            If we ever discover an oldest construction we just have to readjust the calendar, a testimony of science marching on makes it even cooler


            Also, maybe the bronze age civilizations disappeared because of a drought? Egypt was already dependent solely on the nile so it would not affect them but it would destroy most other civilizations

                          This some dumb shit, why go through all the work to change all are shit in electronics and stuff that’s already set just for a single structure we found, what happens when we find an older structure, do we switch are calendars again to make that 0? No it’s just a stupid thing to build calendars around especially with all the things you have to change to do it.

                                    Its so weird now the future humans will be so advanced and they'll look back at our civilization and have the same reaction as we are having rn

                                        We don't even know the exact age of the structure, just an estimation. And we might find older buildings anyway. So will we change the calendar each time?
                                        I don't see any logic in that idea. As for the idea of "inclusiveness", i never met anyone who had a problem with our calendar but the most radical militants in western countries on Twitter. So if it's political : it goes into the trashcan, where it belongs.

                                              I guess my college professor was wrong. When he gave us the formula to solve an ask to calculate the population of people from BC to AD. Turns out the question wasn't even asked correctly is 12019 not 2019. I guess I'll be getting some extra points from my last test after all. Time to go stump the professor with Cesare Emiliani. 😆

You also don't do that without some sort of agricultural technology established to support a large workforce. There's a lot more to the story, and the idea that they built that structure and nothing else for a thousand years is absurd. There is so much we don't know, and I strongly suspect that most of our ideas about the period from 10000 BC or so to the classical period is way, way off.
