Well then this would be a good time to introduce the Stardate as used in Star Trek.

That is not at all what you are "supposed to believe". What they said is that many documents for the years 614-911 AD were created before the years happened. When the switch happened from the Julian Calendar to the Gregorian Calendar the year didn't change, but 10-13 days were dropped, depending on when the country switched, to make up for the accumulated added time in the Julian calendar.

Now would it be so hard to believe that a small group of people added ~300 years of conquest and glory in order to better their position in society at a time when the only people who could read and write were clergymen.

That being said, they didn`t give any actual evidence in the article.

So we're supposed to believe that in 1592 the entire world somehow conspired to f[u]ck with the minds of everyone in the future by randomly adding close to 300 years to the calendar that never actually occurred?

And every government/nation on the planet fabricated fake documents to support the conspiracy?

And he claims other people support his belief.
That`s the hardest part to fully grasp....
That so many could be off their meds at the same time.
