Richard,

Would it be possible to start a section on the Forum (maybe under Religion and Spirituality, etc) for "Astrotheology". This could be the place that we discuss the influences of ancients' veneration of the zodiac, sun, moon, etc. I think it would be great to have a section where we could accumulate information about the role of ancient astrology on religion...where it all started. The video below is an excerpt from the Zietgeist film on the subject. Although they do have a number of errors in their historical comparisons of Jesus with other venerated Sun Gods, they still have some good information for people who have never been exposed to the concepts. Thanks.

That video is appalling in its inaccuracies.

I'm glad you posted it. It shows that atheism can, in some cases, become a mind-killing religion just like all the others.

As for a new subforum - that's a good idea. We need Mythology section. It would go well there for starters. If you have a better suggestion, please let me know.

Nope. No other suggestion...Mythology sounds like a good place for it. Thanks! :signthankspin:
