When the big hand says Thirteen Moon Calendar

by Judi McLeod, Canadafreepress.com

August 27, 2004

The United Nations, which has a finger in every global pie, and ambitions to take over the World Internet, is inching its way towards calendar reform.

Long on lofty words and windy clauses, the official UN description for calendar reform is, "Calendar Reform and the Future of Civilization" (CRFC).

Ostensibly, the UN rejected considering calendar reform in 1995 as part of its 50th anniversary. Within four years, UN officials were passing calendar duty over to lifetime activist for peace, Dr. José Argüelles, an originator of Earth Day.

Dr. Arguelles’ World Summit on Peace and Time was convened on June 22-27, 1999 at the UN-owned University for Peace, in Costa Rica.

Why is the UN itching to change the method by which the world tells time?

It’s the Gregorian Calendar. Having replaced the Julian Calendar, the Gregorian was instituted by papal decree in the year AD 1582 and adopted by virtually all nations as the common world standard.

Accepted by virtually all nations notwithstanding, the Gregorian Calendar is irksome to New Agers because the whole world marks time based on the Birth of Jesus Christ. And as far as the occultist UN is concerned, that will never do.

So why not break and fix it?

If the concept of throwing the Gregorian Calendar out to replace it with the World Thirteen Moon 28-day Calendar of Peace isn’t ludicrous enough, calendar challengers say they are basing their reform on "common sense".

"By rational discourse and common sense, it has been determined that the Gregorian Calendar does not represent a true or accurate standard of measure or belong to any systematic science of time, and hence, is worthy of reform," states a CRFC resolution from the World Summit on Peace and Time.

The usual suspects were on hand when more than one hundred "followers of the World Thirteen Calendar Change Peace Movement" convened at the Costa Rican summit.

Letters of acknowledgement were sent to the summit on behalf of UN Secretary-General, Kofi Annan; Secretary-General of UNESCO, Federico Mayor Zaragoza; His Holiness, the Dalai Lama; and by Jonathan Granoff of the Lawyers Alliance for World Security.

Dr. Rodrigo Carazo, former President of Costa Rica and founder of the University gave the opening address for Peace. In attendance with Dr. Carazo was Gerardo Bidowski, acting Rector and representative of the then newly appointed President of the University for Peace, Maurice Strong.

Seven commissions were set up during a four-day period and participating was former UN assistant Secretary-General Robert Muller, now UP chancellor, who gave a guided tour of the archeology and history o f the site of the University of Peace which was concluded by a walk to his nearby residence.

The Thirteen Moon "Natural Time" Calendar is touted as "a universal application of the mathematics and cosmology of the Mayan calendar as deciphered by Dr. Jose Arguelles. Ph.D., and presents a simple yet so profound opportunity to shift our everyday consciousness."

Described on his Internet home page as "both a visionary and a prophet", Dr. Arguelles bestowed upon himself the pagan name of, "Valum Votan". In a New Age magazine interview, he said it was "not until after he experimented with LSD that he realized he was a visionary."

The final goal is to change the calendar from its present "artificial" 12-month year to a more "natural" 13-month year that more closely parallels the lunar and biological cycles.

The results and declarations from the World Summit on Peace and Time have been submitted to the General Assembly of the UN.

Wild and weird as it may sound, the Thirteen Moon Natural Time Peace Calendar could replace the Gregorian Calendar, courtesy of future UN resolution.

It is, after all, Canadian Maurice Strong and former Soviet President Mikhail Gorbachev who, under the auspices of the UN, are working on an agenda to replace the Ten Commandments with the Earth Charter.

I've thought there should be a 13 month calendar ever since grade school when I realized it was a much better and more uniform system. You could have 13 completely uniform lunar months with 1 extra day in the year. Perfect.

Well HECK YEA! It is about time. This will be great news to the coven when we sacrifice our next virgin. Using Microsoft's calender conversion for the damned is always so difficult.(Add a day for the two headed ram- subtract two for the earth mother- Unless it is the month of the dark lord in which case it is three) I'll just clear a space on my shelf of crystals and put the calender there.
Now if we can get the calender changed then maybe we can move on to stamping out that whole Christianity thing and bring back the earth spirits. Sacrificing goats and dancing around stones used to be such a community event.

