Ancient Calendars of the Holy Bible shows general
calendar flow starting from original seven day weeks and lunar
phases. Progression toward 360-day midpoint years involves
lunar/solar calendars. Antediluvian Calendar derives the Begat
Genealogy of Adam in chapter 5 of Genesis. Egyptian, Jewish,
Mesoamerican and the 364-day calendar year stem variations of the
ancient calendar system. Legacy Egyptian calendar Sothic Cycle
dating leads to Roman, Julian and finally Gregorian solar
calendars. Hillel II formulated modern Jewish 19-year lunar/solar
cycles. Mayan culture branched into multiple Mesoamerican
Antediluvian First Calendar provides an
overview that connects the Mayan calendar with the earliest Bible calendar -- the
Antediluvian Patriarchs. Ancient calendars in the Holy Bible had lunar/solar
calendar origins. Tools are developed from the three oldest
known lunar/solar calendars: Jewish, Mayan and Egyptian. Chapter 5 in Genesis lists
the ages of the Antediluvian Patriarchs. The “begat” family of
Adam measured time with a lunar/solar calendar similar to
Ancient calendars in the Holy Bible had
lunar/solar calendar origins. The work at timeemits develops
tools from the three oldest known lunar/solar calendars:
Jewish, Mayan and Egyptian. Our goal here is to provide an
overview that connects the Mayan calendar with the earliest Bible calendar -- the
Antediluvian Patriarchs. Genesis
5 lists the ages of the Antediluvian Patriarchs. The
“begat” family of Adam measured time with a lunar/solar
calendar similar to the Mayan calendar.
The traditional Jewish lunar/solar calendar measures
differences between the moon and sun to intercalate about
209-days over 19-years. Some 7-months add to catch up the
lunar-side with the solar-side of the Jewish calendar. The
Mayans adapted the same reasoning for a 20-year lunar/solar
cycle and embed an extra 210-days using a different method.
Some mystery and confusion exists surrounding the Mayan
calendar. Hyphens help to improve phrase clarity.
The Mayan 52-year Calendar Round accomplishes needed
intercalary time with a dual year system. The Mayan
260-day-Tzolken-sacred-year was part of a 365-day-solar-year.
Alongside the 260-day-Tzolken-sacred-year, a 360-day-Tun-year
kept track of civil functions. The 360-day-Tun-year marked the
approximate middle point between 12-lunar-months or 354-days,
and the 365-day-Haab-solar-year. Following the
260-day-Tzolken-sacred-year, 105-days more were included to
finish the 365-day-Haab-solar-year. Sister cultures such as
the Inca and Aztec used an identical system of counting.
Earlier texts call them the Sun Kingdoms’ Calendars.
Preference inclusively determines the name Mesoamerican
Mayan astronomer-priests were very good at calculating
multiples of days and years. Mayans purposely addressed a
360-day-Tun-civil-year with prefixes in order to lengthen the
calendar. Prefixes are the “Katun” that describes 20-Tun-years
and the “Baktun”, meaning 400-Tun-years. They multiplied the
20-year lunar/solar cycle by 20-years again, thus squaring
time. Multiples of lunar/solar 20-year cycles occur in the
form of 20-year-Katun-cycles and 400-year-Baktun-cycles.
Mesoamerican chronologists accept the 400-year Baktun
Cycle was an integral part of the Mayan calendar system.
The 365-day-Haab-year and 260-day-Tzolken-sacred-year combine
to form the Mesoamerican 52-year cycle or Calendar Round. The
52-year chronological summit was the cornerstone of the dual
calendar system. A complete Calendar Round repeated after
18,980-days. The Calendar Round 52-Tun-civil-years multiply by
360-days to produce 18,720-days. Working like meshed gears,
72-Tzolken-sacred-years of 260-days each multiply to equal the
same 18,720-days. The last five special holidays are the
Wayeb. The Wayeb separately accrues every year to add the
final 260-days in the Calendar Round. One extra
260-day-Tzolken-sacred-year adds to 72-sacred-years for
73-Tzolken-sacred-years. Multiplying 73-Tzolken-sacred-years
by 260-days per sacred-year gives the equivalent 18,980-days
for a Calendar Round. The 52-year Calendar Round equals
73-Tzolken-sacred-years and both equal 18,980-days. The total
52-year Calendar Round is 18,980-days. By this calendar
system, only once in 52-years would any day of the
260-day-Tzolken-sacred-year coincide with any day of the
360-day-Tun-civil-year. A complete 52-year Calendar Round
would restart again the next dual sequence. Names for gods and
their particular meanings often varied across the cultures.
