Jacob's Limp, Revisited

In previous sections it was concluded that much of the planetary material of our "Adam-Jacob" solar system was acquired from our long-lost twin star "Serpent-Esau." Even so, the sun itself is thought to possess 99% of our solar system's mass. The presence of all the known planets, asteroids and other matter of the solar system does not appreciable alter the center of mass of the entire solar system. This center of revolution ("barycenter") is calculated to be only 30,000 km from the center of the sun, whose radius is around 700,000 km. Consequently, this results in only a very small "limp" and one that seems hardly worthy of mythologizing.

The bigger "limp" of our solar system is of course known as the Precession of the Equinoxes, or simply Precession for short, which is a grand swagger that repeats over a 24,000-26,000 year cycle. Curiously enough, Jacob's permanent limp is attributed to his "wrestling" with and "prevailing" over Esau. This is perhaps some indication that our twin star is still influencing the solar system from afar. This idea is further supported by the orbits of the Extreme Trans-Neptune Objects, including Sedna and the newly discovered "Biden" that have orbits in apparent resonance with the precession cycle. (The orbit of Sedna is ~12,000 years.)

NASA has ruled out any relatively large objects within the Oort Cloud, but presently cannot entirely exclude an object just outside the Oort Cloud.

Other researchers suspect that our solar system may be gravitationally bound to the Sirius star system (8.6 light-years away), as it does not appear to be effected by Precession along with the rest of the night sky. Sirius is a much younger star system than ours, so it cannot be the original binary twin. However, that does not mean it cannot effect our sun's current trajectory through the galaxy. In fact, the current phenomenon of Precession could be a complex mix of stellar influences from our galactic neighborhood, as well as our general orbit around the center of the galaxy.

Nothing in the universe moves in a straight line. Even an airplane moving through Earth's atmosphere assumes two distinct "longitudinal oscillations," known as the short period and the long ("fugoid") period.

The Star-Hopper

"Star-Hopper" is the name given to a planet that moves from one binary star to its twin, either by collision or other means. It's an unfortunate term in that "Star-Hopping" is also used to describe the nocturnal behavior of amateur star-gazers.

The major study to date on Star-Hoppers (the planetary kind) was done several years ago by Kaitlin M. Kratter at the Harvard-Smithsonian Center for Astrophysics.

"We find that stellar evolution can trigger dynamical instabilities that drive planets into chaotic orbits. This instability leads to planet-star collisions, exchange of the planet between the binary stars ('star-hoppers') ..."



Her research indicates that planets are more likely to change orbits from one binary to another when there is a large size difference between the twin stars. Her research and paper on star-hopping concentrated on older star systems, however the same principle would seem to apply to a younger binary pair in which one was a larger star (like our sun) and the twin was a smaller star (such as a Red or Brown Dwarf).


Dr. Kratter since transferred to the University of Colorado where she hosted a lecture on binary star and associated planet simulation:

She has subsequently "hopped on over" to the University of Arizona:

Calling Out All Astrophysicists!

Here is an open challenge to model an original binary star system based on the insights gained from this study. The basic steps are:

1) Demonstrate the feasibility of Saturn being captured (from the twin sun system) through a rear/below ("ambush") impact from Neptune. The impact had to result not only in the capture of Saturn, but also the switching of its orbit to prograde around the new sun (i.e., our sun). This could have been accomplished by a hit from Neptune that was slightly below/behind Saturn, and which caused Saturn to swing out and around the opposing sun. This impact would also have caused the post-impact orbit of Neptune to have become much larger. A tighter initial orbit would have given Neptune the additional leverage and the correct “angle of attack” to swing the orbit of Saturn.

2) Demonstrate the feasibility of Uranus being captured (from the twin sun system) through a key-hole type interaction with Jupiter and/or Saturn or a grazing impact with Neptune. The myths don't describe exactly how Uranus "came over" to our sun, only that it had turned mercenary (i.e., had been "hired with a price").

3) Demonstrate the feasibility of the rocky planets Venus and Earth being created by a nearly head-on (“slicing, beheading”) impact to proto-Uranus from a smaller but very dense planet (iron-rich proto-Mercury) that had in its tow at least two satellites (with the size and density of proto-Mars and proto-Sedna). The impact was such that "diminished" Uranus (itself newly captured) moved to an outer orbit. The planetoids of the far smaller impacting group were repelled backwards and assumed various prograde orbits around our sun. Proto-Mercury was repelled almost 180 degrees and "led" Uranus toward the orbital position of Neptune. Mars deflected into an inner orbit. The smallest of the invading group, proto-Sedna, was bounced toward an even more extreme outer (Trans-Neptune) orbit. Note that prior to the impact Uranus would have had a nearly identical size to Neptune. It lost about two Earth-masses due to the collision.

