# Dating system

In chronology, **dating system** (TR:35) (LH:4) (**TL**:39) is a method of time-keeping with respect to the counting of the annual rotations of the earth about the sun, generally based on an agreed “zero year”, from which years forward and backwards are counted; or with respect to categorizations of epochs, eras, or events, such as geological periods or extinction periods, or cosmological events, e.g. big bang dating system.

## Overview

Historically, many systems have been employed to date or number years of revolution of the earth around the sun.

### BC/AC

*See main: Dionysian calendar*

The current dating system, employed in scientific writing, is the myth-based Christ birth dating system, invented in 525AD (1260AUC) by Dionysius Exiguus, Roman monk, during the reign of Charlemagne (742-814), introduced the **BC**/**AD** dating system, usurped the previous AUC dating system, with a “from Rome construction” dating, according to him to have begun at the approximate **mid-point (6.5 BC)** of the reign of Caesar Augustus, from 27 BC-14 AD, but overtly themed it as a “birth of Christ” dating system, to align with the then-established Christianity form of the state religion, but passed along to us with no exact details as to how the "zero year" was determined.

### BE/AE

*See main: Thimsian calendar*

The new scientific dating system, employed in Hmolpedia, is the "atoms first seen" (**BE**/**AE**) dating system, invented in 65 AE (2020AD) by Libb Thims , which dates the zero year to the year when atoms were first seen by the human eye, which occurred in the year 1955AD or 0AE.

### Other systems

#### Petrarch

In 1345, Petrarch was dating his letters as follows: “1345 of the year of the god who you never knew”.

#### Paine

In 1802, Thomas Paine, in his Painean calendar, was dating his letters as follows: "February 21st, 1802, **since the fable** of Christ".

#### Holocene calendar

In 1993, Cesare Emiliani, a geological micropaleontologist, proposed the “holocene calendar”, the zero year defined as the “birth of Jesus” minus 10,000 years. Hence, to exemplify, with comparison to the elementum calendar, the year he proposed the new calendar system would be defined as follows:

Dionysian | Holocene | Elementum |
---|---|---|

1993 ACM | 11933 HE | 38 AE |

Emiliani introduced this calendar to eliminate the BC–AD chronology gap caused by the lack of a year 0.^{[1]}
