"I am the God of Abraham" - Miracle of 360 Days per Year

Miracle of 360 Days per Year

One year is remarkably about 360 days but not 350 days or 370 days.

That is why the Sumerians developed a numbering system based on 60 more than 5000 years ago.  Accordingly they divided a day into 6 that was further divided by four, the first half and the second half of each of the night and the day times, namely 24 hours.

These numbers 360 and 24 are still used today as basses for counting days per year and hours per day.  We also measure the angle of a circle as 360 degrees.

We are still under an influence of the Sumerian Civilization.  And, Abraham was born around the Sumerian city Ur about 4000 years ago.  He must have been also under the Sumerian civilization.  Abraham must have also known that a year consists of 360 days and a day consists of 24 hours.

The fact that 360 and 24 are so convenient as bases for our modern lives implies that the 60-based numbering system allowed the Sumerians and other ancient people to develop their versions of science and culture.  The human sense to numerals or number symbols must have been developed so well as one year has 360 days almost.  If it had been 350 days or 370 days, the Sumerian civilization and other ancient civilization, including the ancient Greek civilization, had not been so well developed in a sophisticated manner.

Put simply, it is a miracle that one year on the earth has 360 days.  It is as if God had set it so to allow mankind to develop their intellectual power so smoothly.

Mathematics started to begin when Sumerians found that one year is 360 days almost.  And it must be God who had set it so.

However it is known scientifically that one year of the earth 350 million years ago was 400 days.  When the Pangaea Continent was formed 250 million years ago, along with the emergence of dinosaurs, the number of days per year suddenly decreased to 360 days almost eventually.

The number of days per year on the earth in the past determined from coral fossils.
(The unity of the numbers on the upper horizontal line is a hundred of million years ago.
The numbers on the right vertical axis are days per year.)

Anyway December 25 is almost the 360th day of a year.  So, one of the biggest Christmas present from God to the mankind must be His setting to the number of days per year at 360 days or so for development of civilization of mankind.

Mar 12:26 And as touching the dead, that they rise: have ye not read in the book of Moses, how in the bush God spake unto him, saying, I am the God of Abraham, and the God of Isaac, and the God of Jacob?
Mar 12:27 He is not the God of the dead, but the God of the living: ye therefore do greatly err.
