The Gaelic Destiny

Tara Hill

The Hill of Tara | Éire

Official history recounts that around the midst of the 1st millennium BC, a few Celtic or Gaelic (as they called themselves) tribes, left the British Islands to cross to another island located further to the west. In time, this island came to be known as Eire or Ireland. The Gaelic past seems rather short compared to the history of those who worked hard to ensure the ephemerality of the peoples of Europe. In the ancient language that was also spoken by Ionians, the word “gal” means: the great ones, religious song, the oldest son, strong. Nevertheless, the facts aren’t as simple as the old myths depict them. Moreover, a good deal of ancient information wasn’t confirmed so as to allow us to weave the time web where there’s nothing but oblivion and willful darkness. I’ll start with the mythological sayings left for us by those who claimed in writing that only their people were well-educated and civilized, whereas the rest of the peoples were a bunch of starvelings and “barbarians”.

To that effect, I bring as witness the Latin poet Virgil (70 BC – 10 AD) who wrote in his Aeneid (II,49) – “Timeo Danaos et Dona ferentes” meaning “I fear the Greeks, even when they bring gifts!” According to Virgil, these lines were written on the shield carried by their ancestor, the Trojan Aeneas, who was put to great trouble by these rascals, being forced to leave his homeland. In his writing, the Latin poet refers to the Greeks with the terms Danaoi or Danaans! Why is that, I wonder?

The ancient Greek writings say that Danaos was the son of king Belus and the twin brother of Aegyptus. When they reached manhood, the king gave to Danaos the lands of Libya, whereas Aegyptus received Arabia. After the death of king Belus, Aegyptus occupied the country by the Nile River, naming it after him. At the same time, in order to remain in good terms with his brother and neighbour, he suggested that a marriage take place between his 50 sons and the 50 daughters of Danaos. Suspecting an infamy, Danaos built a ship and fled from Libya to the Peloponnesian city of Argos, founded by his ancestor, Io. In Argos, Danaus claimed the kingdom against Gelanor (the laughing one), but after Danaus died, the rule of the city came back once again to its former owner, who had lost it because of an oracle. However, Gelanor was also known under the name of Pelasgus, a term which refers to the first people to colonize Peloponnesus long before the Dorians.

Pausanias (2nd century AD) wrote in his Description of Greece II, 19 that Pelasgus came to the throne of Argos upon the death of Danaos. He also ventured the opinion that Danaos forced all his people to change their name from Pelasgians to Danaoi. In his journey to Argos, the author wrote that he saw the throne of Danaos inside the temple of Apollo Lycaion. Additional information was left to us by the Greek writer Ctesias, who lived in the 5th century BC. According to him, the king of the Scythians (who is, in fact, the king of the Getae, since they also used to name Scythians, the people living to the north of Ister) defeated Pharaoh Sesostris in battle, on the pharaoh’s own lands. He afterwards retreated to his homeland. However, he might have stopped in Peloponnesus, founding a new country, since there was no one to call him to account! In his “Philippic Histories”, Pompeius Trogus wrote that Tanaus was king of the Getae and that the Pelasgians came from the north of Ister. Since no one can question the fact that Danaus might have been referred to by other (ancient) historians as Tanaus, I see no point in continuing to believe the inventions made up by others.

In the Vedic mythology of the Aryas who had departed from the Carpathian lands, Danu is a primordial goddess, mentioned in the Rigveda as the mother of the Danavas, meaning “Danu’s sons” or the Danaans. Danu was the goddess of primordial waters, precisely as it is mentioned in some of our local myths concerning the genesis of humankind. In the Rigveda (I.32.9), she is identified with Vritra’s mother (antagonist, the adversary) or the evil serpent killed by Indra. We can observe a striking resemblance to the Emesh mythology and to the Carpathian mythology about Typhon and Echidna. According to the experts, the word “Danu” means not only primordial waters, but also rain, liquid or river, since it can be found in the names of several streams like Don, Danubius and Dnieper. However, from dana we have inherited tana, meaning clouds, fog and in figurative speech: to have the head in the clouds. Hence, the name of the famous Getic king Tanaus can be interpreted as the one who came from the clouds, with reference to the misty north or the fogs surrounding the Tanais/Don River.

In Irish mythology, Danu or Dana in its modern form, was the mother goddess of the Tuatha Dé Danann, meaning those of Irish origin or the “peoples of the goddess Danu” or People Descended form the Gods, same as my Getic ancestors. The word dana means in the Emegi dialect, the distance covered by a person in one day, approximately 11 km, but also the interval of 2 hours required to cover that ground or the 12 parts of a day.

