Today's post is brought to you by the letters A, B, C and D and the numbers 0 through 2007.
Maybe I'm alone on this, but I can't stand it when people mark dates by the eras of CE and BCE. Common Era and Before Common Era? What's so common about the last 2007 years? Why should the 4.6 billion years that the earth existed before then not be considered common?
There is no good reason for it.
