    Flat Earthers, move over - the three centuries that weren't ?

    Ah, the latest in the "Science and History are not what you think" movement:

    It seems all that History we studied in school was not all that historical, after all.

    My Friend Charles Martel, for one, will be SO disappointed.

    It may not be so much that I've conceded your point as that you just can't hear me rolling my eyes.

    That is just too good not to be true, I insist it must be true. For one thing it immediately explains why there's a drift in carbon dating across the missing period and why the Dark Ages were dark in the first place.

    It’s normal. You must provoke. You must insult the belief of all monotheists. You must make fun of the belief of all monotheists.

    You can't trust a man that sports a beard like that.

    They must have had divine help to move the stars and planets in their orbits, there are plenty of references to eclipses going way back that are exactly where they are expected to be.

    Calendar Time has always been man made. After all, how could anyone relate to dates before the invention of the Calendar? Even with the controversy as to the year of Jesus' birth (if he ever existed in the first place), a general standard had to be set, so as to conform with everyone else, so Calendars began at 1 AD. Anything before that counted backwards. Even now, I seem to recall that every 100 years there has to be a Leap Second in order to keep the clocks accurate, so the idea of some being 11 minutes out is not unrealistic.

    As for a period having been faked - well, what do you expect. The records were kept by the Church. Fakery is synonymous with Religion.

    Nothing like so organized. There's a chap in some international time-institute who every year makes a decision whether there should be a leap second added and if he says there will be, then there is. It's probably monthly, not annually.

    "The International Earth Rotation and Reference Systems Service, formerly the International Earth Rotation Service, is the body responsible for maintaining global time and reference frame standards".

    Classic crackpot. You can't fake solar eclipses. And if Charlemagne didn't exist then someone exactly like him devised and implemented the reforms that led to the creation of his empire and of which records exist down to the number and type of mail shirt and weapons a warrior/knight was required to have.

    There was a controversy 30 years ago on similar lines. Velikovsky I think was the name. Reckoned there were 600 years either missing or duplicated (can't now recall) in the Egyptian chronology. I rather gather subsequent research has filled the gaps that concerned him without the need for planets significantly changing their orbits over a few hundred years which was apparently involved.
    The crowd: "Yes! We are all individuals!"
    Lone voice: "I'm not."

    Wasn't he the guy that claimed that the Moon was created when Venus and Earth collided back around the time Joshua was having that battle where the Sun stood still for a whole day?

    Sounds like his sort of thing, though I can't say I know that one. (Other than maths lessons when I was a child...)
