Best Answer

Anno Domini is the Latin term for AD, which means "in the year of our Lord." If it was to mean 'After Death' as in Jesus Christ's death, there would be about 33 years that wouldn't be BC or AD.

Science has taken religion out of historical dating and is now using BCE (Before Common Era) and CE (Common Era) for BC and AD respectively.
