"Hebrew calendar 240 years in error"

The Hebrew calendar is 240 years in error. At the time of the second revolt from Rome 135AD, the Jewish leaders wanted to make the book of Daniel support their leader as being the Messiah. So the re-figured the dates from creation, subtracting 240 years from the calendar. In the confusion following the final dispersion, no one ever changed it back. So The true Hebrew Calendar year is about 6010/11. Even the Jewish encyclopedia admits this.
