The religious basis of calendars around the world: There are many religious calendars in existence, but each is normally in use in one region of the world — typically by followers of a single religion. Almost all of the world’s religious calendars are based on religion, astrology, or myth: The Baha’i calendar is based on the date that the Bab declared that a new manifestation of God would appear. The Creativity Movement , a racist, sexist and homophobic religious group, bases their calendar on the date when their religious book was published. The Hindu calendar is based on a planetary alignment in BCE. The Jewish calendar is based on their belief in the date of creation. The Mayan calendar was based on the day that they believed that Venus was born.

History of the use of BCE, CE, AD, BC to identify dates. So, unless one is a lion, a Buddhist, or student of ancient Roman civilization, the basis for 1 CE and 1 BCE remains an arbitrary selection.
It is commonly accepted that in BC, at the time of the unification, Ch’in introduced the Pan pronounced “Ban” Liang coinage, discontinuing knife and spade coinage. This is by no means certain and we find it difficult to accept, believing the coinage of this period is more complex and knife and spade coinage was phased out gradually. This series is difficult to classify, with specimens occurring at weights from 2 to 18 grams but rarely over 12 grams , and diameters from 14 to over 34 mm.
Having examined a number of Pan Liang hoards, we found most specimens within a single hoard will be of uniform diameter but the weight can vary significantly. This had lead us to believe the coins diameter is the important factor in determining the period or issue. Unfortunately, not enough dateable hoard or archeological evidence currently exists to work out the exact classification of the Pan Liang series, but the Records of Han provide a clue, stating that heavy Pan Liang were cast until about BC.
We believe this refers to the larger specimens over 30 mm which range between 6 and 12 grams but averaging 7 to 8 grams or 15 shu. This could make the earliest issues contemporaries of the Ming-Huo Round Coin Series , but since they were cast to the heavy standard down to BC, it may not be possible to differentiate between the Zhou, Ch’in and early Han dynasty issues. Much research is needed on this area. Most references suggest that the large Pan Liang coins were the principle coinage of the Chin Dynasty, but a problem arose; they are rather scarce, in fact they have a higher scarcity than ming knifes and square foot spades.
If they really had been the principle coinage of China for over 75 years, they should be fairly common. This takes us back to our earlier theory that square-foot spades, and possibly ming knifes, were still in use throughout much of the Ch’in period, and may in fact have been the principle coinage of Ch’in.
