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.

useless info care of the JBCministry of jeopardy counselling.
