You can read it."


Aren't you the kind of guy who shoots an arrow into a tree and then paints a bullseye around it? People have assigned different dates to that Venus Tablet--about a century in variance. You still haven't explained why the eruption of the Thera volcano could be termed a "celestial event". In fact, you seldom bother to explain anything. It's always just "look at my dates". But you didn't inscribe the Venus Tablet--so that's useless. Whatever your thinking is--and nobody here can know if you don't explain--you can be assured of one thing. No one in Babylon would have been able to see the explosion of Thera. But they would have seen the aftermath, the ash blown eastward by the westerly winds of fall in the Aegean. They may have noticed some strange weather, too. Yes, an explosion, the equivalent of several atomic bombs, can disturb the atmosphere. Year 18 on the Venus Tablet refers to a winter month in the Babylonian calendar. Clear skies for a viewing of Venus My guess is "yes".
