The New Earth Calendar is intended to serve and benefit all the
people on Earth. It is not influenced by religion, politics, nationality,
race or sex. It simply correlates the relationship between the earth,
its rotation and annual journey around the sun. It applies equally
to all inhabitants of Earth, and only Earth because it would be
meaningless on any other planet, around any other sun or in any
other solar system. It is unique to us.
Consider having just one monthly calendar, rather than the 28 in
our current system. The New Earth Calendar is a practical refinement
of the Gregorian calendar we now use and would eliminate the many
inconsistencies that have been perpetuated for more than 2000 years.
Thirteen equal months of 28 days. Each quarter has exactly 13 weeks
and an equal number of workdays.
week, month and year starts on a Monday, never a Sunday. Sunday is the last day of the week and would always be
on the 7th, 14th, 21st, and 28th of the month. Each country will
be able to set their holidays in accordance with local custom, but
generally, with the exception of Easter, they will always be on
a fixed date and day of the week. They could be set so as to establish
long weekends, but shorten the “dead week” that typically
happens between Christmas and New Year’s Day. With The New
Earth Calendar and Sundays always on fixed dates, the possible dates
for Easter are reduced from around 35 to about 5 or 6.
have timepieces that perfectly divide our days in a predictable
and dependable manner. It seems inevitable and the time may be right
to make our calendar just as simple, reliable and useful. Because
a date in one year will occur on the same weekday in all years to
come, business, government, educational institutions and other similar
organizations would be able to schedule once and rely on the same
dates in future years.
Tremendous efficiencies would benefit everyone but especially those
involved with the delivery of goods and services. Anyone involved
with scheduling would welcome the straightforward simplicity of
The New Earth Calendar and appreciate its perpetual qualities. Statisticians
will welcome easy comparisons from one period to another, allowing
more accurate planning of production, deliveries and staffing.
For the superstitious, there would never be another Friday the
13th, because Fridays will only fall on the 5th, 12th, 19th and
26th of the month.
