If controversial subjects are not your cup of tea, read no further and put this book down right now because what this work has to offer is revolutionary in the extreme. God Star sets out to show that the sky that ancient man remembers was entirely different from the one that now stretches above us. This is demonstrated through ancient texts from all over the world which deal with the astronomical lore of our forebears. As if with a single voice, these texts proclaim that the present planet we know as Saturn once shone as a sun in Earth's primordial sky. This claim receives credence through the fact that astronomers now view the planet Saturn as the remnant of what had once been a brown dwarf star. It also goes a long way in explaining why Saturn was considered the "ruler of the planets in mythology,"* and why the god of that planet is found at the head of every ancient pantheon on earth. Astronomically, it is then deduced that Earth used to be the satellite of this proto-Saturnian sun, which mini-system then invaded the present Solar System, and that this transpired during the age of man. As bizarre as this scenario appears, it is lent credibility by the hard sciences through the unmistakable signs encountered here on Earth and also by what is constantly being discovered out in space. In fact, the likelihood that such an interloping planetary system might have been captured by the Sun is even now acknowledged by a new class of trailblazing astronomers. Thus, apart from the mytho-historical record, the theory presented within the pages of this book includes evidence from geology, palaeontology, astrophysics, and plasma cosmology. It also serves to elucidate various dilemmas that presently encumber these and other disciplines. What might be seen by some as of greater importance, the reconstruction of the primeval events that took place beneath the proto-Saturnian sun, goes a long way in disclosing the origins of religion, including the very concept of deity.
While, for the sake of scholarship, the book includes the odd technical tract, it is nevertheless written in a manner that will be readily understood by the intelligent layperson. In fact, it almost reads like a detective novel.
