"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

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, etc., a long list of esoteric and ill-supported constructs that are proposed, promoted, and accepted by numbers of other people.

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 30 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 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, chief gods were El, Moloch, Chemosh, and these names and other titles referred to the planet Saturn.
  4. Because I had learned that the chief planet god of virtually all ancient cultures was Saturn.
  5. Because down through the ages various and sundry cultures sacrificed men, women and children to gods that were Saturn.
  6. Alexander Hislop, in The Two Babylons, 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 of the major religions came from ancient Saturn worship and mythology.
  7. 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 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 unacceptable concepts of God were patterned after a stationary central luminary.
  12. I was already convinced that the gas giants of the solar system are basically low powered stars.
  13. The Saturnian Scenario provided an explanation for the introduction of a night of complete darkness, and the associated universal inherent fear. This never made sense to me as a purposeful 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 proposed reconstructions of the ancient times.
  19. The planetary catastrophic paradigm provided a completely different 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