Anticlides of Athens (3rd century BC) wrote that the strongholds of Lemnos and Imbros were founded by Pelasgians and the entire Ionian coast was inhabited by these people. In other words, according to this historical source, the Ionians are Pelasgians and this is where the ancestors of the Irish departed from, after the fall of the Hittite Empire or perhaps after Troy was destroyed by the Achaeans. Thessaly, a land located in the northern part of Greece, at the Thracian border, was considered by the ancient Greeks a country of the Pelasgians! The region is still majoritarily inhabited by Aromanians at the present day.

The Greek historian Euripides (480-406 BC) wrote in his play, Archelaos, that the Danaans were one and the same with the Pelasgians. According to him, the mythical king Danaos of Greece laid down a law that “those previously called Pelasgians were to be called Danaans.” I believe that this much would suffice to shed some light on the falsified history of the Pelasgians who had departed from the north of Ister, as well as on the history of the Getae!

The historian and geographer Hecataeus of Miletus (550-470 BC) reveals in the written fragments we came upon, that before the time of the Greeks, Peloponnesus was inhabited by barbarians, same as the entire Greek peninsula. Thessaly, the most fertile territory of ancient Greece, located between the Olympus, Ossa, Pelion and Pind Mountains, was also known under the name of Pelasgia, meaning the country of the Pelasgians, as it appears in Homer’s Iliad.

The Carian Herodotus (485-425 BC) says in his writings that the fertile land of Attica was inhabited by Pelasgians in ancient times. According to him, Athens was founded by the Pelasgians and the Athenians were Pelasgians in the beginning. He remarks about their language: “What the language of the Pelasgi was, I cannot say with any certainty. If however, we may form a conjecture from the tongue spoken by the Pelasgi of the present day – those, for instance, who live at Creston above the Tyrrhenians, who formerly dwelt in the district named Thessaliotis – or those again who founded Placia and Scylace upon the Hellespont, who had previously dwelt for some time with the Athenians; if, I say, we are to form a conjecture from any of these, we must pronounce that the Pelasgi spoke a barbarous language… The Pelasgi were a barbarian race (with the meaning of foreigner, not savage, as the lying rascals skillfully used it starting with the 5th century).” The historian also writes that the Ionians, who had at first dwelt in Achaia and Peloponnesus, on the shores of Asia Minor and later in Lydia and Caria (the homeland of Herodotus) were of Pelasgian origin. The Greeks, when their minds were still clear of the fog of greatness, called the Pelasgians divine – dioi – as we can see in Homer’s Iliad, or sainted – ieroi. That was until they were concealed by Hellenistic lies, so that there is almost nothing left in history about these people which had founded civilizations to the north and to the south of Ister.

When they began to falsify our ancestral history and culture, the Greeks wrote through the Carian Herodotus that the Getae inhabited the lands to the south of Ister/Danube, as far as ‘Thrace’ and to the north of the river there was wilderness or a deserted territory, where the groups of migrants used to pass. However, the Talmud and the Midrashim, a collection of texts which plainly explain the Torah and the Talmud, written for the Mosaics only, say that Magog is Gitia and we know from other sources that Gomer is Scythia!

The Judeo-Christian prelate Hieronymus/Jerome, in his book ‘Contra Pelagianos’, provides data from his time about the mysterious names Gog and Magog, from the writings which were only “revealed” to the Hebrews: ,,El certe Gothos omnes retro eruditi magis Getas quam Gog et Magog appelare consueverunt / Sure thing, all the scholars from the past used… the name Getae for the Goths, instead of Gog and Magog.” At the end of the 4th century, it was a known fact that the Hebrews lied through their teeth and the “past scholars” said that Magog are the Getic people or Getia and Gog is their main and only god, since the Getae were the only people who followed a monotheistic religion in ancient times.

Another source, equally illustrative, is the ‘Getica’ of Jordanes. The Roman historian writes in paragraph 29 about the Judean Flavius Josephus, accusing the latter, that he forgot to include the Getae in his annals, deftly removing them from history: “He barely mentions Magog of that stock, and says that they were Scythians by race and were called so by name.” As we can clearly see, the Hebrews knew the Getae or Magog were “the people chosen by God” or the people descended from Gog/Senta/God. This assertion is also supported by the confessions of the Latin poet Ovid.

In the London Palace of Guildhall there are two giant statues of unknown origin called Gog and Magog. The statue from the left depicts a king wearing a flaming crown on his head, which resembles a nest of a phoenix with the bird sitting in it. In his right hand he carries a spear shaped as a cross towards the head – the image is similar to the one found on the Getic lead plate no. 26. The second statue depicts a man in Scythian or Getic clothing who wears a laurel or leaf wreath, as the Carpathian Arimaspi (who many European “scholars” wish to make disappeared) liked to wear.

Of the European languages, Irish is the closest language to ancient Romanian. They have 985 words in common and this is a linguistic truth which no one can deny! The 290 words that are common to Romanian, Irish and Eme-gi/Sumerian and the 205 words that are only common to Irish and Eme-gi prove without a shadow of a doubt, that they had a direct relationship with the Emesh/Sumerian or their culture.
