Book Review: Moon-o-theism, Chapter 2

Now this is more like it. He carefully demonstrates that, in contrast to the Mediterranean, where the sun gods were male and the moon gods were female, in Arabia the sun gods were female and the moon gods were male.

He then moves from the general to the specific, parsing words and symbols, such as the horns of a bull being a symbolic moon crescent, to demonstrate that Sin was indeed a moon god.

I hope the rest of the book continues in this vein.
