Note that the RoE world is not our own, but rather one that is mostly similar except it takes place in a universe where our solar system is populated by life forms other than Humans. Humanity and Earth grew up rather the same as ours, but it's timeline completely diverged from ours when Humanity entered the space race, running into and discovering alien life. However, Humans were visited by Advanced alien life in the ancient past; the Shivan and Verga'an race, that influenced change and progress on Humans. Ancient humans perceived them to be gods of some kind, due to their advanced technology. The Origins of the universe are somewhat different than our own as well, with the universe's "big bang" being a planned creation of the universe by the architects/gods of the universe; the Celestials.
In conclusion; while RoE takes place in the future, it is not our future.
In this universe, time is measured in two states:
B.H. = Before Humanity
C.E. = Century Era.
A century era is a common form of time measurement (Usually 1 full Earth year) that is universally accepted across the solar system, invented by Human beings sometime in after early civilization was established on Earth.
Please note; that Before Humanity does not necessarily mark the point before Humans, but rather when Humanity became civilized enough to start recording their history in a modern way (writing, with archives and books) and when the first Century era was marked and created by Humans.
