And there's a planet called Saturn, so apparently the Roman God of time and agriculture also exists.
Newsflash dickhead. Dates in that era in the Roman Empire were measured in the reign of the current Emporer and months revolved round the 29½ day lunar cycle. Gregorian monks made the Gregorian calendar over 1,000 years later.

So what did they call it when Jesus was fifteen? Year: 15 ANQYD (After-not-quite-yet-death)?

That was, I believe, the best possible response anyone could give to this post.

OK, I'm seriously tipsy, but I still see the reason of Before Christ and Anno Domini. But, maybe that's only because I've studied Latin for three years and English for - wait for it - 12 years. Have you?

I don't know why people think this. It takes 1 second of thought to realise that AD cannot mean 'after death'. If it meant after death then he would have been born and killed within a year.

Jesus was crusified and died 30AD... So he died 30 years AFTER (his own) DEATH? And here I thought scripture said he was a zombie for only three days.

So, he lived less than one year? There is no year in-between BC and AD, stupid.

Yeah, Jesusites, explain the 30 year discepency.Why, It's almost like someone made up that shit without thinking it through

I think we should date everything around Muhammad and see how fast they start screaming about freedom FROM religion.
Oh, wait, I guess BM wouldn't work. LOL.

'Anno Domini' is "In the year of our lord".
And you wanna know a sad story? My 9th grade teacher* once said it was "after death". When I pointed out the real meaning of the abbreviation, he said "Ah, the Latin translation".
