Hi there, guess I have not met you before. Appreciate

It seems to me that this topic has been revived...

If I knew something more about medicine, I'd contribute.
Only can put down hearsay and stuff from elsewhere.
But it is good to revive them periodically. Some
just go on ad nauseam, and others die. New life needed.

Apparently the Cancer constellation can be traced back to the Bronze Age which I do believe came before Ancient Greece?

the Iron Age began around 1100, at least in Israel, and before
that it was the Bronze Age. David entered the Iron Age, whereas
his predecessor, Saul was mostly Bronze. The Philistines brought
Iron to the neighborhood. As for ancient Greeks, I'd have to
look that up

Not so. Bronze Age Greece would include the Mycenaeans, whose language is extant (written on clay tablets in Linear B). Most of Homer's tales take place during the Bronze Age.

here's a thing:

“I believe in fate, in chance meetings, and in good fortune. I also believe in the Trinity, salvation by grace, infralapsarianism, non-Darwinian evolution, and possibly unicorns, as they are mentioned nine times in the Old Testament. I wasn’t too sure about the unicorns yet.”
-Mark Schweizer, The Mezzo Wore Mink (A Liturgical Mystery)

which of these words do you suppose I'd consider as a wwftd candidate?
