How do you think they're stretching it? I think they're just explaining how
the archeoastronomers saw it. I suppose without peripheral lighting, the
night sky must've been an awesome sight to behold on a nightly basis.
I also just realized that in the wintertime, the constellation of
Orion rises in the east after sunset, so there is no way its stars can
be visibly pointing at the rising sun at sunrise.
There are a couple of cool online planetarium sites, try it. Orion is
not in the sky at all at sunrise even in Bethlehem on December 25th in
the year 0000. Where did he get this stuff?
The Zeitgeist filmmaker's credibility is now at zero. Time do do other
stuff, I have wasted too much time on this crap!
