The Human Origin Story Has Changed Again, Thanks to New Discovery in Algeria

Unlike with the current solar calendar in which dates can be predetermined and arranged in advance, this lunar calendar (in many cases) tends to have its dates determined by the physical sighting of the moon. One could argue that moon phases for different parts of the world can be scientifically calculated and predetermined, but for the common man on the streets (in most countries) sighting the moon or hearing it has been sighted by many other people is a guaranteed-enough method…

One common problem with modern lunar calendars, however, is that many publishers tend to pick a set of predetermined dates (using the solar calendar dates) and use them. This leads to a calendar becoming basically useless at any point a moon sighting is used leading to the end and start dates of the months differing from that printed on the calendar. If the calendar states a month ends on the 30th day but the moon is spotted on the 29th night, the rest of the dates on that calendar have basically become incorrect to the person using the moon sighting.
