A very interesting and timely article; however, it’s odd that you couldn’t find it within yourself to use the letters “AD” in describing the era of a religious article about Christ and Christmas, and chose instead to use “CE.” In an effort to be as politically correct as possible you were also able to insult as many Christians as possible. Perhaps a graduate degree will give you some additional insight on this particular subject.
I’m glad you found the article interesting. We apply the same standards to all articles, regardless of content, and in this case follow standard academic nomenclature. It’s a shame that you found that insulting, although I’m curious as to why you would?
I’m sorry, Admin, that this would even have to be explained to you, or that you would even ask. BTW, here was an amendment to your “standards.”
“Her favorite points in History are those when engineering had a profound effect on the people of the time, from the Roman aqueduct of Segovia, c. A.D. 50, to the Panama Canal, c. 1914, to whatever’s next.”
So it appears that “we” may use A.D. in lieu of CE.
It appears that when I’ve responded in writing to something that runs counter to your claim that, “[W]e apply the same standards to all articles . . . ,” it suddenly disappears. Must have been considered an “obscene or offensive comment.” That’s okay, other than your comment section, I actually enjoy your website very much.
Don’t worry, you aren’t being censored! We are just a little slow to approve comments at this time of year. Ironically, perhaps, due to celebration of the event which started your initialism A.D. and New Years.
Thankyou for pointing our editorial oversight. We shall correct it ASAP.
st. nicholas was a greek (and greek orthodox) bishop. shouldn’t that be mentioned when talking about his history?
