Not sure how I started, just know that when I came across it I liked it. It just seemed more rational, representative and useful when dealing with historical dates. Also, as quite an proponent atheist, I like the idea of moving the calendar away from its religious origins. I toyed with the idea of using the Hanke-Henry calendar as well, but although acknowledging that it makes more sense, it's much harder to put into practice because using it literally requires you to change days of the year accordingly (whereas with the Holocene, you're only adding a single number to the date)
Anyways, this is how I came across it, it does a much better explanation ==> https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=czgOWmtGVGs

Small side-note: Last New Year's I had a few too many and went on a crusade to correct everyone's calendar before the New Year's count down; now wherever I go people don't let me forget it.

Know it all atheists, always trying to force their faith and beliefs on everyone else.

I guess I must have missed all the times the religious folks here used the Hijri date, or the Luach Shana date, or the Badí date, to make a point to the unbelievers who only use the Gregorian calendar.

I don't know if this is sarcasm or not?
If not, might I throw in that atheist crusades involved lecturing some drunk students, whilst also being drunk, whereas religious crusades involves mass genocide/rape/oppression/slaughter etc...
Then again, if it was sarcasm, that was probably your point too, I suppose

pretty sure it was - not exactly sarcastic, but definitely a joke.

An easy way to recognise a robot in this comic is the blocky font they use to speak with.

Yes, indeed it was, some of both. No emoticons, but those get often get ignored anyway. Basically, people, whether they self identify as "religious" or "non-religious" are pretty much the same. The majority take after Lucy in a Peanuts strip who is explaining to Linus what a good evangelist she is. "You know that boy who sits behind me in class? I convinced him my religion is better than his." "How did you do that," Linus asks? "I hit him over the head with my lunchbox."

Way to many people, of all persuasions, are hitting people over the head to make their point, and it doesn't do a damn thing to persuade people to change their point of view. Assuming that is your goal, of course. Many people just want to tear someone else down, burn the bridges, take no prisoners, win at all costs. I fall into that trap myself on occasion, but I try not to as much as possible.

Fair point, defiantly. The whole theism-atheism paradigm didn't even appear that night though, its more to do with a more representative history and ease of calculation. Plus, you know, the drinking.
