... Reseph with a disturbance of the Sun. (88) That Reseph is to be identified with the planet Mars makes this tradition of direct relevance to the present study. Thus Ugaritic scribes identified Reseph with the Akkadian Nergal, the latter god being commonly identified with the red planet in ancient times. (89) Modern scholars have likewise identified Reseph with Mars, although they have yet to appreciate the incongruity of Reseph/Mars' involvement in an "eclipse" of the Sun. (90) In conformance with this report from ... is the following passage, discussed briefly in our previous article: "What time thou settest near the Sun thy body, thy form, Immortal One, is seen expanding." (85) How does all of this relate to our hypothesis that Indra represents the planet Mars? (86) The fact of the matter is, as we have documented elsewhere, that the planet Mars was associated with eclipse-like phenomena by other ancient peoples as well. (87) Ancient texts from Ugarit, for example, associate the god Reseph ...

... conceptions associated with the planet Mars that represented a radical departure from the norm in mythological analysis. In short, the thesis was put forward that the mythology of the world's great heroes commemorated-- at least in part-- the ancient appearance and activities of the red planet in relation to its celestial neighbors. If the ancients' identification of Heracles with the planet Mars has a rational basis it will provide us with an invaluable foundation upon which to launch a new analysis of ancient mythology. A case in point is the cult ... latter being the most conspicuous hero in Near Eastern literature. In itself this was nothing new; the same point had been made by numerous scholars before.

... far as was known, couldn't support terrestrial life, even though it possibly contained some water and carbon dioxide as visualized with our telescopes in the frozen whitish polar caps. When Mariner 4 made its fly-by in July of 1965 for a tantalizing first close-up look at the red planet, its photographic results were awaited with anticipation and considerable excitement. Due to dust loading of the Martian atmosphere, however, the returned pictures turned out to be rather fuzzy, leaving far too many lingering questions unanswered. Later in 1971, Mariner 9 made ... seas and called them canali (channels), a term which was later almost inextricably associated with the astronomer Giovanni Schiaparelli and translated as "canals," implying artifacts. The astronomer Percival Lowell never wavered in his belief that there were Martians fighting to save their dying planet. Around the turn of the century, following his electrical experiments in Colorado Springs, Nikola Tesla proclaimed to the world that messages to and from Earth with the inhabitants of the planet Mars were imminent. In England, Lord Kelvin (William Thomson) was in ...

... north celestial center, stated their puzzlement by posing the question: "What has Saturn, the far-out planet, to do with the Pole?"(23) It appears that Mars also played a role in this configuration. In fact, research indicates that the red planet was positioned between the Earth and Saturn while sharing their common rotational axis. Because of the fiery debris which flowed between the planets, the Earthly observer was presented with the picture of a towering pillar spanning the heavens between Earth's northern horizon and Mars. It ... Greek religion and myth.(9) That Ares was originally a celestial body is suggested by a Homeric hymn in which the god is described as a fiery sphere among the planets.(3) This fiery nature links Ares to Mars, described as the fiery planet par excellence in both Babylonian and Greek astronomy. And, in fact, this identification was made by the Greeks themselves as early as the fifth century B.C.(4) Having already identified Kadmos with Saturn,(41) we are led to ask what ...

... , particularly so the so-called "Mars-tables"). That errors have crept into the ancient traditions has been the usual explanation employed by modern scholars. Stephenson and Sawyer, for example, supporters of a Martian identification of Reseph, nevertheless attempt to dissociate Reseph from the red planet when that god is involved with ecliptic phenomena. (20) Another explanation, however, is to assume that the order of the solar system has only recently been established. This possibility was first raised by Immanuel Velikovsky in Worlds in Collision (the identification ...

... and Mars. Some asteroids may have crash landed on Earth, Moon, Mars, Jupiter or Saturn. Large craters on Earth and Moon, large craters and a planet-wide dust cloud on Mars at about the time of arrival of an Earth space probe, and small red spots on Jupiter and Saturn may be evidence of this kind of asteroidal demise. Most asteroids have less elliptical orbits that keep them between the orbits of Mars and Jupiter. These asteroidal orbits are arranged in belts, separated by Kirkland gaps.

In Earth's atmosphere helium is about 10 times as plentiful as hydrogen and both are very rare. In principle, a planet intermediate in size between Earth and Uranus or Neptune might have lots of helium but contain only a small amount of free hydrogen. Such a planet could still be classified as terrestrial or a gas giant depending on whether most of its mass is of solid ice, ...
