what the big deal is either way.
BC. I never use BCE, and never will.
Christ (Jesus of Nazareth) as a historical man is a fact very few dispute. His exact birthday is not known, so it was arbitrarily picked. BC references the man. BCE references the religion. It amazes me that separationists would actually prefer BCE.
BCE means Before the Common Era. It references the level of human civilization established in Africa around the same time as much of he biblical events were recorded to have taken place.
Sure he was a real person whether or not he was the son of god. But still, why base our whole chronology around him?
Why upset a perfectly good system (or change it's name) all because you don't agree with it?
Neither. I say "a really, really, really long time ago"
Yeah, who doesn't?
"You know? All those mathematicians in Greece from like 200 a really, really, really long time ago?"
"You know? All those mathematicians in Greece from like a really, really, really long time ago?"
i don't understand why they felt the need to change it to BCE. until we change calendars, i see no need for a change in nomenclature, as christ's birth is the basis for our calendar.
As a liberal that and they say it is insensitive to atheists
Then tell them they need to suck it up and grow a pair.
They did...of ovaries
BCE, I'd prefer not to reference a man...ah shit, I don't feel like getting into a debate on religion tonight. Au revoir.
