The speed of light documented in 3,000 year old Vedic texts has been proven ...


Rubbish.

754 b.c.
    Foundation of City of Rome
    15 year indiction: Roman tax cycle



539 b.c.
    Persian Empire
    1 yz (yazdegirdi) = 12 months of 30 days
    first quarter moon called "Her" and all-healing


At this point we have the first true 360 day year, but who knows how ceremonial it was, and just look at how recent.

Dear Harte, did you read the paper in my link?

The proof is right there in that paper - all the maths add up to the exact speed of light, care to disprove it?

Approximately. Well . . . very approximately; it's pretty good actually. Sorry I'm gushing. It's the Greeks. Euclid's geometry had something to do with the precision of this observation. The method remains accurate enough to follow with most existing civic calendars.

At this point: I suppose I should speak to the overarching thesis of calendars, and the history of their maths. It seems, to me, that every new calendar comes with upheavals and power occupying a new area. For a while. There is a preponderance of sadness that surrounds the ancient astronomers and their fixation with eternal flames. But in each case, where the calendar is better it takes a step in record keeping and agreed upon dating styles.

I begin to wonder. As these calendars progress, will I see a trend that may foreshadow the future? Each new calendar system seems to stand in contrast to some ever greater civilization.

The author takes liberties with his units, as well as the (single!) phrase from the Rig Veda.
There is no proof in that paper.

Would you care to prove it yourself?

Sure, Harte. Will you just first tell me which unit the author - according to yourself - is taking liberties with, so I know where to start that is.

19 tropical years = 6,939.602 days.
235 lunar phases = 6,939.688 days
(Metonic period by definition).

The Metonic cycle's error is, therefore, one full day every 219 years, or 12.4 parts per million.

wiki / Metonic cycle

A mechanical computation of the cycle is built into the Antikythera mechanism.


So just shy of seven thousand days.

Boy, you're just dead set on everything being somehow connected to nautical miles, aren't you? So which is it, the vedic zodiac or the pyramids?

If it was up to me, I'd start by somehow showing that one angula is NOT 17.6 mm, but must be 16.76 mm as your linked paper insists.
One angula is the width of the widest part of a finger, as a starting place for you.

From there you can move on to show exactly why one Dhanusha CANNOT be equal to 108 angulas as historians claim, but MUST be equal to 96 of your "new" angulas, each of which a about a millimeter shorter than the consensus says.

I would do more for you, but my son is running me off the computer now. I'm confident you have enough info though.
