Proofs and Observations by Eric (TubalCain)
Sacae and Saxons
The English and possibly German Saxons near Hannover [once a British possession] were connected to Denmark in Ancient times. They are often connected to the Sacae of ancient North western Iran and Armenia. The ancient historian Chaerilus of Iasos in Caria who accompanied Alexander the Great said of them "sheep-herding Sacae, Scythian by descent,but living in wheat-bearing Asia. They were colonists of the nomads, a law-abiding people" The Cambridge Ancient History Vol. 4 John Boardman Persika,fragm 3. See also "The Origin of the Indo-Iranians" by Elena Efimovna Kuz'mina.
Plutarch believed that the Cimbri of Denmark were a mix of Galatae with Scythians. He called them Gallo-Scythians.They originated near the Maeotic Lake [Sea of Azov] in the east[where the Cimmerians,Scythians and Milesians were]. The Maeotes [Maeotic Marshes] are mentioned in the travels of the Milesians,so there were Gaels/Gauls living in the east who followed the Scythians west.Appian explicitly called the Cimbri "Celtic". Diodorus Siculus "Diodorus of Sicily" said the Cimbri were the Cimmerians. Diodorus said the Cimbri or Kymri were Galli.The Leabhar Gabala Erin mention the Gaethlaighe Meotacda -a reference to the Maeotian swamps near the Cimmerians;the Gaels lived here. They also claim descent from Gomer.The Kertch was called the Cimmerian Strait. Aeschylus also linked Maeotis with the Cimmerians in "Prometheus Bound". The Gaels called the Black Sea the "Cimmerian Sea". The Gaels split into two factions in the Leabhar Gabala. I believe that RAS. MacAlister said that Reffloir the Gael had a Scandinavian name-possibly this is due to the -ir or -r ending,but not certain. Reffloir stayed behind in Armenia where his followers may later have joined up with the Cimmerians,but some of the Gaels claimed descent from Gomer.
Jura Mountains in Germany
The Celts were in some parts of Germany in very ancient times,before they were pushed out to the west. The Jura Mountains in Germany apparently were named from the Celtic word "Jor" which means woods or a forest. I believe that the word "yaar" means a forest in Hebrew-> mem -iod-resh-ayin-iod-> iarim,plural of iar or "JAR" or yar.

Fulfillment of Prophecy is not to be Taken for Granted as Bound to have happened as it did!
It should be remembered that the "Nation and a Company of Nations" (Genesis 35:11) wasn't a priori "obvious" millenia ago. The American Revolution of 1776 may not have happened in an alternative history - then it would have been only a company of nations. Likewise, if the Union had not beat the Confederacy in the US Civil War, the US would have split into "two nations" of possibly compromised status-not a single "Great" Nation. What is it that makes the US so powerful in the first place? Not long ago, Australia held a referendum to become a republic[I believe], but it never happened. In 1995, Quebec had a referendum on whether it should become independent, but it did not go through [BY LESS THAN 1%]. If it had gone through Canada would have been fractured. Why has the British Commonwealth cohered together for so many centuries and not fractured? The Dutch discovered Australia and New Zealand and New Amsterdam [New York City], but were all taken by the British- why did this happen-history could have gone the other way as well? The formation of Israel was initiated with the Balfour Declaration of 1917 and the British victories over the Ottoman Turks, the time of General Allenby and Colonel T.C. Lawrence "Lawrence of Arabia" - an alternative history could have ended up much differently. It is no means a priori obvious that prophecies recorded thousands of years ago would have been fulfilled. There are a vast number of these coincidences.
Easter Hot Cross Buns and Israelite Pagans
Hosea 3:1 mentions raisin cakes of the pagans. These call to mind the Easter hot cross buns often made with currants or raisins and served at Easter.The old Anglo-Saxon calendar called April "Eosturmonath" or Easter Month. Easter was an old Germanic Fertility goddess associated with springtime;none other than "Astarte", the Queen of Heaven-a fertility goddess of the near East.
Chariot of the Sun
The Danish Trundholm solar chariot and mythological solar horse motifs compare with 2-Kings 23:11 horses dedicated to the sun and "chariots of the sun"
2-Kings (KJB) 23:
11 And he took away the horses that the kings of Judah had given to the sun, at the entering in of the house of the LORD, by the chamber of Nathanmelech the chamberlain, which was in the suburbs, and burned the chariots of the sun with fire.
