According to the Hebrew calendar the current year is 5782.

Does it really matter what year it is?
All our measurements of time are imaginary lines we put in place.
Years, months, days, hours, seconds of the very distant past.
What’s the point really.....
Knowing the answer and $2.00.....coffee please

Ahhh!

I see you now.

Recorded history is incomplete data dude and is used to write a narrative that ‘fits best’

You can date things by relativity but you can also ignore things or interpret, ie. cave art and the squatting man, data to sell your doctrine.

In this sense there is no Day zero as such.

There is however a ‘purple dawn of creation’ and records on stone that corroborate with each other to direct our attention to earlier observations.

Some of these draw us to various global archetypes and let us speculate on events with considerable circumstantial evidential support.

Check out thunderbolts of the Gods.



Anywho, if your line of questioning is heading the way I suspect then I hope that video helps to fire some neurons. It lit me up when I first watched.

Interesting that the video fit so well, it ties up a few loose ends, surprisingly.

Einstein … there was always something about him that wasn’t quite right. Some say he was a fraud.



Thank you Dalamax for an interesting informative and highly important post!

Even more fun when one realizes there was no "Year Aught" (Year 0). Goes from 1 BC to 1 AD in the Anno Domini calendar.

Cheers

Great thread idea S&F the planet is over 4 billion years old and we live in the year 2000.... something is way off...the whole world uses a calendar based off Jesus Christ, whom may not have even existed.

ETA: everyone in the thread seems to be on European tunnel vision with keeping time. I'd like to direct the readers to Polynesia, South America, North American Indigenous People, Africa, the Middle East, Asia, and Aborigines....all of them have ANCIENT history...and I'm sure have fascinating philosophies and systems of time to discuss on here.

Quite right. In effect, "Nought" was a point in time rather than a year, as I try to explain to people.
"1 B.C." means the twelve months preceding the notional moment when Christ was born (midnight on the 31st of December, for calendar purposes).
"A.D. 1" means the twelve months following that event.

For the same reason, for us pedants, the second millenium came to a close at the end of the year 2000, not at the beginning.

Well I've mentioned Mayans, Egyptians and Semites, South America, Africa and Middle East.
It's a euro-centric/christian calendar we're using now so obviously we're referring to that.

It's 4719 in China, now we got Asia too.
What else do you want to bitch about, from the high horse of zero information-contribution?

Here’s an extrapolation on the last video.

This one delves a little deeper into archetypes and how they can be used to interpret mythology and present to us a narrative from our ancestors.

Hope you enjoy.

I found this. The Yoruba calendar


The traditional Yoruba calendar (Kọ́jọ́dá) has a 4-day week and 91 weeks in a year. The Yoruba year spans from 3 June of a Gregorian calendar year to 2 June of the following year. According to the calendar developed by Remi-Niyi Alaran, the Gregorian year 2021 AD is the 10,063rd year of Yoruba records of time.With the British colonial and European cultural invasions, came the need to reconcile with the Gregorian calendar: Yoruba people also measure time in seven days a week and 52 weeks a year.

sometimes i just have a problem with the fact that BC is much guesework and AD seems for the most part...very well written.



No. Historians track time by putting events in order and working backward, plus using those events as reference markers along the timeline.

Let's say historians work it out (through the order of events and relative to other known events) that a certain 'Event X' occurred 2500 years ago. You can subtract the current year 2021 from 2500 and get the answer that Event X happened circa 479 BC (or more precisely 478 BC, because there was no year 0 to account for in the math).
