The Great Avebury Challenge - The Proof is in the Pudding - We Can Now Predict the Stars Marked on the Left, Right and Back Sides of Avebury Stone #10

And now we come to the really fun part of the entire decipherment process, because we begin to use a major test of the scientific method -- the test of prediction.

Our decipherment of the front side of Avebury Stone #10, standing by itself, has little probative value for it can not be used to prove itself....

However,
if our decipherment of the front side of Avebury Stone #10 is correct, and if the system we outlined in the initial Avebury Challenge correctly explains the manner in which the ancients carved and marked and placed the stones at Avebury Henge and Circle,
then the left and right sides of Avebury Stone #10, of which we previously published our photographs, MUST by shapes, lines and carvings, mark the stars viz. star regions to the left and right of the stars shown in our previous posting, while the back side of Avebury Stone #10 must mark the stars opposite those identified on the front side of that stone.

As luck would would have it, the relatively narrow left side of Avebury Stone #10 is on the whole so clear in its shapes, lines and markings that even persons in the archaeological professions who have no knowledge of astronomy as also persons in the astronomical profession who have no knowledge of archaeology should be able to see that our prediction is correct.
  • The left side of Avebury Stone #10 marks star regions as predicted.
  • The right side of Avebury Stone #10 marks star regions as predicted.
  • The back side of Avebury Stone #10 marks star regions as predicted.
    and, indeed,
  • The neighboring stones show stars to the left and right of those identified on the front side of Avebury Stone #10, as one would expect.
We show this in the subsequent postings.
