  • It's NOT a new decade

    It really is not a new decade.

    In order for it to be a new decade in 2010 there would need to be a year 0 in the Gregorian calendar. There is not a year zero.

    3 BC, 2 BC, 1 BC, 1 AD, 2 AD, 3AD etc.

    New decade starts in 2011

    just like the new millennium, people confused it. It started in 2001, not 2000.

    In short, if you want it to be a new decade, century, millennium has to end in a 1.

        Since we're being anal...

        B.C. and A.D.... Let's talk about these year suffixes.

        AD doesn't stand for "After Death" either.

        That would imply that in the span of one year, Christ was born and died (twice).

        AD doesn't mean "After death." It's literally, Anno Domini: The year of our Lord (in Latin).

        When applied in context, it means, "The year of Christ."

        1 AD is the first year of Christ.

        Not after his death.

          Yup.

          When I first asked what BC and AD was abbreviated for (way back when), I was told Before Christ and After Death.

          The new trendy abbreviations are BCE and CE

          I grew up with BC and AD so I use those.

              Actually you are somewhat incorrect.

              There is also ACN and PCN.

              Ante Christum Natum

              and

              Post Christum Natum

              But they had the same meanings. Before the Birth of Christ and After the Birth of Christ.

                    It doesn't matter, the world will end in 2012, so it won't be a full decade anyways

                      There is NO year 0 in the Gregorian calender

                      look it up or google it.

                      The first year in the calender is 1 AD

                      1 AD to 2 AD

                      1 year

                      2ad to 3 AD

                      2 years

                      3 AD to 4 AD

                      3 years

                      4 AD to 5 AD

                      4 years

                      5 AD to 6 AD

                      5 years

                      6 AD to 7 AD

                      6 years

                      7AD to 8 AD

                      7 Years

                      8AD to 9 AD

                      8 years

                      9 AD to 10 AD

                      9 years

                      10 AD to 11 AD

                      10 years and complete a full decade at 11 AD

                        Aye, that is correct. It went from 1 BC to 1 AD.

                        That is also why when people talk about a certain century it is always 1 century before what they say - for instance.

                        The first century is 1 AD-100 AD

                        Eighteenth Century? 1701-1800
                        Nineteenth Century? 1801-1900
                        Twentieth Century? 1901-2000
                        Twenty-First Century? 2001-2100

                              Thats 10 years... thats a decade.
                              You're assuming 00-01 was a part of this decade... it's not.. it was the last year of the old decade...

                              Therefore, BA is correct. The year 2000 was the last year of the old millennium and the last year of last decade, and 2010 is the last year of THIS decade. 2011 will start the new decade.

                              But no one will listen, BA, no matter how correct you are.

                              I tried the same damn thing 10 years ago when everyone was intent on the world ending because the "millennium" was over... :doh:
