False. Both the new century and the new millennium began on 1 Jan 2001. The reason is: there was no year 0 (zero); therefore, the 100th and final year of the the First Century was year 100. Following that, 200 was the final year of the Second Century, 300 was the final year of the Third Century, and so on. 1000 was the final year of the millennium. Many people want to simplify the accounting and put 2000 with the new century and millennium because it starts with a "2," and nothing important is harmed by this error, but it is an error.

Why is the statement 'This sentence is false' so confusing?

In the logical sense, sentences must be either true or false and not both. "This sentence is false" cannot be true because that would mean that it is false, and it cannot be both. It also cannot be false because that would mean that it is true, and it cannot be both. Therefore, if it is true or false, then it is both true and false. Therefore it is either neither true nor false or both true and false; therefore, in the logical sense, it is not a sentence. However, it says it is a sentence; therefore, it is lying; therefore, it is false.
