Happy Gregorian New Year

The Gregorian calendar was imposed on western civilization in the year 1582 by the Papacy, based on the Julian Calendar which was introduced by Julius Caesar in 46 B.C. The Julian calendar was based on the Roman Calendar, which in turn was based on the Greek Lunar Calendars.

Jose Arguelles, decoder of the Mayan Calendar, and co-founder of Earth Day, proposes a better alternative to our present Gregorian Calendar.  It’s the 13 moon / Dreamspell calendar. Sign the petition for calendar reform.

  1. I’ve often wished that we could switch to a lunar calendar rather than an almost solar-based one – it would make much more sense.
