Remember.this is an issue of 1461 rotations in 1461 days with February 29th closing out the 1461st rotation nearest to 4 orbital circuits in an era which is full of people like you who are convinced of 1465 rotations in 1461 days.
A potential astronomer would find no difficulty in accepting a seasonal disappearance in Sirius behind the glare of the Sun as the Earth moves along its orbital circumference and using this star as a gauge for the completion of 4 circuits in 1461 days gets rid of the contrived attempt to put Sirius in stellar circumpolar motion when it is not observed constantly.
The issue is hugely complex but not among those like yourself who are trapped inside the clockwork solar system of right ascension and who can manufacture observations that don't exist.It is for this reason that I had to resort to holocaust literature and those who know firsthand how dangerous a 'fact' manufacturing machine can be for no good reason other than self-perpetuation and it wasn't that you are wrong with the observation of Sirius,it is that there was no objection giving the extent of the situation -
"Nazi theory indeed specifically denies that such a thing as "the truth" exists. [?] The implied objective of this line of thought is a nightmare world in which the Leader, or some ruling clique, controls not only the future but the past. If the Leader says of such and such an event, "It never happened"?well, it never happened. If he says that two and two are five?well, two and two are five. This prospect frightens me much more than bombs [?]" Orwell
If you have to be believe that Sirius rises every day without fail in order to support your 1465 rotations in 1461 days then that is what your imagination will dictate happens and any other technical or historical detail that needs to be adjusted to suit whatever conclusion you desire.The frightening part for me,more like that which causes the most dismay,is that so many people can do it for so long.
