Tuatha Dé Danann
February 13, 2013 in Uncategorized
Was looking up on the Tuatha Dé Danann and it’s interesting that so many of the ‘opinions’ are so akin to the Roman Empire’s denigration of the people of Carthage.
Any inkling in texts to the Tribe of Dan and you find clever, conniving creeps who call them anything from worshipers of Baal to Danu.
The translation of Tuatha Dé Danann as “peoples of the goddess Danu” is necessarily imprecise. Old Irish tuath (plural tuatha) means “people, tribe, nation”; and dé is the genitive case of día, “god, goddess, supernatural being, object of worship” (they are often referred to simply as the Tuatha Dé, a phrase also used to refer to the Israelites in early Irish Christian texts).
A poem in the Lebor Gabála Érenn says of their arrival:
It is God who suffered them, though He restrained them
they landed with horror, with lofty deed,
in their cloud of mighty combat of spectres,
upon a mountain of Conmaicne of Connacht.
Without distinction to descerning Ireland,
Without ships, a ruthless course
the truth was not known beneath the sky of stars,
whether they were of heaven or of earth.

When the Tuatha Dé Danann left Ireland, they were brought to the “promised land” far to the west, across the sea.
Tír na nÓg, Old Irish: Tír inna n-Óc “Land of the Young”) is widely known as an Otherworlds in Irish mythology and in the story of Oisín. Oisín was one of the few mortals who lived in the land of Tír na nÓg and was said to have been brought there by Niamh of the Golden Hair (Niamh Chinn Óir). It was where the Tuatha Dé Danann settled when they left Ireland’s surface, and was visited by some of Ireland’s greatest heroes.
Tír na nÓg was considered a place beyond the edges of the map, located on an island far to the west. It could be reached by either an arduous voyage or an invitation from one of its fairy residents.
Contrary to popular assumption, Tír na nÓg was not an afterlife for deceased heroes, but instead, a type of earthly paradise populated by supernatural beings, which a few sailors and adventurers were fortunate enough to happen upon during their journeys. This otherworld was a place where sickness and death did not exist. It was a place of eternal youth and beauty.
Here, music, strength, life, and all pleasurable pursuits came together in a single place. Here happiness lasted forever; no one wanted for food or drink. It is roughly similar to the Greek Elysium, or the Valhalla of the Norse, though with notable, distinct and important differences.

On a side note –the article coming out with a theory of the universe being a Pac-Man computer programme. lmao. You Luciferians really are getting spooked by God showing His power. A bunch of decrepit wraiths is what you are. I have a better theory: You are all figments of my imagination. All the old legends and myths echo my thoughts anyway. Poor Echo, and I aint Narcissus. God exists and the Universe is more than Pac-Man. God ! The conceit !
