Why should we adopt the new calendar 'Holocene calendar (HE)' that replaces the Christian era?

The most widely used calendar in the world '

AD has been used is,' but, 'in the calendar of the new concept was proposed in 1993 mankind AD There is a thing called (Human Era)'. In addition to the year 10000 the year has become a How to count the year of eliminating the concept of 'BC', although such as a conventional day of the week or month you have the feature that the ready-to-use, Kurzgesagt the 'why' humanity AD 』Is it necessary to adopt? ' Is released with an illustration.

A New History for Humanity – The Human Era --YouTube

Mankind was the first to rule the earth, and at first he lived by hunting animals as a hunting race.

Mankind soon began to farm ...

In modern times, many civilizations have been invented that were unthinkable in the past.

The Christian era, whose first year is the year after the year when Jesus Christ was born, is one of the inventions of mankind, but Kurzgesagt says that the use of the Christian era will be an outdated way of thinking that is no longer suitable for the present age. I will.

It is said that the idea of 'BC', which represents the year before 1 AD, is a factor that hinders understanding when looking back on the history of humankind.

During BC, humankind continued to develop all over the world, and there were many important events. Therefore, there is an idea that is not based on Jesus Christ but on the origin of civilization.

The standard of the calendar in this way of thinking is 12,000 years before the construction of 'the first temple of mankind'.

It is known that hundreds of people lived in groups on the hills of southern Anatolia 12,000 years ago.

12,000 years ago, humankind was a hunting race with no knowledge of agriculture or metalworking.

The only tools they had were stone tools made of stone and wood, but they built the first megastructure in human history 7,000 years before the first pyramids were built.

That is '

Göbeklitepe '. The height of the stone pillars that make up it is 6m, and the total weight is 40 tons. The hill with the ruins is 15m high and 300m in diameter.

Pictograms and fantasy creatures were carved on the stone pillars.

However, it is still unknown how humans in the

Stone Age were able to build such a large-scale archaeological site.

The reason why Gobeklitepe was built is not well understood, but the hypothesis that it is the first temple of mankind dedicated to God is predominant.

It is known that many buildings were built in the same area, including this temple. Mankind's first temple is a rational starting point for mankind's new calendar.

This idea is one of the calendar methods proposed by the geologist Cesare Emiliani in 1993 and is called the 'Human Era'. Human Era is abbreviated as 'HE'.

The Holocene calendar is expressed by adding '10,000 years' to the Christian era, so for example, the year 2017 is 'Holocene calendar 12017 (12017 HE)'. Since the days and months that have already been established remain the same, the feature is that the existing calendar can be used as it is with a little modification.

If the Holocene calendar is adopted, the writing style of human history textbooks will be renewed. The beginning of the calendar is the year when Gobeklitepe was built. The Christian era starts from the year 1, but the human era starts from the year 0 because of the convenience of converting BC.

In the 1000th year of the

Holocene calendar, ' Jericho ', which is considered to be the first town of humankind, will appear. It took 1000 years from the beginning of human history to the formation of a town.

It is known that in 2000 AD, agriculture became widespread all over the world, and human beings lived in sedentism everywhere.

Evidence has also been found of trade at that time, thousands of kilometers apart. The world population at this time is estimated to be about 5 million, which is a little smaller than the population of modern London.

In the 3000th year of the Holocene calendar, the use of pottery became popular.

It was around this time that the first cultural community of humankind was born in China, India, and the

Fertile Crescent .

Around 4000 AD, human beings began to process copper and tin for the first time to handle metals ...

Entered the 5000 AD of the human race, which is the

Bronze Age . The first original book of mankind was found, and the 'wheel' was also invented.

Around the same time, in South America, the Chinchoros made mummies 2000 years before Egypt.

In the 7000 AD, the Indus Valley Civilization, the

Minoan Civilization , the Egyptian Civilization, and the Mesopotamian Civilization appeared.

It is known that Stonehenge was built in England at the same time.

It was around the time when the oldest dynasty, '

Yin, ' whose existence was confirmed in China, began.

The '

Iceman ' found in the glacier is also from this era.

The world population has grown to more than 30 million, and this is where the era called 'History of Mankind' begins.

From around 8000 AD, advanced civilizations have emerged all over the world, and many legends have been written down.

In the United States, the

Olmec civilization known for the giant stone head statue appears ...

It was around this time that

Trojan horses, which were not malware, were used.

Huge cities have appeared one after another everywhere ...

Cities other than Egypt have been destroyed, and hundreds of years of records of this era have been lost.

Western culture developed from around 9500 AD, and the

Persian War broke out by the ancient Greek city-state (Police). To mankind AD around 9700 years, the famous Alexander the Great Persian kingdom is now decided to destruction by the hands of (Alexander the Great).

100 years later, the Roman Empire defeated Carthage in the

Punic Wars , and the Roman Empire climbed to a world-class position.


Caesar was killed in 9956 AD ...

The world population has reached about 300 million.

A wide variety of history has been spelled out until the year 10000 BC, but in the Christian era, this is '1 BC'. After that, the year 1 AD is converted to the year 10001 AD, and the year 2 AD is converted to the year 10002 AD.

Approximately 2000 years after the 10000 AD, humans developed by the time they reached the moon, all of which began when humans built temples 12,000 years ago. Looking at the Holocene calendar in this way, it is clear that the period before the 'era' was expressed in a rather compressed manner.

The movie ends with 'Then, good 1 2017!' In addition, Kurzgesagt has already created a 'holocene calendar', and those who want it can purchase it from the website for $ 25 (about 2800 yen).
