    1st century is the first years A.D.

    B.C. is generally referred to in terms of 'ages'
  4. It'd be -6th and -4th century, respectively.

    Yeah with BCE its a number backward to indicate the century; with CE it's a number ahead.

    564 BCE (BC in religious context) = 6th century

    225 CE (AD in religious context) = 3rd century

    Actually, if its

    "280 B.C." it would be "3rd Century B.C."

    If its "280 A.D." it would be "3rd Century A.D."

    we are currently in the 21st Century

    in 1999 we were in the 20th century

    quite obviously swiffer is right, and just to add to the discussion, in modern times with all the talk of religious freedom from state influence, CE is the politically correct way of saying before christ instead the genius' called it "common era" thus making BCE stand for "before common era"
    it also means that we cant trust anyone due to the fact that we started counting years on a whim, astronomers and scholars have pointed more to him being born anywhere four to twelve years from the projected date.
