I also find it interesting to see that scrolls and books from the distant B.C.s and echoed in many Genesis accounts talks about the "firmament" as
being what seperates the lands and seas and the heavens, where the birds fly. This sort of hints to knowledge that there is an end to the Earth's
atmosphere. I sometimes wonder where and how the idea of a "firmatment" that parrellels the description of the atmosphere stems from when I doubt
mankind went high enough to know that the atmosphere is not endless.
I also wonder how the Egytians in their mythology seem to know that Orion's belt was regarded as the center of the Heavens, when we could not come to
that conclusion until the mid 1990s.
In 1994 the Hubble telescope mirror imagery problem was corrected, and one of the reasons it was built was then implemented.
The Earth's atmosphere reflects approximatley 70% of all light that hits hit.
This means that on a clear night away from the city lights one would be lucky to see 3 of every 10 stars that are actually visible from only 38 miles
The WORLD's top SCIENTISTS utilized the doplar effect to determine and date the big bang.
The doplar (spelling?) effect is when we look and analyze light through a spectrum to determine whether the red or blue shift of the lights spectrum
is hitting us first. If the red shift is hitting us first, then the object is moving away from us. If it is the blue shift, then the object is
moving towards us.
The worlds top scientists (Source is from both NASA and SETI reports and Discovery magazine September issues of 1994 or 1995) observed 196 gallaxies
to determine with the technology we had outside the Earth's atmosphere when the big bang happened.
There findings indicated that 189 gallaxies were part all at the same location and were accelerating outward in a sphere like shape, while our gallaxy
and the 6 other gallaxies closest to us were heading in trajectory inconsistent with us being part of the big bang.
We are heading towards Orion's belt. The Egyption mythologies seem to show some understanding of this and claim the knowledge of the heavens
originated with one of thier first Gods.
They also built on Giza a mirror image of the stars of the constallation Orion, or it is merely coincidence that they line up.
So, I often ponder if they did know this knowledge, then how did they obtain it when the only reason we knew it was because we had technology outside
the Earth's atmosphere.
I've come to 2 possible conclusions (based upon current understanding).
1) They were taught this (as their mythology figuratively supports) by someone who had obtained this knowledge from outside the Earth's atmosphere.
2) They had been recording the movements of the stars for approximately 40,000 years and figured it out.
Incidently, the second strongly supports your religion is ancient astronomy theory. As do the Viking and Nordic legends that seem to teach natural
procession of the zodiac and the changining of the ruling house every 26,000 years.
But, it is just one way to interpret the facts and misunderstood mythological beliefs of the ancient world.
