What?

Wouldn't it be time to consider adapting the way we count our years more accordingly to the current state of knowledge and development of global society? Within this scope, why not use something common for all mankind, like our own evolutionairy age?

Leonardo di ser Piero da Vinci was an Italian painter, sculptor, architect, musician, mathematician, engineer, inventor, anatomist, geologist, cartographer, botanist, and writer. He is widely considered to be one of the greatest painters of all time and perhaps the most diversely talented person ever to have lived. His genius, perhaps more than that of any other figure, epitomized the Renaissance humanist ideal. Leonardo has often been described as the archetype of the Renaissance Man, a man of "unquenchable curiosity" and "feverishly inventive imagination".

The printing press was an important step towards sharing, and thus, the democratization of knowledge. Within 50 or 60 years of the invention of the printing press, the entire classical canon had been reprinted and widely promulgated throughout Europe.

Now that more people had access to knowledge both new and old, more people could discuss these works.

Higgs Boson discovered

On 4 July 2012, the ATLAS and CMS experiments at CERN's Large Hadron Collider announced they had each observed a new particle in the mass region around 126 GeV. This particle is consistent with the Higgs boson but it will take further work to determine whether or not it is the Higgs boson predicted by the Standard Model. The Higgs boson, as proposed within the Standard Model, is the simplest manifestation of the Brout-Englert-Higgs mechanism. Other types of Higgs bosons are predicted by other theories that go beyond the Standard Model.

What is the connection between Angkor Wat in the Jungle of Cambodia, the Pyramids in the middle of Egyptian desert and megalithic monuments on Easter Island and Micronesia? What is the under water mystery in Japan, the last time it above water was 10,000 years ago? Our ancestors are highly intelligent people, thousand years ago they precisely predicted the solar eclipse over Mexico in 1991.

Aristarchus of Samos

Aristarchus of Samos (/ˌærəˈstɑrkəs/; Greek: Ἀρίσταρχος Aristarkhos; c. 310 – c. 230 BC) was an ancient Greek astronomer and mathematician who presented the first known model that placed the Sun at the center of the known universe with the Earth revolving around it (see Solar system).

He was influenced by Philolaus of Croton, but he identified the "central fire" with the Sun, and put the other planets in their correct order of distance around the Sun.[1] His astronomical ideas were often rejected in favor of the geocentric theories of Aristotle and Ptolemy.

(Wrong year due to "BC" date format, that could be solved by using Anno Hominis.)

Albert Einstein teaches us about relativity, where Space and Time are actually one and the same, while proposing that Mass and Energy are interchangeable too, through the relation E=mc2.
Additionally he provides evidence that matter is composed of atoms and lays the foundations of quantum mechanics.
Like Nikola Tesla, Einstein was a humanist and opposed to war as well.
