Anno Lucis is a dating system used in Freemasonry ceremonial or commemorative proceedings. It adds 4,000 years to the current Anno Domini calendar year and appends Anno Lucis (“Year of Light”) to the Gregorian calendar year. It is similar to Anno Mundi.

For example, 2015 AD is 6015 AL.[1] This calendar era, which would designate 4,001 BC as ‘year zero’, was adopted in the 18th century (58th century AL) as a simplification of the Anno Mundi era dating system used in the Hebrew calendar, and borrowing from other ideas of that time regarding the year of creation.

Perhaps Anno Lucis or "year of light" is not indicative of the year of creation, but of the year of the fall.  Freemasons worship Lucifer.  Lucifer is the "light bearer".  Light being the knowledge of good and evil.  This could represent the beginning of human kind.
