OT: CHAT: Millennium Fun

From: HIPSource@aol.com


While everyone is having such fun with the Millennium question you might wish
to consider the most succulent factiod of all in this regard. To wit: In the
opinion of Biblical Scholars and experts at the U.S. Naval Observatory the new
Millennium actually arrived at least two year ago. 

In an article in the local mulletwrapper bylined Scripps Howard News Service
we are informed that a Greek monk living in Scythia in the sixth century AD
named Dionysius Exiguus, who drew up a new  ecclesiastical calender to avoid
using the dates of Diocletian as points of reference, made a one percent error
in his calculations for the date of the birth of Christ, and thus Jesus of
Nazareth was actually born between 4BC and 7BC. Thus we are already well into
the next millennium and fine distinctions about the moment of passage must
been seen in this context.
