    C.E. means Common Era (what many old farts, like me, refer to as A.D.)

    B.C.E., as has already been mentioned is now used to replace B.C.

    It is politically correct talk designed to reflect the antipathy the 'enlightened' people have to the place of Christ and Christian faith in our world. Most scholars these days use the B.C.E. and C.E. designations.

    Some of us hold overs have held out for using B.C. and A.D.

    Merry Christmas!
    Happy Chanukah!

    Yeah.

    No one has ever accused me of being politically correct.

    MERRY Christmas!
