Believe it or not, I actually heard this. It is too ridiculous to really address, but I would point out this would also prove we are a pagan nation because of our use of the days of the week and months of the year.

I also heard something like

I also heard something like the way they used to use the english version, "Year of our LORD" to write years back when the Constitution was written, therefore we're a Christian nation. Like, "1776 Year of our LORD".

that's why you tell them this:
"You use that days of the week, Monday, Tuesday... etc. right?

Well you know the names of the days come from the roman pantheon, you follow it, therefore you believe in the roman pantheon."

Actually, the days are a

Actually, the days are a combination of Roman Nordic and Pagan

Sunday: The Sun (general pagan)
Monday: The Moon (general pagan)
Tuesday: (forget exactly, but Nordic.)
Wednesday: Wodin's day (Nordic)
Thursday: Thor's day (Nordic)
Friday: Frigg's day (nordic)
Saturday: Saturn's day (Roman)

The Months are Roman - combination names of Roman Gods, emperors, and numbers.

We don't really use AD

We don't really use AD anymore. It's CE or Common Era. But it's still based on AD. PC bullshit.
