I read the following statement on Stonehenge etc.
"I thought this was a good point. Genesis 1:14 says God created the sun, moon
and stars for "signs and seasons." The folks who created Stonehenge, etc.
served their people in the same capacity as astronomers and meterologists do
for us today, in addition to being astrologers, but perhaps not in the way we
think of astrology today.I thought this was a good point. Genesis 1:14 says God
created the sun, moon"
I have my doubts about this interpretation. The astronomical role of these sites
could have been satisfied with a line of rocks on the ground, or even sticks
(cf. woodhenge) but the people (certainly not Celts) went to the trouble of
spending generations to build elaborate monoliths. Particularly in the case
of Newgrange. The Celts who came later may have used these sites to predict
seasons etc. but to the original builders they must have been much more. I
suspect the builders were their social equivalent of our priests,
philosophers, scientists and Steven Hawking roled into one.
