Quote# 2930

Another thing you can look at, that is secular is the reson we are in the year 2003 AD and 2004 years ago it 1 BC. If he was not an important figure in His day do you honestly think the secular world would have recorded time based upon His life?

Well it's:

5109 according to the Hindu calendar
5769 according to the Hebrew calendar
1430 according to the Islamic calendar
1388 according to the Persian calendar

Notice how none of them have AD or BC anywhere.

The secular world uses BCE (Before Common Era) and CE (Common Era), though some people substitute "Christian" for "Common". Not that it matters if they do, we're all too aware that Christians exist.

Well, no... The whole B.C. / A.D. thing was instituted much later, based off estimates...

You do know that the BC/AD thing came a very long time after Jesus died, right?

The Gregorian Calender was an altered Julian Calender, same amount of days and leap years already present. It's like winter solstice,spring solstice, you call them Christmas and Easter, you Christianized existing Pagan celebrations.

You steal everything.

If he was such an important figure, why is the year off and we don't actually "know" the date he was born?
