Rob,

I don't see your point at all. No where in Jorge's note does he start a
religious debate. I believe he just misunderstood the application of *CYMD
which as put in to support the existing CL date format of CYYMMDD. Then
later, IBM added addition centuries to that format because it mathematically
fit.
