The Keepers of TIme
When they began noticing that the alleged precession of the earth did not move the sun through the constellation as the years went on, but instead, the sun continued to cross the galactic equator on the solstices year in and year out, they needed to allege that there was some discrepancy that was causing this.
Hence they claimed that the once universally accepted "rotation of the earth" was no longer a uniform rotation. This was the excuse they needed to justify putting the Controllers of Time into the hands of the newly established hierarchy within the religion of Scientism. Within the coveted walls of the US Navy, they devised ephemeral time, which was in a sense a complicated system that only the astronomical specialists could determine by celestial observations. Ephemeris time was to be measured on a scale defined by the orbital period rather than the "axial rotation of the earth"...
"a former standard astronomical time scale adopted in 1952 by the IAU, and superseded in the 1970s. This time scale was proposed in 1948, to overcome the drawbacks of irregularly fluctuating mean solar time. The intent was to define a uniform time (as far as was then feasible) based on Newtonian theory (see below: Definition of ephemeris time (1952)). Ephemeris time was a first application of the concept of a dynamical time scale, in which the time and time scale are defined implicitly, inferred from the observed position of an astronomical object via the dynamical theory of its motion."
"Ephemeris time (ET), adopted as standard in 1952, was originally designed as an approach to a uniform time scale, to be freed from the effects of irregularity in the rotation of the earth, "for the convenience of astronomers and other scientists", for example for use in ephemerides of the Sun (as observed from the Earth), the Moon, and the planets. It was proposed in 1948 by G M Clemence."
"From the time of John Flamsteed (1646–1719) it had been believed that the Earth's daily rotation was uniform. But in the later nineteenth and early twentieth centuries, with increasing precision of astronomical measurements, it began to be suspected, and was eventually established, that the rotation of the Earth (i.e. the length of the day) showed irregularities on short time scales, and was slowing down on longer time scales."
Devil in the Details
In order to hide no axial precession, no spin to earth, and the obvious regularities of the annual positioning of the stars against the sun, they devised complicated time epochs based on ephemeris time, leaving the office of keeping true time in the privileged hands of only a select few - keeping real time a secret from you and disseminating fictitious time for you in its stead. A cult in the highest order, collaborating parties included the International Astronomers Union and the US Military as well as others, membership was determined on how faithful one was to the continued complicity of keeping true time a secret.
Solar observations with coronagraphs were discouraged toward the amateurs and claimed only to be effectively measured by the eyes of the specialists in high places - pun intended - like Chilean and Hawaiian mountaintops, or even from space. Stellar positioning against the sun remaining fixed year in, year out, was to be hidden at all costs.
But soon, the honest astronomers soon caught on. Their observations contradicted the heliocentric precession myth, and they were too smart to buy the ephemeral fudgery explanation.
So, if they were determined to be a loose cannon, or loose scope, they were murdered.
This is the biggest conspiracy in the world. All the government agencies are culpable, and will soon have to capitulate. There will be whistelblowers and there will will trials held.
