In the past, solar calendar fraud was frequent. Learn why and how it happened. In this article, you all know that a year lasts 365 days. That is, the earth completes its orbit around the sun in 365 days. People know that there is a certain season in February, the heat starts in June, the cold ends at the end of the year in December. June 21 is the longest day of the year. December 21 is the shortest day of the year and September 21 and March 21 are equal. With this system of months we plan our days and years to come. Assuming that all the foggy days and months of the world are determined by the same system.
Even people thousands of years ago knew that there are 365 days in a year, so they made a 365-day calendar.
But what happened ????? Ten or twenty years after the first calendar, it turned out that something was wrong. June 21 was not the biggest day of the year and December 21 was not the smallest day of the year. Even the spring did not come according to the calendar, the heat and cold had slipped back and forth. This issue has been going on for thousands of years. The cold was coming in the summer months and the heat was coming in the winter months.
The calendar had become unreliable, either the sun had a problem or the earth’s speed had increased or decreased. Once again the days began to count. But no one was thinking.
This is 45 years before the birth of Jesus. There was a famous king of Rome. Julius Caesar He had instructed some elders to find out the problem. After careful research, the elders told him that the year does not have 365 days, but every fourth year it increases by one day. The whole mess is of the same day. Therefore, the fourth year was extended by one day and it was declared as a leap year. This calendar is called the Julian calendar after Julius.
The problem is solved to some extent. Now, even after ten years, the days were the same. Everyone was satisfied and the Julian calendar was adopted.
But a hundred years later, things went awry. Once again, June 21 was not the biggest day of the year. Then, when fifteen hundred years had passed, the chaos had increased so much that the difference of fifteen whole days had come. That is, one day after a hundred years,
So once again the elders sat down with their heads bowed. At that time, in the sixteenth century, there was a pope named Gregory. They hired older people to do the job. By this time a reliable system of clocks had arrived. It was calculated that there are 365 days, 5 hours 40 minutes and 46.24 seconds in a year. A leap year is not a whole day, but a day is eleven minutes and 14 seconds long, which increases to a full day after one hundred years.
The solution to this problem was to consider a leap year in 100 years as 365 days instead of 366 days.
The problem is solved. It was a mess. The 15 days in the Julian calendar were 1500 years long. But what to do with these 15 days now ???? This question was important. It was thought to take 15 days less. When the pastor reduced the days to fifteen, the centuries-old dates began to go awry.
There was a cry in Europe. There was a great riot. The Pope was right but who changes their history with their own hands ???? The riots continued for four hundred years. Half of Europe wanted to follow the Julian calendar and half according to Gregory.
This issue was finally resolved in 1930. The Gregorian calendar was adopted because it was scientifically correct and 15 days of fraud was accepted.
