... that some event caused Venus to spin in a different direction and at a slower speed... than any other planet. Both satellites of Mars and most of Jupiter's did not originate with those planets but also seem to have been captured relatively recently. Jupiter's Great Red Spot, which seems to be a gigantic permanent storm, may actually be just an eddy caused by the presence of an Earth-size 'pebble' recently tossed into the turbulent Jovian atmosphere, where it floats, disrupting the flow of gases around it. "Saturn's rings ... words, which I never uttered, into my mouth. It is even lamer when used to ignore words that I did. My dismay had nothing to do with the speculations of others. What "chagrined" me was that these speculations attributed the ejection of the planet Venus from Saturn to my works when, more than once I had emphatically denied that I had ever stated such a thing. Moreover, the issue has nothing to do with what I mean by "Child of Saturn" for, while I did coin this ...

As it turns out, one of these meteors almost certainly came from the planet Mars, nearly 50 million miles away. The difficulty in dislodging a rock from the red planet, much less transporting it to Earth, has prompted several noted authorities to doubt its Martian origin.

... made. IV In Volume 4 of his work, Forrest not only treats of the Gaonic tradition which associates Gabriel directly with the planet Mars, he also tries to explain it: "A possible explanation for Gabriel's association with Mars lies... in the fiery red colour of the planet, for Gabriel was the angel associated with the element of fire.. ."

The archangel Michael was also associated with fire,(7) ... minor one, since Is.33 :3 remains, as I state in VS, a tortuously indirect and nebulous piece of "evidence" for Martian catastrophism. I find it very difficult to take seriously the idea that Isaiah is describing an era of catastrophe induced by the planet Mars when the closest we get to a mention of Mars is Is.33:3. Thus when the remarks which Mr. Cardona quotes from VSI, p. 12 are considered in their proper context- viz. a commentary on the Martian content of the Book ...

The only illumination is the infrared radiation from the planet's hot surface which is almost sufficiently intense to be seen as a very dull red glow.
