Flare Star


This  book is the second in the series–the first being God Star–by the former editor of AEON: A Journal of Myth, Science and Ancient History

For more than a century, there has been nearly one theory a year to account for the cause of ice ages. Few mysteries of natural science have been as vexing. And just as troublesome has been the question of what brought these ages to an end.

Following the hypothesis proffered in God Star, the prequel to this work, Flare Star sets out to show that Earth’s last Ice Age came suddenly to an end due to the cosmic catastrophe that was caused by the proto-Saturnian system’s entry into the present Sun’s domain of influence.

Very much as in God Star, this is partly demonstrated through the message contained in mankind’s mytho-historical record.

The main evidence for the above supposition, however, derives from the scars of the event that are still etched in Earth’s land-masses and oceanic depths.

Recent discoveries in astronomy and astrophysics also lend their weight in accounting for the detailed sequence of the devastation.

Along the way, various enigmas that have bothered a range of disciplines are thereby elucidated. One of the greatest tectonic upheavals that humanity has ever experienced—encompassing geomagnetic field excursions, diastrophism, global volcanism, the heaping of the ocean onto the land, the extinction of life that followed, and much more—is provided with a catastrophic cause that has eluded researchers until now. Nor can it be said that all of humankind succeeded in dodging the catastrophe, or that those fortunate enough to do so escaped entirely unscathed.

The very concept of deity, the origin of which was traced in God Star, is here also explored further since man ended up blaming his God for having caused the devastation that forever changed his world. Nor is this to be wondered at, seeing as the destruction in question did proceed from the very entity that man himself found reason to endow with what he later termed its divine power.

About the Author
Dwardu Cardona was born, raised, and educated in Malta, Europe, from where he emigrated to Canada in 1959. Less than a year later, in mid-1960, he became involved in the study of catastrophism and the reconstruction of the Solar System’s cosmic history. He had, since then, acted as a Contributing Editor for KRONOS and, later, as a Senior Editor for the same periodical. He helped in the publication of the journal AEON from 1992 to 1994, and served as its Editor from 1995 to 2006. He was a Founding Father of the Canadian Society for Interdisciplinary Studies (now defunct), and had acted as a consultant on mythology and cosmogony for Chronology and Catastrophism Review, which is the official organ of the British-based Society for Interdisciplinary Studies. He had also acted as the Series Editor for the Osiris Series of books sponsored by Cosmos & Chronos.

As a writer, Cardona published well over a hundred articles in various periodicals, most of them on the subject covered in the present book. He also lectured by invitation at the University of Bergamo, Italy, as well as at various organizations in Canada, the United States, and England.
