Was glad to learn about the World Calendar, and hope
that it is soon adopted by the various countries.

I like it, but the International Fixed Calendar is more interesting

The World Calendar may still be
the best calendar reform option. It seems to draw the least
amount of objections that may allow for eventual adoption.
Yet, a leap-week calendar may also be worth more consideration.
Soon we'll need to have a serious discussion about bringing
this issue back to the U.S. Congress (and other international
governmental bodies) for debate. Perhaps after a, hopefully,
resolved Middle East/Iraq situation, and peaceful relations
elsewhere this can occur. The next (I think) date after 2006
that the World Calendar could be easily implemented would
be 2017; a nice "dozen years" from 2005. Please
contact me via my email address for further discussion on
this issue and the next steps to be taken. -Bob Gardin, Cleveland,

and have found that there is a common computer calculation
base for the Gregorian, the Julian and the World Calendars.

thing your association appears to not deal with is year. When
is the UN going to develop a nonreligious year system?

upon The World Calendar through a Uni assignment, math question.
I then chose to do calendars in may SSE inquiry report and
found the information collected fascinating. The World Calendar is not publicly known; it should be out there and
yes promoting so that we can modernize the calendar to suit

what you intend! Question: where does this calendar have the
365th day of the year (the blank day)? Is that before the
1st of Jan.? Or is it in the middle of the year? Please let
me know! Second question: wasn't this idea earlier proposed
by the Frenchman Armelin? (Why is his name not mentioned as
the real inventor?) Third question: Please add "U.S.A."
to your address, because you don't exist (I suppose) only
for your own country. Why is your site only in English? The
world is bigger than the U.S.A. ...! I hope to hear soon from
you! Guus J. den Besten Noorderstraat 4 NL - 9635 TG Noordbroek

Molly and friends: Thanks for keeping the World Calendar vision
alive! I have been a persistent supporter ever since I first
read about it in a kid's science book 35 years ago - doing
my best to publicize it through magazine articles and website
links, etc. A couple of years ago, I was in contact with Norman
who were so kind to send me plenty of material. He didn't
say it straight out, but I clearly
sensed the need for a new commitment for this initiative.
It's a pity that causes such as Calendar reform get so low
priority in the current, quite turbulent world of ours. Especially
as it has two noble purposes - making our daily lives easier
and as a manifestation of world peace & unity. There must
be something that could be done to revive and expand the interest
in the World Calendar beyond it's current limited number of
supporters. Perhaps starting among the kids and youths which
will take over this planet after us? As always, I'll be happy
to give my support to IWCA and engage in any other way I possibly
can. Hans L.D.G. Starlife President, Cosmica Network

for putting the Guestbook back up! I am a proponent of calendar.
I support both the efforts for the World Calendar and the
International Fixed Calendar. I suggest that proponents of
both calendars unite in selecting a common day for the Year
Day and common day for the Leap Day. If that is done, then
departments and individuals in the same organization and households
can view the calendar year in both 12 month and 13 month formats,
without conflicts over what days the Year Day and Leap Day
(World Days) fall on it. If the calendar reformers can unite
on at least those two matters, calendar reform can be much
more effectively promoted. Observing the Year Day on New Year's
Day and the Leap Day on the last day of the Leap Year is one
way to do this. This would be a change for both the World
Calendar and the International Fixed Calendar, but neither
calendar would be compromised as a result of the change. Further,
both calendars would be much more effectively promoted by
both camps speaking in the same voice in this matter.

would be a big advantage for the whole world, to simply the
current gregorian calendar especially for industries, banking
treatment. The problem is, no one can imagine how easy a
lot of things would be if we had already the simplified world
calendar. The current one, introduced in 1582 had also a very
long time until the last country (china)implemented it in
1949, 367 years later!!! I hope it will be sooner and quicker
until the new world Calendar wins recognition in our world.
What can I do to promote the idea?

am one the proponent for the reform of the present Gregorian
calendar. A calendar for the whole world (for all humans of
all nations and faith directions). I employ me also with chronology
and on my homepage (http://www.kalendersysteme.de) the most
diverse calendar systems (also the world calendar) explained.
For some days "calendar reform suggestion" is on
the homepage in the forum the project. In this project the
most diverse suggestions are to be discussed. The idea is
to be developed it from all discussion contributions sometime
once a new calendar reform suggestion and/or to be improved
an existing suggestion. I am convinced of which more fueher
or later a new calendar for the whole world is introduced.
By the way on your homepage
(http://www.worldcalendar.org) is an error: The reference
for this guest book must (at present: http://www.worldcalendar.org/guestbook/guestbook.html)
are not called as follows there: http://www.worldcalendar.org/guestbook.html

mit Chronologie und habe auf meiner Homepage (http://www.kalendersysteme.de)
die verschiedensten Kalendersysteme (auch den Weltkalender)

im Forum das Projekt "Kalenderreformvorschlag".
In diesem Projekt sollen die verschiedensten Vorschläge diskutiert
werden. Die Idee ist es aus allen Diskussionsbeiträgen irgendwann
einmal ein neuer Kalenderreformvorschlag zu entwickeln beziehungsweise
einen vorhandenen Vorschlag zu verbessern. Ich bin überzeugt
davon, das füher oder später ein neuer Kalender für die ganze
Welt eingeführt wird.

understand the need to standardize the whole world into 1-timezone-1-calendar-1-nation-1-religion
but aren't we forgetting that we are loosing variety, differences
between cultures believes and interests?
recommend the book "Pip Pip" as a vital reading
on the subject of our NUMBered time/calendaric system. Also,
if you're a creative who has an interesting thoughts on time,

strongly agree with the adaptation to the World Calendar.
I would also like to see the year changed from 2001 to start
from whenever the world did. I might not be exact, but then
how accurate do we really know the birth of Jesus!

met an autistic man was I was a little kid. He told me the
day that I was born on (Thursday) after I told him the date.
It was a skill of his. He also had an uncanny recollection
of baseball games but I don't remember the particulars. It
was a long time ago. Anyway, how much easier his life will

issue often neglected or poorly addressed by calendar reformers
is when should festivals fixed in the old calendar be celebrated
in the new calendar? SAME DAY or SAME DATE? For the World
Calendar, this does not matter for the Months of September
to February inclusive. For other months a SAME DATE festival
may be up to 2 days later or occur on one of the few missing
dates. SAME DAY festivals would for these months require new
dates to memorise. Cheers, Karl

main objection to the World calendar is that it does not preserve
the traditional uninterrupted week, which is important to
religious groups. With leap-week calendars (such as the Civil
Bonavian, look it up) one gets all the advantages you list
for the World Calendar, plus the advantage that all months
start on the same weekday, and preserving the traditional
week. IMHO such a calendar is the only one which may eventually
be accepted; it's already heralded by the wide acceptance
of ISO week numbering.

Here is how to get this calendar moving: a)obtain control
Microsoft. b) Install the world calendar on the operating
system and tell anyone who objects to take a hike. That will
do it. So who is this great grandma of yours, and how did
you find her? Dave
