Sun Worship and Monotheism

So in ancient times humanity was religiously, more or less, Pagan worshipping multiple gods. Then something changed physically and a new God appeared, the Solar Deity.

Of interest is the religion Islam – their most sacred site on which the Hajj is focussed houses a black-rock, or meteorite that is linked to the planet Venus. As Islam only appeared from the tribulations associated with the Comet of Justinian during the middle of the !st millennium CE, one may safely conclude that the Comet was Venus, and not Halley’s or other contenders.

This leads to the scenario that if the Roman civilisation was Pagan, and then became monotheistic Christianity in step with monotheistic Islam, then that historical period might be interpreted as the final settling down of the solar system into its present day configuration when the planets started orbiting the Sun.

The logic for this muse is the assumption that human behaviour is in response to changes in the heavens and environment, so a change from a “sun”, Chronos or Saturn, orbiting the Earth, to the new Sun around which the Earth orbited, caused a change in religious practices, from Paganism to Monotheism and the appearance of institutionalised religion.

Just musing.

About Louis Hissink

Retired diamond exploration geologist. I spent my professional life looking for mineral deposits, found some, and also located a number of kimberlites in NSW and Western Australia. Exploration geology is the closest one can get to practicing the scientific method, mineral exploration always being concerned with finding anomalous geophysical or geochemical data, framing a model and explanation for the anomaly and then testing it with drilling or excavation. All scientific theories are ultimately false since they invariably involved explaining something with incomplete extant knowledge. Since no one is omniscient or knows everything, so too scientific theories which are solely limited to existing knowledge. Because the future always yields new data, scientific theories must change to be compatible with the new data. Thus a true scientist is never in love with any particular theory, always knowing that when the facts change, so too must he/she change their minds.
