Quote# 1125

Meanwhile, what I meant by B.C.E. was: before the common error. That error being in the worldly calendar we use which carries the mathematical absurdity that Jesus was born B.C. If our calendar was correct, Jesus would be born 1 A.D. But our calendar is in error - hence B.C.E. = before the common error ( i.e. error in this calendar).

I always kinda thought 1 A.D. would be the first year Jesus was alive, and Dec. 25th would be New Year's, but apparently somebody screwed up.

Ain't science grand? It can actually increase its own accuracy in the light of additional data. Of course, the option is a bronze age collection of documents that would put us 4 years out of whack,,, or is that 6 years,,,, or 6 years 11 days,,,, what the hell was that Pope Gregory thinking? Or maybe some of us (eg. paulharth6) just don't realise that dates are just names, put there for the convenience of chronology?

Further proof that most of what fundies state as fact is stuff they pulled out of their asses.

Seems to me the Common Error is that Jesus was born

or, rather, that Jesus was

I was taught that the historical Jesus was born sometime around 7-4 BC, based on when that king commanded the taxing... and around July not December
