Babylonian Wisdom

"He [Tiamat?] marked the positions of the wandering stars to shine in their courses, that they may not do injury, and may not trouble any one." -- Enuma Elish, Fifth Tablet of Creation

This passage makes absolutely no sense whatsoever unless the wandering stars (planets) actually had caused injury and trouble in the past.

The Babylonians also say Venus was a comet.

"We are told, in the inscriptions, of the fall of the celestial being who appears to correspond to Satan. In his ambition he raises his hand against the sanctuary of the God of heaven, and the description of him is really magnificent. He is represented riding a chariot through celestial space, surrounded by the storms, with the lightning playing before him, and wielding a thunderbolt as a weapon. This rebellion leads to a war in heaven...." -- George Smith, archaeologist, 1876

There is a lot of ?illuminatus? chatter that Lucifer is another name for Sol. Yet we are told that Lucifer was banished from heaven, after the battle. So Lucifer cannot be Sol, nor our nearest neighbour, Venus?
Saturn, which may have been our father to the earth satellite, may have been separated from the sun and earthand is the best candidate for Lucifer?
The whole Akhenaton business seems to confirm the change of status of many gods to one god. Sol Invictus.

Lucifer is the Morning Star Venus.

To elaborate, Lucifer is the Latin name for Venus when it is visible in the morning. It is was called Vesper when visible at dusk.

There is a scientific theory that says that Egyptians descended from Martians who had once visited this planet

lol...I take it that no hypothesis says that helicopters simply traveled back through time?

"I take it that no hypothesis says that helicopters simply traveled back through time?"

Relativity has all sorts of insane hypotheses about time travel.
