Well, I suggest you watch at least the 1st 20 min they explain how time is conceived in the bible & Hebrew tradition..like I have already stated it seems to occupy much more mental energy with you & maybe others..but for myself I don't even think about it...its a shame you seem to be locked into a mindset concerning time...! or maybe you just want to keep a argument going about the matter..also I never got into the Black Hebrew that seems to be popular with the younger folks of the late 80's or early 90's ..I noticed even here & at ES there were always debates going on back & forth about the subject never interested me !!...now I do acknowledge that that Africans & decent can be Black Hebrews..as you mighty recall a outstanding documentary aired in the 90'sabout certain Africans carrying the Cohan( sp) gene even more than white Jews in certain aspects....since you are into the gene subject why not post on that....!! Least we forget that Africans where into Astronomical observation & time keeping for many thousands of years & knew about cycles of time..that's more my interest my brother...!!

Well since you wanna get personal again so will I.
You are a closed minded bigot who bristles at anything outside your limited knowledge base.
It's a big world that holds fire and ice.
I am a Jew (not a Black Hebrew or the like). We don't need non-Jewish interpretations of our own wisdoms. As for numbers cycles and times we have gematria and luahh calculation, etc. I'm also literate and don't bank on YouTube.
I know baLemba who have the highest frequency of the Kohen modal haplotype and wrote extensively about it for Kulanu where several African Jews from various African countries discussed it 2 decades ago. Should you visit baLemba you will find 15 S&P Sepharade prayerbooks I sent them dedicated to my father (obm).
Also over a decade ago I wrote on the ~20,000 year old 'Ishango Calculator', supplying the list an interactive virtual bone so all could understand what is on it and how to use it.
Just stop now. You're not gonna one up me. Don't be a hater.
Fair warning! You can go on and discuss the topic w/o smeering me or you can have negative comments about me get your entire post deleted.
OK well refocusing on the topic, how does the 400 years tie into an age-cycle format in either Judeo-CHristian tradition, or other traditions like Mayan cyclical? If there is a cycle, could that not raise possibility that the BAD things from the cycle (if any) could yet again occur?
Solar ycle involving 400 years-quite: This cycle also occurs in the Gregorian calendar, but it is interrupted by years such as 1800, 1900, 2100, 2200, 2300 and 2500, which are divisible by four but which are common years. This interruption has the effect of skipping 16 years of the solar cycle between February 28 and March 1. Because the Gregorian cycle of 400 years has exactly 146,097 days, i.e. exactly 20,871 weeks, one can say that the Gregorian so-called solar cycle lasts 400 years. en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Solar_cycle_(calendar)
Then there is the Maya angle Any historical or mythical event spanning more than 52 years required the ancient Maya to use an additional calendar, the Long Count. The Long Count calendar is a system that counts 5 cycles of time. This is very similar to the Gregorian calendar system that counts days, months, years, centuries and millennia. The Maya system also does this, but the difference is in the name and magnitude of the various cycles. Like Maya mathematics, the Long Count calendar system counts by 20s. The exception is in the third cycle, because 18 x 20, which equals 360, more closely approximates a Haab cycle or solar cycle of 365 days, rather than multiplying 20 x 20, which equals 400.
