Israelite Mariners of Tribe of Dan Sailed to Ireland After Ice Age Where Patriarch Changed to Goddess Dana


Many of the Danites who settled along Israel’s northern coast on the Mediterranean (after Joshua led the Israelites’ invasion of the Promised Land from the east) learned navigation from the Sidonians just up the coast and commenced their own long-distance voyaging from the Joppa, some of them having sailed to Ireland where they became known as the Tuatha de Danaan which means tribe of the goddess Dana, so apparently those Danites, short on inculcation in the Word (having departed Israel), decided to change their namesake to a goddess. This is clearly born-out by the facts that Bilhah, Dan’s mother, was said to have been Bela by the Greeks, and Welsh legend that Beli was the consort of Don (Dan).
