Decoding Greek Mythology

A remarkable discovery has emerged in astrophysics: key properties of the universe have just the right values to make life possible. Most scientists prefer to explain away this uniqueness, insisting that a number of unseen universes must therefore exist, each randomly different. Astrophysicist Bernard Haisch joins George Knapp to propose the alternative—that the special properties of our universe reflect an underlying intelligence. In the second half, veteran journalist Chris Taylor will discuss how the Star Wars franchise has conquered our culture with a sense of lightness and exuberance, while remaining serious enough to influence politics, and spread a spirituality that appeals to religious groups and atheists alike.

From 6-10pm PT, Art Bell: Somewhere in Time returns to 6/23/95 for one of Richard C. Hoagland's first show appearances. He addresses NASA's cover-up of the 'Face on Mars.' Listen here.

Decoding Greek Mythology

Show Archive
Date: Wednesday - August 11, 2004
Host: George Noory
Guests: Robert Bowie Johnson Jr.

Robert Bowie Johnson Jr., the author of The Parthenon Code, presented his view of Greek mythology, which he contends tells the same story of ancient human history as the Book of Genesis. Yet, the Greeks, he believes, were viewing events from a different perspective than that of the Bible, in which the serpent enlightened mankind, and that it was liberty for humans to know of good and evil.

Through his decoding of artwork, at places such as the Parthenon in Athens, Johnson suggested that scenes of the Greek gods battling Giants, actually represented their celebration over defeating "Noah and his Yahweh-believing children." In fact, he said, there are seven sculptural themes that all relate to Noah in some way at the Parthenon. Called Nereus, or the "Wet One," Noah is represented in many sculpted and painted Greek images, he added.

Johnson also drew parallels between the Greek gods (whom he viewed as human beings) and biblical figures. Athena was born of Zeus, just as Eve was born of Adam, and both females were connected with serpents, he noted.
