... not yet been able to ascertain, was a personification of Mars or that he was alluded to as the Morning Star, but the implication of his character is clear enough. MULLYAN AND WAIJUNGARI Although the Australian hero mentioned above is not identified as the celestial body of our present interest, the Morning Star and Mars are not unknown to the Aborigines of that land. And it is to the mythological lore of these primitive peoples that I wish to turn next in an endeavor to strengthen the case presented above. The trailing ejecta discharged by both Venus and Mars as they dropped from the Saturnian center took the form of a conflagration which was said to have engulfed the gods' domain ...

A life-long resident of Australia, Allan was 63 at the time of his death on October 5th, 1999.

... moonless age must have died out because it was difficult to believe, without a very definite and strong tradition, that the Moon was not always in the heavens.
