ZERO as neither positive nor negative?


Do mathematicians understand ZERO as neither positive nor negative?

"0 is the integer immediately preceding 1.
Zero is an even number, because it is divisible by 2.
0 is neither positive nor negative."

"In the BC calendar era, the year 1 BC is the first year before AD 1; no room is reserved for a year zero. By contrast, in astronomical year numbering, the year 1 BC is numbered 0, the year 2 BC is numbered −1, and so on."

Is there hypocrisy with current mathematicians regarding 'zero'?

Hypocrisy is the practice of claiming to have moral standards or beliefs to which one's own behavior does not conform; pretense.

Additional Details

The western education system has formatted the way you think. It is a fact that concepts like zero and infinity are recently imported to west and western mathematicians are still trying to learn these concepts, but too proud to admit so. Simply, they do not know what they are doing in mathematics!
