OK, I will have to make Stellarium charts for those years. I don't remember if I looked around the years prior to 70 CE, but I'll do that as well. Thank Dogod that I only need to keep on the equinox date on September 23 to find candidate years.
I'm not sure what other planet besides Jupiter would make a good candidate for a new savior, within the 'pagan' mythos of such as Castor and Pollux being the prior (to Jesus) savior sons of Zeus- Jupiter, in any case.Allowing for variant planet counts would add more incidents, some of which might meet the "malingering Jupiter" parameter.
Isn't the top of most 'decent' people's clothing starting at their shoulders, that is, if they are wearing a hood?But on the other hand, the sun is at Virgo's shoulder, not necessarily appearing as 'clothing'.
Arbitrary or not, that's what it is. Maybe some ultra-conspiratorial team of constellation determinators specifically set the number to nine, knowing what the planetary conditions would be on September 23, 2017, and therefore ..... the number is not .... 'arbitrary'And furthermore, as Sarfati complains, it's an arbitrary convention that Leo contains 9 stars.
There's always a dragon (snake) or two in the heavens Jerry. The 'heads', 'horns', and 'crowns' are symbolic imagery borrowed from Daniel where it is explicit that these refer to kingdoms and empires. Possibly we are supposed to apply the precept of 'as below, so above' to the interpretation here.Revelations 12:3 continues: And there appeared another wonder in heaven; and behold a great red dragon, having seven heads and ten horns, and seven crowns upon his heads. In 2017, where is this red dragon in the heavens? If the 2017 event is supposed to fit Revelation 12 like a key fits a lock, wouldn't we expect some reasonably transparent manifestation of this prophecy as well?
