New Calendar

Christianity has such a bad reputation and on general secular principles, it improper to impose its Gregorian calendar on the world. I think we should replace it with a secular calendar. Days in the year would be numbered 0 to 364 or 365 in leap years. Months would be numbered 0 to 11 and would consist of 30 days each. The last 5 days of the year would be for a special short month. There would be no rent or credit cards payments due. It would be used for celebration. Each year would start on Sunday. Days of the week would be numbers 0 to 6. When to start numbering the years? perhaps the big bang, the formation of earth, the founding of some global economic union. There would be a year zero and any years prior would have negative numbers. There would be no DST (Daylight Saving Time). There would be no hours, minutes or seconds, just fractional days. You could do most calendrical calculations in your head and they would be trivially easy to program on computer. Days would be displayed as YYYYYY-DDD.
