“Our Father who art in Heaven...”
So goes the traditional Lord’s Prayer in Christianity and I believe that it has its origins in a time when the sun (Sol) was considered to be the supreme being in our world.

Sol can literally be seen in the heavens as he marches across the sky, is reborn every morning and creates the day which makes our lives possible.

When we die we are purposely laid to rest facing the east and Sol’s re-emergence, in order for us to be reborn into the afterlife.

I have come across plenty of anecdotal evidence that Sol was universally worshipped by peoples all over the world in ancient times, especially here on Turtle Island where the Sundance was a very important event connecting native peoples to a mighty power.

For example, the indigenous name of the Medicine River in my area was “Sundance River”, changed by the colonial authorities.

Question: Why was Sol considered to be so powerful? I mean, he is there every morning, seemingly unchanged.

Answer: That has not always been the case and there is now evidence emerging that massive solar flares may have been a root cause of the end of the last ice age some 12,800 years ago which destroyed an ancient civilization, leaving small remnants in isolated places.

We have now come full circle with a sophisticated but very vulnerable civilization.

“...hallowed be thy name; thy kingdom come; thy will be done; on earth as it is in heaven.”
