Time is in the Eye of the Beholder
The calendar is a man-made device for reckoning time.
Through the centuries, calendars have been altered more closely to represent the seasons of the year, the phases of the moon, and the solar year. These changes must be recognized and understood in order to accurately date past events in relation to our own time and calendar.
It should be obvious, that a date (such as ‘stamped’ on a document) must be interpreted in light of the time period, the religious affiliation, and the country where it was created, before it can be compared to our modern reckoning of time and the Gregorian calendar we use today.
What is Time?
Ecclesiastes 3 (NIV)
There is a time for everything, and a time for every purpose under heaven.
a time to be born and a time to die,
a time to plant and a time to uproot,
a time to kill and a time to heal,
a time to tear down and a time to build,
a time to weep and a time to laugh,
a time to mourn and a time to dance,
a time to scatter stones and a time to gather them,
a time to embrace and a time to refrain from embracing,
a time to search and a time to give up,
a time to keep and a time to throw away,
a time to tear and a time to mend,
a time to be silent and a time to speak,
a time to love and a time to hate,
a time for war and a time for peace.
Sorry I couldn’t add anymore, but I’m all out of time. That, and it’s was way past my bed time.