Calendar math remained the same.
We insert a fact from the Book of Enoch. Some ancient Jewish
sects were using a 364-day calendar year. Information gained
from the Dead Sea Scrolls and the three Book(s) of Enoch
support the idea of numerical matching. This concept says
X-number of days numerically match the same X number of years.
A bridge forms between X-days and X-years, where X describes
any number of days and years. The Mayan
260-year-Tzolken-sacred-cycle and the 105-year portion develop
All lunar/solar calendars are the product of prevailing
culture. On the other side of the world, Mesopotamian scribes
were recording Mayan calendar math in what we now call the Holy Bible. They were
doubling and dividing calendar time with astonishing accuracy.
The 260-day-Tzolken-sacred-year numerically matches a
260-year-Tzolken-sacred-cycle. A 365-day-Haab-solar-year
numerically matches with 365-years in a Haab-solar-cycle. The
360-day-Tun-year likewise matches a 360-year-Tun-cycle.
"And Adam lived an hundred and thirty years, and
begat a son in his own likeness, after his image; and called
his name Seth:" (KJV)
Early Bible writers simply divided the
260-year-Tzolken-sacred-cycle in half to get the 130-year age
of Adam. A few verses later, we have the principle calendar
instrument of the Mayans, the 105-year age of Seth.
Lunar/solar calendars distinguish between lunar-side times and
solar-side times. The lunar/solar calendar effectively
“time-split” 210-years into equal halves, a 105-year
lunar-side time split and the opposite 105-year solar-side
time split. These lunar/solar calendar tools enable us to
comprehend mentioned ages for the Antediluvian Patriarchs.
"And Seth lived an hundred and five years, and begat
The 260-day-Tzolken-sacred-year divides for two halves, each
with 130-days. The 260-year-Tzolken-sacred-cycle also
divides for two identical 130-year portions. Regarding the
365-day-solar-year, 105-days remain and for the
365-year-solar-cycle, 105-years remain.

The calendar used to record ages for the
Antediluvian Patriarchs includes two patterns of the 400-Year
Baktun Cycles. The next age bracket advances the
lunar/solar calendar to the 800-Year Generation Cycle
era. Consider the time mentioned after the birth of Seth,
until the death of Adam.
"And the days of Adam after he had begotten Seth were
eight hundred years: and he begat sons and
Suitable vocabulary is necessary to develop
hyphenated names such as the 400-Year Baktun Cycle
and 800-Year Generation Cycle. Twice the 400-Year
Baktun Cycle measures one 800-Year Generation
Cycle. Calendar references for the "begat" genealogy
following Adam affix 800-Year Generation Cycles in
repeating succession to each named character. From Adam
through Jared, all Patriarchs include the 800-Year
Generation Cycle. The Antediluvian Calendar cultivated
spirituality of the planetary and star deities found woven
into the oldest Mesopotamian cultures.

Lunar/solar calendars use nightly observation and any
complete discussion about the Mayan calendar includes the 104-year
Venus Round. First accredited to appear in the Dresden
Codex, Mesoamerican Calendars exhibit observed practices
according to the 104-Year Venus Round. Two Mayan
52-Year Calendar Rounds are equal to one 104-Year
The strongest pillar connecting the Mayan Calendar system to
the aforementioned Antediluvian Calendar is the transit
pathway and surviving mythology surrounding the planet
Venus. Repetitive legends and astronomical principles were
in place that associate five heliacal risings of Venus every
8-years in Mesoamerican religion with the Egyptian god-star,
Sirius. The Dresden Codex Venus Table furnishes critical
planetary facts regarding Venus. Five pages of the Dresden
Codex record heliacal risings for the planet Venus. The
famous Aztec mythological figurehead, Quetzalcoatl
resurrects to assume his rightful place as the supreme
deity. He was the Feathered Serpent that revived the dried
bones of the old dead by sprinkling his blood on them.
