Remember time started before AD, if you’re grouping years in 10s, 100s, and 1,000s you don’t start from the middle you go all the way back to the start of existence and count in groups to where we are now.
You did notice that we were discussing AD where the first decade is 1-10? And out of curiosity, in your belief system, when is the start of existence? It's not like temperature where we do know what the lowest possible value is.

One friend of mine is using AM 5780 as the current year for some purposes. For that calendar system, there can be no previous era given that Anno Mundi is a Latin version of מבריאת העולם. In yet another calendar system, it is currently 4717 with 4718 coming up in 19 days.

Anyhow, 'nuff said. Time to let this discussion die an unnatural death.
