Ancient Creation Myths - one kind of interpretation

21 Aug 2010

At August 20th ... 'What on Earth ... ' is a post by Rens van der Sluijs and along the vein of his auroral notions as outlined in his book and in various articles. He suggests ancient creation myths have an origin in auroral phenomena and take place with the magnetosphere of the earth - which on occasions appeared to be alive. For example, according to the San Bushmen, 'in the earliest days the Sun lived among the tribes of the bush' and 'was like other men' - which is clearly not right. The earth, as such, was actually a plasma formation in the sky, the dwelling place of gods.
