[time-nuts] Time of death-Again

One thing we should bear in mind that our tombstone timestamp should
have things like the timezone, and calendar in use, references, such
that future people can determine the exact point in time of our death.
In fact, basing the timestamp on some true reference point would
better than about 2000 years after some event happened on earth as
archaeologists from other words coming to the Earth in the future
would be left to figure out this arbitrary time event. I would propose
that we relate the year portion (which is the LSB and most important)
to some celestial event thereby making it possible to document this
easily for future life-forms to determine. The whole year/date thing
really should be made secular as there is no place for religion in the
governance of society.
