Quote# 5585

... the calendar has remained basically the same with some minor changes happening when we went from a Julian to a Gregorian calendar or vice versa... Its really a miracle if you think about it and I almost believe that God has had a hand in maintaining the weekly cycle through the years. Theres certainly no logical reason to hold onto a 7 day week cycle. A ten day cycle would probably work better but the fact we have stayed on the present system speaks for a possible supernatural support of it.

"A ten day cycle would probably work better..."

How?

A ten day cycle would probably work better

Notwithstanding the astronomical, stock-market-crashing cost of conversion in all the systems, this would mean 8 days of work between weekends. Are you really up for that Mr. Larmore? No? Then shut the hell up.

On the plus side, he did at least confess divine support for illogical pursuits, even though he did so while failing at logic itself.

"...we went from a Julian to a Gregorian calendar or vice versa..."

Way to hedge your bets.

No. It speaks for the huge weight of Tradition in our societies, and how Europa once ruled the world back in the 18th, enforcing their habits in the rest of the world.

Did you know ? In Egypt, Sunday is a working day.

If it works, don't fuck with it. It's nice to see he admits to the Julian calender as exisisting since most these guys think Christians created the tabulation of time.

Since the Julian calender was the same amount of days with the additional leap year day in place I guess the Olympian Gods must be the true religious belief

The ten day week was tried in revolutionary France and, IIRC, in the early Soviet Union.
Neither really worked, although I am in favour of five day weekends.

"or vice versa"? It's clear that you know EXACTLY what you're talking about, Jimbo. [/sarcasm]
Those minor changes were because the year is not exactly 365 days with exactly 24 hours in each. IF there was a omnipotent deity behind it, it ought to be more exact, really.

You are aware that there are different calendars in use today, right?
