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

Certainly there was a year 0, by default.  Just like there was a year -2000.
The world existed and time went by.  Dionysius based his calendar on an
event that happened over 500 year before his time.  He may have been off a
little but given the technology of the era he didn't do too bad.  Our
calendar is completely arbitrary.  Today has a 1/365 chance of being the
anniversary of the big bang.  Happy New Year.
