There are a few issues with BC/AD:
Miscalculation

A.D. 1 was first calculated in the first millenium based on available knowledge at the time. Later on, it was found Jesus likely wasn't born that year, but a few years earlier (i.e., in the somewhat ironic 3¬Ė4 B.C. area). Marking it as the "Christian Era" (or more commonly, the "Common Era") allows the same epoch to be used even though the best calculation for Jesus's birth has changed.
Globalization

While Christians make up a very large chunk of the world's population, they are no where near the majority. Most organizations and political entities, for the sake of convenience, have adopted the Western calendar, but "Anno Domini"/"Before Christ" are meaningless terms. Replacing it with "Common Era"/"Before Common Era" reinforces the notion of a global, common epoch starting at the height of the Roman Empire.

When "Christian Era" is used, it's still clear what epoch is being referred to (i.e. the Western one) without having to have some special knowledge about what "anno domini" means or who Christ is.
LOL

Keep trying.

This statement shows you are a complete fool.
Did the Black people not like being called the "N" word?
Did Native American women like being called Squaws?
Do Gays like being called faggot?
Calling Christians apes is the same thing. Sorry people like you are so blind to that. Because a group of people decide to call humans apes does not make them correct or the absolute authority on the matter.
Call yourself what you like, and if you like the label ape then wear it proudly.
Don't be offended when others call you what you have labeled yourself.
Christians are not of the ape family like it or not. Our God created us in his image and there was no need to mutate.
Too bad. The word "ape" when used in this way is not derogatory at all, except for the well deserved self imposed derision of creatards themselves. Now creatard is a derogatory word, but I am very careful in how I use it. A creatard must show that he is a creatard first.

Christians are of the ape family like it or not. You are not different from any other human beings. In fact that is a racist statement if there ever was one. Your "God" is simply a fairy tale told to you by your mother, who heard it from her mother, etc. and so on.

Like it or not we have all of the winning cards in this debate.

Yes, you have very very weak evidence for the existence of your god. It consists solely of a bunch of nonsense written by bronze age sheep shaggers.

Seriously, do you think that evidence is reliable in any way at all?

why are the names of our days not christian? is your god weaker than the norse gods? you already admitted there are multiple gods...
Nope: not now, who more like it.
I have noted many uses of BC and AD
Still in use as widely as before atheist felt a need to try and rid science of Christ.

Even the Greek and Romans knew a or many gods had to exist they just didn't know where it or who they were so they listened to their science and came up with the list if gods.

We are so lucky that God has revealed himself to us and put an end to the guessing game.

"The word "ape" when used in this way is not derogatory at all"

Why yes it is. Christians were created in our Gods image. perfect the first time no need for mutations. Call us apes is like calling our whole belief system a lie. While I know you do this also I would hope you would know that we consider that derogatory also.

"Christians are of the ape family like it or not."

That's like saying gays are faggots like it or not because the slang Derogatory word in some clicks has the definition of gays.

Like it or not Christians are not apes we are man.

Obviously not, since you stated that all fundies are backed by their god, so there must be multiple gods, directly the opposite of what your cult teaches...

no, you have none. you would have given at least one of them by now if you did.

you have even tried, and they were found to not really be evidence, just more of your cult teachings.

I donít tell know body what to do and I keep my hands to my-self because if I do that I would be in violation of the law of non-contradiction, which is the absolute truth and foundation from which my understanding originates, and this governs my decisions and behavior as a supreme being WITH NO EXCEPTIONS. Since I up-hold and protect my ability to choose (absolute truth).

I must also respect all human beings ability to choose as if it way my own. I being a supreme being have nothing to do with controlling or ruling people through a dictator ship you assumptious FOOL who knows nothing of what absolute truths are.

IT'S YOUR WAY OF THINKING THAT CONTROLS PEOPLE AND GIVE BIRTH TO DICTATOR-SHIPS! HENCE, THROW INFINITE FORCE IN A MENTAL INSSTITUTION BECAUSE HE THINKS AND BEHAVES FREELY!

It's self-evident you have control issues!
