connor -at- ecentral -dot- com asked about usage of dating systems.

We follow the Council of Biology Editors manual, Scientific Style and

traditional BC with BCE and AD with CE, reflecting cultural sensitivity to
the feelings of the majority of the people of the world, who are not
Christians. The divisions of time are the same.
