Also, either befell or are is the wrong tense.

comment Why use BCE/CE instead of BC/AD?
I am not a Christian, but I don't care about using Christian terminology to refer to a date based purely on a Christian myth. If we were using a Japanese calendar, I'd be fine using Japanese terminology to refer to it. BCE/CE seems like a hypercorrection to me.
