"Based around the great empires of the past. Like the Age of the Romans or AR, the Age of Egyptains AE, Age of the Greeks AG."

Fair enough, though empires often overlap each other, it's not like one takes off where the other leaves off. Persia and Greece and Egypt coexisted for quite some time, China and India have been around forever, etc. (are we in the American age now?)

"To leave it still centered around Christ and not say it has anything to do with him is ludicrous. That is really what offends me about it."

Understandable, I'd imagine it was left the way it is (1 AD = 1 CE) just to avoid confusing people and creating as little backlash as possible.
