"Mankind cannot live in constant fear of horrors that may hurtle at him from the sky, but neither can he walk about complacently in a false security that his science and technology can protect him from the inviolable, albeit often undiscernible, laws of the universe and their rampaging off-shoots. No matter how optimistic one may be, perhaps he cannot help occasionally glancing upward, The rub is that with most of the hurtling horrors, from black holes to comets, ducking won't help."  B. Steiger, "Hurtling Horrors from Outer Space," Man's World, Oct. 1974, Vol. 20, no. 5, p. 52

Why the Saturnian Scenario?:
Some Personal and other relevant considerations
Updated: 07/16/2019

Note: The Saturnian Reconstruction or scenario is bigger than a theory or hypothesis, but is an extensive, paradigmatic reconstruction of ancient times involving many dimensions of cosmology, planetary catastrophe, religion, psychology, culture, geology, ancient ecology, paleontology, archaeology, life sciences, languages and word origins, anthropology, symbol development, etc., including an unknown but extensive period of time labeled the Golden Age, with Saturn as our primordial sun.

I am a critical thinker, a scientist, and am not a credulous person. Falsity and misinformation are repugnant to me, and I consider belief in such to be insidious, dangerous and evil to both the person and society. The very last thing I want to do is to promulgate further confusion or nonsense. I don't believe in modern astrology, Alien Abductions, Reverse Speaking, Fortune-telling the Future, Transubstantiation, ad nauseam, a long list of esoteric and ill-supported constructs that are proposed, promoted, and accepted by substantial numbers of other people. Many/most? newspapers even publish a daily astrology section.

Then Solomon built a high place for Chemosh,... and for Molech. 1 Kings 11:7

On the other hand, I have believed in and actively supported the Saturnian Reconstruction Scenario for more than the last 40 years. I have had to ponder much and challenge often as to why I was convinced before a handful of people considered it credible, even before there was even a partially settled model, before there existed a physics and orbital dynamics to support any plausible model, before more than a few of the problems were worked out, before much of the very considerable myth correlation work that has been done since. Now I am happy and satisfied that these supports HAVE been adequately developed, but why DID I take this obstreperous position at that time? Here is a list covering the primary reasons:

  1. I have always accepted a paradigm of human devolvement versus evolvement.
  2. The Old Testament narrative starts with there being two light generators, two suns in the sky. The text does NOT refer to the moon.
  3. In the Old Testament, three chief gods were El, Moloch, Chemosh, and these names and other titles referred to the planet Saturn or its aspects.
  4. I had already learned that the foremost planet god of virtually all ancient cultures was Saturn.
  5. I had already learned that down through the ages various and sundry cultures sacrificed men, women and children to gods that were Saturn or its aspects.
  6. Alexander Hislop, in The Two Babylons, had convinced me that Roman Catholicism was patterned after Saturn Worship. I later learned in a much wider scope that many or most of the aspects and concepts of God in ALL the major religions came from ancient Saturn worship and mythology.
  7. It is widely accepted that ancient people worshipped the Pantheon of planet gods, first Saturn, Mars, Venus and then later Jupiter and the sun.
  8. What used to be the most important day of the week was named after Saturn.
  9. Sunday as the Lord's day transitioned from The Sabbath as Saturn's day..
  10. The Greek names for Saturn were Kronos and Chronos, the latter being the root for our words regarding time and timekeeping, and this supports a new and powerful explanation for why Saturn is known as "Father Time" or the Father of Time.
  11. I could see that some of the most alien or unacceptable concepts of God, especially omnipresence, were patterned after a stationary central luminary.
  12. By the evidence, I was already convinced that the gas giants of the solar system are basically low powered stars that give off more energy than they receive from the sun.
  13. The Saturnian Scenario provided an explanation for the introduction of a night of complete darkness, and the associated universal inherent fear of it. The blackness of night never made sense to me as a purposeful or desirable creation.
  14. Velikovsky opened up serious consideration of this scenario with his unpublished manuscript listing some major pertinent aspects, and did so without even a model.
  15. I have never taken the pronouncements of mainstream cosmology as the truth.
  16. At the time, I somewhat intuitively knew that the dinosaurs could not exist in our gravitational environment of today.
  17. Although it may have gone some way towards adapting, I could see that the human body was neither designed for nor did it develop in our current gravitational environment.
  18. There was always a plethora of reasons to be convinced that something was seriously amiss with the non-catastrophic proposed reconstructions of the ancient times.
  19. The planetary catastrophic paradigm provided a completely different and more acceptable explanation for the origin of belief in devils and demons, hell and hellfire.
  20. I was already convinced that there had been a literal Golden Age, the essence of the myth of the Garden of Eden, the Isle of Avalon, the Age of Perfect Virtue, etc.

Since that early adoption, almost all of the blanks and missing pieces have been filled in to my satisfaction, and the overall scenario has been confirmed by the standard used in every USA courtroom, that being, beyond a reasonable doubt. See The Third Story

The following is a list of general factors, concerning myth, composed by Rens van der Sluijs:

  1. Mythology and traditional cosmologies contain a "fossil history of dramatic events in nature", events and circumstances not seen today
  2. There was a specific myth-making epoch, which can be identified in time in the ballpark of roughly 10,000 BP.
  3. Myths are concerned with an "age of myth" or "age of the gods", which can be identified in relative time
  4. The "creation" of ancient traditions is not concerned with the actual origin of the world, but merely with a time of drastic visible changes in the appearance of the earth and the sky
  5. Mythical archetypes form a web of tightly interlocking themes
  6. The equivalence of myth, ritual and iconographic symbol
  7. Most of the actors in the myths, certainly the key players, are or turn into astronomical bodies (at least from the perspective of the myth-makers)
  8. There is rough sequence of episodes: from "chaos" to a "golden age" to a "catastrophic disintegration"
  9. Most of the world's deities are alter egos of each other, tracing to a very limited number of original actors
  10. There are specific themes of forms such as the "enclosure", axis mundi, concentric circles, stationary luminary on top, etc.

The comparative method that is used for the conclusions of this site emphasizes points of agreement. Each source is first vetted individually and each piece of evidence must be solid.
