I was just thinking about something like this earlier today, but it had more to do with the calendar. Over the course of a thousand years or since we
began the calendar that we recognize today, how much have the seasons shifted from when we started to now?
For instance, take leap year. Every four years we have to add an extra day to our calendar to stay on the right track, and thats because we actually
have an extra 1/4 day throuhgout the year, but surely that quarter isnt exact, what if its more like 7 hours 30 minutes a year that we actually have
(instead of the even 6 hours for that 1/4 day), how would that tiny bit of time over the course of 2000 years effect how our seasons line up with the
dates we assign for each particular season?
At 365 days and 24 hours per day we come up with 8760 hours in year, plus 6 hours that we account for every 4th year, so really every year we have
8766 hours, and what I am asking is, what if thats really somewhere between 6.1 hours and like 9 hours? Its too small to maybe have been thought to
make a difference, and theres no real way to account for it, so how could it possibly effect the timing of our seasons as it should line up on our
Just think if theres really 8767 hours in 1 year as an example, every 24 years we are losing one day, over 2000 years thats about 83 days. So can
anyone explain this to me, has this been addressed?
