THE NEW EARTH CALENDAR

A perpetual calendar for the year 2001……and all years to follow

For the last couple thousand years, we have been using a calendar that is anything but logical and convenient. It began with the Julian calendar which was modified in 1582 by Pope Gregory XIII, and is called the Gregorian calendar. The difficulties are caused by the fact that our orbit around the sun takes 365+ days and the changing length of a month, varying from 28 to 31 days.

Because a month can begin on any day of the week, we have twenty eight different monthly calendars. When combined, we end up with a new calendar each year with each date on a different weekday than in the previous year.

This is an unnecessary complication

The New Earth Calendar is a reform proposal to simplify the Gregorian calendar we now use. Consider a system with just
one monthly calendar, rather than the 28 we currently use. It would provide an easy solution to the many problems that have been perpetuated for more than 2000 years. Each month, each quarter and each year would have an equal number of days which makes for simple comparisons to other periods of time. Because each year begins on a Monday, the dates within a year never rotate between weekdays. Sound simple? Click here to learn more about it.
