This is pagan thought practised by Druids in Britain. They didn't write anything down!
However, their practices do oddly seem to have parallels with other cultures around the med. This makes a little more sense in this context. They had Apollo (the spear of light at summer solstice), I guess this is your green man. They also had a mother goddess (winter solstice). A fertility goddess (Aphrodite - birth of the day, east - spring equinox of equal day and night) and a goddess of the underworld/night (Artemis-mistress of animals - virgin, Athene type - representing night and autumn equinox - equal day and night).
It's a clever unified system as you can use these to represent cardinal direction, Seasons, day and night and length of the same, all together. Apollo south, mid-day (brightest light) and zenith at summer solstice. Mother goddess North, winter equinox shortest day. BTW this is also the main axis, the serpents refer to the Star constellations of Draco used to find the pole star and the serpent on the equator plane. Collectively, it all made sense.

Keeps Truth away.

My contribution coming up. The Bible and the Greek and Roman and Egyptian myths, everybodys in fact wherever you are, are NOT myths.
They are parables that record in well-disguised forms bro, the creation of Gods, Avatars (the top no 1 variety) Boddhisattvas and saints, through initiation, and subsequent reincarnation etc. The Egyptian Book of the Dead and the Tibetan book of the dead are scriptural guides to these processes. The best book on the subject was in french "La Divinisation de L'Homme, publishe pre-internet in France.

God Himself is ALWAYS incarnate in a human body on Earth ("Behold I am with you ALL DAYS unto the consummation of all things"), so just maybe our interests lie in His direction, though of course, you'll need to quit everything you now are for a few years and live a myth of your own to get to the Man.

The key to understand Christ is the your name original: Emannuel, means "God in Us".

I feel like a jerk saying this, but after doing research into the said things mentioned in your article I couldn't find them..The closest parallel I found was that Mithra (The one that wasn't the Greco-Roman mystery religion) was born of a stone, murdered a bull, and ate dinner with the divine.. As for the green man the only evidence that seems to be found is the use of him in architectural elements which quite a few believe to have been a real man that inspired the usage as such and just got engrained in people's minds, which then switched to animal heads around the 5th century AD.. I always look at evidence and try not to believe or refute it just at face value, but investigate further...This really isn't the "Mythos" of Jesus.

Absolutely agreed, there are various information sources on the flood in historical literature. Just because something is an older account doesn't mean that its the correct or even factual account.. After looking up the various things written about in this article, literally.. It shares nothing past A strange birth (Of a stone in Mithra's case), and.. If you want to draw conclusions Christ's crucifixion and Mithra killing a bull. Then he ate with the divine..So...Yeah definitely connected right there.. Green man? There is literally nothing at all to explain it outside of people's thoughts there is no story or any kind of text found to this day.

In a previous 2-part article (1), the authors wrote about the faulty associations of the Sumerian deities known as the Anunnaki as they are portrayed in the books, television series, and other media, which promotes Ancient Astronaut Theory (hereafter “A.A.T.”).

Ancient Places

Caves of Loltun, Mexico
It goes on speak about the challenges and wonders of Columbus’s voyage to the new lands known today as the Caribbean. It even goes on to mention Columbus’s blunder in assuming that this newly discovered land was India when in fact it was what we know today as the Bahamas.

During the Early Woodland Period (1000—200 BC), the Adena people constructed extensive burial mounds and earthworks throughout the Ohio Valley in Ohio, Indiana, Pennsylvania, Kentucky, and West Virginia. Many of the skeletal remains found in these mounds by early antiquarians and 20th-Century archaeologists were of powerfully-built individuals reaching between 6.5 and eight feet in height (198 cm – 244 cm).

Our Mission

At Ancient Origins, we believe that one of the most important fields of knowledge we can pursue as human beings is our beginnings. And while some people may seem content with the story as it stands, our view is that there exists countless mysteries, scientific anomalies and surprising artifacts that have yet to be discovered and explained.

The goal of Ancient Origins is to highlight recent archaeological discoveries, peer-reviewed academic research and evidence, as well as offering alternative viewpoints and explanations of science, archaeology, mythology, religion and history around the globe.

We’re the only Pop Archaeology site combining scientific research with out-of-the-box perspectives.

By bringing together top experts and authors, this archaeology website explores lost civilizations, examines sacred writings, tours ancient places, investigates ancient discoveries and questions mysterious happenings. Our open community is dedicated to digging into the origins of our species on planet earth, and question wherever the discoveries might take us. We seek to retell the story of our beginnings.
