Date and Time
Posted by Stuart Ronaldson on 12 March 2017 05:51 am

The National assembly has determined that the Government of The United States of America should adopt and use Coordinated Universal Time (UTC), with a 365 day year with the year count starting at (EVENT?). A translation of the date or time should be provided when necessary (see links below for more information).

Date

Formally, the date is expressed as a number between 1 and 365, beginning at the Vernal equinox. The day or date is expressed by referencing the specific day of the current year. The year is expressed in the year of Yahweh. The Translation Date, when necessary, follows the date reference in parenthesis.

eg. the 358th day in the year of Yahweh, 6018 (March 11, 2017)

 

Time

The Government expresses time using Universal Time Coordinated (UTC).

There are 24 time zones across the globe (24 hours in each day). The Universal Time Coordinated (+00 UTC) starts at Greenwich, England, so depending on where you are on the globe, you add or subtract hours from the UTC time. When UTC is a single digit, it is good form to add a “0” as a place-holder for consistency and to avoid possible alterations:
8 UTC = bad form
08 UTC = better

So, 14 UTC = 2 PM Greenwich time (hour 14 of the 24 hours in a day)

The approximate center of the metes and bounds of The United States of America falls into UTC zone (-6). Thus, we subtract 6 hours from the Greenwich hour (14) to get the Government local hour of 8 (14-6=8)

8 is less than 12 (noon) so we know it is AM. There is no need to reference AM or PM

so, 8 AM CST is expressed: 14 UTC (-6)

and 3 AM CST is expressed 09 UTC (-6)

and 8:25 PM CST is expressed 20:25 UTC (-6)
