61. Morning Star II [Aeon Journal $]
... in fact, this very circling that was, by the ancients, interpreted as the searching of the goddess. As we have already seen, however, Mars, which did not circle as it dropped, came much closer to Earth than did Venus. Thus the red planet was seen to grow in size as it slid down the axis or polar column. But, as we have also seen, Mars did not remain close to Earth but, because of its erratic orbit, moved closer back to Saturn and then back closer ... " therefore, can be translated as "the Shining One." And it is this designation-- i.e. the Shining One, Son of Dawn-- that has led to the identification of Helel as the Morning Star and, by implication, as the planet Venus. For that reason, English versions of the Old Testament have supplanted the name "Helel" with "Lucifer," a Latin name that means "Light Bringer" or "Light Bearer," a designation for the same planet as Morning Star. ...

... much as was built during the day disappeared at night [1. Beneath the site of the proposed castle lay a pool. Inside the pool lay two containers separated by wrapping- literally a tent. Inside the wrapping were two serpents, one white and the other red. When released they began to fight. According to some scholars the two dragons symbolically represent the Welsh and the Saxons, largely on the basis that Vortigern is dated to the 5th century AD, contemporary with the Saxon conquest. The pool represented the world, ... ' p. 19. The Rivers of Venus Astronomy, February 1995, had an excellent feature 'Magellan Reveals Venus', with pictures and details of the space probe findings including the craters, coronae, and pancake domes. It reported that the entire surface of the planet appeared to have been 'wiped clean' of meteorite craters in the geologically recent past (suggested date 300-500 million years ago). Perhaps the strangest feature of all revealed by Magellan is the 'Hildr', a 7,000km long valley which cuts across the planet's ...

Bjorkman believes fireball or meteor is indicated by this term. ... what this author calls the "bibbu boo-boo." There is considerable reason to suspect that the majority of our planet's namesakes were comets-- probably of the Encke family. For instance, we can read from W.M. O'Neil (1975): "The word planet comes from the Greek planetes, the wanderers; these seven celestial bodies moved among the fixed stars. The Babylonians had a more picturesque name bibbu, the wild sheep, as these bodies broke through the fixed formation in which the tame sheep crossed the sky. ...

... historical evidence for fixing the date of the Exodus" as the result of his investigations, which "verify the Biblical account to an unexpected degree, which is significant, as there is a tendency to consider the Exodus account as fiction". The parting of the Red Sea can be explained as a natural phenomenon due to a tidal wave consequent on the Thera eruption, rather than a divine intervention. He also found inscriptions in Sinai which gave parallel accounts to the Biblical "pillar of fire and of cloud". Orthodox scholars ... layers. There is something a little peculiar about these last notions. The Great Red Spot has been known of for some centuries, and so by theory ought to have been spewing out red phosphorus during this time. Where does all the phosphorus come from in a planet which Dr Hunt states to be 82% hydrogen and 17% helium? Does it recirculate only within the Red Spot area? If so, how? If not, is it in constant production, being synthesised in nuclear reactions? Should this not have resulted ...

(Continued) Alfred De Grazia DR ALFRED DE GRAZIA is Professor of Social Theory at New York University, and heads the research project into Revolutionary Primevalogy. If Peter James is correct in identifying Aphrodite with the planet Venus, eschewing her identification with the Moon, orthodox classicists will be pleased, and, as he says, Immanuel Velikovsky will be wrong, and Ralph Juergens will be wrong. Furthermore, I shall be wronger than anybody, for I have circulated a book ...

... this star and Morning Star [Mars all things were created. She is the mother of the Skiri' [18. As the Pawnee traditions attest, the planet Mars played a prominent role in ancient myth and religion. Wherever one looks, one will find the red planet accorded a numinous power wildly out of proportion to its present modest appearance. The Sumerian war-god Nergal, early on identified with the planet Mars, forms a pivotal figure in comparative analysis. Thus, it can be shown that war-gods and warrior-heroes from every corner ...

... the astronomical basis for this identification. (86) If our thesis is to be followed to its logical conclusion, Oedipus as well is to be identified with the planet Mars, a conclusion supported also by his close resemblance to Heracles, yet another name for the red planet among the Greeks. (87) The Martian identification of Oedipus, in my opinion, will explain much that is obscure about the great tragedy of Sophocles. The intimate association of the planet Mars with pestilence and plague, for example, is a widespread ... the god Ares seems the most plausible interpretation of the foregoing evidence. This finding is not wholly unexpected given the fact that the setting of the Oedipus tale is Thebes, one of the great strongholds of the Ares-cult. (85) OEDIPUS, ARES, AND THE PLANET MARS In Greek astrology, as is well-known, Ares was unanimously identified with the planet Mars, and we have elsewhere sought to provide the astronomical basis for this identification.

Traditions originally associated with the planet Venus, for example, became transferred to Sirius, the brightest star. Mars-traditions became assigned to Antares, the next most obvious red star.

With the supplanting of these prim-eval suns and planets-- in many ways the focal point of ancient myth and religion-- the ancient skywatchers sought substitutes amongst the stars and constellations which appeared in the wake of the cataclysm. Traditions originally associated with the planet Venus, for example, became transferred to Sirius, the brightest star. Mars-traditions became assigned to Antares, the next most obvious red star. Despite the fact that the original points of reference for the mythical traditions were now gone or dramatically transformed in appearance ( ...

This would have meant that the planets composing this unheard-of configuration were all sharing the same axis of rotation. What this also means is that, from Earth, man would have seen the planet Mars centered on Venus which, in its turn, would have appeared centered on Saturn. I will make no apologies here for the fact that this theory was constructed on the basis of the mytho-historical record rather than through astrophysical considerations. I will only say in ...
