The Mayan calendar used 3114 BC as their reference.More recently is the radiocarbon date of 1950 AD or before present, BP.But for the average layperson trying to understand Egyptian history, it is often a case of ‘Where do I start? ’ There are so many names, dynasties and dates bandied around with seeming authority that it is a confusing topic to investigate.Also, without some background or a framework to help the Christian gain some perspective on the issues, it is difficult to be discerning about any information that claims to solve the many mysteries that Egypt presents—and there are dozens of those from Christian researchers alone!While there is no proof that the rates were different in the past than they are today, there is also no proof that they were the same.
