Item description for Diverse Druids by Robert Baird...
History is a web of journalistic intrigue written to benefit those who have been in charge. They won the wars they generated through their NEEDS, and usurped the knowledge of sincere adepts, like Jesus and Buddha. There is no real new insight in this perspective but in this book you will start the process of seeing for yourself just how incredible the gamesmanship or forgery has been. Lactantius was the tutor for the house of Constantine who edited the Bible and designed much of what Christianity has become. This ancient sage was an early promoter of the Flat Earth and he noted there 'will always be those who will lie and forge for religion'.
It is my hope that you can assist the enlightenment that must occur once you see some of the forensic and archaeological information now available. Perhaps more importantly I hope you will find roots to all religion which must develop tolerance and ecumenicism if we are to endure as a species on this planet hurtling ever faster through the unlimited creative and awesome universe we are blessed with.
Some academics decry the Post-Modern era where the knowledge is available for all to make their own judgment about. I have no definite opinion about most things and I hope we all can strive to find the answers together. I look forward to seeing these academics tear apart what I have done as I present information hidden or not employed in any other book. I await the inevitable outcry; but I am sure there are reasons why the great sage Lao Tzu went to see the Ancient Masters of the Tarim Basin where the Red-Heads developed most of the technology and other social systems that we are now finding spread around the world. My speculations that seek to integrate various facts of sciences are not the final answer and I look forward to the reader assisting me in helping bring the 'Brotherhood' back to the forefront of life on Earth.

Reviews - What do customers think about Diverse Druids?
Far from scholarly work May 21, 2007
I am in a quandry as to how this book could be rated as highly as it is here. Anyone reviewing this book with no agenda should beable to see this work for what it is, pap.
Having read and thoroughly enjoyed "The Druids" by Jean Markale, an authority on pre-christian pagan religions in general and Celtic culture & oral traditions in specific, simply thumbing through "Diverse Druids" made me realize this was the work of an armchair amateur on the subject.
Rife with the author's far fetched and unsupportable speculation, and reaking from redigested information that is basic knowledge to anyone with a cursory knowledge of the Druids, this is far from a scholarly work.
Brilliant and Spell Binding Jul 9, 2004
Very informative and quite enlightening. Robert you never cease to amaze me with the multitude, breadth, and depth in your pool of knowledge and the excellence of what must be exhaustive research. The measure of any Cult is how well it can control its people and how much information that it allows them to have access to. I think that that the wheat (halucinogenic ergot) link is right on the money.
If you think you can grow wings and fly when your on a head trip (under the influence of narcotics), its a pretty good guess that when you hit the ground you will have thought that you had flown into a building instead. The mind properly trained is a truely wonderous thing, un-trained it is at best exstreamly dangerious, if not self- destructive. So many great men have crashed and burned for want of self discipline.
Durring the time you speak of, the church was very well organized and and kept its folllowers in the dark (so to speak). If ignorance was bliss then this was indeed a true time of euphoria for the potentate and his multitude of enforcers.
I absolutly love this book. Well written and researched as per your norm, with so many nooks and crannies, I find myself totally hooked.
