When does time begin?
Does it begin with a clock?
With a calendar?
~ 3372 BC is the first date in the Mayan calendar.
~ 3760 BC is the earliest date in the Jewish calendar
~ 4236 BC is the first date in the Egyptian calendar.
Does time have many beginnings? Can there be more than one start?
Did time start 7000 years ago with a walled Jericho and Mesopotamian cities?
Did it start more than 10,000 years ago with the marvelous cave art of Spain and France?
How does time begin? With civilization? With art? With a calendar?
With your birthday? Did men do it?

"It's been like that from the beginning of time." Is there more than one time, more than one beginning? I guess we have to decide what that "it" refers to.

When 'they' say the beginning of time could they mean the time that homo sapiens began to move and groove 30,000 or 40,000 years ago. Could they mean 300,000 years ago when giants roamed? Just what the heck are they talking about.

Should we be clear about when time begins before we ask where time exists?


  1. Why did the three calendars mentioned begin within less than a thousand years of each other?

  2. I don't know? What else was happening on and around the earth in that period???
