If you are uncomfortable with the equally implausible literal creationist or the modern mythology version of what happened in the ancient times, then these 518 pages will show you that the sky earlier man remembers was entirely different from the one that now stretches above us.

This is firmly supported through ancient texts, artwork, and symbology from all over the world which deal with the astronomical lore of our forebears. As if with a single voice, these sources proclaim that the present planet we know as Saturn once shone as an earlier sun in Earth's primordial sky.

This claim receives credence through the fact that astronomers now view the planet Saturn as the remnant of what had once been a brown dwarf star. It also goes a long way in explaining why Saturn was considered the "ruler of the planets", and why the god of that planet is found at the head of every ancient pantheon on earth. Ra, Brahma, Kronos, Moloch, and Shamash are some of the more familiar names for the supreme god Saturn. It also explains a plethora of perplexing other information including why the original name for Rome was Saturnia, and why Italy was called the land of Saturn.

About Flare Star

For more than a century, there has been nearly one theory a year to account for the cause of ice ages. Few mysteries of natural science have been as vexing. And just as troublesome has been the question of what brought these ages to an end.

Following the hypothesis proffered in God Star, the prequel to this work, Flare Star sets out to show that Earth’s last Ice Age came suddenly to an end due to the cosmic catastrophe that was caused by the proto-Saturnian system’s entry into the present Sun’s domain of influence.

Very much as in God Star, this is partly demonstrated through the message contained in mankind’s mytho-historical record.

The main evidence for the above supposition, however, derives from the scars of the event that are still etched in Earth’s land-masses and oceanic depths.

Recent discoveries in astronomy and astrophysics also lend their weight in accounting for the detailed sequence of the devastation.

Along the way, various enigmas that have bothered a range of disciplines are thereby elucidated. One of the greatest tectonic upheavals that humanity has ever experienced—encompassing geomagnetic field excursions, diastrophism, global volcanism, the heaping of the ocean onto the land, the extinction of life that followed, and much more—is provided with a catastrophic cause that has eluded researchers until now. Nor can it be said that all of humankind succeeded in dodging the catastrophe, or that those fortunate enough to do so escaped entirely unscathed.

The very concept of deity, the origin of which was traced in God Star, is here also explored further since man ended up blaming his God for having caused the devastation that forever changed his world. Nor is this to be wondered at, seeing as the destruction in question did proceed from the very entity that man himself found reason to endow with what he later termed its divine power.

Author

Dwardu Cardona was born, raised, and educated in Malta, Europe, from where he emigrated to Canada in 1959. Less than a year later, in mid-1960, he became involved in the study of catastrophism and the reconstruction of the Solar System’s cosmic history. He has, since than, acted as a Contributing Editor for KRONOS and, later, as a Senior Editor for the same periodical. He helped in the publication of the journal AEON from 1992 to 1994, and served as its Editor from 1995 to 2006. He was a Founding Father of the Canadian Society for Interdisciplinary Studies (now defunct), and has acted as a consultant on mythology and cosmogony for Chronology and Catastrophism Review, which is the official organ of the British-based Society for Interdisciplinary Studies. He has also acted as the Series Editor for the Osiris Series of books sponsored by Cosmos & Chronos.

As a writer, Cardona has now published well over a hundred articles in various periodicals, as well as the book God Star which forms the prequel to Flare Star. He has additionally lectured at the University of Bergamo, in Italy, and at various organizations in Canada, the United States, and England. He presently makes his home, together with his wife, in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada.
