Default This \"Millennium doesn\'t start until 2001\" BS

I don't get the BS that the Millennium starts at 2,001. (makes me think of a movie)
Okay, somewhere it'll have to start at zero, right? And when did AD start? At zero. And zero was the beginning, correct? You go 1,000 years later and it's 1,000 AD. You go another 1,000 years later and it'll be 2,000 AD. And 2,000 AD will be the start, right? So why is it that people are saying that the Millennium starts at 2,001 AD?

The very first year was year 1. They didn't start counting dates as 1-1-00. The first day of the first year was 1-1-01. By that theory, we will soon be completing year #1,999, and just starting the 2,000th year.

I guess if you really get down to it, all anyone is celebrating is the fact that the calender was created ~2000 years ago. Since man has been around far longer, what's the point of the millenium?

Perhaps the mighty finger of judgement has pointed upon religion.

Wingz is right. But I figure, why spoil everyone's fun. What good will it do?
