The Saturn Myth book by David Talbott is the 1980's book that combined with a specific version of Plasma Cosmology created the modern Electric Universe theory.
This theory was one person not knocking on a door from never happening. There was no conceivable mechanism, even on the fringes of pseudoscience, that could have planet Earth in a very recent Saturn system. Mythological events that seem to be recorded around the whole world, yet. Knock, knock.
David N Talbott's solar system reconfiguration is based on Immanuel Velikovsky's mythology and chronology works including Worlds In Collision. Also an Electric plasma Universe based on Wallace Thornhill's theories (lots of others in that mix). It is also a Plasma based Cosmology but not Anthony Peratt's Plasma Universe.
The full title is The Saturn Myth: A Reinterpretation of Rites and Symbols Illuminating Some of the Dark Corners of Primordial Society. Obviously Wikipedia rates it as pseudoscience but does provide a great brief on the authors main ideas.
The book examines similar tales in comparative mythology and states that thousands of years ago, Earth was a former satellite of Saturn, and that a vastly different solar system alignment existed. This proto-Saturn, devoid of its current rings, was much closer to the sun.
According to the author, a major cataclysm disfigured the previous planetary configuration and unleashed major chaos on a formerly advanced human civilization.
This astronomical catastrophe ended a previous Golden Age in which humans, previously living in an advanced civilization, witnessed drastic changes in their sky.
Survivors of this cataclysm later retold this story to their descendants in the form of religious archetypes, which represents planetary bodies.

If you are into the EU theory then this is another essential read because this is what EUT is founded on.
Read David Talbott's The Saturn Myth (for free)
Dave Talbott's book is now rare and so any used copy is very expensive. There are free ebook download versions available (PDF, Epub, Kindle). Normally you are encouraged to buy the printed book to encourage and reward the author but as it is virtually impossible to find or afford for the average man who is interested in Thunderbolts Project cosmologies you might have to get an electronic version.
Be careful if you do decide to purchase the paper book off Amazon as there seems to be a number of people selling printouts of the free PDF and charging $100's for them!
Reviews of Dave Talbott's book and theories
Immanuel Velikovsky read it then wrote a letter to Talbott.
Amazon readers reviews:
This is not a quick read nor particularly well-written but it is a well-documented and an immensely powerful argument for the early gods of pre-history being cosmic entities that were in fact the planets. The world mountain, the cosmic tree and other mythological aspects are explained in scientific terms. Is Talbott correct? I am fairly sure he's on to something important. I know I can never view traditional astronomy or even the present concept of religion in the same light after spending time with this book. Too bad it's out of print but my library got me a copy.
Origins of religion convincingly explained
It has proved interesting but very hard reading. There is a lot of interesting research on the various Myths around the World concerning the ancient Gods and ancient events. For this research I give the book 3 stars. The author however should learn that repeated assertion does not make a good argument! The main problem is the identification of Saturn with almost everything!
Saturn = EVERYTHING!