Not of This Earth

"Modern Science" has difficulty coming to grips with extremely rare events. It demands certainty and repeatability. However, processes in the Universe are so random that every solar system could in fact be unique. The odds of our solar system taking the precise configuration we now see are essentially zero. It may not be possible with any simulation (and certainly not with any that exists today) to reproduce exactly what happened in our neck of the galactic woods. And this in turn tells us something about the Universe. It is more about extremes than averages. It is a place where anything that can happen eventually does happen, but it might not ever happen again! Only a miniscule change in initial conditions can produce an entirely different outcome. Where and how life takes root is not entirely predictable, if at all predictable. That is not to say that life cannot and has not developed in other solar systems. It most definitely has, but probably with a different set of adaptations.

Is the ancient cosmology derived from Myth and the Bible perfect? Surely not, either due to the distortions of time and cultural retelling, or the inherent challenge of reconstructing complex cosmic interactions that occurred billions of years ago. Regardless, our solar system was “special” enough for someone or something (God, ET, or whatever you prefer) to make the extraordinary effort of determining its basic origins and formation, that is, to derive its own custom cosmology (from the reference frame of Earth). If this were not enough, the cosmology of our solar system was further connected to another specific but larger cosmology of the Milky Way Galaxy. This layered, fractal-like cosmology was then imprinted upon human civilization in the form of allegories, and kept alive through role playing in each successive generation of the ancient royal family.

Although there is a little more astronomical detail that can be squeezed out of the stories of Jacob, Joseph and Moses, it is already abundantly clear that the entirety of Genesis and Exodus hangs on a sophisticated cosmological framework - at least what was left of it at the time these books were composed. Each Patriarch and Matriarch encodes an aspect of a cosmological story that is every bit as bizarre as it is fixed. There is also a very high degree of consistency between the Biblical narratives and the Mythological sources from which they were drawn. In other words, it doesn’t appear that anyone could have just made this up. It is a vestige of received knowledge that came from someone or something “not of this Earth.”

Live Long, and Prosper

Today the Sci-fi community mourns the loss of possibly the most infamous name in space travel...Leonard Nimoy. He was 83.

See video
/> As a science fiction lover who grew up on Star Trek and Star Wars, the news of this really kicked me in the face. But perhaps most saddening was not the Vulcan's passing, but the insensitive way the talk show radio hosts made fun of the devotees of Nimoy (cosplayers and Vulcans) who were kind enough to send the family of Nimoy a simpathy letter. I don't care your opinion on fans, but too make fun of them now in their time of grief, what a low piece of shit you are! If I could get a recording of it I would but a small town New Jersey radio station probably wouldn't be easy to find. He was more than an actor and more than Spock. He was a poet and a brilliant actor. Does anyone remember the 1970s/80s series "In Search Of"? Well I do and I loved watching it on YouTube since I wasn't alive when it was on the sir. Better than any of the crap History Channel put on nowadays. But a digress. Take a moment to remember Nimoy today, he inspired many of us to boldly go where we hadn't before...

RIP Mr. Nimoy...see you in the next life.

"Look to the Stars"

After Noah, no other figure receives more than a passing mention until Abraham. The Old Kingdom in particular appears to be slighted by the Genesis authors. Nimrod (Pharaoh Narmer) gets a two-verse nod as a killer on the level of the Lord (Ninurta-Marduk), but that’s all. The main person of interest in Genesis is not a hunter-warrior (i.e., destroyer), but a mild-mannered cultivator of human relations and the celestial arts. He is reckoned as deserving of twelve entire chapters (Genesis 12 -23) and portions of two others (Genesis 24-25). Abraham is the central character of the Book of Genesis. He is also the one curiously commanded to look toward the heavens and even count the stars. In extra-biblical tradition, Abraham is more specifically identified as the leading astronomer of his Age. With this now in mind, an interpretation of the Torah from the perspective of astrophysics and cosmology takes on renewed focus and significance.

