then why is the term "A.D." and "B.C." used to determine the timeline of when he walked the earth?
if there is no hard evidence that Jesus Christ existed why do we use the chronological terms?
this is not meant to stir up drama, just simply curious.........

The year numbering system was devised by the monk Dionysius Exiguus in the year 525 to replace the Diocletian years, because he did not wish to continue the memory of a tyrant who persecuted Christians; all it proves is that the man who came up with it believed in Christ and so did a lot of people in that time, just because a lot of people believe/d something doesn't prove it exists (they also thought the earth was flat then).
Personally, I think Jesus was a real man, he taught good things, etc., I just don't believe he was God.
