I know this thread is old but I was reading back over some of the old ones tonight and, you'll have to pardon my forgetfulness, but I think it was Chuck Missler who had a bunch of information on the constellations mentioned in Job. If I could remember where it was I'd reference it, but at any rate, he stated that the Job references were, or behaved, exactly as written and that "science" was only now seeing just how accurate the Bible was on this subject.

I'll try to find the info and post it... it really was fascinating!

Now I feel like Ahimaaz... "I saw a great tumult, but I knew not what it was."

[2Sa 18:19-23, 29 KJV] 19 Then said Ahimaaz the son of Zadok, Let me now run, and bear the king tidings, how that the LORD hath avenged him of his enemies. 20 And Joab said unto him, Thou shalt not bear tidings this day, but thou shalt bear tidings another day: but this day thou shalt bear no tidings, because the king's son is dead. 21 Then said Joab to Cushi, Go tell the king what thou hast seen. And Cushi bowed himself unto Joab, and ran. 22 Then said Ahimaaz the son of Zadok yet again to Joab, But howsoever, let me, I pray thee, also run after Cushi. And Joab said, Wherefore wilt thou run, my son, seeing that thou hast no tidings ready? 23 But howsoever, [said he], let me run. And he said unto him, Run. Then Ahimaaz ran by the way of the plain, and overran Cushi.

... 29 And the king said, Is the young man Absalom safe? And Ahimaaz answered, When Joab sent the king's servant, and [me] thy servant, I saw a great tumult, but I knew not what [it was].


I want to believe!

If you can find it I would be highly interested in reading it! I'll look myself as well if I have time.

Concerning Orion there was a huge amount of interest in ancient religions about it. As I recall off the top of my head the ancient Egyptians believed the path to eternity led through Orion. They and other ancient cultures had a lot to say about it. So what is interesting to me is that it is mentioned in the bible.

The Giza pyramid complex in Egypt for eg. is an exact representation of Orions belt. Those pyramids contain very advanced mathematical astronomical geometric formulas. As well as other advanced science. The egyptologists think these are interesting conundrums that have nothing to do with the age of the pyramids or their use as resting places for the pharaohs.
Which to my mind is nosense but like other professionals they aren't going to let wackos eccentrics pseudo-archeologists and christian fundies like me upset their carefully ordered applecarts. In my opinion they were built by refugees from the tower of babel trying to rebuild their lost civilization from before the flood. A civilization that by far exceeded ours.

Since this thread was started I have done some reading about these matters and would be very interested in what Missler had to say.

I should add that I am extremely careful reading about ancient religions and related issues. Most of researchers and commentators on those subjects are decidedly not christian and usually into things I am very leery of.

Edited to add for anyone knowledgeable that the ancients path to eternity was through the milky way. Orions belt refered to other matters.
