Sorry its taken this long to get back to you on this, I just needed to let the energy clear a bit. I don't want to repeat here the same things as in the other thread.
This is my opinion you could call it a theory I guess. I came into this "theory" about 7 years ago while I was meditating on it (this process of meditation lasted for weeks being carried out on a daily basis).
Note: the fallowing dates given are approximations and not meant to be taken literally.
About 200,000-300,000 years ago or so the Neanderthal man was in full force, they hadn't yet met the Homo sapiens and where beginning to learn how to use their minds to control the elements. When Homo sapiens arrived about 50,000 years ago the two came together; subsequently the Neanderthal man disappeared but his genes where mixed with his conquerors and also a portion of his knowledge. I would suspect this may have taken about 5-10,000 years. To make a long story short the white European races came from this mixing, gaining also some the Neanderthal's knowledge of nature and how things work; this knowledge would have been tens of thousands of years old if not hundreds of thousand's, making it very significant. Neanderthal man -- according to science -- had a larger brain making them at the very least as intelligent as ourselves. This knowledge would have persisted until the druids demise around 500 AD. This is why no other group of people on the planet had or has had knowledge or ability like the druids as far as I'm aware. Having had this knowledge handed down generationally the Druids held tremendous insight into the workings of nature and the human psyche, allowing them to achieve amazing feats. Imagine, tens of thousands of years of accumulated knowledge being handed down to people like you and I. This is what I feel was taken from us during the conquest of the Christian army's coming from the Vatican's Rome. (I don't mean to offend anyone by stating this fact, please take it as being only a fact of history. In order to minimize offences I will refrain form pointing out the gore in which this was accomplished.)
This awareness of mine has come from a mix of paranormal experiences (talking to spirits), past life regressions (as being a Druid) as well as little snippets taken from places like Edward Gibbons "The Decline and Fall of The Roman Empire" what the Romans kept record of and natural instinct.
Well that's it in a nut-shell...
May you live in your hearts always.
