nd that’s just the beginning, because there is even more mathematical science that exists everywhere within ancient stories.
Take this claim in particular. The ancients did not know that light had a speed. The ancients had geocentric universes so to claim that their stories in any way tells us "The speed at which the earth traverses the Sun" is absurd.
These sorts of claims are typical numerology gibberish.
As an aside notice that the claim of "exactly" has become 2 different numbers.
Count 666 days before Dec 3, 2012 and then find out where your leaders were.

Regarding the riddle, one only needs to know what is written to of happened in circa 700 bc to solve that equation.
The 8th century BC was a period of great changes in civilizations. In Egypt, the 23rd and 24th dynasties led to rule from Nubia in the 25 Dynasty. The Neo-Assyrian Empire reaches the peak of its power, conquering the Kingdom of Israel as well as nearby countries.
The 8th century BC is conventionally taken as the beginning of Classical Antiquity, with the first Olympiad set at 776 BC
A historic solar eclipse is recorded in China, 780 BC
700 BC – 600 BC: Baudhayana Sulbasutra, an orally transmitted Vedic Sanskrit text on altar construction, contains the earliest extant verbal statement of the Pythagorean theorem, which was likely known to (but not stated by) Old Babylonians (1800 BC to 1600 BC).
You know I realize the point of these threads are to offer opinions in an orderly fashion, but I really don't see how your replies are anything more then gibberish yourself. Your just throwing together some fancy sentence structure without giving any actual answers to the posters mathematical equations, and just trying to contradict his posts. It actually looks like your just typing for the sake of typing up until this point.
What I would like to ask is how you can you even make the statement " The ancients did not know that light had a speed." There is no way that you could possibly know that today. In fact there is no way that you can make any statement about what the ancients knew, or what they did not know.
Most of the ancient Greeks, including the ubiquitous Aristotle, believed that the velocity of light was infinite; that is, that light would take 0 seconds to travel from one end of the universe to the other. Others disagreed. Empedocles (490-435 B.C.), for instance, believed that the speed of light was finite; that light took a certain amount of time to travel from one point to another.
An interesting argument in favor of the proposition that light takes no time to travel from one point to another was provided by Hero of Alexandria. Today we believe that sight involves reflection of light from an object and its absorption by the eye. But Hero, like most Greeks, believed that we see because the eye produces light. Now, Hero said, if I look skywards on a starry night, close my eyes for a while, then open them, I see the very distant stars instantly. It therefore must take the light from my eyes no time at all to travel to the faraway stars. Therefore, light travels at an infinite speed.
At one time it was thought that light travels with infinite speed—i.e., it is propagated instantaneously from its source to an observer. Olaus Rømer showed that it was finite, however, and in 1675 estimated its value from differences in the time of eclipse of certain of Jupiter's satellites when observed from different points in the earth's orbit.
In your reply to this post, please do tell me how you know exactly what the ancients knowledge base was concerning space, time, the solar system, distance, the sun, the universe, or even light itself. Thanks.
Third. Dec 3 and Dec 21 are separated by 18 days… And what’s interesting about that, if you take all the pyramids of Giza, and I asked you how many times you can add each group of three pyramids together, you get 666 which equals 18(days or Dec 21, 2012 just like the Mayans teach). Yet if I asked you how many pyramids you see/count the quick answer is 9. So now we can add 3, 9, and 18. When we do the math
3days*24hrs*60mins = 4,320(mins)*60(secs) = 259,200(secs)/360 = 720
9days*24hrs*60mins = 12,960(mins)*60(secs) = 777,600(secs)/360 = 2160
18days*24hrs*60mins = 25,920(mins)*60(secs) = 1,555,200(secs)/720 = 2160(the riddle)

By speeding up Earth's rotation, the magnitude 8.8 earthquake—the fifth strongest ever recorded, according to the USGS—should have shortened an Earth day by 1.26 millionths of a second, according to new computer-model calculations by geophysicist Richard Gross of NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory in California. For comparison, the same model estimated that the magnitude 9 Sumatra earthquake in December 2004 shortened the length of a day by 6.8 millionths of a second.
