I appreciate the point you have raise here. Firstly bc/ad still doesn't involve integers (negatives). But I see the point you make. I think it also makes my point. We know there was not such point as "0" time in-between 1bc and 1ad. Nor did people in 1ad refer to themselves as living in the year 1. It would have been hard for the old folks lol.....but can we show a point of 0 time at all? I say no.
