I was conducting intense research on the history of cell phones in the Zhou dynasty, and came across the CE BCE references. It reminded me of Solzhenitsyn's observation that to destroy a people you must first sever their roots. I can only hope that this is a fad that will go the way of Leif Garrett. Because the profound stupidity of it all makes my eyes hurt when I encounter it. And so, I will read it as "Christian Era" and "Before Christian Era", but never use it because that would be embarrassing.
