Acharya S "Respect my Religion"
Acharya S worked hard to reexplore and re-present the sungods astrotheology over the last few decades(since about 1999). Her "Christ in Egypt" and "Did Moses Exist" put her in a class all her own. There were some before her in the 1980s like Wells, and in the 1990s, there was Earl Doherty. I suspect her SunGods book might be a good read also. I haven't read it yet. Remarkably, she died on Dec 25th, 2015. The birthdate that so many sungods have.
I found her a bit temperamental, actually. I remember trying to explain to her that Jacob Bronowski explains, in his "Science and Human Values" that mathematics and poetry share a common feature in analogy. And that mythology is also . . . poetry. She went off on a anti-rationalist tirade and even compared Spock to the devil and such. I posted a bunch of her findings, from her "Did Moses Exist", all based on confirmations of primary sources, and she comes in under some other name and says I'm plagerizing! I know she delt with a lot of people; but, man, me and her never got along! I mean she didn't "respect my rationalist religion". She didn't stop to consider the ideas, either refute them with factrs or logic, or find them right after facts/logic. Instead, she goes into some really weird psycho mode. I just can't help posting this great video of hers! Some thought for the day along with this great new picture of the Great Red Spot of Jupiter!
