Adam's Astronomy

by Jane S. Poole
Long before Moses wrote Genesis, the world's first astronomers invented star signs to illustrate a prophecy: a God-man would come to repair the breach between us and the Creator. Those starry figures were pirated, however, and used to advance a false religion which spread all over the world. Faithful men from Noah to the magi of the Christ child stood against that error, yet the true star signs all but vanished for millennia. Adam's Astronomy lays out the original signs, introduces the linguist who recovered them, and explains how she did it.
