1. Ark of the Covenant and Tara
Claims that the Ark of the Covenant is buried at Tara (Teamuir) in Ireland.

<<Did the Ancient Greeks and Native Americans Swap Starcharts?
Author Ker Than
I had a story on yesterday about a very cool discovery: a one-thousand year old petroglyph, or rock carving, that was found in Arizona and which might depict the supernova of 1006, or SN 1006. The carving is presumed to have been made an ancient group of Native Americans called the Hohokam.

<<The researcher who made the discovery argues that symbols of a scorpion and stars on the petroglyph match the relative positions of SN 1006 to the constellation Scorpius when the star first exploded.

<<It is not uncommon to find similarities in constellations between Old World and New World peoples. A clay pot found in Georgia belonging to the Weeden Island culture that existed from 300AD-700AD clearly shows a map of the heavens including an unmistakable representation of the Orion constellation depicted as a man just as the Greeks depicted it. This culture also built large earthen pyramids which they covered with white clay

Columbian contact in that according to Daniel B. Adams (Science Dec.
1983 p 32) barley was found to have existed at the site circa 300 BC-
1450 AD, in contradiction to a previous claim by the Smithsonian
that barley did not exist in ancient America at all. (1982).

4. History of County Cavan  (Ireland bordering Ulster)

The Cavan area has been inhabited for over 5,000 years. There are many survivals of these early Cavan people throughout the county. The West Cavan area is particularly rich in archaeological sites. Throughout Co. Cavan many people lived on artificial islands or Crannogs. Some of these were used for hundreds of years.

Missionaries converted the area to Christianity in the 6th century. One of them, St Feidhlim founded a church at Kilmore, while St Mogue set up an abbey at Drumlane.

In the Later Middle Ages (1200-1600), Cavan was a border area. It remained under the control of Irish chieftains. The Anglo-Normans had settled to the west and south. They even tried to conquer Cavan but were driven back. They built a castle at Lough Oughter. In 1579 County Cavan took on its present boundaries.

In the early 17th century Cavan was settled by planters from England and Scotland who laid the foundations for many of the county's town and villages, like Belturbet, Killeshandra and Virginia. In the next century their descendants built fine houses, many of which are still standing. Cavan's history as a holiday destination dates from this time, when visitors from all over Ireland flocked to the mineral spas at Swanlinbar.

The countryside prospered with the growth of the linen industry. The process of turning flax plants into linen took place locally. The cloth was then sold in Cootehill. The population grew dramatically, and in 1841 it was nearly a quarter of a million people - over four times the current population. At this time over half the population depended entirely on potatoes for food. When the potato crop failed for two successive years in 1845 and 1846, there was widespread stArvaghtion and hardship.

After the Famine Co. Cavan became a very rural area, with many lively market towns and villages, but few industries. Many emigrated in search of work to America, Canada, Australia and New Zealand, where some gained wealth and fame. Cavan was linked to the outside world by railways. None are in use but attempts are being made to restore some of them.

The partition of Ireland in 1922 made Cavan into a border area once again, though thankfully it was spared involvement in the conflicts of recent years. The population is now rising again and there is a general feeling of optimism.

5. DNA Theory: The World Scene
Brit-Am does NOT AGREE with present DNA theory
but aspects of it could be valid.
The following sketch as to what the present theory says
is provided for interest sake.
You may as well know what they say.
Y-DNA =male transmitted
mtDNA (female)is a different story and will be summarized at another time.

It (says the theory) all began with A still found in Bushmen etc of Africa.
Followed by B pygmies etc of Africa
Also followed by C and F.
C gave rise to Australian Aborigines, Maoris, Ainu, etc
D and E developed from C.
D are Japanese and Tibetans.
E are Negroid Africans and  most African Americans (E3a),
as well as North African Whites, Southeast Europeans, and 20% of Ashkenazic (European) Jews (E3b).

F (which with C developed from A and B) is still found
in small numbers in Indonesia, Middle East, North America.
F gave rise to G H I J  and K  which split aside.
G (East Europe and Asia), H  (India), I (Scandinavians, Germany, Anglo-Saxons, Balkans) J include most Jews, Turks, Kurds, many Caucasians,  and some elements in Balkans etc.
K gave rise to L M  and  P which split aside.
L and M are Indonesia and much of Southeast Asia with L also present in India and Middle East.
P (Asia and South America) gave rise to  N O Q R
N Finland, Russia, Siberia
O Chinese, Koreans and those Japanese who are not D.
Q is Asia and North Amerindians
R Slavs and some "Aryan" Indians (R1a), Celts and West Europeans (R1b), Cameroon Africans, some Australian Aborigines

Note: I myself am R1b, consider myself Semitic-Israelite and only hold by DNA findings
 to a limited extent.
If however someone wanted to consider possible divisions of humanity along DNA lines
only the most logical (according to DNA theory) would be:
1. A, B, D, E
2. F, G, H, I, J
3. K, L, M, P, N, O, Q, R
This however does not fit in with most other information
(and common sense) in our possession.

Since I myself am apparently classified as R1b it is of interest to see what is said about it:

First there was A, a descendant of A left Africa
and experienced mutational changes until becoming super-haplogroup
K. From K emerged the first R (defined by the mutation M173),
 "most of his lineal descendants died off (there still being some M173 in the Dead Sea region of the Middle East and the Camaroons in Africa)".
From R emerged haplogroup R1b1c(mutation M269)  "the direct ancestor in the male line to a majority of men in many parts of Northwestern Europe [and the Iberian Peninsula], but still leave a small group of descendants as in the Middle East (e.g., Syria)."
  About 40% or more of the European Y chromosomes today are R1b.
<<These Hg 1 or Eu 18 (old style), now R1b chromosomes reach a veritable saturation point in the western counties of Ireland (98.5%) and parts of Spain (e.g., the Basque Region) where the numbers are close to or above 90%. R1b declines in frequency from Ireland and Iberia to Eastern Europe where it is scarce. It is still found in West, Central and South Asia, but much more rarely.>>

<<[R1b] M269 is found all over the world today as a legacy of colonialism, to cite just four examples it is found at appreciable frequencies amongst Pacific Islanders, Eskimos (Inuit), Latin Americans/Hispanics and African Americans.>>
A variation is also strong in Turkey.

My own particular type of R1b appears to be strongest in Ireland with offshoots
in Scotland and Cornwall.
