The Design of Time
Is there any indication of mindful reason (or purpose) for the current spin-orbital configuration of the Earth and Moon?
Earth, Moon, and Sun
The time stream when subdivided by the action of the Earth-Moon can be recognized to contain specific time structures. The clear indication of arranged time structures points to the ultimate possibility that units of the solar day, the synodic month, and the solar year are components or elements of a time-tracking system that is fully interrelated. In essence, the spin of the Earth does appear to function or work in quite perfect interface both with the annual transit of the Sun and also with the synodic revolution of the Moon. The phases of the Moon do likewise appear to return in interface with each of the passing seasons--on the average.
For comprehensive information concerning what appears to be interrelatedness between Earth, Moon, and Sun cycles, refer to the literature linked from the opposite column. A satisfactory systems view of the rates of solar days, lunar phases, and solar years is not only possible but an interpretation of lunisolar time design seems quite easy to comprehend. It is very clear that rates of days, lunar phases, and years may represent codependent rates (or more than independent rates).
Sources from the Temple Era
Pertinent to a study of time design is that a plausible luni-based interpretation of the jubilee circle is contained in texts from the Temple Era. Some of the early-written manuscripts have significant information of perfectly related time cycles (both lunar cycles and solar cycles). In addition to containing graphic description of lunisolar time design, some ancient texts surprisingly show that priest-astronomers were quite effective in measuring and metering out both the lunar and solar movements.

A quest for creation answers
The online publications represent the results of an enduring research project. The project is headed-up by James Dwyer. (Jim was formerly a Computer Systems Programmer with the U.S. Geological Survey). Team members also include Sherry Goodwin. We do hope that our current research of the Earth-Moon system will be of great benefit in furthering your study of a created solar system.
