The common timeline system used by scientists to avoid religious arguments. Before, B.C. was commonly used (Before Christ) and B.C.E. (Before Common Era) was found to be less controversial. The timeline is the same as B.C, but just with a different name.

BC is referred to as before Jesus Christ was supposedly born (Before christ), and AD (Anno domini) is referred to the years since Jesus Christ was supposedly born.

I think you mean A.D and B.C. A.D stands for Anno Domini in Latin. B.C. stands for before death.(of christ)

14 bce is after 9 bce 2000 bce is before 200 bce the answer is unknown Which is correct?

2000 BCE is before 200 BCE is the correct answer. A timeline works like so: the "I" represents the birth of Christ, which is the event which separates BCE and CE. From the "I" forward is where we are now. The numbers increase 0 to 2011. From the "I" backwards the number decreases 0 to (whenever the world began). Therefore 2000 BC come before 200BC.
