>> I know some are lunar and so it makes things messy. I haven't had a chance to do the research. But I think it's about the year 4600 and something on the Chinese calendar, I think the Jewish calendar is a couple hundred years behind that, and I think it's only about 1350 under the Islamic calendar. Hey, if the Egyptians had maintained a calendar, it would be about the year 6500!!!! (or something like that) I read somewhere that there is something called the Julian Period (not to be confused with the Julian calendar, although they are related), that back dates things to 4670 BC. I guess nothing happened before that worth dating. So is it really the year 6670 (actually it would still be 6669 here for another 20 minutes) >>
