51. The Death of Heracles [Aeon Journal $]
... to raise the possibility of a relationship between the boiling child and the planet Mars, provided, that is, that one can accept the identity of the Latin god with the planet of that name. (58) That the Latin god Mars was identified with the red planet is well-known, of course, although few scholars have been willing to consider the possibility of a celestial dimension to the god's cult. (59) Nonetheless it must be admitted that Mars-- as a god of war symbolized by an upright lance, ... was led to suggest that Melqart too was a god of the Underworld. (37) Other scholars, however, maintain that Melqart's name signifies merely "King of Tyre." (38) In the astronomical system of ancient Babylon, Nergal was identified with the planet Mars. This identification extends back to Old Babylonian times and is apparent throughout the vast period encompassed by the god's worship. (39) That the same planetary identification was widely attested for Heracles in Hellenistic times suggests its relevance for our study. (40) ...

They were strung out, one 'below' the other, rather than circling around each other. This would have meant that the planets composing this unheard-of configuration all shared the same axis of rotation and also that, from Earth, man would have seen the planet Mars centred on Venus which, in turn, appeared to be centred on Saturn. I make no apologies here for the fact that this theory was constructed on the basis of the mytho-historical record rather than from astrophysical considerations. Note that, other than its mythological ...
53. Orbits of Core Material Ejected from Gaseous Planets [Kronos $]
... required to eject material equal to the present mass of Venus at surface escape velocity from Jupiter. Some notes are included later on the effect of the expulsion of core material from Saturn, which would appear to entail the infall of material at the site of the Great Red Spot of Jupiter as well as the ejection of a separate mass to become the planet Venus. Evidence based on mythology which supports one or other of these alternatives is outside the scope of this paper. The process of ejection which was proposed in Ref. 1 ... From: Kronos Vol. X No. 2 (Winter 1985) Home¦ Issue Contents Orbits of Core Material Ejected from Gaseous Planets Eric W. Crew The core of a large gaseous planet can be displaced from its central position by a small radial force. This will produce turbulence which could lead to further displacement, since the restoring gravitational force is very small. It is claimed(1) that the energy stored in the core of Jupiter is much greater than that required to eject material equal to the present mass of ...
54. Sothis and the Morning Star in the Pyramid Texts [Aeon Journal $]
... such terms as "Morning Star". Many centuries later, it is true, Egypt did develop a rudimentary astronomy under Hellenistic influence, at which time some of the planets received divine names. (77) During this period Venus was called Isis and Mars the Red Horus. (78) It is possible that such identifications reflect ancient traditions and attest to a continuity between the astral traditions of the Pyramid Age and those of Hellenistic times. Such a continuity, however, is difficult to prove and ultimately unlikely. (79 ... , as we have seen, favor an identification with Sirius. The inspiration for this view, almost certainly, stemmed from Greek influence; Plutarch, among others, having identified Isis with Sothis-Sirius. (29) Other Greek writers, however, identified Isis with the planet Venus. (30) So too did the Egyptians themselves. (31) Might not this planet then make a suitable candidate for the celestial counterpart of Isis-Spd.t? (32) Certainly this identification would make the most sense from the standpoint of comparative religion, ...
55. When Venus Was A Comet [Kronos $]
... Venus cycle, the Venus glyph became one of the earliest non-calendrical Mayan glyphs to be deciphered. Figure 13 shows the five principal variants of this glyph, of which the first four contain the prefix known to read "chac", meaning "great" or "red". Since Great Star was a common designation for Venus in several Mesoamerican languages, the reading of the glyph as Venus seemed certain. It is important to note, however, that even when the "ek" glyph appears alone, it can still mean ... was commemorated by the universal symbol of the enclosed sun, most familiar as the Egyptian Aten (o). There were, however, more surprises in store. A curious anomaly kept reappearing at each stage of the investigation. This was the intimate association of the planet Venus to symbols traditionally linked with comets-- e.g., the serpent-dragon, hair-star, bearded star, etc. The question arose as to whether this connection between Venus and cometary symbolism was fortuitous, or whether it was possible that the planet Venus once presented ...
