Nennius and the Table of European Nations

Ancient Patriarchs Introduction:
According to the Encyclopædia Britannica, Nennius,

“.. was a Welsh antiquary who between 796 and about 830 compiled or revised the Historia Brittonum, a miscellaneous collection of historical and topographical information including a description of the inhabitants and invaders of Britain and providing the earliest-known reference to the British king Arthur. In the preface to the Historia he describes himself as a disciple of Elvodugus (d. 809), chief bishop in Gwynedd. The Historia Brittonum has survived in about 35 manuscripts, dating from the early 10th to the 13th century. Besides the preface, it contains an account of the six ages of the world, a description of the inhabitants and invaders of Britain, a section on St. Patrick, a list of 12 victories ascribed to Arthur, some Anglian genealogies, and accounts of 28 cities and of various “marvels” in Britain. The fullest manuscript (British Museum Manuscript Harleian 3859) also contains two later interpolations. The controversy as to whether Nennius himself composed the Historia Brittonum or merely adapted and edited an earlier version is still unresolved.”

Pagan Gods Were Mortal Men

group-of-godsFrom Noah to Hercules by Brian Forbes  • May 21, 2015 • 0 Comments • 110 views • Summary:

There is a unanimous ancient perspective that directly contradicts the theory of evolution. It is being ignored by scholars in the modern day. Many pagan gods were mortal men. They were born, waged war, conferred advantages, had children, and died, whereupon they were deified by their descendants.

The theory of evolution is easily refuted by many powerful arguments and proofs. The watchmaker argument is perhaps the oldest and most famous. The Mt. St. Helen’s evidence, as a template for stratification and the carving of canyons, can be boiled down to a few sentences and photographs.

The kings of many European tribes can trace their genealogies back to Noah.[1] Another evidence that is of this caliber, which has yet to be given its proper place in the origins debate, is that of the common ancestry of all men through the “gods” of pagan (especially Greek and Roman) mythology.

At first glance this concept, that many to most pagan gods were mortal men, seems highly speculative – a conspiracy theory on a government protest website. It is not wild speculation. On the contrary, this was a position taken by nearly all historians of antiquity. The most skeptical, naturalistic authors were not ambiguous on this point, and there was very little deviation. This is my opinion, but you don’t have to accept it because of me.

The opinion of an un-credentialed spectator means little in this scholarly, pompous world. That is why I aim to bring you the opinion of these ancient authors in their own words. The experts of antiquity will show that Darwinism does not match the traditions of Paganism, Judaism, or any other ancient perspective on the origin of mankind.

From Noah to Hercules – What History Says about Early Man

The World as We Know It

A Description of Early Man

It is a known fact that the earth is 4.5 billion years old.  We’re not allowed to question it anymore.  Everyone who knows their science knows with certainty that the earth is 4.5 billion years old. In fact, they say it so often that people have stopped using “billions of years” and started abbreviating it as byr. A billion years is a long time.

Can you believe that of the 4.5 byrs of Earth’s history, man has only been man for 200,000 years? It’s true. Don’t scorn! Scientists, as I write this, are all (nearly) unanimous that man has been around since 200,000 years ago. It’s verifiable, experimental, solid, unchanging science! Before about four thousand years ago, our ancestors had trouble being modern. People nearly as smart as you, living nearly as long as you, didn’t build the structures we do. They didn’t know how to plant crops. They didn’t travel beyond a few miles from home. They even had a hard time creating watercraft sufficient to carry them beyond the sight of land. You may not realize this, but once I say it, you will. Two hundred thousand years is not only a long time, it’s a very, very long time.

If you are reading this, you more than likely are of childbearing age. A human generation can be as short as 10 years, but if we are being generous, we would double it. Humans have been around, doing their thing, populating the earth, and figuring out what makes us alive for literally 10,000 generations. That means, just in the human line, you have ten thousand mothers and ten thousand fathers. Continue reading From Noah to Hercules – What History Says about Early Man

The discovery of an amazing ship-shape anomaly & its cover-up! Is it Noah’s Ark?

A remarkable anomaly was discovered on this Earth. A strange, man-made-like ship-shape with a sharp bow and rounded stern, plus other archaeological artifacts obviously related to it, are all situated at the very same geographic spot, with related ancient place names, but to top it all off, there exists related documentation in hundreds of historical annals, ancient legends, local lore, even evidenced on ancient cuneiform tablets.

Fascinating? durupinar-anomalyYou choose the word! More than fascinating! We find no words to describe this amazing discovery, which strangely enough is fully and studiously ignored by–who else but–the global mainstream media.

Well, most of us bloggers are hardly surprised by that, as millions have now turned to the blogs for news and true info. A Gallup poll showed how 57 % of Americans have “little or no trust anymore in the mainstream media”, an attitude that seems to be reflected worldwide.

An additional, comical poll-result was, that the most gullible sections among the US public who still trust the media, appear to be “the youth and liberals“, or “leftists” as we call them in the rest of the world. Of course we can forgive young people for being rather ignorant, as they just didn’t have the time yet, nor experience to form a well-balanced and historically just viewpoint, being raised on Micky Mouse, Sponge Bob, Simpsons, Disney, CNN, Fox, Yahoo, and Wikipedia! Ha! But the poor leftists? Ay, ay, ay! But lets not digress…  Back to the amazing anomaly! Continue reading The discovery of an amazing ship-shape anomaly & its cover-up! Is it Noah’s Ark?

Ancient Evidence for Jesus from Non-Christian Sources

Written by Michael Gleghorn

Evidence from Tacitus

tacitus-1Although there is overwhelming evidence that the New Testament is an accurate and trustworthy historical document, many people are still reluctant to believe what it says unless there is also some independent, non-biblical testimony that corroborates its statements.

In the introduction to one of his books, F.F. Bruce tells about a Christian correspondent who was told by an agnostic friend that “apart from obscure references in Josephus and the like,” there was no historical evidence for the life of Jesus outside the Bible.{1} This, he wrote to Bruce, had caused him “great concern and some little upset in [his] spiritual life.”{2} He concludes his letter by asking, “Is such collateral proof available, and if not, are there reasons for the lack of it?“{3}
The answer to this question is, “Yes, such collateral proof is available,” and we will be looking at some of it in this article. Continue reading Ancient Evidence for Jesus from Non-Christian Sources
