General Winters found an ancient treasure!


He carefully examined one of the coins and saw that it was dated 20 BC. That is when he realized they were fake! How did he know?


2,000 Crystals will go to one of the Commanders to leave a comment and give the correct answer!

BC is the term before Christ, this term was not used until after his death and would not appear on coins.

"Coin" were not even used in this world until around 600 Bc.   Dated coins... not sure.. but probley around the 1500's.. so 

a 20 BC coin.... na. not possible.

I GOT THIS!!


"BC" stands for "Before Christ"


BC is just a way to point out a period of time before a large event.

We don't know exactly when the world started, so we cant really say "On Earth's 6075'th Birthday"

However we CAN use a 'well known' period of time (Christ's birth in this instance) to substantiate a time period 'before' (The world is NOT 2016 years old people, remember!) Peeps just needed a way to say '50 years earlier' or something like that.


That being said, in order to have "BC"  "Before Christ", Christ had to be born.


So before Christ was born (and recognized as the well known point in time/history) There was no way to say "Before Christ" There was no 'Christ' yet!!


It would be like saying today is 5 BA (five years before my car accident in which I died brutally)

There is no car accident in existence, I don't even know if there will be one. Therefore it is an invalid date measure


(hopefully didn't just jinks myself :P)






So, in short, at '20 BC' there was no Christ to be 'before' Therefore the coin is obviously faked. Only those AFTER Christs and after Christ was recognized as that point in time, would know anything about BC







EDIT:  GG Bootymaster! Didnt see your comment xD

Forget the Mutagen; we need Unicorns! (May also may or may not be a DCL somewhere out-n-about. Come say hi! :3)

I think below being the points

 

1.How can a coin be dated BC, as the event has not even happened (Era of Christ).

2. Dates where not used in earlier century coins , only had seal of the country or the king.

3. Barter system was used in earlier, and coins of precious metal used based on weight.
