Present day Pagans, may celebrate, Earth Mother Day, on June 5th, honoring, Gaia/Tailtiu, otherwise known as Mother Earth.
On this day, Ancient Ireland made all things sacred to their Goddess named, Domna was patron of sacred stones, also known as, cairns. The center of all her worship was said to take place in Ballybourney. The day would have been kicked off with a ritualistic walk around her sacred grounds.
Now, who has heard of , Mythical Atlantis? Theories are countless concerning this could-have-existed place, as are the locations it could have existed in. Theories are not only stapled to how Atlantis found it’s end, but how it may once again rise.
Let it all be solved now because…
According to those of Classical Greece, Atlantis DID exist, and today marks the moment when Zeus got ticked off and sunk it. According to them, the year was 8498 BDE.
In all actuality, Zeus is not the only god who was credited with sinking Atlantis. Many cultures gave their Gods credit. In fact, many cultures claimed to be descendants of the long, lost place…such as those in Scotland, Ireland and Rome. Even the Norse claimed to be descendants.
The Mayans told of a people who may have been from Atlantis…
A Mayan myth tells of perfect people, made out of cornmeal, who became too proud. The gods put a mist before their eyes to weaken their understanding .Source
Personally, I find it curious that Zeus was said to have destroyed Atlantis – completely sinking it. If we pop on over to biblical writings, was this linked to Noah and the flood? Wasn’t it said that the biblical god became angry with how things were going down here so he destroyed the land and flooded everything?
Could the truth to this civilization live in the bits and pieces of every ancient culture hidden within our books of myth?
