Correct. But I wasn't asking about my opinion, I already know what my opinon is, I wanted to know yours.
You already know my opinion. It is posted above.
Homer and Swift observed the moons of Mars with a telescope.
"So he [Mars] spoke, and ordered Deimos and Phobos to harness." -- Homeros, poet, Iliad, XV:119, 8th century B.C.
Similarly the moons of Saturn.
"This is the way it is fated to be; and for you and your anger
I [Jupiter] care not; not if you stray apart to the undermost limits
of earth and sea, where Iapetos and Kronos [Saturn] seated
have no shining of the sun god Hyperion to delight them
nor winds delight, but Tartaros [outerspace] stands deeply about them
-- Homeros, poet, Iliad, VIII:477-481, 8th century B.C.
"There is said to be distinct evidence that they [Babylonians] observed the four satellites of Jupiter, and strong reason to believe that they were acquainted likewise with the seven satellites of Saturn
. ... strange as it may seem to us ... the Babylonians possessed optical instruments of the nature of telescopes, since it is impossible, even in the clear and vapor-less sky of Chaldaea, to discern the faint moons of that distant planet [Saturn] without lenses. A lens, it must be remembered, with a fair magnifying power, has been discovered amongst the Mesopotamian ruins." -- George Rawlinson, historian, The Seven Great Monarchies of the Eastern World
, Volume 4: Babylon, 1862-67
Yes, Deimos and Phobos, the moons of Mars are real. Deimos and Phobos, the two fictional (non moon) figures from mythology are not.
There is no difference between them.
Deimos = Deimos
Phobos = Phobos
Neither are the the two fictional moons with completely different characteristics to Phobos and Deimos from Gulliver's Travels.
This contradicts your earlier statement that Deimos and Phobos, the moons of Mars, are real.
I notice you still haven't responded to my questions about Pluto and Uranus, so I'll ask them again:
When Pluto was discovered and named in 1930, do you think astronomers believed they had discovered the God of the Underworld in outer space?
Pluto wasn't discovered or named in 1930. Pluto is the Roman name for the Greek planet Hades.
"Hades [Pluto] trembled where he rules over the dead below, and the Titans under Tartarus who live with Cronos [Saturn] ...." -- Hesiod, poet, Theogony, 8th century B.C.
How would Gaia (the earth), become impregnated by Uranus, and then give birth to Cronus (Saturn), especially as Saturn is 95 times the mass of the earth?
Are you referring to Hesiod?
