This section is devoted to the name of the 12 months neutral calendar and is associated with traditional creeds and cultures. The history of mankind – is a history of wars and conflicts and often on religious grounds. These circumstances are already raising the question of the well-being of human civilization. In this regard, a separate approach to the name of the months is due to the desire for tolerance in our multi – cultural society.
In the process of researching world religions and cultures, a chronological cycle has been formed, called the “Historical cycle of Adam and Eve”, which reveals the related relationship between Abrahamic religions (the religion of the book). This cycle is Alpha and Omega from the biblical creation of the “material world” and the biblical progenitors of humanity – Adam and Eve, then through the centuries-old historical path of the formation of the “spiritual world” to the crown of divine providence – the restored Adam and Eve. Fans of the neutral calendar are convinced that the stabilization of international relations in the third millennium will begin with a constructive dialogue between representatives of traditional world religions, and first of all between the young confessions of the “Historical cycle of Adam and Eve”.
It is necessary to make a reservation that the purpose of studying this cycle is the intention to reveal its peace-building potential in the historical relationship of these religions. It should be emphasized that the project does not focus on the synthesis of different cultures; The project advocates the maintenance of purity of spiritual and moral values and the observance of the main commandments within the framework of its original, traditional culture. The diversity of cultures is meant to transform our spiritual world, and not serve as a pretext for inappropriate strife. The content of the historical cycle does not affect the internal structure and parameters of the calendar; therefore, this presentation does not initially have a goal to go deeper into the theology and theosophy. The project is focused on supporting the priorities of the third millennium, related to environmental, economic, as well as peacemaking issues, aimed at the systematic development of harmonious international relations based on universal human values. Fans of the neutral calendar of the whole world, with the support of the UN and other constructive forces, are called upon to contribute to the achievement of these goals by popularizing «NС», along with other peacemaking projects.
In the process of working on the “NC” project, the so-called “etiquette of tolerance” was formed, rooted in the meaning of tolerance in the UN definition. In accordance with the Declaration of Principles of Tolerance (UNESCO, 1995), tolerance is defined as follows: “the value and social norm of civil society, manifested in the right of all individuals of civil society to be different, ensuring sustainable harmony between different faiths, political, ethnic and other social groups respect for the diversity of different world cultures, civilizations and peoples, readiness for understanding and cooperation with people differing in appearance, language, beliefs, production recently and beliefs. “
The characteristic definition of tolerance in the preamble of the UN Charter (international treaty of June 26, 1945, the city of San Francisco) reads as follows: “Tolerance and live together, in peace with each other, as good neighbors.”
12 months name of the neutral calendar
In comparison with one of the most promising calendar projects, i.e. with the project “Y2K” – (millennium), which has the classic name for months, the project “Neutral” has a separate name for the months, which gives it an international status.
As follows from the above table, due to the disproportionate distribution of the number of days in months, there is an inappropriate rush of the Gregorian calendar in the spring and summer months of the year. Fortunately, in the autumn and winter months of the year (6 months in order), the dates with a parallel comparison of these styles coincide one to one. As already mentioned in the previous section, the name of the months “Neutral”, in addition to the peacekeeping factor, has a very important practical plus, since the project with the classic name of the months will confuse the styles in the implementation of the calendar reform. “NС” lovers are confident that this project hides an endless and still unexplored potential, and systematic work in this direction will yield positive results and will benefit contemporaries, our descendants and all future generations.
Explanation to the “historical cycle of Adam and Eve”
The table of this cycle is compiled in chronological order, according to the historical precedence of creeds. As mentioned earlier, when it was compiled, in addition to the well-known kinship of Abrahamic creeds, a logical orientation was found, which is based on the “Holy Land”, then through the next “spiritual elements” to the “Holy Sun”, and, as the culmination of this story, to the crown God’s providence – Adam and Eve. The literal interpretation of the biblical creation of the world is well known and suits some. As for the secret (allegorical) approach to this issue, it seems to others that it is more acceptable and attractive, and therefore has a full right to exist.
In the third millennium, even schoolchildren know that the birth of human civilization did not occur 6–7 thousand years ago, but is estimated to be millions of years BC. The formation of the solar system and our planet is generally estimated at billions of years. So why is the biblical description of the creation of the world, dating back to about seven thousand years, to this day is at the forefront for all Abrahamic creeds? Yes, all because this text contains the Divine Purpose and the mystery of the providence of our Creator, as well as His intentions regarding humanity as the crown of His creation.
