Lunar calendar?  Seems kosher to me...

I managed to get the thing to tell me my birthday. And then apparently you can check it here to see who shares your birthday.

This is what it spit out for me:

Your birthday on the 13 Moon Calendar is:

Resonant Moon day 8

13 Moons x 28 days = 364 days = 52 seven-day weeks. The 365th day of the year is called the Day Out of Time, a day to celebrate peace through culture, time is art and practice universal forgiveness so that everyone can start the next year freshia

Screw a lunar calendar.  We fixed numbers with metric, we should fix the calendar the same way.  No more months with unequal days, every month should have 30 days.  At the end of the year, a five day party.

meh
problem 1) religion
simple solution - they keep their own calendar and the rational world keeps the NEW CAL

problem 2) work week
currently 7 days ... ugh
we currently work 5/7 or .714 of a week
switching to 7/10 or .70 of a week would give us a TINY bit of a break.

problem 3) cost of changing
and this is why we will NEVER CHANGE - EVER
the cost of changing all calendars, software, systems, laws, rules and stuff is insanely prohibitive.
with little or no actual gain.
and if EVERYONE on the planet doesnt use the same cal, you have conversion problem on top of everything

pretty sure the french tried this with the metric system.

hell we cant even get the US to go metric

We have a working, if annoying nearly-worldwide standard. With computers around, it's pretty much too late to change it, because that'd be billions of lines of code to fix.

I don't like that Greenwich is considered the center of the world, but at least it's consistent.
 
2013-02-17 05:29:43 PM
I'm just throwing this out there FWIW (which isn't much), but if were any desire at all to create a new calendar, I would argue for:

Five days per week
Six weeks per month.
Three months per season
Four seasons per year.
Add an extra week (of five days) at the end of the year.
Add a leap day every four years, except for years divisible by 128,
Start the calendar on the first day of Autumn (it makes the seasons line up better).

There! A calendar more accurate than the Gregorian variety.

/To show my work, every 128 year period would have 46751 days, which would make each year an average of 365 and 31/128 days, or 365.2421875 days, instead of 365.2425 days (normal Gregorian) or 365.24225 days (Sir John Herschel's proposal). The tropical year equation is  Y =365.24219647 − 6.24×10−6T , with T=0 at the start of 1900, so you are currently looking at roughly 3/4 of a second off per year.

//We are too path dependent to adopt such a thing, though. It is kind of fun to play around with it to see what the best calendar would be if you started from scratch.
 
2013-02-17 05:32:19 PM
Screw these candy-assed  kludges like leap days and in this case days that are not part of any week.

What we need is orbital engineering - change the earth's orbit to be exactly 364 days and change the moon's orbit so that the synodic month is exactly 28 days. This would be more likely to happen than any form of calendar reform.

Too dificult for Westerners, especially Americans who can't even seem to grasp the metric system.  All of that simplification of using measurements based on tens is way too complex for Americans.  We need wacky measurements or we juat don't get it.  If we attempted to go by something like the Mayan or Aztec calendars, which are the most accurate by the minute, our heads would explode with all of the new lernin' we'd have to do.

Glancing Blow: I worked for Nabisco and they used a four-week, thirteen month calendar.  It greatly simplified planning.


Sounds nice. I can't believe that OBs have yet to notice there are thirteen 28 day periods in a year, not twelve. Especially since they won't book an annual less than a year after your last one.

Having to call for an extension to your birth control prescription every year because they don't review how the calendar works in med school is a PITA.
 
2013-02-17 06:02:28 PM

Incontinent_dog_and_monkey_rodeo: Screw a lunar calendar.  We fixed numbers with metric, we should fix the calendar the same way.  No more months with unequal days, every month should have 30 days.  At the end of the year, a five day party.


Jeez are you reading my mind?

I've been a proponent of this for years.

But you should note that the party period changes depending upon the need for leap days

Crap. If you want a lunar calendar, use the Chinese one. Interesting 60-year cycles, and specific, well-known festivals at specific times. Same for the Hindu calendar, or the Jewish calendar. Any of them are respectable, serious, and very ancient. Whoever made up this silly-ass New-Age-A-Go-Go system has way too much time on his hands and needs a shot of Thorazine.

Our current calender is kind of silly. I propose a calender of 12 months, each with 30 days.

5 days of booze, food, sex, drugs, music, and pretty much whatever kind of hedonistic behavior you wanted.

2013-02-17 06:46:16 PM

HairBolus: Screw these candy-assed  kludges like leap days and in this case days that are not part of any week.

What we need is orbital engineering - change the earth's orbit to be exactly 364 days and change the moon's orbit so that the synodic month is exactly 28 days. This would be more likely to happen than any form of calendar reform.


It is popularly thought that the Earth's rotational period is 24 hours and the orbital period is one cycle of the seasons or about 365.24 days.  Neither is precisely true.  The rotational period, or sidereal day, is closer to 23h 56m 4s; we get the extra 0:03:56 because the Earth has advanced in its orbit, and the Sun has shifted slightly eastward.  The number of solar days per orbit is the number of sidereal days minus exactly one.  The orbital period is slightly longer than the seasonal cycle, about 365.26 days, because the Earth's axis slowly changes alignment.

