The 'lore' itself has clues to its age and origin.
We now know that ALL the outer planets have rings, from Jupiter out to Neptune -- not just Saturn. The other three rings are in the ecliptic plane so are not visible from Earth.
Space travelers would have seen all four ring systems, and anybody learning from them would know of ALL the ring systems.
Earth-dwellers, until the Space Age, could only see one of the rings -- Saturn's.
Whoever told the Dogon, only knew of one of the rings.
Which source does that suggest?
How did these people get advanced knowledge of astronomy before 3200 BCE, which was only discovered to be true in the 1970's?
