The "Proud Angel Driven forth from Heaven" is of course according to the Christian tradition Lucifer, the fallen angel, who together with one-third of the angels rebelled against the supreme god Yahweh. They were all punished and cast out of heaven.
Dis is said to have dispatched a group of Gaels from Hades, ordering them to take possession of Ireland. Was this statement pure Roman/Christian propaganda on Caesar's behalf? Did the people of Gaul really pay their tributes to demons, or is the true history of Gaul more complex?
Caesar's comment on their astronomical knowledge was the following:
They used to meet during a full moon night, near a sacred mound or grove, and if possible during a lighting storm. A circle with elements of the Dragon was traced upon the ground. During the ritual, the priest held his wand high up in the air, while chanting a sequence of magical words loudly pronounced in each of the four directions. Incantation was a method used to summon the great Dragon from which they received their unusual powers. The power was a form of energy that moved through the Druid's body and enabled him to perform magic.
The serpent was, as in many other cultures recognized as a symbol of wisdom and strength. The Celtic Druids used to pronounce, "I am a Serpent. I am Druid." No country in Europe is more associated with the serpent than Ireland.
Who were the legendary Tuatha De Danaan?
The true origin of the Tuatha De Danaan is unknown. The name means literally "the folk of the god whose mother is Dana." These fabled Irish gods appeared one day, on 1st May (Beltane) out of nowhere.
Were they demons of the Devil - were they men?"

In the first battle, they encountered the Firbolgs (the Men of the Bags), who they defeated at Magh-Tuireadh. Legends relate how the Tuatha de Danaan cloaked themselves in a mist, which enabled them to appear and vanish out of sight as they wished. Naturally, this act completely confused the Firbolgs, who had major problems keeping track of their enemy. Cloaking technology was frequently used among the ancient space gods. In Voices from Legendary Times I describe how the alien gods of India for example, used invisible shields as well as holographic projections. No doubt that the Tuatha De Danaan were also acquainted with the same technology.
It is said that Mananan was also a shape-shifter. Legends describe how he could change himself into one hundred different persons.
The alien gods had a boat named Ocean-sweeper. It sailed without a sail and obeyed the thought of it sailor. The steed Aonbarr must have been a flying machine, since it could travel over land and sea.
They were skilled in hypnotism and could interpret dreams and omens. As all other gods across the world, Tuatha de Danaan could soar the skies by the aid of magical wings. They were very artistic and highly intelligent.
The saying "Wise as the Tuatha de Danaans" can still be heard sometimes in the southern parts of Ireland.