The reserved and stately Abraham is the renaissance man of his times. Although his wife was barren, Abraham not only allows her to seek other partners, but escorts her to the courts of highly qualified relatives. (Genesis 12) With chivalry Abraham avoids conflict, almost to a fault. (Genesis 13) Yet, when a World War is inevitable he also becomes a deciding factor in its outcome. As in the days of Noah, there was “drought in the land.” And again, something big is about to break loose. In the so-called war of “Four Kings Against Five” (Genesis 14), Abraham is implicitly the tenth king in a “pantheon” of ancient kings. Also, as the eldest son of Terah, Abraham is the “firstborn” in terms of kingly inheritance (“birthright”), and therefore initially the greatest of the ten. However, he survives a flood of invaders by voluntarily laying down his claim to kingship for the greater good.

According to the received planetary model, our four inner rocky planets could only be “born” and established through the “death” of a gas giant planet. Uranus lost its place as the innermost planet and became instead one of the five outer planets. It joined the three other gas giants and an Extreme Trans-Neptune Object (ETNO) Sedna (with its “followers”). Likewise, Abraham lost out in terms of the royal succession of his day, but gained a form of immortality (ala Noah) from the role he played in establishing a New Covenant and New Kingdom on the Earth. After the ugly conflict, peace was proclaimed by the High Priest Melchizedek (“King of Righteousness”), a name associated with the high-minded Joseph/Ptah typecasting). This echoes the restored order to the solar system regulated by upright Jupiter in the early solar system, and one that continues to this day!

The role of Abraham (as the split/divided planet Uranus) is further emphasized by an elaborate five-fold offering that he is commanded to prepare (Genesis 15). Five is the number of Issachar/Osiris, and the five sacrifices are named as a heifer, goat and ram, each three years old, as well as a dove and young pigeon. Three is the number of (partial) days of Osiris in the tomb and the number of (partial) years of Noah in the ark with his own animals. After Abraham cuts each into two parts, the Lord passes between the divided sacrifices (as Marduk-Bel burned his way into the planet Uranus). A truce between natural enemies (opposing cosmological roles) was affirmed. Abraham is later required (Genesis 17) to become circumcised, again in apparent honor of the circumcised planet Uranus. The whole earth was to be blessed on account of Abraham, even as the Earth itself came into being and was blessed on account of the “sacrifice” of Uranus“ that had been “consumed” by Marduk-Bel.

Of all the remnants of Marduk, the planet Mars had the best chance of supporting life. Although Mars tragically died as a planet, it had a significant role in helping Earth become a place that did reach the next level of planetary success. In the story of Abraham, there are two episodes that emulate the rescue of Mars, first from capture by hostile forces and then from fiery destruction. A third episode encodes the ultimate demise of Mars. The rescue of Mars is dramatized by Abraham’s recovery of his nephew Lot during the battle of “Four Kings Against Five,” and again during Abraham’s mission of mercy to Sodom and Gomorrah, which were destroyed by missiles from above.” The name Lot is short for Nimlot and a close variant of Nimrod, “the mighty hunter before the Lord” (mentioned above). However, this latest incarnation of the renowned warrior is essentially helpless and in need of redemption by the hand of Abraham, not once but twice. In the second rescue (Genesis 19), Abraham is not able to save the towns of Sodom and Gomorrah (as there was no hope for Mercury and Sedna), but does negotiate for the liberation of his “nephew” Lot (Mars) and two daughters. Mars has no surviving moons of large size. There are, however, two small moons, Phobos and Deimos, that have very low orbits, much like the daughters of Lot around their demoralized father.

The third Mars-related episode is the “sacrifice” of Isaac. (Genesis 22) It is very bizarre and downright cruel in human terms, but comprehensible as enacted cosmology. Mars was in fact “saved” from being captured (as a moon of a larger planet such as Jupiter or even the Sun) and also spared utter annihilation from a further major impact. However, after showing early potential for life, it lost its atmosphere and internal heat. Its demise was likely hastened by a steady pounding from asteroids, many of which would have been the by-products of the very collision that created Mars as an independent planet in the first place. The same planet, Uranus, that “fathered” (or “mothered”) Mars was also responsible for “killing” it. Hence, the very strange portrayal in Genesis. Lot and Isaac are two complementary elements of a single planetary role. Both were needed to fulfill the total cosmology. (See note below.)

