if you read the linked article, you see the explanation: the fourth commandment specifies resting on the seventh day. any proposed calendar that doesn't have a seven day week will never be adopted as long as religion still exists.

and even if it weren't for religion, everything is structured around a seven day week. changing that would mean a drastic lifestyle change for most people.
