The Cosmic Origin of the RgVeda

The RgVeda, correctly interpreted, describes cosmic encounters which destroyed the serpentine, dinosaur-dominated Earth then rained down a new crust filled with modern life forms from Mars to terraform the Earth in a short 3,000 years while our forebears looked on in wonder. Venus (as Agni) destroyed the dinosaur world, The life-forms we accept, including all mammals, flowering plants and fruit trees were transferred from Mars (Indra), and the 30-year cyclic repetitions of the encounters were made possible by eight day appearances of Mercury (Sarama), thus the Passover celebration of eight days. The cosmic events were far more powerful than any imagined by modern geologists, planetary scientists or even science fiction writers.

Modern science has been completely fooled by the present quiescent state of the solar system, leading to the unproven, indeed unproveable illusion that nothing has changed for  billions of years. The truth is that nothing visible in the solar system today is older than 6,000 years. All features on the surface of Mars are the detritus of 3,000 years of convulsions completed only 2,600-years BP. Mercury, Venus, the asteroid belt, and the Galilean moons were not present 6,000 years ago.  Astronomers teach condescendingly that clear evidence of water flowing on Mars is billions of years old. They fail to comprehend that these features would all have been obliterated by meteorite impacts in even one million years.

Below is the Table of Contents of “The Cosmic Origin of the RgVeda” by John Ackerman, which explains, for the first time in the history of the world, the meaning of the RgVeda. Including 42 Figures. The book has been offered to Penguin Random House India, which responded with an automated message that the ‘review’ will require six months from the Sept.7, 2018 submission date. The world has been waiting 2,705 years since the end of the Vedic Period, so a few more months does not seem such a long time. I will probably self-publish rather than waiting til then.
