    http://www.thefreedictionary.com/B.C. - Adv.1.B.C. - before the Christian era; used following dates before the supposed year Christ was born; "in 200 BC"


    http://www.gotquestions.org/BC-AD.html - “In recent times, there has been a push to replace the B.C. and A.D. labels with B.C.E and C.E., meaning “before common era” and “common era,” respectively. The change is simply one of semantics—that is, AD 100 is the same as 100 CE; all that changes is the label. The advocates of the switch from BC/AD to BCE/CE say that the newer designations are better in that they are devoid of religious connotation and thus prevent offending other cultures and religions who may not see Jesus as “Lord.” The irony, of course, is that what distinguishes B.C.E from C.E. is still the life and times of Jesus Christ.”

    Disclaimer: I am not an expert. This show represents my attempt to understand the history of Philosophy as I do my own reading. Much of this material I have only read once or twice before I present it. The source material provided above is a much more professional (albeit longer) discourse on these ideas. For this show I would like to emphasise that I have only scratched the surface of Aristotle's deep ideas in this episode.
