About 1,500 years ago, a Christian monk named Dionysius Exiguus began to make notations in order to calibrate the passing of the years. The notations were BC for before the birth of Christ, and AD for Anno Domni or "in the year of our Lord" after the birth of Christ. The BC appears after the year and AD before the year.
But in recent years, some politically correct authors have decided to replace BC with BCE which they claim stands for a laboriously contrived concept they call "Before Common Era." They claim this new notation will not "offend" people who are not Christian. And they replace AD with CE for just Common Era.
So is the case for replacing BC and AD on the off chance that the notation MIGHT offend someone who is not Christian a sensible idea just for the sake of changing a system of notation in common use worldwide for the last 1,400 years? It makes sense to use BCE and CE only if you worship at the altar of a secular god and you are trying to erase any reference to Christianity in the history of lthe iterature of western civilization for the past 1,500 years.
As my grandmother used to say, "Don't be silly."
