Reading Old Reminders in
Astronomical Revelations or 666
In his 1997 review of Larry Brian Radka's Astronomical Revelations or 666, Brent Raynes, in his journal of Alternate Perceptions, wrote:
"Radka cites evidence that Venus, the 'morning star,' was very significant to widely separated cultures like the Babylonians, Mayans, and Peruvians, and he sees it as symbolic of Christ and the unicorn, while Jupiter, he points out, was associated with the eagle and to Satan. Radka cites Biblical scriptures to show that stars, comets, and other heavenly bodies were associated with divine personalities such as with various angels, with Christ, and with Satan.
"Although some readers may disagree with Radka's Christian interpretations, this is certainly no shallow book, nor have his beliefs in any way flawed the quality of his work. There's a proverbial ton of fascinating material on comets in this book, whether your orientation is strictly scientific or strictly Christian. Hopefully though most readers are an objective and [a] thoughtful shade in between."
This book has been described by another reviewer as a tour de force of comets, and I would have to agree. Furthermore, it's encyclopaedic in content and form . . . "
Brent was probably referring to Editor Scott Shoemaker's lengthy but extremely positive review of Astronomical Revelations or 666 in his Vectors, Veils & Spectres Newspaper. Scott pointed out:
"If you've been looking for a readable yet worthwhile book about comets, you may still be looking. With the publication of this fine volume, you can stop looking and start reading.
"In some ways it's a book that could have been written 500 years ago, or 500 years from now, excepting the more recent information. It will remain a standard reference on comets for the foreseeable future. It's a tour de force of comets throughout earth's history. A solid, solid, timeless product of genuine effort."

Referring to Astronomical Revelations or 666, Joseph Polansky, the Editor of Diamond Fire Magazine, pointed out that:
"Traditionally, the Book of Revelation has been the doorway to the study of the occult sciences and for the deeper aspects of metaphysics. Deep occult and metaphysical truths are buried there. But our Author used it as a doorway to the Physical Sciences--to Astronomy and Cosmology. His interpretation is unique, original, and very educational."
