Start of the Calendar - December 25, 3117 BC

In my work the alleged start of the Pharaonic Egyptian, Hindu (Vedic) and Maya calendar(s) is December 25, 3117 BC.

That date is based on many years of analysis of Pharaonic
Egpytian dynasties and other sources - e.g. Sumerian artifacts, or the Maya
and Hindu calendars, etc., which are currently and erroneously
thought to start in 3114 BC and 3012 BC respectively - see e.g.

http://webexhibits.org/calendars/calendar-ancient.html

as well as on the basis of a study of solar eclipses and on the way
the megaliths mark the sky at megalithic sties. Due to precession,
the sky "moves" - as seen from the earth - in a cycle of ca. 26,000
years, so that the positions of the solstices and equinoxes in the
sky of stars (as marked e.g. on the megaliths) also move. If a
solstice or equinox is marked on an ancient stone as taking place
within a given constellation, the date can be computed. There is a
lot of information at http://www.megaliths.net on this but for the
calendar in particular see:

This is complicated stuff. For now, my analysis must be considered
very speculative, until or unless it is confirmed down the road by
other researchers. The Maya scholars do not budge from their August
3114 BC date, but as I show at
http://www.lexiline.com/lexiline/lexi75.htm
they are clearly in error.

    Both book volumes contain the following basic book description:
    "Alice Cunningham Fletcher observed in her 1902 publication in the American Anthropologist
    that there is ample evidence that some ancient cultures in Native America, e.g. the Pawnee in Nebraska,
    geographically located their villages according to patterns seen in stars of the heavens.
    See Alice C. Fletcher, Star Cult Among the Pawnee--A Preliminary Report,
    American Anthropologist, 4, 730-736, 1902.
    Ralph N. Buckstaff wrote:
    "These Indians recognized the constellations as we do, also the important stars,
    drawing them according to their magnitude.
    The groups were placed with a great deal of thought and care and show long study.
    ... They were keen observers....
    The Pawnee Indians must have had a knowledge of astronomy comparable to that of the early white men."
    See Ralph N. Buckstaff, Stars and Constellations of a Pawnee Sky Map,
    American Anthropologist, Vol. 29, Nr. 2, April-June 1927, pp. 279-285, 1927.
    In our book, we take these observations one level further
    and show that megalithic sites and petroglyphic rock carving and pictographic rock art in Native America,
    together with mounds and earthworks, were made to represent territorial geographic landmarks
    placed according to the stars of the sky using the ready map of the starry sky
    in the hermetic tradition, "as above, so below".
    That mirror image of the heavens on terrestrial land is the "Sky Earth" of Native America,
    whose "rock stars" are the real stars of the heavens, "immortalized" by rock art petroglyphs, pictographs,
    cave paintings, earthworks and mounds of various kinds (stone, earth, shells) on our Earth.
    These landmarks were placed systematically in North America, Central America (Meso-America) and South America
    and can to a large degree be reconstructed as the Sky Earth of Native America."