Let’s talk about the secret approach to the biblical (six-day) creation of the world. From the standpoint of the innermost meaning, this event is God’s guidance, according to which, through His Messengers, a “spiritual world” for mankind took place. At first glance, the ~ six thousand-year history of the creation of the “spiritual world”, consistently from the “Holy Land” to the “Holy Sun of Truth”, may seem untenable, but analyzing the characteristics of religions that feed the roots from the biblical Adam and Eve, begins to take on a logical , peace-building basis. Applying an allegorical approach to the original biblical events, it is possible to comprehend how modern humanity, overcoming the era of “the knowledge of good and evil”, makes it possible to achieve the “tree of life” and in the coming millennium, strive for the triumph of a harmoniously developed civilization and the Divine world order.
Without going into historical details, it follows that the process of recovery after a biblical sin begins with the family of Noah. Then comes the regenerative process of the genus of Abraham. Further, the Prophet Moses leads the people of Israel from Egyptian captivity to the “Holy Land” of the Promised. Gospel events related to John the Baptist and the baptism of water in the Jordan River indicate the sequence of the “historical cycle” to the level of “Holy Water on Earth”. While imprisoned, John questioned the mission of Jesus Christ, but Jesus himself, in a speech with his disciples, determined the meaning of John more than a prophet (Matt.11).
Since at the creation of the world the Creator separated the water from the water, and the firmament in the middle of the water called the sky, the water that is in the sky is clouds. Delving into the inner meaning of the “historical cycle” and biblical narratives, one can comprehend the walk of Jesus Christ on water and ascension on a cloud (although the properties of water are a great mystery, which has not yet been fully solved by science).
Only by applying an allegorical approach, it is possible to comprehend how the Prophet was able to cut down the Moon with a saber (one of the beliefs preserved in Islam). Allegorically, this may mean that the mission of raising the “spiritual world” to the level of the “Holy Moon in Heaven” was overcome by the Messenger of Allah (peace and blessings be upon Him). A person dedicated to Islam will see in the rituals of this creed a spiritual sequence, from the “Holy Land”, the “Holy Water” to the “Holy Heaven.” Probably, therefore, the believer before prayer, in the absence of water, is instructed to do the cleansing with pure earth, sand. But mainly, the Prophet pointed believers to the heart. It is well known that the Prophet Mohammed defined his mission by serving Allah, therefore, urging people to worship the Creator, He asked not to exalt the name of the Prophet himself, using the title “Abdullah Rasul Allah” in his address to Him, which literally means “Servant of Allah and His Messenger”. The month “Abdullah” in the Russian version of “Neutral” corresponds to the eighth month of the year and is dedicated to the Prophet Muhammad.
The personality of the Bab, who is the Forerunner of Baha’u’llah, is followed by the followers of the Bahá’í creed with the personality of John the Baptist, the Forerunner of Jesus Christ, with the difference that this could be the next level of the “Historical Cycle” – “Holy Water in Heaven”. Bab the Forerunner was executed by the authorities for his sermons. In his writings, Baha’u’llah says: “I came in the shadow of the clouds of glory, and God is endowed with dominion invincible.” He explains that each of God’s Messengers comes to people with their specific mission, illuminating humanity with the Sun of Truth. The tenth month of the year in the Neutral calendar is dedicated to the personality of Baha’u’llah.
Covert over time always becomes apparent and for the centuries-old historical process, the best way to state a true goal – is to use a hidden meaning. As a result, modern humanity has a “spiritual world” in a complete order, in which there is a “Holy Land”; “Holy water on earth”; “Holy Moon”; “Holy Water in Heaven” – clouds; “The Holy Sun of Truth.”
The culmination of God’s works after the creation of the “spiritual world” for humanity is the crown of God’s providence – True Adam and his wife True Eve. According to the Divine Principle, Dr. Moon Sun Myung is the coming of the restored, True Adam, after which a new era of the Complete Testament will come steadily.
All this is to a certain extent interconnected with Theosophy, therefore it would be preferable not to go deep into this specific area of knowledge, but it would be unwise to rule out an allegorical approach to biblical history, and only time will be able to judge the validity of such a judgment.
