Calendars Anonymous 05/03/2021 (Mon) 00:52:15 No.729
Gregorian? Julian? Or doctrinally inconsequential object of false pride?
>>729 The Julian calendar was the one agreed upon in ancient councils. the Gregorian calendar is a concession to sc*entists. I know which one I'd rather follow.
>>730 What about the Revised Julian of the Greek Orthodox? The Julian calendar itself was drafted by the ancient pagan mathematician Sosigenes out of Alexandria, and instituted by Julius Caesar. Are they trustworthy simply out of convention? The Jews still operate their own Hebrew calendar independently.
>>732 They're trustworthy because they were adopted by Christians for use officially. I believe at Nicaea. In other words, the Julian calendar was instituted by an Ecumenical Council. The Revised Julian is better as a compromise because at least it doesn't move Pascha, but I really don't see a reason to not just use the original Julian calendar.
