POPPA HOWARD QUESTIONS OUR DATE SYSTEM, , , OR
“HOW WAS JESUS BORN 4 YEARS BEFORE HE WAS BORN??!!”
Saved as: “Website-Our DATE SYSTEM.doc” (UPDATED: 1 November 2011)
IMPORTANT NOTE ADDED: 1 November 2011
See in particular at the end hereof, how the Calendar was drastically corrected mathematically by Pope Gregory 13th in 1582. So much so, in fact, that some people renamed it “The Gregorian Calendar” (Researched with amazing in-depth efficiency by Researcher / Authoress Mikhael Ross).
1: INTRODUCTION AND PROPHESIED DATES
Our ‘DATE SYSTEM’ is “up the Creek without a Paddle” as they say. It is full of inconsistencies and anomalies. At the least it is one year ‘out’ and, at the most, maybe as much as seven years out.!!!
Any dates given in “Prophesies” therefore are as reliable as those given by a drunken Gypsy Fortune Teller.
Also, according to our ‘Wonderful Calendar’, Jesus was born in 4 B.C. (namely, 4 years before he was born!!)
How can I say all this? Read on and weep my dears!!
2: THE JULIAN CALENDAR
Our current Calendar is “The Julian Calendar”, so named after Julius Caesar who, under his orders in 47 B.C, started our current Date System Ball rolling, although it was actually based on the comings and goings of his predecessor “AUGUSTUS CAESAR” . As mentioned above, however, the calendar, as we know it today, was changed drastically by POPE GREGORY 13th in 1582 and, because of this, some people prefer to call it “The Gregorian Calendar”, not the “Julian Calendar”.
Let me explain, , , , ,
Up to the time of Julius Caesar, the Roman Calendar was based on the number of years dating from the founding of the Roman Empire. Days were Solar in length (the same as we have today) but months were 29 days alternating with 32 days and there were no weeks !!
In 47 BC, Julius Caesar revised all this and called it “The Julian Calendar“. This is the rough basis of our present calendar but it was subsequently altered from time to time, namely, by the Emperor Constantine who introduced our 7-day week, a Monk by the name of Dioysius Exiguus (553 A.D.) (as elaborated upon hereunder) and finally, quite drastically by Pope Gregory 13th.as late as 1582 as mentioned above.
3: ANOMALY No:1 THE AUGUSTUS 4-YEAR MIX-UP
(a): Augustus Caesar actually reigned in full control of the Roman Empire for FOUR YEARS before ====
(b): He was officially and Legally proclaimed Emperor.
Now comes the Anomaly, , ,. It could not be decided whether or not to make the starting date of the ‘New Calendar’ (a) or (b) above. Whichever is chosen will lead to an argument as to which one is correct , , , i.e. A FOUR-YEAR ERROR!!
4: ANOMALY No:2 A MONKEY STUCK ON YET ANOTHER YEAR !!
In the year 553 A.D. (i.e. over 500 years after the birth of Christ (plus or minus 4 years, , , see “3” above) a certain Scythian Monk by the name of DIONYSIUS EXIGUUS (already mentioned in ”2: above) monkeyed around and insisted that YEAR ONE should be the actual year of Christ’s PHYSICAL BIRTH. How dare he do this, as this then had the effect of adding ONE EXTRA YEAR to all future dates !!! Namely, we all live ONE WHOLE YEAR AFTER OUR BIRTH before we get our ”ONE YEAR OLD” Certificate!! Prior to this, our age is always stated as being so many MONTHS old.
5: ANOMALY No:3 POPPA HOWARD’S MISSING TWO YEARS!!
If all ’Divine Prophesies” are based on Christ’s actual Physical Birth and not on man-made wishy-washy dates that change at the drop of a hat, then we can say that Christ was born on NOUGHT A.D / NOUGHT.B.C.
But if we say this THEN THERE IS OBVIOUSLY A TWO YEAR GAP BETWEEN ONE A.D. AND ONE B.C. This means that any Divine Prophesies BEFORE the turn of the Century must have another TWO years stuck onto them to make them come right AFTER the turn of the Century..
