BC = Before Christ
BCE = Before Common Era
First; The BCE is obviously intended to replace BC with a Non-Religious Connotation, but retain sufficient Familiarity so as not to confuse The Lay Reader ( Too Much ).
i hate it.
It’s an Evil Compromise.
The Second Point is : What is meant by Common Era ?
It seems like that would either mean; After The Time of Christ, or After The Current Calendar was Created, which was at The Time of Christ, or it means whenever ‘Now’ is.
( ? )
i would like To Propose a New Term: BE, Written as ]BE[.
Essentially; Before The Commercialization of light Bulbs.
So that The Italian Renessance would no longer be confusingly referred to as The 1400s or The 15th Century,
But as; 400 ]BE[.