The heroes of Genesis were callously swept aside by their more ruthless lords of their day. We wouldn’t even have heard about Abraham if not for the Book of Genesis. We are told that Abraham purchased a tomb among the Hittites, “the Sons of Terror.” (Genesis 23) This reflects the “burial” of Uranus way out toward the menacing Kuiper Belt. Uranus passed beyond the visible planets. Likewise, Abraham left almost no trace in the archaeological record, and certainly little that would identify him as one of the most influential persons of all time. This irony and paradox is the main spiritual message of Genesis. One does not necessarily have to be ruler of the world (“win the election”) to change the world. It is the same message that resounds in the plays of Shakespeare that were produced by a doomed royal court in exile. And in a world of seven billion people, it is a theme that we still hope can be true today. Is it still possible for an individual to transcend their circumstances and become that “100th monkey” or “black swan” that breaks the mold and alters the future? Can something transitory still leave an indelible mark? Is it still possible for a rejected person to become the founder of an acceptable movement.

Note: Abraham’s legal son and heir Isaac had not yet been born at the time of the great battle of “Four Kings Against Five.” Therefore, the role of Mars had to be played by an older prince.

Note: As the role of Moses (Marduk) would later assimilate an aspect of Noah (Uranus), so the role of Abraham (Uranus) deliberately assimilates an aspect of Moses (Marduk). When Abraham goes to Egypt, a plague is brought down on the house of pharaoh, after which Abraham flees with the spoils of the court. This was a subtle jab at the barbaric, aggressive role of Marduk-Bel, and simultaneously venerating the more civilized Abraham as the greatest role player of his generation and of all time. A more cynical view would be that the royal court needed role players, and therefore also found it necessary to establish paragons of fidelity for future courtiers to emulate.

Note: We have learned that Genesis 4 is a composite (and highly compressed) model of our solar system’s formation that is “twisted together” with a king-list of the first gods who “assumed human form.” Genesis 5 is similarly a composite of the humanoid antecessors of modern man twisted together with a king-list from the Egyptian Middle Kingdom. After the composite account of Noah’s Flood, the Book of Genesis finally initiates a linear royal history of the world, that is, one that is more consistent with what we would consider a proper history today. This continuous history starts with the Egyptian Old Kingdom, which crucially also emerged from a catastrophic flood event. In fact, it is that particular disaster that seems to have compelled ancient man to adopt writing as a means of preserving knowledge. Despite the transition from parallel to serial history (after Genesis 9), there is still the occasional flashback and allusion in the running narrative to former (pre-historic) times in the subsequent chapters of Genesis. For example, the original “Tower of Babel” (Genesis 11) was built prior to the Egyptian Old Kingdom and the contemporary Mesopotamian culture of Sumer. Monumental architecture was revived in Pharaonic times and it was accompanied by new set-backs. Nevertheless, everything about ancient culture was precedent-based and viewed only as an endless repetition of a cosmic pattern.

Adrift on the Cosmic Sea

The Flood is a fact of life in the Cosmos, and is caused by a wide variety of sources ranging from an isolated supernova to the merging of entire galaxies. In 4 billion years of existance, Earth must have endured nearly the entire gamut of flood events, and yet here it still is! In a sense, the entire planet of Earth is an Ark. It is a repository of life in a staggering diversity of forms. It need serve no higher purpose than that. And this is the message that seems to be conveyed in the Biblical story. Noah’s mandate was to both save life and remain alive, but not to remain as the gods. He was reduced from god-king to caretaker.

Flood myths are found the world over. The Greeks knew of three floods and three flood heroes. Between the deluge that ended the last Ice Age and the time of the Bible’s writing, thousands of years had passed and numerous devastating floods had occurred. The Book of Genesis telescopes all of these into a single “one-size-fits-all” account (Genesis 6-9), and places it at the end of a list of Egyptian Middle Kingdom rulers (Genesis 5). Although this may seem odd, the Egyptian Middle Kingdom was in fact terminated by the last of the epic floods in ancient times that plagued Egypt. The structure of Genesis was carefully architected.

The totality of floods that the human race had to survive were of such magnitude that they are depicted in Genesis as a repetition of the flood that defined the formation of our solar system itself, that being the one caused by a collision between “Marduk” and “Kingu” as told in the Enuma Elish and between “Gilgamesh” and “Enkidu” in the Epic of Gilgamesh. Noah (Hebrew Nuw-akh) is placed in the role of Kingu/Enkidu. Nuw-Akh is, in effect, a new-Akh (a neo-Osiris), who was laid on his back, shut up inside his own ark, and then set adrift on the sea. Like the Egyptian god Osiris, Noah “came forth” from his dark ordeal alive. The Hebrew word used for ark is derived from the Egyptian word for “coffin,” and the proportions of the ark are likewise that of a sarcophagus. This is of course the intended symbolic message. Earthly experience is being depicted as a cosmic rite of passage.