I have not come across this observation in any other writings so far, which is why I call it “POPPA HOWARD;S MISSING TWO YEARS!!!”
6: THE DECEMBER 21 2012 PROPHESY ALSO FALLS FOUL OF THE MONK’S ONE YEAR AND POPPA’S MISSING TWO YEARS
Note very carefully that the Mayan “21 December 2012” and other similar Ancient Prophesies also cross the turn of the Century line and thus fall foul of the Monk’s additional ONE year and Poppa’s Missing TWO years (to say nothing of the initial FOUR year “Caesarian Birth” fiasco) !!!
So do not be surprised on the day following the date of some very powerful Ancient Prophesy to hear a lot of people say “What was all the fuss about?!”
7: PROOF OF THE FOUR YEAR FIASCO ( See Anomaly No: 1 above)
As confirmation of “The Four Year Fiasco”, a first-century Jewish Historian Josephus states that King Herod the Great died just a few days after a Lunar Eclipse visible from Jericho, after the Passover Season in March. This is further confirmed by Astronomers who give the information that a Lunar Eclipse did in fact occur on 13 March 4 BC.
NOTE ALSO:, , , , , , , ,
(a): Herod was alive and kicking when Jesus was born (evidenced by the Historical Fact of his infant boys slaughtering)
(b): Josephus the Historian states that Herod died about mid- March 4 BC
(confirmed by the date of the recorded Lunar eclipse, as already mentioned).
(c): Dionysius the Monk calculated independently that Jesus was born in 4 BC.
(d): It was recognised by the Early Christians that Jesus was a 4 year old boy when the Julian Calendar was introduced.
(e): From Historical Records, the life of “Herod-the-not-so-Great” (ha ha!!) was only counted in weeks or even days following his orders to kill all the infant-boys of Bethlehem. This would appear to be evidence of God’s justice!!
(f): The Encyclopedia confirms that Herod the Great had all the infant boys of Bethlehem killed in order to try and destroy Jesus whose birth took place DURING THE LAST YEAR OF HIS REIGN , namely about 4 BC. (The Capitals are mine)
8: IN CONCLUSION
What can I say??? , , , , , , , , ,
The turn of events in History, occasioned by the high jinks of many individuals, have given us the legacy of a “Dog’s Breakfast” of a Calendar in which the Dates therein are completely meaningless as far as any Prophecies are concerned!! They could be “miles out”, , , even as much as SEVEN WHOLE YEARS OUT , namely, 4 years (Augustus) plus 1 year (Monk) plus 2 years (Poppa Howard) equals SEVEN (if they were to run sequentially and not concurrently)
Let the facts speak for themselves!!
PERTINENT INFORMATION RESEARCHED BY AUTHORESS Mikhael Ross
The “Gregorian Calendar” has its roots in Ancient Egypt 6,000 years ago. This calendar was introduced by Pope Gregory XIII who lived from 1502 to 1585 and was created with the aid of Priest and Astronomer Christopher Clavius.
The New Calendar was instituted on October 4, 1582, but 10 days were added, thus officially making the day following October 4 not October 5 1582 but October 15 1582 !!. This was done in an attempt to cancel out all the accumulated mathematical errors in the Julian Calendar since 45 BC and stop these occurring again in the future. As mentioned earlier, because of this, some people prefer to call it “ The Gregorian Calendar” whilst others still hang on to the original “Julian Calendar” title.
Not all Countries in Europe accepted the New Calendar. Some of the Countries that did comply were Spain, Portugal, Italy, Poland, France, and the present day Netherlands. The Catholic populations of Switzerland, and Germany followed suit a year later. The Protestants, however, intensely opposed the New Calendar and stubbornly followed the faulty old Julian Calendar for more than another Century. Great Britain and its Colonies also followed suit in 1752. Greece only accepted the calendar as late as 1923 !!
In spite of the ingenious changes made to the Julian Calendar by Pope Gregory X!!!, it still has just a few weaknesses, but, nevertheless, it is now universally accepted for all ‘Business’ and ‘Civil Purposes’ over and above all other calendars.