So we need the orbital period to be 365 rotations plus whatever extra the precession of the equinoxes adds.  Changing the orbit may change the precession slightly, but that looks like a lot of work for very little change to account for, so I'm going to assume the precessional cycle remains at 25772 Julian years.  This adds about 0.014 day to the orbital period.

Our target orbital period, then, is 365.014 sidereal days, where the present one is 366.256 sidereal days.  We need to shorten the orbital period to 0.996609 of its present value.  Orbital period is proportional to the 1.5 power of the orbital radius (Kepler's third law), so the radius is the 2/3rds power of that ratio, or 0.997738 of its present value.  Solar radiation decreases as the square of the radius, so we're getting 1.004539 times the present solar radiation.

Perhaps the Global Warming Derp Squad will then be right to blame the Sun.

On behalf of folks whom:

a) Are actually aware of what the actual Long Count calendar which is still in use by Mayan communities is supposed to look like (and there is no "Blue Galactic Human" bullshiat in it);
b) Don't appreciate newage-rhymes-with-sewage cultural appropriation of living indigenous faiths; and/or
c) Have followed the antics of the Dreamspell cult for a while and know that it's pretty much their whargarbl that singlehandedly led to the 21 December 2012 panic (and a rather more lulzy "Harmonic Convergence" bit of whargarbl back in the last century)...

...well, I am of the personal opinion that Jose Arguelles should be thrown in a cenote and I also hope there really is a special Mayan hell set up for him.

(No, not terribly amused at this, seeing as I actually can say I've lost a former friend to this Dreamspell crap.  A lot of folks also don't realise the Dreamspell stuff was transmogrifying from the usual "newage-rhymes-with-sewage" love-and-light-and-hippy-cultural-appropriation-of-any-non-Abrahamic-t radition stuff to actual apocalypticism shortly after the Harmonic Convergence stuff when Arguelles started pretty much claiming that if his "13 Moon Calendar" wasn't adopted it would cause Mass Apocalypse and the End Of The World when Baktun 13 rolled around.

(No matter that he not only added so much newage-rhymes-with-sewage crap to his "Calendar" (mixing not only the usual Mayan + non-Mesoamerican First Nations stuff, but adding crystal-fetishism and even frank UFOer "The Greys are really here to help us learn, evolve, and get the fark off this planet with the help of a lot of hallucinogens" stuff) but shifted the dates around to the point his "calendar" was a full month and a half ahead of the established Long Count dates--seriously, the guy behind this is pretty much the very sort of "plastic shaman" Playing At NDN Religion that actual First Nations ceremonial authorities have damn near declared war against (literally in the case of the Lakota).

(The really amazing thing is that he hasn't (yet) gotten anyone killed that I know of; unfortunately, the same can't be said for some other "plastic shamans" who have basically Played At NDN Religion holding bogus "sweat lodges" and gotten people killed :P)

/haven't even gone into how this sort of crap makes it very difficult for people who might actually legitimately follow indigenous traditions
//have to say that the actual traditional keepers of the Long Count took the "Dreamspell Panic of 2012" a lot better than I would have, and mostly restricted their criticism to "You're doing it wrong, kthx"
 
2013-02-17 07:24:02 PM

ThreeFootSmurf: interesting but this is an old calendar   that was used before the Gregorian. shouldn't we move forward away from superstitions and mysticism and not backward towards it... fun to play around with though


Actually, the "calendar" in this case ISN'T actually the true Long Count calendar, but is some godawful newage-rhymes-with-sewage mishmash of a certain newage-rhymes-with-sewage cult leader's blending of a bad interpretation of the Long Count calendar (which is still in use as a liturgical calendar among Mayans, by the way, who also still exist) along with bad interpretations of Woodlands First Nations lunar calendars, bad interpretations of Hindu scriptures and mythology, weird "harmonic convergence/vibrate the colours" and crystal-fetish stuff that sounds like a bad ripoff of the writings of Timothy Leary, and weird UFOer-cult "The aliens are here to uplift us all to energy beings"/"Chariots of the Gods"/"Ancient Aliens" bollocks...all pretty much thrown into a blender and set to "Liquefy" and hawked to gullible folks seeking enlightenment as an Actual Honest-To-The-Chac Bit Of Magical Injun Wisdom.

Or, more succinctly, a very bad mockery of an actual liturgical calendar by a bad "plastic shaman" who pretty much has tried to use it to start his own end-of-the-world cult. :P

(Now, the actual Long Count calendar has an ancient heritage itself--at least to the Classic Maya in uninterrupted transmission, and possibly dating all the way back to the Epi-Olmec people--well before the time of Christ, making it one of the oldest calendars still in some form of use.  The Dreamspell "Thirteen Moon" abomination?  Maybe about twenty years, and I'm being damn generous on that count.)

