Thursday 15th January 2009

G'day. Well I'll start by briefly talking about the calendar. What a joke. Here we have a method of establishing a way of fixing a period of time either before, current or in the future and it is based on mythology, a pope's idea in February 1582 of how old the universe is and when a person was assumed to be born and a collection of out of synchronization of cycles of the moon and sun. It is in fact a religious time keeper of events based on one religion, Christianity. It does not include other religions in its make up and is thus saying to the world population 'Hey our Christian calendar is the TRUE UNIVERSAL CALENDAR and accept no other.' What a load of tosh! With all the advances in technology that we accept, you are using one now, it is about time that these clever people of the world devised a calendar that was based on universal FACT, did not include mythological names for days and even months and the year not based on the assumed birth of of one person. It should not be based on religion.

I am sure if tomorrow some religious leader or politician were to say that they had the idea for a new calendar based on the crappy things used for the calendar we use today, The Gregorian calendar, that person would be considered a crank. Yet we all do it, write and say a date that is just plain stupid! Look we say January is the month now. January comes from Janus who was a Roman god of doorways, gates, beginnings and endings. Oh yippee! We all believe in a god who liked doorways. I like like doorways, handy to get into my home, but I am not a bloody god! And take Thursday it is named after yet another god, the god Thor of thunder because he made a lot of noise in the clouds, strewth how many gods are there in the universe and where do they live? That is for another blog. So by saying or writing Thursday and January you are telling others that you believe in two mythological gods. Oh well keep taking the silly juice and pills.

Oh and because I live in that great big land down under called Australia the date here seems to be different from where this blog goes to so at times it may have TWO different dates on it. Strewth now you readers are going to be more confused. We have Universal Time so why not have Universal Calendar so that is the SAME DATE at the SAME TIME EVERYWHERE!

This means if someone is born in New Zealand then their time and date of birth is different to anyone in the west coast of Canada born at the same precise moment of time. Do you think that God did this to add more confusion and chaos to our lives?

Cheers until the next time.