Quetzalcoatl or Venus was the morning star-god of vegetation
and fertility. Life, light and visibility oppose death,
darkness and invisibility below the horizon.
Ancient observers noticed the relative positions of Earth,
Venus and the Sun recur according to a schedule. Venus
orbits the sun 13 times during the period in which the earth
orbits the sun 8 times. Venus passes between the earth and
the sun every 584-days or 5 times in 8 years. Venus, in
astronomical terms, completes five synodic periods in 8
years, or 5 evening and morning star circuits. The synodic
interval is the time between two successive conjunctions of
a planet (Venus) with the sun. Each synodic period lasts
about 1.6 Earth years or 584-days. Mesoamerican Calendars
meticulously track five Venus cycles of 584-days each over
8-Haab-solar-year multiples of 365 days. The true orbit of
Venus around the sun is 225-days and should not be confused
with Venus’ heliacal rising and observable behavior. Mayans
watched Venus progress in this manner 13 times, which
culminates with one 104-year Venus Round.
Observations involving the planet Venus
allow deeper inspection of the records seen in chapter 5 of Genesis.
Early Israelite history mixes with content drawn from
celestial deities. Our Holy
Bible draws a line connecting astronomy, astrology
and calendar systems. The sun, moon, planets and stars are
natural timekeepers of the cosmos.
The Mayan version of Seth establishes that a 104-Year
Venus Round multiplies by a 365-day-Haab-solar-year to
attain 37,960-days in the Venus Round. Mesopotamian
cultures altered these figures slightly. Seth in Egyptian
mythology is a male god similar to the Old Testament Baals.
The biblical Astarte or Astaroth is the female fertility
consort to the Babylonian Baal. Standing stones symbolized
Baal or Bel, and his alias names: Baalat, Molech or Marduk.
A bull frequently represents Baal/Seth. Ishtar is the proper
Babylonian name for the Canaanite goddess Astarte, Asherah
or Astaroth. Ishtar was associated with the planet Venus as
the bright morning star. Her Sumerian name is Inanna. Later
the Greeks would caller her Aphrodite and the Romans by the
common name of today, Venus. She equates to the Greek Europa
and Isis, the female fertility goddess and consort to
Osirius in Egyptian mythology.
Planet Venus was the bright morning star throughout the
ancient world. In Mesoamerica, Venus was a powerful male
deity. Kukulatin or Quetzalcoatl dominated the Mayan
pantheon. Mesopotamian religion, through all stages and
phases, usually worshiped planet Venus in the feminine
gender. Lunar relationships between 19-year or 20-year
lunar/solar cycles likely shifted patronage of the
archetypal figure from masculine to feminine. Transference
to the female goddess occurs for couples supplanting the
godhead or vise versa. Ishtar/Inanna shared the Baal time
control over 105-days of solar-side time split for any
20-year lunar/solar cycle. Hence, 105-years of solar-side
time split followed suit for any 400-Year Baktun Cycle.
The 104-Year Venus Round naturally substantiates 105-Years
of Solar-Side time split when we engage the
resurrection story. Ishtar/Baal, Isis/Seth and the other
examples are contingent upon the heliacal risings of Venus.
The Antediluvian Calendar, an artifact initiated from
naked-eye human observation, stretches onward for hundreds
and thousands of years.
We must remember those preserving the precious knowledge
down through history. Intrepid copyists traversed desert and
mountain alongside brethren in the clan. Librarians at
Nineveh compiled and saved many cuneiform tablets. Artists
at ceremonial centers painstakingly carved the legacy into
stone for all to see. Tireless monks working in dimly lit
medieval rooms spent their entire lives translating and
revising their interpretations of sacred scripture. Everyone
agreed that to permit any errors would profane the sacred
message they sought to protect. Modern printing presses and
computers are the medium of exchange today.
