Sir Fred Hoyle, David Asher and Duncan Steel claim that a more active' and threatening sky might have caused major cultural changes of Bronze Age civilisations, belief systems and religious rituals. Can the astronomical evidence brought forward by these astronomers be substantiated by historical, archaeological and climatological evidence? Culture In light of new astronomical and archaeological theories and ... emergence of scientific neo-catastrophism, it seems necessary to re-assess the origins and cultural implications of apocalyptic religions and catastrophe traditions in ancient mythologies and rituals. In particular, the significant cultural and religious changes at the beginning of the Bronze Age and those which occurred after its final collapse will be re-evaluated.

... Egyptian history," wrote Arthur Weigall, adding, "there is probably no period in ancient history which so merits elucidation."1 This much is known: the religious reform of Akhnaton was abolished, his line died out, and his palaces and city were abandoned; history, however, professes not to know the cause of all ... the other a saint, "the first monotheist," and precursor of Moses, the lawgiver. Unavoidably, the story touches on an important point in the history of religion. The road to monotheism was thorny and tortuous. Akhnaton, however, was not "the first monotheist"; that he was called "the criminal" by ...

... again I quote - "There are no errors in my books." These, I admit, are not the words of a scientist or scholar, but of a religious prophet expounding the revealed truth. Now religion, resting as it does on faith, not proof, is by definition not scientific.
