BC means "Before Christ" or "Before the Messiah." This religious component makes CE and BCE more attractive to many people -- particularly secularists, non-Christians and liberal Christians.CE and BCE are notations that are not based on religion or myth. The AD/BC notation was first proposed by the monk Dionysius Exiguus (Dennis the Little) in the year 525 CE.
The great early astronomer Kepler dated that eclipse to 4 BCE.People also convert BP into BC and AD to understand it better.Think someone in the UK converting metric to imperial in their head.What happens is that you are not removing Christianity as intended but rather reinforcing it. In fact it is frequently used across archaeology and history. The further back you go the more likely it is to be used. After that date carbon dating gets messy and goes wrong. The problem here is that we have used BC and AD for so long it is part of everything.It is too integrated to be changed easily or at all. To use BP would make the dissemination of historical information more difficult.
