I'm going to publish a Calendar for a New Time based on Michael's birth date, This will necessitate adding 7 years to the current Gregorian based one we all use, So, we move Christ - Mas to Mid-summer and relegate 12/25 to Santa Claus day in the Yule-tide, it's been overly commercialized anyway. But, August 21st should also become the new New Year's Day as it demarcates as a "Zero-Point" one ending and one beginning. Can anyone help me with advice or whatever? I will make this announcement broadly tomorrow at 10 a.m. Help!, somebody take this ball from me and run with it! I can't do it alone. :?

We are already being seen as yet another "strange cult". What we need is to show forth the Master's wonderful teaching, not to feature Christmas in August... It ain't gonna wash! I think its fine for US to celebrate, and maybe someday waaaaaay in the future, there will be some sort of adjustment made. However, IMHO, now is not the time.

Rearranging calendar dates spreads confusion. Bro Dave

Michaelloyal,

Exactly what type of help are you looking for? May I suggest featuring the current accepted year and parenthesising the +7 year. Otherwise we will always be 7 years early for our appointments. 8)

Hi Michaelloyal & the guys,

Welcome to the Truthbook discussion Boards ML !!

You surely are not the first person to think of a public intiative to change our mistaken calender but I have to aggree with the other guys that now is not the right time. At least not until it is time to take the UBook public.....then after awhile things like this will be demanded by the world public....and it will happen.

And guys, out of respect to ML's post let's keep thread on topic. That [other subject] can be debated at the Skeptics Corner.

Thanks

How would HIS b-day correspond to a date AD...Would HE have been born in September? I have a date of September 3...

Hello Michaelloyal,
Forgive me for disagreeing with you, I feel these are all details that don't really have any real importance. Similarly, the way Michael died on the cross was blown up beyond it's true significance. This too takes attention away from the way the master lived his life. Perhaps the energy used for developing this calendar project could be redirected toward something that has more of a spiritual impact.

Sincerely,
Mina

Don't do it!
Let humanity evolve by its own!
Don't try to impose your belief over others.

Allow everybody evolve at their own rithym, don't do the revolution, do the evolution!

Patience, go slow! Keep the pace!
