Common era dating system who is ashley rickards dating
While the use of the phrase "Common Era" has existed for hundreds of years, only recently have politically correct liberals attempted to replace all instances of 'AD' with 'CE.' The original use of 'CE' was to avoid the common practice of countries basing their dates on when their rulers reached power or were born, i.e.
Thus, the astronomical date for 2000 CE is simply 2000 or 2000.
(In that system, "AD" stood for Anno Diocletiani, and should not be confused with the present-day AD system.) Because Dionysius Exiguus in the year 525 wanted to end the memorialization of an evil man who persecuted Christians, he invented a new numbering system based on his calculations of the birth year of Jesus Christ.
However, as he miscalculated, the terms BCE/CE are more accurate than BC/AD as the last few years BC were not actually Before Christ, and hence 1 AD is not actually the first year after Jesus' birth.
The Treaty of Maastricht (1993 AD) replaced the Treaty of Rome (in effect since 1957 AD).
Another suggestion for the origin of the term "Common Era" (CE) is an anti-Christian attempt to conceal that Jesus is the historical basis for the primary calendar dating system.
For instance, in the date AD 2001, the prefix "AD" stands for "Anno Domini" which is Latin for "the year of our Lord." Similarly, in the date 500 BC, the suffix "BC" stands for "Before Christ." In sixth century Europe, the concept of "zero" was still unknown. Furthermore, modern scholars believe Christ's birth was actually four years earlier than Exiguus thought.
