There is no issue concerning the Great Year. The rate of precession is very accurately known by scientists.

I beg to differ.

Your whole theory is predicated upon the following assumptions:

(1) The Rate of Precession is a constant, of which you have offered no scientific proof,

and

(2) The Great Year is a constant in terms of the number of years for one rotation of the Great Circle, of which you have offered no scientific proof.

Without proof of this data, your whole theory of dating by means of Precession of the Equinoxes/Solstices is mere speculation and should be acknowledged by yourself as such.

I have asked you to provide answers to these questions in the thread "The Great Year." For someone who claims to be an expert in such matters and is immersed in the Scientific Method, I would not expect this to be too difficult.
