Ancient Civilization - Tuatha de Danann
After the Annunaki arrived on Earth, their slaves the Egiki - their slaves revolted. The Annunaki wiped them out as a species here on earth and started to create a species they could use as slaves.
After creating many creatures they created the perfect being to be their slaves - Humans. This is where our legendary creatures come from.
The Annunaki spread through our Earth, creating their own colonies looking for gold. The gold was for their home planet to help with climate change. This is why ‘Eden’ or heavenly gardens are a part of every culture. There is also pictographs around the world of ‘spacemen’ and their ‘spaceships’.
In each area of settlement we will find a pantheon of ‘gods, goddesses and their creatures’. If we look closely at the pantheons we see these creator gods and goddesses are very much human like, human emotions, tyrannical, helpful, compassionate etc.
Tuatha De Danann
- Folk of the Goddess Danu - also known as Truth De - Tribe of the Gods
The folklore for the Tuarth De Danann has been Christianized as these tribes passed their history through storytelling. There are no primary sources for the Tuatha de Danann. The stories were told to Christian Priests, it took me a couple of weeks to clarify some of the stories, because there are many varieties. I have left references below for you to check out and enjoy.
The Christian Priests made up stories of the Tuatha De Danann being Angels who fell, Angels who wanted to remain neutral and help humans, demons.
The story of the arrival of the Tuatha de Danann is always by ships, they come out of the mist, the ships fly from the north to Ireland. The Tuatha De Danann take the ships apart and announce they have arrived and wish to help the people of Ireland.
The Irish describe these beings as shiny, supernatural beings who could shapeshift, use elemental magic and weather control, knowledgable, could also die, not easily, immortal.