You just want to come up beside them, smack them on the side of the head and say "Knock it off". Didn't these people have parents?

Sorry UN but by the fact that this calendar has now been used for nearly 500 YEARS, it is ACCURATE. There is no need to link it to some cycle of nature or science. It has worked for nearly 5 centuries, it is still working, and will continue to work for at least a few more centuries, don't ya think?

Why not tell us the REAL reason, UN???? Would it be that you are anti-Christian????

Yes, and if each month begins on Sunday we could have Friday the 13th 13 times every year.

I think a 13-month calendar is a non-starter. A 12-month year can be divided evenly into halves, thirds, and quarters...a 13-month year cannot be divided into any smaller units without splitting months.

So where do you put the one extra day?

But I agree with you. And how did the ancients miss this. I mean the only thing they had to tell the passage of days,weeks and months was the moon. How come they didn't realize that 13 months of four weeks each made a year? How could they miss that??

It funny that the British Navy DID use the 13 month calendar at sea because it made so much sense.

On Star Trek it makes sense - hundreds of species will have hundreds of calendars and unless Earth's conquering planets - in Star Trek, we aren't - we can't just make them adopt ours.

What relation does an Earth-year have to a year on Vulcan, say?

I'm in favor of calendar reform.

It's my prime example of how STUPID we are.

Example: An Octopus has eight tentacles.
. . . . . An Octagon has eight sides or angles.

. . . . . And October is the tenth month.

Same thing for September, October, November, and December (Decimal System -- Twelfth Month!!!). All the months which refer to numbers refer to the wrong numbers ... and it's been that way for two thousand years!

We're the premier species on this planet, right? Well, it's a very small planet!!!



P.S. 2006 would be a good year to institute calendar reform. It starts on a Sunday.

First, they got it wrong - the calander should be based on the metric system, somehow.

Second, I wonder what the names of these new months will be? Can only guess that one of them will be Annan-uary.

Thrid, just another step towards one world government - wonder who would set the holidays? Wonder what they would be?

Not quite 2000 years. Part of the Gregorian reform of 1582 was to move the beginning of the new year from March 25 (the Feast of the Annunciation) to January 1. In the Julian calendar September was indeed the seventh month after the beginning of the New Year, and so forth. March was the first (and last) month; April the second, and so on.

The Julian system was premised on the belief that the world was created on the same day that Jesus was conceived and the same day on which He was later Crucified.

"...the calander should be based on the metric system, somehow."

Babylonians figured out that twelve worked better. More divisors, as mentioned above.

They also gave us the sixty minute hour, and 360 degrees in a circle. That's part of the reason we work with a year of nearly 360 -- (365.25)

The day has 1440 minutes of sixty seconds. I don't think we'd want to change the length of the minute, but we could use hours of 144 minutes.

Essentially correct. The Gregorian calendar also took into account a four-hundred year adjustment to the leap year.

It's pretty accurate, considering.

There was a beautiful theological logic underlying the March 25 (essentially Vernal Equinox) New Year; Creation, the creation of the New Adam, and Christ's sacrifice for Adam's sin all converging on the same day, and all at the beginning of the annual cycle of life in the Northern Hemisphere.

Maybe the "April fools" who clung to the Julian calendar were wiser after all!

Well, that's just a great idea. But I spent over a minute thinking about it, and have come up with the real solution - smartly decouple the length of a day from that old school "one planet turn" thing. My day lengths would continueally adjust with the amount of daylight (longer in the summer, shorter in the winter). With existing watch/chip technology this could easily be iomplemented.
Once this decoupling is done, the skids are greased.

In fact, I would go one step farther and institute "global time" - whereby it's 10:10:10 everywhere in the world at the same time.

I will be submitting my solution to the U.N. tomorrow for humble consideration. One person can make a difference (and in this case, just in time).