From Wikipedia. “The book of the Divine Principle is an unprecedented new outlook, a new cosmology, a new outlook on life, a new outlook on conduct and history. It is an integrated Principle, which includes all religions, doctrines and philosophical principles, while maintaining the unique characteristics of each. ” Doing everything to overcome the barriers between religions, Dr. Moon, in his appeals to the whole world, says: “God does not see the differences between denominations and does not participate in minor disputes regarding this or that doctrine. The great heart of God does not distinguish people by nationality and race, and for Him there are no boundaries between states and cultures”.
If we look at our material world as a whole, then the very existence of Man is impossible without earth, water, air, the moon or the sun, but and without Man this world will be incomplete. Everything is interconnected in our world and inherently from nature, and nature requires a very careful attitude towards itself. In the same way, in the “spiritual world,” all “spiritual elements” (creeds) are unconditional, inherent in one thing from another, and must coexist in spiritual harmony. Based on this, every fan of “NC”, adhering to his original tradition and culture, has a free choice. Based on the foregoing, the month of Adam in the neutral calendar leaves free choice for every participant in a peacekeeping project, regardless of his religion or culture.
Divine providence contains a peacemaking plan, the main idea of which is to strengthen religious tolerance and establish harmonious relationships between established creeds, which appeal to virtue and charity. Based on the foregoing, it follows that the goal of Divine conduct is to bring long-awaited harmony to the “spiritual world” of humanity by the time when the “historical cycle of Adam and Eve” is nearing its logical conclusion. Modern humanity, even if divided into various confessional clusters, is enlightened enough to comprehend the course of the historical process. Every sane and honest analyst of the Holy Scriptures recognizes that after the biblical fall into sin the historical process of “knowing good and evil” for the formation of a civilized human society was inevitable.
I also want to draw the attention of contemporaries to the incredible efforts and sacrifices at each stage of the “historical cycle”, which were made in order to build a “spiritual world” for all of modern humanity. Each Messenger of God came with a mission to gradually prepare our world for civilized coexistence. Each traditional religion calls for virtue, love and mercy, and the mission of the Messengers of God is certainly a peacemaking activity, no matter how distorted religion is by radical people. Due to the rise of scientific and technological progress at the present stage of history, it becomes possible to build bridges of understanding between people of different cultures.
Concluding the started topic, I must say that the harmony between science and religion in the new millennium should reach its apogee. It would be desirable to hope that common sense will overcome all prejudices in the name of achieving this goal.
For each of the aforementioned religions, you can find enough information on the Wikipedia pages, but for the uninformed circle of readers, we’ll quote excerpts concerning the young creeds of the “historical cycle of Adam and Eve.”
Baha’i (“Bach” – “glory”, “light”, “brilliance, splendor”) – mono-theistic religion.
Its founder, Baha’u’llah (1817-1892), is revered as the last in the series of “the apparitions of God”, which, in addition to Baha’u’llah, include Abraham, Moses, Buddha, Zarathustra, Krishna, Jesus Christ, Mohammed, the Bab (Forerunner of Baha’u’llah). The World Center is located in Haifa. Bahá’í teachings are based on the teachings of Bab and Mirza Hussein Ali (who identified himself as Bahá’u’lláh). The main topics are the unity of God, the unity of religions and the unity of humanity. Recalling the similar teachings of the previous manifestations of God, Bahá’u’lláh declares that there is only one religion – “the unchanging faith of God, eternal in the past, eternal in the future,” just as in the Quran “religion” refers to any religion of revelation.
The “historical cycle of Adam and Eve” – is a centuries-old process containing a sequence of traditional dogmas related to the so-called “Religions of the Book,” including Judaism, Christianity, Islam, and Baha’i creed. Since not every person has heard of Bahá’í creed, in our case, it is advisable to explain the significance of this religion in the modern world. “The Bahá’í International Community is recognized by the UN as a non-governmental organization with consultative status. It is accredited by the UN Economic and Social Council and the UNICEF International Organization for the Support of Children and cooperates with these organizations in many areas”.
The Bahá’ís, being a young religion consisting in the chronological order of the “historical cycle of Adam and Eve”, embraces all previous traditional world religions, namely Judaism, Christianity, Islam, which are attributed to the Abrahamic religions of the Book ’, as well as Buddhism , Hinduism and Zoroastrianism.
