Professor Veronis' proof that the new millennium began on January 1, 2000, is wrong. The new millennium will begin on January l, 2001.Veronis's error stems from an apparent confusion of intervals and points on the number line. On the temporal number line, periods such as years, centuries, and millennia are intervals; birth dates are points.
