BC went to AD at the time of birth. However, we still lost one year because the calendar starts at 1 at birth. Only the Hindus had the concept of zero at that time. It was later on that Islam introduced zero to the west. You would think that god would have told the christians or jews about zero.

Finally we got to say something related to astronomy, but still not the big bang.

For me the whole of scripture includes the Talmud, the Kabala, the Hindu Veddas, etc., the Buddhist Sutras and the Koran. You should read the Koran. It is mostly about Christ. But it does say three times that the observant jew is the most spiritual of all people. Not a word about Christianity as far as I can see.

I should check that last statement. I wonder if the Koran is on-line.
