* "Unable to verify referring url. Please go back and try again" Problem Logging In?

If you get an "Unable to verify referring url. Please go back and try again" error when you try to log in, you need to be sure you are accessing the board with a url that starts with "https://ecauldron.com".  If it starts with https://www.ecauldron.com" (or "http://www.ecauldron.com") you will get this error because "www.ecauldron.com" is not technically the same website as "ecauldron.com". Moving to the more secure "https" means it is more picky about such things.

Brythonic UPG: Taranis and Matrona - What do YOU think?
« on: August 11, 2013, 12:42:49 am »
As my praxes develop, and I research further, the Brythonic gods, as I believe learning never stops, I have long since learned about Maponos, of whom, as I refer to him by his Welsh name, Mabon, I know of his mother, Matrona, once again, for clarification purposes, I call her Modron.

What, however of Mabon's father? After all, does it not take two? I have read that his father is a god named Mellt. Which, is a Welsh word for lightning. Taranis (Taran), is a god of thunder, among many other things. I wonder, as not much is known of Mellt, if, perhaps this is another name for Taranis. As thunder and lightning certainly go hand in hand.

If this is so, this makes a quite fitting trinity, in a sense. A sky father, an earth mother, and the Divine Son. I'm convinced. However, this being a Celtic based special interest group, I think it an excellent place for feedback. So, what think you, fellow Celtic path followers (or anyone else, for that matter)?

I don't see any inherent problems with it.

Tee hee! I had given up on anyone replying to this thread. :) I consider UPG important, I'm all for history, and I do have my own set boundaries, but, we are also individuals, and will look at beliefs in different ways. I'm always open to scrutiny, of course, as anyone should expect that to be a possibility when they put their beliefs out in the open.

I figured I might put mine out there in this case, because someone had introduced the idea to me, and it has been revolutionary in my practice. Thank you for your input. :)

So long as your UPG mythology is internally consistent and coherent it should work out fine.
