According to some conspiracy
theorists and historians . . . some of whom have questionable credentials, for
what it’s worth . . . this might NOT be the year 2019. It actually might
be 1722. So why do they think we’re off by 297 years? There are three
theories . . .
1. Some say that the
period between the eighth and 11th centuries are VERY poorly documented.
The chronology doesn’t add up and it seems like there are too many
inconsistencies for it really to be 300 years.
2. In the 1500s, the
Pope switched from the Julian calendar to the Gregorian calendar. That
threw everything off, and some time could’ve disappeared in the process.
3. And one of the
leading voices in the “it’s 1722” camp says documents from the
seventh through 10th century seem to be forged . . . so none of it was real.
….For what it’s worth,
mainstream historians reject ALL of this . . . but I still like speculating
