**(Six-year cycles)**

The Maya, Egyptians, Babylonians
and others also had a 360-day calendar. As said, they adjusted it to the more accurate year of 36__5__ days by
simply added 5 special days at the
end of every 360-day year rather than the 30-day leap month system of
the prophetic calendar.^{1} Because
these ancient calendars did not account for the extra* **quarter *day in the more accurate computation
of 365**.***25*, their year steadily fell behind. For
instance, with every 1460 Julian years (of 365**.25** days) 1461 Egyptian years
elapsed (of 365 days). (1460 years x **.**25
days [i.e., 6 hours] = 365 days, or a one-year lag.) The Egyptians called
this 1460-year cycle the "Sothis Period."

To match the 365.25 level of accuracy, the
360-prophectic calendar of 12 months of 30 days must simply count out
6 years before an *extra* month of 30 days is accumulated. (A 365
solar year less a 360 prophetic year = 5 days. **Five** days for
each year over a **six**-year period = 5 x 6 = 30 days.) This means
that every 6th year is a leap month year with ** 390** days in that year,
(i.e., 13 months of 30 days = 390 days).