Like “Kingu,” the kingship of Noah was sacrified for the good of mankind. Like “Enkidu,” Noah won the immediate battle, but lost the war. His sacrificial effort allowed human (royal) life to go on, but he lost his exalted rank. Like “Osiris,” Noah fell on his ass after getting drunk on wine. Noah’s “son” Ham helped him complete the undignified part of the typecasting by assuming the role of Ullikummis (Shara, an aspect of Marduk) and penetrating his “father” where the sun don’t shine. In planetary terms, Noah is in the role Uranus, which was knocked flat on its back from a cosmic combination shot and then floated away until it washed up in a new and distant orbital home.

Prior to the Flood, Noah had earned his bones by carrying out the commands of his superiors, the gods, and no matter how much hardship this placed upon his fellow man. After the Flood, it was time for Noah to take his rest. The mission was complete. There were no more monuments to build and no more terra firma to subdue. The new “covenant” was simply one of “Occupy Earth.” Upon the unwarranted disgrace of Ham’s son Canaan (see note below), Shem became the priestly (spiritual) founder of the new line. But, it was Japheth that assumed the political (material) power. In terms of cosmology, this progression echoed that of Jupiter in re-assuming the central (“big brother”) role in governing the early planetary system and ensuring a relatively safe place for life to develop on Earth.

Note: Canaan, as a neo-Cain, receives an obligatory but equally uncalled for curse. This followed the violation of “The Man” Noah by Ham (in the place of the earlier Lamech). The original pattern is acted out in reverse, and this also serves to negate the earlier mission of subjugation in order to replace it with one of peaceful cohabitation.

Note: The baby Moses was also set adrift within an “ark.” This was a deliberate identification with both Noah and especially Ham son of Noah. Although the role of Moses is primarily that of Marduk/Gilgamesh, an aspect of the Noah role was also incorporated, perhaps because Ham was in the Ark with Noah. This will be a subject for a dedicated section on Moses.

Note: Commentators have previously noted that Noah entered his ark on the same (“unlucky 17th”) day of the month that Osiris was shut up inside his own ark. Osiris was “resurrected” after three days in his “tomb.” Noah’s odyssey was much longer, however it was construed as having bridged three years – a whole year and a small portion of two other years. Likewise, in the New Testament, the Noah/Osiris of the Gospels is in his tomb for only one full day (Saturday) and small parts of two other days (Friday and Sunday).

Note: The Biblical Flood mentions subterranean sources of flood water, which seem to reflect the Egyptian belief that the true source of the Nile was underground. It is now known that natural springs do provide significant amounts of water for both the White and Blue Nile, most notably at Lake Victoria (White Nile) and Lake Tana (Blue Nile).

Vaccines - It's Not That Simple


"After six months and nearly one billion tweets on Twitter, it took a media frenzy over a small measles outbreak in California at the beginning of 2015 to draw the attention of some in the national media to finally start reporting on the significance of the CDC Whistleblower story from the summer of 2014.

Patrick Howley of The Daily Caller has reported that the Obama administration has granted whistleblower immunity to Dr. William Thompson, a senior epidemiologist at the CDC who co-authored and published research on the MMR vaccine for the CDC back in 2004. His decision to become a whistleblower and reveal data that was concealed by the CDC linking the MMR vaccine to autism among African American boys was revealed during the summer of 2014."

Autism Epidemic - Some Proposed Causes

The Tangled Web - Glyphosate (Roundup) aluminum (chemtrails, antacids, deodorants, sunscreen) mercury (vaccine preservatives, cavity filler) The awful synergy.


Castration Anxiety

Before moving on with the Genesis narrative, here are a few points to consider about the Hittite Creation Epics.

-Even as in Genesis 4, the Hittite version begins with the “killing” of Alal (Abel) by Anus (Cain).


-The “double homicide” of Lamech is conflated into a single attack. Kumarbis, the Hittite Marduk, only attacks Anus, and Anus stands in for both of the twin planets struck by Marduk, namely Uranus and Neptune.

-Kumarbis, like Marduk-Bel is a complex god/planet and consists of many elements:

(1)Adad/Teshub the Storm God (Horus the Elder) comes forth from the “body” of Kumarbis and features prominently (as in the Mesopotamian and Egyptian versions).

