The Church disagees. 1BC was followed by 1AD. There was no 0BC/8AD inbetween.

This has been recognized by historicans for decennies, maybe centuries. Today, it is also recognized by all (serious) developers of computer software handling historic data, hereunder genealogical information.

Enjoy it or hate it - your choice! In our office building, our elevator goes directly from floor 1 to floor -1. For our mental comfort, we declared that there is in fact a floor 0 inbetween them, but it is virtual. And since it is virtual, the elevator operating in real space cannot make a stop in virtual space - that is why it skips directly from 1 to -1.

We have learned to live with it. Similarly, you will have to learn with years skipping directly from -1 to 1 without a stop at 0.
