Geneticists from Trinity College Dublin and archaeologists from Queen’s University Belfast have sequenced the genomes of four ancient citizens of Ireland. Revealed is a massive migration from the east, from the Pontic Steppe.
Another migration to Ireland from the east occurred not long after Jesus was crucified. Coptic Christians in Egypt, persecuted by Rome, fled westward to the Atlantic coast of Africa. From there they sailed to Ireland and introduced Christianity there long before the time of St. Patrick. Further sailings by Irish monks brought them to an island off the west coast of Scotland. In Scotland is Jacob’s Pillow Stone, also called the Stone of Scone. Was it brought there by descendants of the migrating Coptic Christians?
Jacob lay down and dreamed, as we find in Genesis chapter 28. In Genesis 28: 12 it is written: “And he dreamed that there was a ladder set up on the earth, and the top of it reached to heaven; and behold, the angels of God were ascending and descending on it!” Afterwards, when Jacob awoke, he exclaimed, “How terrible is this place!” (“Quam terribilis est locus iste!”) That Latin expression – Quam terribilis est locus iste – is also found at an unusual church in France, at Rennes-le-Château.
Mass migrations hinted at by the geneticists from Trinity College Dublin and archaeologists from Queen’s University Belfast are only the tip of the iceberg. Beneath the surface exist linguistic indications of a former connection between England, Wales, and Ireland. And folklore, sometimes called “Fairy Tales”, spreads the net even wider to perceived connections between such narratives as Jack and the Beanstalk, Jacob’s Ladder, and David and Goliath.
I am indebted to Harold Bayley’s book, The Lost Language of Symbolism, for his insights into hidden truth in so-called “Fairy Tales”, something I neglected to mention in my latest 11-minute Popcorn News video, “Irish Save Civilization”, published to YouTube on January 1, 2016. Here is a link to that video:
Here an explanation is in order: I have parted ways with Microsoft and its operating system. I won’t go into the details at this time. The bottom line is I am now using my preferred operating system, Linux. I have used Linux on my other computers for 15 years now, so I am not a novice. Nonetheless, a new operating system means different software and so a new video editor which I am getting acquainted with. It also means different WordPress software, so my blog entry may appear different. I am not sure yet how to embed the link to my video and so I have merely included its URL address. I have no idea if that will appear as such, or if the video will embed itself. Is it just the URL address, or is it an embed? Hopefully you can see above which it is.
