but one thing first- sun/moon/Saba/Mary/Anath link WOW

okay, two things:

well, all right, three

Ahab seems to be the grandson or great grandson of David and
Bathsheba. She's the wife of a Hittite but her name semms to
indicate she or her mom was actually from Saba. Also, Bilqis was
Sabean, so the Sabean influence would have likely been strong around
the royal harem. He marries Jezebel, who is not Sabean but has many
similar religious concepts, and possibly because of his Sabean-
influenced upbringing falls easily into polytheism.
The Sabeans worshipped/venerated Sirius, which is universally so far
as I know associated with dogs. Sirius follows Orion in the sky.
The constellation Orion in ancient times was Ba'al. Orion follows
the Pleiades in the sky. The perfect brides? Apparently one of the
symbols found often archeologically for Anath is a seven-pointed
star. I'm way too tired to draw any actual conclusions, but it all
does seem connected.
