## Main Question or Discussion Point

Hi everyone,

i really dont understand the philosophy of BC/AD notations..

but i only know the order goes like this:

....., 3 BC, 2 BC, 1 BC, 1 AD, 2 AD, 3AD, .....

Now in which year we are now...

when we say 2010, will it mean 2010 AD??

Why historians always prefer to say in BC AD notations, which is really confusion for me??

this confusion i have from my childhood!

thanks