(Then again, this should in a way make me feel better, because it's not just First Nations mythology they're raping and pillaging; I'm still a little surprised that they didn't throw weird interpretations of angel hierarchies and angel-ology in to complete the Newage-Rhymes-With-Sewage Superfecta of Cultural Appropriation. :P  Hell, maybe they could throw runes in there as well as the old Greek and Egyptian and Celtic gods into their newage-sewage-pit so as to get the Asatruar AND the Neo-Hellenicists and Kemetics and Druidics after them, too, to get a good portion of the neopagan community wanting to kick their asses too. :D)

AliceBToklasLives: namatad: I love when a retarded system is used to replace a retarded system.

TADA

I'm not sure what's retarded about it - it's a pain to learn when you're five, but once learned, it gets the job done.


the current system is 100% arbitrary. if you wiped out all memory of the calendar, weeks and months, and you created a new system for recording the passage of the year, you would not ever recreate the current system.

the ONLY constants are 365.25 days in a year. lunar cycle is not bound to the solar cycle and would be ignored.
but ALL of the systems tossed together to "replace" the existing systems ... shudder

LazarusLong42: This idea has been around for a couple hundred years, but never has it been presented with this much new-age bullshiat.


Take the new age bullshiat away, and the basic concept would be great. All of the months actually being the same length? That would help in so many ways. Off the top of my head, the one I can think of is refilling my meds. I get 30 days' worth, and can usually refill about a week early, but trying to figure out if it was a 28 day, 30 day or 31 day month, and then figure out which day exactly I can refill my wonderful painkillers early would be greatly simplified this way. There are obviously other times this would help, too.

I just don't need the rest of the whole mess.

Base 12 would be FAR better.

Caffandtranqs: Too dificult for Westerners, especially Americans who can't even seem to grasp the metric system.  All of that simplification of using measurements based on tens is way too complex for Americans.  We need wacky measurements or we juat don't get it.  If we attempted to go by something like the Mayan or Aztec calendars, which are the most accurate by the minute, our heads would explode with all of the new lernin' we'd have to do.


Um, pretty sure that France told us "fark you, no metric system for you!" at first. By the time they decided they weren't pissed off at us anymore for playing nice with the Brits out of political expedience rather than any real feelings of friendship, and decided we could learn it (back in those days, you had to send a delegation to physically learn new ideas) if we wanted, it was both too expensive to send a delegation, and the Imperial system was already well-established in the US (plus that Napoleon dude has shiat pretty unstable in Europe, so they weren't terribly sure whether metric or Imperial would be the standard once the smoke cleared).

There's a reason the lunar calendar has never caught on in the western world...

1- that day out of time will keep screwing it up, slowly but surely, until the lunar phases don't line up with their moons/days/kin anymore, unless they take days back... in which case... you know, other problems.

2- planning any sort of anniversary or marking the passing of years gets crazy complicated. For example, try looking up not just your date of birth, but your 1st, 2nd, 3rd (and so on...) birthdays. They won't be on the same days... so it's not like you can just say "Oh, well, my birthday is on the Moon 7, day 3"... this year. Next year, it might be on Moon 6 day 28. And the year after...

Suffice to say, if you have to recalculate your birthday every farking year, not to mention every federal holiday...
The calendar's got to go.

Karac: 13 Moons x 28 days = 364 days = 52 seven-day weeks. The 365th day of the year is called the Day Out of Time, a day to celebrate peace through culture, time is art and practice universal forgiveness so that everyone can start the next year freshia

this guy's gonna have an aneurism when somebody gets around to telling him that a year is actual 365.25 days long.


Sure, if you want to keep following the Julian calendar. I'll take the Gregorian.

I, a Blue Resonant Night, made the journey all the way to the "52 Year Destiny Castle" where I became enmeshed in/with a Black Echoing Midmorning Snack. Someone, anyone, please come find me and lead me out. . . . It is very scary in this place.

jimboflux: Foundation for the Law of Time? Didn't those folks on Gallifrey already get that covered when they invented time travel? Just saying that maybe we ought to leave such matters to the professionals.


Hunh, I think that I've discovered the problem. We've gotta gaze into the Untempered Schism for a bit before we can understand any of this crap.

/seriously, I am WAY too sober for this

Also, the moon's rotation is actually 27.5 days, not 28. 13 * 27.5 = 357.5 days... so much for that idea.

Of course, there is an easier solution to making the Lunar calendar match the Solar year, that doesn't require painful recalculation of dates every year...

Slow the moon down by 14 hours, 18 minutes and 28 seconds per cycle... exactly. We can't overshoot it, or we'll just have to redo the whole thing!
All we have to do is move the moon 5,540.56 km away from the earth... should be a peice of cake. Right?

Oh, my bad... I'm an astrophysicist, and was looking at the sidereal month (time to same position relative to earth), which is 27.3-27.5 days... but because we care about it's position relative to earth AND sol... the lunar month becomes 29.5...

So... we actually have to speed the moon up, by bringing it closer- the numbers would be otherwise similar.

It's better than what we have now. Just not so much better.

The line starts behind the metric system, getting rid of pennies, and using dollar coins.
