i.e. that 12:44 am is not an official way of viewing that time under a 12 hour clock.

Good luck, as you are wrong!!! :D

Bob, I was aware after your initial post, that I was wrong :oops: and that what you were saying agreed with wiki etc etc, what i was trying to ascertain was why :-k It just didn't seem to make any sense when other measurements of time start at 0 (years etc). Just shows that you can learn sumfink new every day (spellins on the agenda today :lol: )

:D
Would absolutely agree with learning something everyday Statts... :D

The year one is strange as well... While, in most cases, reference to years would start at 0, I am not sure in the old (now apparently no longer used :( - AD/BC) system that there was a year zero.

But I am happy to be corrected if that is a misapprehension on my part.. :D

Bob

Creationists say only a week. Busy one at that lol

I dont think Bon Scott from AD/BC would have worried what year it was back then.

Better ask mat80, he will remember :-"

Another thing came to mind whilst dealing with silly subjects :-k

If am stands for BEFORE MIDDAY, why is 3am not 09:00 or 3 hrs before midday :confused:

"

Better ask mat80, he will remember :-" The simple answer Statts, thinking back on my childhood years \:D/ .
There was NOT a year zero, within the context of your query. Thus, BC1 = (IN/During) the year preceding the birth of Christ. AD1 = (IN/During) the year immediately following the birth of Christ.

Another thing came to mind whilst dealing with silly subjects :-k .If am stands for BEFORE MIDDAY, why is 3am not 09:00 or 3 hrs before midday :confused:
am/pm: Your premise is at fault and also, within this sentence there appears some contradiction, (changing from referring to 3am being the same as 0900HRS is patently incorrect). Thus 3am = 3 hours after MIDNIGHT & 3pm = 3 hours after MIDDAY; in then referring to 0900hrs you have changed the topic from am/pm to the 24hr time reference. :-"
Inevitably, my post will bring forth a long winded, computer researched dissertation, from the Forum's 'Fount of All Knowledge" proving to HIS satisfaction, my views are absolute rubbish. I will not be replying since, to paraphrase Rhett Butler: "I simply don't give a damn, my dear!" ;) :D :lol: \:D/

Mat, we already agreed the latin for am/pm .... AM stands for Ante Meridiem (or before midday), and PM stands for Post Meridiem (or after midday), so any reference to a time being after midnight is nothing but a red herring (or blue mackeral) [-X

I only used the 24 hrs clock to highlight the difference between what we call 3 am and what should actually be 3 am (3 BEFORE MIDDAY) do try to keep up :lol:

Actually Wazza, , to be correct, using THAT time frame, is as follows:
MBC= Mat before birth of Christ. MDC= Mat during the time of Christ. MAC= Mat after the death of Christ. As for the imminent future :( : ADM= After the death of Mat.

Mat, take it as read (and even verified on wiki :-" ) that they are the translations of am & pm :lol:

As for keeping up, I (seem to have lots of those problems myself :lol: especially in the 59 mins after midnight whatever they are called 8-[ )

[-X :( :oops:

- Don't know anything about those hours to which you refer. Obviously I have more commonsense, (if not more academic nonce :-s ), than you; I am always in bed no later than one hour before midnight - 11pm- or, put another way, before 11 hours after midday - which, put even another way before 2300hrs. Hell, after getting addicted to this world changing discussion by the UM intellects, henceforth my life will be spent in total confusion, never knowing what time of the day, (or should that be night :? ), it is.
Mercifully, I can always turn for help to our intellectually superior fellow member, Khun Paul, who has clearly demonstrated, by his perceptive contribution, that he fully realizes how deeply serious & concerned we other contributors to this thread are about this problem. :-" ;) :roll: :lol:

Enough now this topic, Statts, less we cause Khun Paul further unnecessary distress [-X . Pray do not hesitate to inform us, should you be beset by any other problems blighting you life and with regard to which, you feel in need of our invaluable assistance/advice. :D
