Yes, it is "common era," which reinforces John's point -- common to
what?  On what grounds?  It's still pinned to what was thought of at
one point as the birth year of Christ, so Christ is the basis of the
"common era."  At least BC explicitly pins the division to Christ
without requiring an implicit identification with Christ.
