A year in the OT and to the Hebrews was a lunar year of 360 days. They added months at special times to keep the dates and seasons lined up. Our 365 day calendar came much later.

Not sure where you got this information. The Hebrew calendar was a solar/lunar mix.

"An ordinary (non-leap) year has 353, 354, or 355 days. A leap year has 383, 384, or 385 days. The three lengths of the years are termed, “deficient”, “regular”, and “complete”, respectively. An ordinary year has 12 months, a leap year has 13 months.
Every month starts (approximately) on the day of a new moon."
Source: The Hebrew Calendar


There are other sources that confirm this. A year is still a year no matter how you make up for days missed especially when you are looking at 490 years. None of the Hebrew years was ever 360 days. There is even a Hebrew calculator online if you want to trace it back. As another poster mentioned, the major problem is that there is really no way to tell the starting point. Jews suggest it was the NEED to rebuild which would be after the 1st temple was destroyed. Christians suggest it was the DECREE to rebuild which could have been any 1 of 4 decrees.


Most Christians choose the decree issued in 444BC but how can that be when 490 years later is 46AD. But miraculously if you leave off the last week and change it to 360 days per year it calculates to 32AD.


That's some scary math.

The end of the world actually happened last Friday, but God kept some of earth's population alive in a simulated reality that looks like nothing happened.

But...but.... California didn't break off and fall into the ocean. The fundamentalists really, really, really wanted that to happen. They'll be so disappointed the end came and they didn't get to enjoy all the heathens getting sent to a horrible death.

It happened but wasn't recorded because God duplicated the earth and this is the one we live. Tomorrow is the sequel.
