I put Him as an example of a God having gender.The Abrahamic god isn't thought of as a planet.
A god is whatever you worship.Brahman, Tao and Nirvana are gender neutral and beyond gods.
Many people today rather worship atheistic concepts.
I also know a man whose god is Beer.
Brahma is the Father (Vishnu is the Son, and Shiva is the Holy Ghost).
The Tao is the Son (God's power on Earth).
Nirvana is a state of being (equivalent to being in heaven).
Well, according to the myths .
I gave Earth as an example of a planet which gets given gender even today.Earth is not a dot in the sky (from our perspective).
The Earth, Moon and Venus have always been female in the eyes of man.
The Sun, Mercury, Mars, Jupiter and Saturn have always been depicted male.
Medusa.Example(s) please of Venus' 'terrible aspect and raining destruction.
The myths were already extant by the time of the first know record of peridicities.What time was that? What evidence do you have that the periodicities were not known?
I am going on Velikovsky and Talbot's word here.
Talbot again.Evidence please.
Correct.More planets and moons were not discovered until the mediaeval period, surely?
By the invention of the telescope.