56. The Mythical History of the Comet Venus (Part I) [Aeon Journal $]
... contained within itself another organ called "the heart of the heart" or "the heart of the soul," identified with the prominent warrior gods Shu, Horus, Sept, Anhur and others. The Egyptian called this innermost organ the ab-heart, represented by a red stone and called "the heart (ab) of carnelian." (82) There is some possibility, perhaps a likelihood, that in later times the distinction between the hati-heart and the ab-heart tended to break down, but there can be no doubt that ... 4 (1991) Home¦ Issue Contents The Mythical History of the Comet Venus (Part I) David Talbott INTRODUCTION Taking the mythically-based model of the polar configuration as a reference, (1) it is possible to reconstruct from ancient testimony the remarkable history of the planet Venus in prehistoric times. The integrity of this reconstruction will, in turn, lend substantial verification to the model by demonstrating that here-- as in other instances previously noted-- the model satisfies the requirements of a general theory: it accommodates and explains ...
57. Samson Revealed [Aeon Journal $]
... shared in common between Samson and various heroes. Both Samson and the Japanese Susanowo, for example, participate in an episode involving the bringing down of palatial beams. Yet at no time do the authors offer any convincing evidence that Susanowo is to be identified with the red planet, as one might otherwise expect to be necessary in order to make their case. Just how the authors would understand the archetypal Martian hero is not obvious. The following passage is as specific as the authors get in this regard: "Here is the ... the active powers among the stars, who are the planets." (21) Of the various planets, de Santillana and von Dechend have much to say with respect to the mythology surrounding Saturn and Mars. For example, they were the first to recognize the planet Saturn's bizarre association with the Pole. (22) Indeed, the authors come surprisingly close to anti-cipating a central tenet of the Saturn-thesis; namely, that a conjunction of various planets played a prominent role in ancient mythology: "The least which can be said ...
58. The Methodology of Patten's Martian Scenario [Aeon Journal $]
... years later, in November of 1983, Patten sent me some photocopied pages from McDowell's unpublished manuscript. It was obvious from the state of these pages that, even at this late date, the work was still unfinished. What I found stated there, highlighted in red for my benefit, was that the phonetic equivalence of Baal and Apollo was reserved for another forthcoming work to be titled Collapse of the Heavens. (36) What we end up with, therefore, is a reference to an unpublished work which refers us to ... to the 8th and 7th centuries B.C. As stated in the preceding section, Patten and his collaborators have gone a few steps further. As far as they are concerned, all of the catastrophes narrated in the Old Testament were caused by the close fly-bys of the planet Mars. In chronological order, these catastrophes, as per Patten, et al., were originally presented as having been the following: the Noachian deluge (circa 2500 B.C.); the Tower of Babel catastrophe (1930 B.C.); the Sodom ...

As I have documented elsewhere, the planet Mars was worshipped by most ancient peoples.

... catastrophe. The destruction provoked and wrought by Planet Venus probably encompassed in North Africa not only the Egypt of the Exodus but the recently explored Saharan "Libyan" culture. And if, as Velikovsky argues convincingly, Phaeton, which plunged somewhere along the longitude of the Red Sea, was a part of Comet-Venus, Planet-to-be, then Pallas was the earthly destructive force of comet Venus in North Central Africa. Stecchini, from his studies of the architectural measurements of the Parthenon, the crowning temple of the Virgin Athena on the Acropolis of ... More strikingly there is the beautiful Aphrodite who sports a beard as the so-called Cyprian Aphrodite. A major role is intended. In the Love Affair, there is only one such role for her that is logical: that is Hephaestus. Athena, the goddess of the Planet Venus is Hephaestus, also the planet Venus. No one appears to have said so, but the evidence is strong to that effect. Velikovsky and the scholars associated with him have presented evidence that Pallas Athene was the god of the planet Venus, that the ...