Many countries have beautiful Bahai temples, and in the Holy Land, in the city of Haifa, on the slope of Mount Carmel, is the Universal House of Justice, which is the coordinating center of this dogma. “UNESCO has added the Bahá’í World Center to the World Heritage Register. Thus, the Bahá’í gardens in Haifa and Badji became the first landmarks in the UNESCO registry that are associated with the religious traditions that emerged in the modern period of history ” (from the pages of Wikipedia). Like traditional religions, this creed has fundamental principles of faith and its own special calendar.
Let us take a closer look at the youngest dogma in the sequence of the “historical cycle of Adam and Eve”, which Dr. Moon Sun Myung brought to humanity in the last century. In the modern world, His creed is known as Munism, and the followers of His teachings are Moonies. Dr. Moon, a Korean by descent (1920–2012), according to the doctrine of his dogma, He is the restored Adam or True Father, and his spouse Mrs. Moon restored by Eve, or the True Mother. In this regard, this creed can still be called Adamianism, and its followers – Adamians. Moonite and Adamianin may have an identical meaning, as a Muslim – Mohammedan. From the “historical cycle of Adam and Eve”, it follows that this peaceful doctrine is the logical conclusion of the “historical cycle” after the creation of the “spiritual world” for humanity. A little about the activities of Dr. Moon.
The World Peace Federation is a non-governmental organization formed by Moon Sun Myung in 2005 in New York, and having consultative status with the UN-ECOSOC. The organization is known for its international league of ambassadors of the world of 100,000 high-ranking officials around the world who are in search of genuine peace and universal spiritual prosperity. According to the official UN website, the Federation for Universal Peace is a world union of organizations and individuals who have dedicated themselves to building world peace in which all people without exception can live in freedom and harmonious coexistence. The World Peace Federation is conducting Middle Eastern peace initiatives aimed at reconciling Jews, Christians and Muslims.
In 1975, Moon Sun Myung created the International Fund for Assistance and Friendship – a foundation that implements programs for the implementation of the Millennium Goals in the Middle East, Haiti and African countries. In 1992, Mrs. Moon founded an affiliate organization – the Federation of Women for Peace in the World, making a tour with performances in many countries.
Starting from ancient times and to this day, opponents have always been around such people and today on social networks, along with positive ones, sometimes you can come across unfounded and misinterpretations. In fact the thorny path that Rev. Moon Sun Myung and Mrs. Moon walked is for contemporaries and future generations the highest example of selflessness.
What does it mean to be a Lover of the Neutral Calendar?
Every peace-loving person who is not indifferent to the future of our planet can consider himself a lover of a neutral calendar. These can be representatives of various creeds, both Abrahamic and other cultures, such as Buddhism, Hinduism, Zoroastrianism, Confucianism, Taoism, Shintoism, and other peace-loving creeds. The participation of people who are undecided in matters of religion is also welcome, if this circumstance does not prevent them from being moderately peace-loving, since this quality is considered the highest priority in a person in the community of “NC” Lovers. Participation in the calendar project, does not commit to anything.

From the author of “NC”
In essence, the project “Neutral” is a consequence of the “historical cycle of Adam and Eve”, plus the result of centuries of experience, without which it would be impossible to achieve the proper parameters. Calendar topics are discussed for a long period of time and representatives of various nations took part in this process. The work on the drafting of this project should be considered as a collective work aimed at the benefit of Peace and prosperity of all the peoples of the Earth. The leader of the calendar movement can rightly be considered Elizabeth Achelis, who devoted her life to promoting calendar reform. The contribution of this master of his craft is hard to overestimate. In this sense, each participant in the calendar project can consider himself the receiver of the case of Elizabeth Achelis.
“NC” is intended for all nations and there is no doubt that as further popularized, the number of its fans will grow exponentially, reforming our life on the planet for the better. Of course, it is naive to assume that calendar reform is a matter of the near future, this requires some time, but the fact of popularizing “NC” as a project is already starting to make our world more secure and predictable. It would not be surprising if, at the same time, with the Lovers of “NC”, there are people with a different judgment, which is absolutely natural, but this circumstance cannot be a reason for pessimism. Assistance to the project “Neutral” contains a world-creating motivation, since it openly calls for religious tolerance, and attempts to restrain this process should be regarded as an obstacle to the cause of peace on Earth. There is confidence that the number of lovers “NC” will grow rapidly throughout the world, since this activity is peacemaking, which means God-pleasing. It is to be hoped that prudence prevails over all prejudices in the name of universal peace!
