How to Delete Area and or Length fields?

I want to preface my question by telling everyone who reads this that I have been a GIS pro since the 90's and have worked with ESRI products since that time, so here is my question...    I have a point feature class that has Area and Length fields that I can't delete (I'm aware that some fields can't be deleted).  It doesn't make sense to me why a point feature class would need area and length fields.  Is there a way I can delete them other than creating a new layer and loading my data into it excluding the area and length fields?  This feature class is in a 10.3.1 Enterprise Geodatabase and I am connected to it using the sa account from SQL Server.

 

Thanks!
