... Chapter XXVIII The Fixed Year and Festival Calendars THE reformation of the Egyptian calendar, to be gathered, as I suggested in the last chapter, from the decree of Tanis, is not, however, the point to which reference is generally made in connection with the decree. The attempt recorded by it to get rid of the vague year is generally dwelt on. Although the system of reckoning which was based on the vague year had advantages with which it has not been sufficiently credited, undoubtedly it had its drawbacks. The tetramenes, with their special symbolism of flood-, seed-, and harvest-time, had apparently all meant each in turn; however the meanings of ...
26. The Reforming Of The Calendar, Part 2 Mars Ch.8 (Worlds in Collision) [Velikovsky] [Velikovsky Worlds in Collision]
... From "Worlds in Collision" © 1950 by Immanuel Velikovsky | FULL TEXT NOT AVAILABLE Contents The Reforming Of The Calendar In the middle of the eighth century the calendar then in use became obsolete. From the year -747 until the last of the catastrophes on the twenty-third of March, -687, the solar and lunar movements changed repeatedly, necessitating adjustments of the cal endar. Reforms undertaken during this time soon became obsolete in their turn, and were replaced by new ones; only after the last catastrophe of -687, when the present world order was established, did the calendar become permanent. Some of the clay tablets of Nineveh found in the royal library of that city1 contain ...

28. Making Moonshine with Hard Science [Books] [de Grazia books]
... From: The Burning of Troy, by Alfred De Grazia Home | Issue Contents CHAPTER SEVENTEEN Making Moonshine with Hard Science Professor Irving Michelson wrote a little piece of "hard science" (his term) called "Scientifically Speaking..." and subtitled "19-year Lunar Calendar Cycle: Accurate Adjustment to 365 1/4-Day Civil Calendar" [2 ]. A Greek named Meton of about 432 B.C . is credited with having discovered the 19-years repetitive coincidence of lunar month and tropical solar year. Michelson said that Meton's "discovery of the 19-year cycle presupposes precise knowledge of the length of the lunar month as well as of the solar (tropical) year of ...
29. Stonehenge - A Calendar? (Forum) [Journals] [Kronos]
... From: Kronos Vol. IX No. 1 (Fall 1983) Home | Issue Contents Forum Stonehenge - A Calendar?To the Editor of KRONOS: Alban Wall's "A Calendric View of Stonehenge" (KRONOS VIII:2 , pp. 35-46) promises a major breakthrough in understanding the purpose of Stonehenge. However. since the Sun marker completes a revolution around the Aubrey Circle in 13 x 28 = 364 days, one day a year must be skipped and an additional day must be skipped every four years to keep in step. Only with such an adjustment can one end up with exactly 247 revolutions in 19 years (pp. 37-38). Presumably, this ...
