This calendar is almost unknown in the West, although it is one of the most accurate, if not the most accurate in the world. Compared with the Gregorian calendar, which errors by one day, every 3,226 years, the Iranian calendar needs a one-day correction every 141,000 years. There are two reasons for this accuracy. The Iranian calendar uses a sophisticated intercalation system for determining the leap years. And the beginning of the year, which is a natural phenomenon (arrival of the Sun at the Vernal Equinox), is precisely determined each year by astronomical observations
that was a huge gap....why we still using the unaccurate version?.......I vote for Persian Calendar:thumbs:

The starting date is the journey of Mohammed from Mecca to Medina in 622 AD.

well,the Gerogorian's was introduced in 1580(16th century,Christian era) ,Persian's was introduced by omar khayam in 1079 (11th century,Christian era) Arabian's starting date is according to the journey of Mohammed from Mecca to Medina. Gerogorian's starting date is according to birthyear of jesus christ .
about Persian's I can tell Persian's starting date is according to astronomical computations for considering more accuracy.
Gerogorian's starting date is according to birthyear of jesus christ .
That's what they thought, because when the first calendar based on the birth of Jesus was introduced the priest that created it made a mistake in computing the year of his birth. In the Roman Empire the years were counted since the foundation of Rome (21 April 753BC) and there was a mistake of 4 years. Jesus was not born in 753 FR (Foundation of Rome), but 4 years earlier, in 749 FR, which means 4 BC. (Though some argue it was 3 BC (some say 11 september 3BC) others even 5BC.)
Can we change our usernames? I see Shuja (earlier vb_the_best) has got it changed but I could not find any option. Previously - vedam shashank also got it changed from Pink Panther (I guess). Exterminator seems to be very cruel name - what I am obviously not...
Yes, your name can be changed, but you can't do it. You must contact Brad, provide a good reason and he can do that since he has access to the database.
Okay.. thanks Cilu for the info ..will try reaching him but a little bit later may be.
