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.

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.
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.
