Calender Dating has changed slowly
Some of you are probably aware, but this hasn't made any big news sites. Over the last decade, the BC and AD notion of time in a date has been replaced with a more secular, BC and CE respectively. I think it's a good idea, but my baptist friends accuse people who do that of worshiping the devil.

RE: Calender Dating has changed slowly
I'm all for a change in the names on the old time device... But the best we could come up with was BCE and CE? Lame. If we want it to catch on with the kids we need something cooler, and mascots... with sunglasses and tattoos. Plus they could smoke and swear. With large breasts. I vote for NB not bitchin and BT bitchin times.

Sorry, this is news to me, what does BC and CE stand for?
