RE: (And A Rant About "The New Millenium Hoax")

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
That's not the point. Since Dionysius Exiguus established the fore-runner to
our modern calendar in 525 A.D., we have all agreed to abide by it. That's
almost 1,500 years of agreement, mind you!

The thing that is really galling is that the public doesn't know anything
anymore, and the mainstream media pander to their ignorance.

There was no "year 0" in "Dennis the Short's" calendar. We began counting at
1 A.D. Years 1-1000 were the first millenium A.D.; Years 1001-2000 are the
second millenium. The Third Millenium starts in 2001!

I read in the newspaper a few weeks ago that most theological historians
believe that the fellow who came up with the current calendar (sometime
around 700 A.D.) got the date of Jesus' birth wrong by a few years.  So the
new millennium probably began about 3 or 4 years ago anyway.
