Welcome to the last show of 2017 for Giants of History! In this mini episode/show update, we discuss the difference between the time designations BCE/CE and BC/AD. We also provide a brief update on what's to come in 2018. We hope you enjoy!
I appreciate your show, which is excellent and informative. That said, I disagree with your position on the BCE versus BC issue. I agree with the listener who took the position you are being politically correct. All issues aside, whatever term is used, the foundation point for our dating system is Jesus Christ. I am not religious but I am no fan of political correctness. If you truly want to be “historical“ then another dating system exclusive of Jesus Christ should be employed. Otherwise, it is a distinction without a difference.
