Think about it, New Years would end up being sometime in March but it would still be January 1st.
School would resume, but students would still be in last term of 0045?
Women who gave birth to children would still have to claim the previous year, i'm not even sure what month they would use.
So for 80 days babies would be dateless but born in year 0045
Credit cards and bank machines would of course FAIL us.
This would cause mass histeria.
The more I think about it, the more thankful I am that I live in the 21st century.
So why the elongated year?
I'm glad you asked. (LOL)
In 45 B.C., Julius Ceasar's astrologers discovered that earth orbits arounds the sun 365.242 days and so in an effort to get us back on track they lengthened one year by 80 days. And every four years after that added a day to the month of Febuary and hence began the leap year.
Why is a year 365 days?
Because it takes the earth 365.242 days to rotate around the sun
Why is a month 29, 30 or 31 days?
Because it takes the moon that many days to rotate around the earth
Why is a week 7 days?
There is no astronomical reason for a 7 day week, none.
Jesus spoke light into existence on Day 1, and the 4 days that followed He filled the earth.
On Day 6, He could have chosen to speak man into existence, but He didn't
He got down on His knees and got His hands dirty with dirt, formed Adam and breathed life into him
And then.... on Day 7, He was soo tired, He rested.
- All He did was speak for 5 days, that's not hard, I can speak for hours and not need to rest?
- On Day 6, he molded man and gave Him only ONE breath, He had countless breaths, it's like blowing one puff of air into a ballon, that's easy, right?
- Okay so even if what He did wasn't easy (IT WASN'T), He is God, tired isn't in the vocabulary of the pre-incarnate Christ, He isn't bound by time or space, sweat didn't exist to the Trinity, metabolism is a joke, tissue regeneration isn't even a concept, talk less of an act that requires rest. Mercy, it's GOD, regneration isn't even a word.
So why did He rest?
Why did He add another day to the creation story?
Why did He elongate our week by 1 day?
