interesting question. i'm new at this, i would have gone for the second date.
how about the date on the laguna copperplate instead: Vaisakha / May 900.
To use a date of pardon as the natal day? he he. Why not?
Anyways, I don't think we have the needed critical mass of Filipinos having consciousness of the Laguna Copperplate Inscription as yet needed for a national catharsis or transformation. He he. I have heard of it or rather stumbled upon it just a year ago while researching about Philippine prehistory, Sanfotsi, Zabag, Lemuria and all those fantastical Ophir, Cattigara, Zipangu, Fusang, Suvarnadvipa, Serendip, Suwarnadvip, Punt, Primordial Phoenicia, Greater India etc. I wish Laguna copperplate Inscription be included in all history textbooks to be read by all Filipino youth.
So it's safe to say those three 'colonial' dates are the ones having significance on the destiny of the Filipinos in the present and very near future.