(2) Ullikummis the son of Adad (Horus the Younger son of Horus the Elder) is also very prominent.

There is much concern for the safety of Ullikummis and he is hiden away in a marsh, even as Horus the Younger was hidden away in his youth.

Ullikummis is small like the younger Horus, but exceptionally strong, and as if made of “diorite.” As in the Epic of Gilgamesh, he is the “human” element of the Marduk planetary complex. In the Hittite version, he is even said to have been born of a human, i.e., commoner, mother. He is the Hittite analog of Hercules.

Ullikummis is fashioned as a “rival to the gods.” This is in contrast to Enkidu in the Epic of Gilgamesh, who is created to oppose Gilgamesh alone. It is actually Gilgamesh that breaks all the rules and by extension opposes all the gods. The main Biblical analog is Moses, who is also “against all the gods.” Gilgamesh (like Marduk) is the lone surviving planet of the rival twin solar system and must be dealt with before peace can be restored. Ullikummis is an aspect of Kumarbis/Marduk, even as the Horus typecasting is included in the Moses story. For example, Moses is hidden among the bulrushes as an infant. (There will more discussion about Moses and Marduk later).

After the solar system defining “crash,” the dwarf planet Ullikummis (a.k.a. Telepinus) is ejected the furthest of his fellows, and only after much time and difficulty is presuaded to return. This reflects the extreme trans-Neptune orbit (ETNO) of this Horus planet (Sedna) and its “companions/followers.”

(3) Ubelluris is a third member of the Hittite Marduk, and this name clearly evokes Marduk’s epithet of Bel. Mythographers liken him to the Greek Atlas, which further corresponds to the Egyptian god Geb and Hebrew Reuben eldest son of Jacob. We have previously idenitified this aspect of Marduk as the future planet Mercury.

The Hittite tale places the little god Ullikummis at the right shoulder of Ubelluris (prior to the impact that led to the dissolution of Kumarbis/Marduk), which seems to relate to a Biblical epithet of Horus the Younger, that being, Benjamin, “son of the right (side/hand/shoulder).”

The role of the "right arm" in this planetary battle is also glorified in the Biblical Song of Moses (Marduk):

"Thy right hand, O Lord, glorious in power, thy right hand, O Lord, shatters the enemy. In the greatness of thy majesty thou overthrowest thy adversaries; thou sendest forth thy fury, it consumes them like stubble. At the blast of thy nostrils the water piled up, the floods stood up in a heap; the deeps congealed in the heart of the sea." -Exodus 15:6-8 (RSV)

Note: The Great Flood and the Exodus accounts are two different perspectives of the same cosmic event. In the Flood narrative, the planet Kingu/Endidu (Noah) is the hero/survivor, whereas in the Exodus the planet Marduk/Gilgamesh (Moses) is the tragic/expiring victor.

(4) The Dragon Illuyankas is perhaps a fourth member of the Kumarbis group, or simply a name for Kumarbis or one of the main constituents, such as Ubelluris. There is a clear correspondence between the “Dragon” and characterizations of Apophis in Egypt and Bel of Babylon.

-Castration of Anus by Kumarbis is a central theme in the Hittite epic, even as it is in Genesis. Cain complains that the blow to his manhood is more than he can bear. This metaphor carried over into Greek mythology, as well. Chronos (Saturn/Abel) is said to have castrated Uranus (Neptune/Cain), but was then overthrown by Zeus (Jupiter). Note the inversion of the Cain and Abel story here. Saturn and Uranus have near identical 29 degree titling of their spin, which appears to have been acquired at least partly by their mutual collision.


In the Hittite legends, Ea (Jupiter) is quite influential, as is Shamash, who is called Utu instead. The prominence of the Storm God (proto-Mars) is unexpected (as in Mesopotamian and Egyptian stories), and again points to some extra-solar system bias.

The emphasis in the Hittite legends is not only on the stock theme of avengement, but also on the internal conflict within the Kumarbis clan. These conflicts seem to have taken place both before AND after the crucial battle with Anus. The "Storm God" (Mars) was in for a rocky road ahead during the "Late Heavy Bombardment" of asteroids. The extreme orbit of Ullikummis did not seem to spare it further violence. Although the serial impacts of Marduk with Uranus followed by Neptune are reduced to one, the Hittite accounts provide uniuqe details about the nature of Marduk not found in other Creation Stories, and are therefore of potential use in reconstructing a more accurate cosmology.
