Why did the annual calendar zero out and start again (B.C. and A.D.)?
What did humanity use for a calendar or annual dating system, Before Christ (B.C.) or the year zero (0)?
Too many discrepancies on the calendaring aspects of the dating systems for my liking, but one thing is for sure, the year "zero" during that particular time frame would be totally asinine for the ones living during that Era. Can you imagine if we all of a sudden just said, "Hey, to hell with it; we are starting over to the year '0' this year!" Ha!
At any rate, I've never met one single person yet that actually knew when Jesus' birthday actually was, for example.
In a thumbnail, my answer to your question is: Politics!
