Re: A83: (no subject)

It all depends on where you start.  Obviously humans have been around this
earth much longer than 2 millennia.  According to the Bible at least, its
somewhere more like 4 or 5 millennia.  I believe the Gregorian calendar
attempted to start when Jesus was born, however there was no year 0.  It
goes right from 1 BC to 1 AD.  However, now most scholars I believe think
that Jesus was born sometime like 4 BC.  So our calendar is really screwed
up. :)
