In true pagan upside-down & back-to-front tradition as I understand it they named their "gods" after the planets, probably while hallucinating on Artemesia absinthium
which is a very good insecticide.
How like the moth, the pagan. Bedazzled in moonlight, unable to distinguish brutal flame from icy star these oversexed zombies fly 'round and round, Zeus this, Jupiter that, Venus the other and the next thing their empire has collapsed and A. absinthium
has "evolved" into Dionaea muscipula
replete with moist and sticky I have forgotten what I was going to say, but whatever it was they can't get out, such is the lure of Venus. God told us (but not them, obviously) not to worship the planets, not to steal their names for "gods" or "shrines" or "temples" and sure enough Satan whispered his nothings (to Democritus for example) knowing what God was doing so that the wretched axial[sic]
period would have a tub load of pre-incarnation mumbojumbo to display, a mockery of God's Plan—especially as He was intending to reveal it through Paul—and all to ruin it came!
ACTS 19:18-21 And many that believed came, and confessed, and shewed their deeds. Many of them also which used curious arts brought their books together, and burned them before all men: and they counted the price of them, and found it fifty thousand pieces of silver. So mightily grew the word of God and prevailed. After these things were ended, Paul purposed in the spirit, when he had passed through Macedonia and Achaia, to go to Jerusalem, saying, After I have been there, I must also see Rome. KJV
You can read the whole passage here
and notice the location in verse 1. God was pouring out His Spirit, miracles were flowing, demons fleeing, healing manifest, baptisms multiplying. What place had superstition here? as was practised in the Greek schools: teachings such as those of Democritus
these curious arts were brought ot and BURNED Hallelujah!
that's how powerful our God, the only True God really is and all those imposters, stealing what temporary glory they could from the planets, enticed like moths their minions to the flame and they were burned all up.
The stage was set for Jesus to establish His Church and the tide of darkness was turned back.
