This site is named for Firmament and Chaos, my first two books that reveal the true, exciting past of the Earth and the Planets - explaining how a period of over three millennia of cosmic catastrophism resulted in the Earth and the solar system we experience today.. This has been possible because the body of ancient myth, from which it is derived, contains graphic descriptions of the events which unfolded in the heavens close to the Earth. These cosmic encounters were observed, feared and worshiped by one hundred generations of our progenitors. Indeed, the fear of these massive glowing spheres approaching the Earth was the origin of all pagan religions. This is why the same common themes run through the myths of all cultures. Venus and Mars approached the Earth over one hundred times and were the single most important drivers of ancient history, the facts of which have never before been revealed. The entire scenario, derived in Firmament, is consistent with the Christian Bible as well as ancient myth, thereby unifying scientific and religious views.

Most Recent Update
My new book Peleh: Hidden Knowledge, just published in September 2006, expands and clarifies the scenario of planetary chaos, covering the last 6,000 years, presented in the earlier books, giving the history of the solar system. The new book explores in depth a question implicit in the first two, that is: "How and Why has this knowledge of recent cosmic catastrophism remained hidden for over 2,500 years?" The answer to this question plumbs the depths of the most profound of human concepts, God himself. See Books > Peleh: Hidden Knowledge excerpt and > Purchase Books.

The most beautiful thing we can experience is the mysterious.
It is the source of all true art and all science.
He to whom this emotion is a stranger,
who can no longer pause to wonder and stand rapt in awe,
is as good as dead:
His eyes are closed.