Mysteries of Mankind Unveiled May 17, 2004
On the paths of the learned, there are casms of void that remain which are, typically surrenderred to the term and category of "mystery." In Diverse Druids, these gaps are addressed and little remains a "mystery." Within it's pages, Mr Baird presents solid connections to the archaics and continuity of the ages, eras, cultures and civilizatio, even to the origin of man. The common threads are those familiar to all people, across a wide spectrum of diverse knowledges and established mindsets. The text provides archaelogical substantiation as well as theological and cultural standards that bind the fragmented gleanings of theory, myth and legend that we all know as the origin of species, to form one cohesive illustration. Anyone who is a passionate enthusiast, dedicated to the pursuit of knowledge, our connections to the archaics and the origin of life or those who seek the answers to all that represents the "missing links" will want to discover the wealth of information and subsequent commonalities that Baird has documented in this book. The world of the "Eire-yann", "Keltoi", the "very tall red-headed giants", uncovered and validated by archaelogical finds cited will resound harmoniously and echo familiar tones of theories known to man regarding the "mighty men of old", the "ogygia-ancient ones" and no doubt remains in the mind of the reader that these are, assuredly, the pre-adamic hom-sapien referred to by mythology, legend, scripture and the memories of the indigenous. Mr Baird las also addressed the underlying issues involved in the evolution of society and culture of civilization throughout the ages as well as exposed the dynamics of empowerment strategies within it's structure and traditions with a brilliant, sound balance of intellect and rationale, combined with historical validity. The reader is compelled to the extremeties of knowledge and prompted to the boundary of realization of that which cannot be denied. One may love or hate the content for it's capacity to challenge widely established and accepted convention. Complacency or apathy will not be an option. It may well be that Robert Baird is become, by this independent, conducive line of reasoning and his ability to encompass the common denominators of all that we wonder about as a species, one of the most profound philosophers and theorists of our time. What is very striking and unique in Diverse Druids is the extremely diverse scope of the author. This vantage lends an unusually wide field of correllations. Hence, this book appeals to a greater audience and pertains to a variety of knowledges including archaelogy, ancient and modern histories of the world, theology, theocracy, sociolgy, psychology, linguistics and philosophy, to name a general gamut. The author provides a paradoxial portal of muti-dimensional vision, encompassing the metamorphosis of man, since the beginning of time. As an enthusiast on the paths of learning and discovery, I cannot deny that 'Diverse Druids' has left me to conclude that perhaps there never were any "missing links." Perhaps all the links have been present all the while, but were obscured by a limited pattern of thinking or narrowed by specification of knowledges. The content will stimulate an otherwise habituated and mundane train of thought. Baird entices the reader to the brink of intellect and introspect. Just as the proverbial "smoke" rises from the fires of wisdom, we achieve clarity as it does and a greater truth is realized, so too, this information provides insightful sound wisdom that "clears the air" concerning the "mysteries of the ages." I recommend Diverse Druids to all who sojourn the greater quest for truth. The circle of life is illuminated by this dimensional spectrum of enlightenment, well grounded in realistic representations. Greater truth of greater substance,unveiled is what radiates from the pages of this monumental read. Intention is reflected on a constant continuum throughout these chapters, and is represented by the author in references to "ecumenicism", "unity", "living love" and the "oneness" of humanity in relation to the greater universe. Mr Baird quotes Albert Einstein as saying, "The intuitive mind mind is a sacred gift and the rational mind is a faithful servant. We have created a society that honors the servant and has forgotten the gift." This mindset is the one Diverse Druids is meant for; for people who know exactly how much we do not know and who do remember the gift and all it implies. Applauding the Greater Quest for Truth and the Greater Truth for Quest.
The elite's secrets that have degraded over the millennia. May 15, 2004
Robert Barid's exploration of history's secret connections is brilliant. By integrating hidden and not presented in any other book various facts of sciences, he clearly shows that our ancestors had much deeper understanding of the Reality than most of the modern people. I had a chance to explore many other books by this author available from his page on the World-Mysteries.com and I highly recommend all of them.

Perkunas being a Keltic Deity?????, April 21, 2004 Reviewer: lilith258 from Toronto, Ontario Canada
Where the *bleep* did Robert get the idea that Perkunas (A Baltic Deity) is Keltic??? Contrary to popular Celtic Reconstructionists wishes the Celts did not go through all of Europe - they never hit the Baltics. To have such a glaring mistake makes me question Mr Baird's scholarship.
The Kelts originated in Northern central Europe, the Kelts were the dominant inhabitants of Europe (Pre Roman period) occupying the territory stretching from Pyrenees to the Rhine and from Ireland to Romania.
PS: Budapest, Paris, and Belgrade all stand on Keltic foundations. PPS: the Lithuanian deity Perkunas was originally the Slavic deity Perun from northern central Europe
