THE passage in which Cæsar sums up the Gaulish pantheon runs: “They worship chiefly the god Mercury; of him there are many symbols, and they regard him as the inventor of all the arts, as the guide of travellers, and as possessing great influence over bargains and commerce. After him they worship Apollo and Mars, Juppiter and Minerva. About these they hold much the same beliefs as other nations. Apollo heals diseases, Minerva teaches the elements of industry and the arts, Juppiter rules over the heavens, Mars directs war. All the Gauls assert that they are descended from Dispater, their progenitor.” As will be seen, the Gauls had many other gods than these, while the Roman gods, by whose names Cæsar calls the Celtic divinities. As the Greeks called by the names of their own gods those of Egypt, Persia, and Babylonia, so the Romans identified Greek, Teutonic, and Celtic gods with theirs. The identification was seldom complete, and often extended only to one particular function or attribute. But, as in Gaul, it was often part of a state policy, and there the fusion of cults was intended to break the power of the Druids.

  1. For the truth shall be spoken; since of old these evil demons, effecting apparitions of themselves, both defiled women and corrupted boys, and showed such fearful sights to men, that those who did not use their reason in judging of the actions that were done, were struck with terror; and being carried away by fear, and not knowing that these were demons, they called them gods, and gave to each the name which each of the demons chose for himself. And when Socrates endeavoured, by true reason and examination, to bring these things to light, and deliver men from the demons, then the demons themselves, by means of men who rejoiced in iniquity, compassed his death, as an atheist and a profane person, on the charge that "he was introducing new divinities;" and in our case they display a similar activity. For not only among the Greeks did reason (Logos) prevail to condemn these things through Socrates, but also among the Barbarians were they condemned by Reason (or the Word, the Logos) Himself, who took shape, and became man, and was called Jesus Christ; and in obedience to Him, we not only deny that they who did such things as these are gods, but assert that they are wicked and impious demons, whose actions will not bear comparison with those even of men desirous of virtue. – 1st Apology of Justin the Martyr

  2. Swine or common modern hog has human DNA in it and is vastly and commonly used for research in modern medicine and pharma due to the fact that it's tissues are not rejected by the human body. , this was known long ago and to eat pig is nothing less than cannibalism

  3. Jesus was Galatian. Tyre Lebanon, Lost city of Troy, Eutraria (Etruscans), Tyreheann sea in Italy, Turin Italy, Hill of Tara in Ireland and other ancient places have their root in the God Taranis or (Tuirean). Maybe it has to do with the bull (Taurus) or how the sacred cow had so much to do with Indo-European expansion. The hindus claim the cow is sacred because of its help in ancient times. In Catahoula and other stone age sights they always have the bull and cow at the temples and houses.