Most attempts at past world chronology
backtrack in order to date the ancient past. Since advances
by the Roman Empire, the secular western world and most of
Christendom uses a solar calendar. Only in the last 50-years
or so, have archeologists in South and Central America been
able to decipher relevant calendar inscriptions.
A calendar system that arose in Mesopotamia at least 5,000
years ago transfers to the new world by seafaring travelers.
The Moon, Sun, Sirius, Venus and even Jupiter were all key
celestial players in this Antediluvian Calendar system. The
calendar was lunar/solar based and specific time cycles
included 210-days of lunar/solar separation time during
every 19-year or 20-year cycle. They graduated lunar/solar
reckoning to reach 400-years by squaring 20-years. The Mayan
calendar asserts a 400-Year Baktun Cycle today.
Early astronomers found that the planet Venus adhered to a
visible 104-year Venus Round cycle.
Numerical matching of X-days with X-years stems from
a 364 day calendar year having Ethiopian and
Egyptian roots. A
364 day calendar year was easier to implement,
leaving one day every year open for numerically
matching X Days & Years.
Lunar/solar separation time became 210-years for every 400-Year
Baktun Cycle. Time splitting divides 210-years in two
equal halves and attributes 105-years to the lunar-side and
105-years to the solar-side. The Mayan 104-year Venus
Round increments by matching X Days
& Years in a single term. The Mayan
104-Year Venus Round adapts from a 105-Year Venus
Round in Mesopotamia. Seth Primary 105-Year
Venus Round Age begets Enos to answer a 105-Year
Solar-Side time split and the Venus issue
simultaneously. Going further, two 400-Year
Baktun Cycles add together to produce repeating 800-Year
Generation Cycles 1-6.
The ages of Adam and Seth reveal a
discovery that someday may change how archaeologists address
traditional chronology. Calendar systems map world
chronology according to different beginnings. Some follow
Jewish tradition and put the Creation date at 5,766 years
ago or about 3,761 years BCE. Others credit Archbishop
Ussher with calculating in 1,701 AD that Creation took place
in 4,004 BCE. The Egyptian Calendar begins between 4,236 BCE
and 4,241 BCE, along with Egyptian mythology explaining the
world's Creation. Starting dates depend on star observation
in Egypt, since that is the only way primal society had to
mark calendar years. Another plan estimates the starting
Mayan Calendar date to be 3,113 BCE. Shared calendar
characteristics enable deeper inspection of prehistoric time
reckoning. Sacred texts and current science provide clues
needed to reconstruct the oldest biblical history. Important
traits gathered from past calendar time streams become
braided together to obtain hybrid insight. Three ancient
calendar systems form the world's oldest trunk line of
calendar science. God
used a lunar/solar calendar to write listed ages for the
Antediluvian Patriarchs. The family of Adam heralds new
chronology from the earliest time.
We need to recognize this material was the ancient religion.
Ideas and fixations worshiped eons ago give us broader
historical appreciation. Countless people lived to uphold
paramount holidays prescribed by their calendar. The Jewish
calendar still appoints feasts and festivals in modern
times. Mesoamerican celebrations carry heritage that teaches
visitors the ancient spirituality. Babylonian astrology and
astronomy give us an early view of scientific disciplines.
Egyptology continues to amaze everyone with spectacular
finds. Finally, the impact of the Holy Bible is far and ranging upon modern
society. Scholars and theologians have scoured these
scriptures and written volumes. There are more questions

the earliest Bible calendar -- the Antediluvian

Modern views of very old Antediluvian
Patriarch ages appear in a different light.
Perspectives offered by lunar/solar calendars impart new
interpretations. Some help comes from published
Mesoamerican Calendar information. Other pieces
come from alternative sacred texts such as the
Book of Enoch and Book of Jubilees. Time Emits
strives to maintain accepted terminology where
applicable. Keeping geographical lore and religious
principles in mind, we are able to employ lunar/solar
calendars that penetrate to the past extreme. The Antediluvian
Patriarchs provide historians with a calendar
sequence lasting literally thousands of years. Our task
is to understand the system they once used.
