"RE: Donna Danna: 03.03.24: except those days be shortened"


Donna,
Thank you for your response.
In the article that you linked to, it said, "A faster rotation speed would mean a shorter day, so the number of days in a year would increase".
Wouldn't that then mean that 1260 days would no longer be 3 years, but less than that?
What would change, the number of days in the month, or the number of months in a year?

And then, what about time keeping in Israel?
Will they still keep to each month beginning with a new moon, requiring a periodic leap month of 2nd Adar, to synchronize to the solar year?
(similar to our currently adding a 29th of February every 4 years)
So, if Israel keeps to the lunar calendar, then passover and tabernacles would no longer be at a full moon, but would come short of that?

Would the measure of an hour, a minute, and a second, all be reduced according to the reduction of the duration of the day?
Or would there simply be less than 24 hours in the day, leaving the duration of hour, minute, and second, intact?
Would the equinox then be reduced to 9 & 9, or 6 & 6, or less, rather than 12 & 12?

Also, the circadian rhythm cycle for man and beast would be dramatically altered, and possibly suddenly.
Currently, the farther we live from the equator, the more this rhythm slowly changes over the course of each year.
Apparently because the length of daylight hours and nighttime hours has the largest impact on circadian rhythm (I used to work shift work). 
But a dramatic shortening of the day would result in a sudden frequency change of the cycle, yet the annual changes would remain the same.

Would 8 shortened days still be a sufficient wait before circumcising an Hebrew boy?
