A calendar for all denominations

Miscellaneous TheRedPyro August 7, 2016 0 0
The calendar, which in many parts of the world, and certainly used in the business world, has its roots in the Roman / Christian culture. It is the Gregorian calendar that builds on the Julian calendar was established by Julius Caesar in 45 v. Chr. Is not it time for a calendar for all denominations? A calendar that is based on the well 365 and a quarter days the sun revolves around the earth.

A calendar that starts every year on Sunday

Perhaps you have wondered that once, why wander the days of the week throughout the year so messy? Especially around Christmas is sometimes annoying. One year exactly it falls on a weekend and you get the feeling that a few days you will be picked off, another year you're stuck with four so-called holidays. That is largely due to cultural traditions, but also because our time is based on three astronomical phenomena:
  • The orbit around the Sun in 365.24 days
  • The rotation of the moon around the Earth in 29.53 days
  • The rotation of the earth on its own axis, 24 hours

  • I will not bore you with the details of the astronomy of these three phenomena. These changes have been too much written. I'm just wondering if it is possible to create a calendar that takes into account only these three phenomena and allows us to use the same calendar every year. Every year, looks the same, January 1 always falls on Sunday. The only question is how to solve the problem of the remaining day in an ordinary year and the remaining two days in a leap year. Such a problem I do not have to solve, which is already done.

    The world calendar, conceived and shot

    India did in 1956 in a United Nations commission a proposal to switch to an intercultural calendar, called the World Calendar. This calendar was designed in 1930 by mrs. Elisabeth Achelis. She founded a special organization on the World Calendar Association. Mrs. Achelis solved the problem of the remaining days by a year and always one in a leap year two holidays to insert. Note: international feestdagen.Tot World War II could count its proposal lot of support and sympathy. Especially among economists this calendar had many advocates. But leaders of major religious group agitating violently against this calendar. They would prefer to decide which day of the year is a holiday or rest day. While the charm of this calendar is correct that the calendar itself nothing to do with religion and everyone is free to plan his holidays there.
    But the outbreak of the Second World War, the idea totally into decline.

    How does this calendar exactly?

    • The quarters are mutually equal, every 91 days, 13 weeks and 3 months.
    • The four quarters have the same structure with the same sequence of 31, 30 and 30 days.
    • Each month has 26 days and always four or five Sundays.
    • Every year begins on Sunday, January 1st, the first day is always Monday, January 2nd.
    • Each quarter starts on a Sunday and ends on a Saturday.
    • The perpetual calendar is made throughout the year to make the 364ste day end on Saturday December 30th. Then there is an extra day which is equivalent to December 31st. This is Day, a holiday for everyone.
    • Leap day is similarly added to the month of June. This is also a holiday for the whole world.

    There are two "extrakalendriale" Days World Day and Leap. On December 31 we celebrate the Earth a round again made the sun. Very neutral. Every four years there is a leap year. Then we celebrate Leap and we do it fine in summer. The United Nations can these holidays also make theme days during which attention can be paid to issues of global importance such as peace, Food, Clean Water, the position of children, the environment etc. Another major advantage is that Christmas Day, December 25, always falls on a Monday.

    Fierce resistance

    In 1955 were mainly the United States modicus against this calendar. Religious leaders with great political power were violently objected to the fact that once a year the weekly rhythm was disrupted and in leap years even twice. This is against the will of God that the week has once and for all set to seven days.
    However, the very fact that the Gregorian calendar has a strong western and religious accent, in a globalized world would be an argument for the introduction of a world calendar.
    In 1920 'ruled' the Western world directly and indirectly, nearly almost 50% of the inhabitants of the Earth, in 2010 this will be only 11.5%. Introduction of a neutral calendar where the business will have much benefit in Global Village is therefore not a bad idea at all. Moreover the World Calelendar Association still exists and seeks to introduce this calendar in 2012.
