and what is that in your opinion?edit on 12/9/2012 by blazingdefiance because: spelling
During the time that Draco's star Thuban was the pole star, it would have appeared to ancient sky watchers that the Earth revolved around Draco. Dragons and other similar creatures often played a role in creation myths. In these stories the gods would often battle such creatures for control of the Earth. When defeated, the dragons were flung up into the skies.
Roman myth calls this dragon Ladon and he guarded the golden apples on a tree in a garden tended by the Hesperides, the daughters of Atlas. Hercules was sent to obtain the apples while under pledge to Eurystheus. He learned from Nereus that he could not pluck the apples himself, but must get help from Atlas. Hercules shot and killed Ladon with an arrow, making way for Atlas to enter and pluck the golden apples. The goddess Hera was greatly distressed by the death of Ladon and placed the dragon in the heavens.
A Greek legend tells the story of Draco as a horrible dragon that guarded a sacred spring and slew the soldiers of Cadmus (first king of Thebes) who had been sent to gather water. Cadmus then fought the dragon and won,. After the dragon died, Athena appeared and told Cadmus to sow the ground with the creature's teeth. The teeth immediately sprang up as a group of armed soldiers who helped Cadmus found Thebes.
A Babylonian creation story tells of Tiamat, who turned herself into a dragon but was later defeated and split into two parts. One part became the heavens and the other, the Earth.
A Chinese tale sees the stars as the dragon who eats the Sun or Moon (possible represented by the north star Polaris) in an eclipse. During a real eclipse, ancient Chinese would make as much noise as possible, banging on pots and pans to try and scare away the dragon which was eating the Sun or Moon.
A Norse creation myth tells of a dragon who gnaws at the roots of Ygdrasil, the tree that covers the world.

David speaks with half truths, they are everywhere.
There is only man that speaks the whole truth.
A lot of these comments prove to me that there are people here who are commenting on David's blog and books without actually reading any recent info. Like most people, he's maturing and growing, and has stopped a lot of the bad habits like poor source citing.

David Wilcock is a useful idiot. He is fed disinfo, much of which he believes and passes it on. There are many in his category, you know, just enough truth to catch the not too bright and lots of fantasy and nonsense. Others like him are David Icke, Benjamin Fulford, Alex Jones, Peggy Kane, Stewart Swerdlow and the list goes on. If the system is to be controlled, then the opposition must be controlled and the "inside stories" must be controlled. You must believe that you have dug deeper than the surface story and found the truth but what you have is the controlled truth and it is injected with appropriate lies to keep you from the true story.

But he's not a disinfo agent, or a liar, at least on purpose.
