Discovering the tropics and re-discovering the temperates
Only use of February in the temperates and Yekatit in the tropics is natural and scientific.
Ø Question one: given that one day is one rotation of earth, what is the difference between Yekatit and February?
o Answer: Yekatit does reveal 30 faster rotations of the tropics,
o Where as February reveals 28 or 29 slower rotations of the temperates.
Ø Question two, given that month is one of the subset of 12 calendar months (year of 365 or 366 days): what is the difference between Yekatit and February?
o Answer: Yekatit is the sixth month of the year in the tropics;
o Whereas, February is the second month of the year in the temperates.
Ø Question three: given the number of day each month has is derived from the number of days’ takes one revolution of “moon” to round the earth or full month is observed in every 29.5 days. Thus 12 lunar months are divided into 6 of 29 and 6 of 30 days. What is the difference between Yekatit and February?
o Answer the month Yekatit is the most scientific in the sense that the number of days it has is 30, and it is determined by dividing 365 or 366 days by 12 months. Besides the number of days Yekatit has both in an ordinary and leap year is equivalent to one of the sixth lunar month (30 days).
o Whereas the month February is not scientific in the sense that the number of days it has is 28 (ordinary year) or 29 (leap year) are arbitrarily determined.
