3200 BC and Ancient Calendars




SPECIAL NOTE: The author of this website originally set out to write a book entitled simply “3200 BC.” For five years he collected data from hundreds of sources sure that with enough input he could figure out what happened then. It was a labor of love. It has only been in the past few months that he finally discovered what happened. So it is with great joy that I share this page with you now. It turns out the title of the book was wrong. The actual event occurred in or around 3106 BC. Knowing exactly what happened and when is rewarding beyond measure. The only thing that has given me more pleasure in life is where this research led me, which is to this website. Mt next conquest will be to learn what really happened in 9500 BC. I thing it may have something to do with the birth of Venus.


What happened from 3200 to 3100 BC?

Something profound happened at the start of the Mesoamerican Long Count calendar and the Yuga calendar of India. The following is my favorite paper of all time on this subject:

What Really Happened in 3100 BC – and Where Are We Headed Now? by Bruce Scofield

I strongly suggest you stop and read this paper. It’s a great read. The following link from Stanford University is much more technical, but full of important data:

Appendix: What on Earth Happened in 3200 BC?

Some explanation is required. The lettered bullets on the left-hand side of the page are explaining the peaks and troughs in the collections of charts that is the graphic on the right-hand side of the page.

The Start of the Fifth and Last Great Cycle

Believing everything I do regarding the calendar end date, I work backwards 2160 orbits of Jupiter from December 21, 2018 to the start of the calendar in 23,603 BC. This places the start of the last Great Cycle or Age at 3106 BC in perfect agreement with the ancient Yuga Calendar of India. Such an agreement cannot be easily ignored. It strongly suggest that orbits of Jupiter is in fact the basic unit of measurement used.

The Mesoamerican (Mayan) Long Count calendar is generally thought to begin on August 11, 3114 BC. The “GMT correlation” date of December 21, 2012 is accurate. It is the end of thirteen baktuns. The problem is that thirteen baktuns is not a date.





The Yuga Calendar of India

The following paper by Christian Irigaray is the most authoritative work I can find on the start date of the ancient Yuga calendar of India. The original PDF was downloaded from www.academia.edu (awaiting permission)


In this paper, the author concludes

There is no question from the descriptions offered in the Mahabharata that the date given for the event that signaled turning of the Age is April 20, 3105 BC. It is the only date that matches the planetary configuration of the texts… [emphasis added]
