If they had to "add" five days at the end of the year it was obviously 5 days shorter than the current year. Just Google Egyptian calendar 360 days
and see what you come up with.
I've got a much, much better idea.
Let's talk about Archaeoastronomy
The ancients built monuments and celestial observatories. Many going back MORE than 3600 years. Allowing for natural progression of the Earth's axis,
these ancient observatories still work.
How about the Mayans
? They existed as far back as 2000 BC.
If Nibiru is close and going to be here soon, subtract 3600 from 2012 and you get 1588 BC. Well within the Mayan's existence.
No mention of Nibiru there. Better yet, they made a calender that is a long count. It counts days. Which of course as we all know ends it's cycle
this year. That clock hasn't changed.
Again, you are IGNORING the physics of the situation. A 15 Jupiter mass object is NOT going to the Earth just slightly so that our calender is 5 days
longer or shorter (and again, the Egyptians had a 365 day calender with a year some times being a "wandering" year. Hrmmm. Just like our Leap Year.
It would MASSIVELY affect our (and other planet's) orbit, inclination, eccentricity, and periods. Our planet is the way it is because of the stable
orbit is has with a very, very small eccentricity.
You can ignore the physics all you want. Which I find extremely strange coming from a person that claims
to have several degrees in science
(which you still haven't told anyone what fields they are in after you made that claim and were asked). But the physics do not lie.
