why are they all the same in principle
Throughout Human history we have been far more connected than history books would allow us to believe.. to say Africans never ventured to South
America, or Vikings to America, or Middle Easterners to China is absurd. Of course they did.
Human intellectual capacity has NEVER changed.. men born 4,000 years ago were just as intelligent, the storehouses of knowledge simply have not been
built up yet. So the rocket scientist of the Iron Age didn't simply plow the fields.. they thought up and constructed wondrous works of
architecture. The Leonardo Da Vinci's of the Iron Age didn't work as cart laborers, they thought up fantastic tales..
Throughout the Stone age, as far back as 11,000 years, we see weaponry and tools alike over vast spaces.. The reason being, "primitive" trade routes
existed, and new tools were first to be traded as they were valuable. Is it improbable to assume that men marching with their goods didn't keep
story tellers by their sides? Unlikely, in the Celtic World Bards knew no bounds, they traveled freely across the Celtic World sharing their stories.
In each of the Celtic Domains, the stories are very much alike, but very different. Each morphs to represent the culture, and perhaps the culture
adapts some of the story.
In regards to the sky, a few things are worshiped all over the world: Sky, Sun, Duality of heaven and hell(s). People who want to know how the very,
very first person to call themselves (inter clans name) came to be, it's ALWAYS some fantastic story of supernatural origins and just appearing. Be
it from the skies, or in some cultures like some Celts, from the Earth, or simply "other worlds" .. places that cannot be seen, and thus, cannot be
The spread of ideas, skills, weapons, items, they were far more advanced than we give them credit. How did they build the Pyramids? Well, how did we
build the World Trade Centers, the Golden Gate Bridge, the Panama Canal? .. Humans are very good at overcoming seemingly impossible odds, and creating
works of art that seem impossible. We don't give them credit because we believe we are intellectually superior than they, but in fact, we are
"if you ain't got nothing nice to say, don't say it"
Generally speaking, when you make a thread, you expect some people not to agree. Um, some would say that's the sign of a good thread, discussion and
debate forms around the principle ideas. If my replying but not agreeing with everything upsets you, I don't apologize. If I want to simply say
"nice job" I will send a U2U.
Though, in this case, even the OP wrote me off as having nothing to say, which I cannot hide, I was a bit surprised.

you have a lot of growing still to do
Well, my chosen area of study is history, so perhaps I should stop paying all those expensive tuition bills and simply read blogs and youtube
videos. Then I can be "Awakened" ......
