Nice try, but May is actually named after a Greek god, Maia. The year is arbitrary - you could choose a different one, but why? Just to make a point? Might as well go with what everyone else is using.

No, I didn't talk about the month's name or whatever it is. It's just about the calendar system

Alex just told the submission date (it's assumed that the submission date is that day on the comic)

I don't get it...

Actually Arthur is just testing Alex what is his preference of calendar system and apparently Alex is using the Gregorian (AD) system

I'll explain it (and many people ask for this one XD). Arthur wanted to test Alex if he's a 'real' atheist or not, so he asked Alex what date it was. And Alex was using Anno Domini (literally "God's year")  system. Arthur thought that if he still uses AD system, he isn't a 'real' atheist

I already know that Christ's birth-date was 4 years off, and that 12-25 is -or was- the Winter Solctise. It has drifted 4 days since that date was set up.

At least the year does NOT set a date for the creation of the world.

Indeed
Actually the main point is about the calendar system, not the freaking exact history behind it

But the exact history is what makes the calendar important! :-)

If you are an atheist, it makes sense to treat Jesus as a historical figure, rather than a religious one, because clearly his life had an impact just like any other notable person. Figuring out exactly when Jesus was born has probably taken enough time for several human lives.

Exactly when Christ atoned for man, on the cross seems more important than when he was born. The year, the month, the day were somehow blurred...

It may not have really happened...

Maybe it's because Alex by using the traditional dating system unconsciously acknowledges the birth of Christ as 2013 years ago.(some scribe was a bit off, but ...)

When France went totally atheist and started destroying all religion back around 1793, it reset the date to 1 and renamed all the months and even set up a 10-day week. A 10-day week did NOT mesh with human bio-rhythms and this helped unravel the entire new system.

There was also the incredible brutality dealt to adherents of the old ways. By Napoleon's time, all this Thermidor etc., had gone to the ash-pile meant for the old religions.
