There is a conspiracy that says there are 300 years of history that are fiction or made up. If that is the case then the current year is 1717 AD.

Is Ancient History Completely Made Up By 'The Man'?

The most accurate we would have would be from when time began.

Maybe we should just be the year 13.7 billion.
Of course aliens on a planet which orbits it's sun twice as fast would say it's the year 27.4 billion.

If we want to be consistent across the universe it would need to be based on planck time.

They say there's more plancks in a second then there are seconds since the big bang so the number would have a lot of digits. I'm not sure if we even have enough paper in the world to write down the correct "year" on a calendar.

Might be easier to just use the calendars we have now.

But counting forward from four or five thousand years ago, eliminates these mirror year "hiccups"!

Not when people are trying to discuss what happened before four or five thousand years ago. Your system is no help to pre-historians and geologists.
In any case, the discussion is not about which calendar system is better, but about how the conventional western calendar actually works.

Indeed. The question in hand was how the Christian calendar works, not which calendar was right. I did point out, in my first post in the thread, that there is no such thing as a "real" year number, because they are all conventional labels.

The lack of a year zero bites in any mirror image calendar. Babylonian and Indian calendars area lot older than our's. It whether counting from an astronomical conjunction, or some King's reign, without a zero, they're still going to be a year short. So Nostradamus's 1999 equals Dec 31, 2000 AD. Plus Seven months equals July 31, 2001 AD. Trick numerology then subtracts 19 days back to mid July, and it's "Climb Mt Nitaka" moment, And the second # 19. "He will bring to life, the King of the Mongols".
Fake interpretations left the doors open for the 9/11, 2001 AD attacks by wildly successful terrorists! Suffice to say that today, "World Karma" is hanging over Tokyo and Tehran. Yes! These old dates have bitten us in our tush, and will do so again.

If the Romans had the zero, then the year, 1999 would also be 1999 AD
