Ev Cochrane: Mars the Warrior-Hero | Space News

It’s perhaps one of the great unresolved yet overlooked mysteries facing academia and science — the extraordinary identities of planets in myth and tradition. Nothing in the familiar ideas about our history can explain the incredible patterns, found in extensive cross-cultural comparison, of words, phrases, imagery and storytelling describing a former age of gods and goddesses, of heroes and monsters.

In ancient myth, Mars is identified as a masculine, warrior-hero figure, a dragon slayer, the god of war. Does anything in Mars’ appearance in our sky today explain this global pattern?

For decades, Ev Cochrane, a colleague of Dave Talbott and the late Dwardu Cardona, has investigated this question. Ev has authored four books, including Martian Metamorphoses: The Planet Mars in Ancient Myth & Religion. In part one of this two-part presentation, we asked Ev to begin by elaborating the incredible global patterns in myth and tradition identifying Mars as the warrior hero.
