Mars & Mercury in Irish Myth

As explained in many posts on this site, Mars repeatedly orbited the Earth, stationary in the heavens above the Himalayas for 14.4 years and then left for 15.6 years. This happened 100 times!  It rotated slowly like a great wheel. All of the life on it was slowly blasted to the earth when it passed through alignments with the Moon or with the Sun and Moon combined. This all occurred between 3687 and 687 BC, not millions of years ago. So most myths in every country concern this deity. In Irish myth Mars was called Dagda, thought to be derived from “the good God”. Because all forms of life, in the form of Soma, or manna which contained living sprouts, minerals, red soil, water, salt rained down he was said to have a cauldron.

The way in which Mars escaped its orbit each time was close encounters of other bodies (Venus) caused Mars solid iron core to come out through what is now called the Valles Marineris, which zoomed around the Earth to the east in a slingshot maneuver causing the outer shell to be released to the west. But each time the solid iron core gradually caught up to the outer shell and reentered. There was a reason for this, having to do with the raising and moving the continents of the Earth. (enter continents in the search box). This catching up took 8 days (nine nights) and is celebrated in many cultures without knowing the story. i. e. the passover celebration of the Jews.

Greek myth called the solid iron core Hermes, and credit him with “inventing the lyre”, a stringed instrument, because as it came out of the Valles Marineris the rocks scratched a number of parallel lines on its surface. Obviously the Irish myth is describing how the Harp always returned to the Dagda is description of the same event, seen by one hundred generations of mankind. This whole Vedic Period ended when the core was deflected by Venus and the two went into the inner solar system,while the outer shell collapsed in on itself and drifted into the outer solar system. So Dagda’s  Harp became the planet Mercury. I think I’ll have me a Guiness now.
