* "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.

The Dagda = Christian God?
« on: March 14, 2017, 02:08:31 am »
http://draeconin.com/database/dagda.htm

So, I just finished reading this. I'm a bit iffy on it, mainly from a lack of knowledge on both accounts of the ancient Celts and the conversion to Christianity. I'm curious what the general thoughts would be here? :confused:

Not impressed. Another Irish = Celts assumption with a bit of Taliesin thrown in somewhat randomly.

Someone also needs to explain to them what a primary source actually is.

Good to know. I had a feeling it was a bit off, haha. Thank you.

It's not an assumption that the Irish are Celtic, however, these imaginary lines linking Celtic cosmology with Christianity or the 12 tribes of Isreal are getting tiresome.

IMHO, they are not the same.  The energies are very, very different.  This doesn't mean at one time, the Irish people may have assimilated some of the Dagda's qualities into the Christian god as part of the conversion process, but I'm no scholar and I don't know.
