Exploring Spiritual Connections: The Similarities between Mesoamerican Deities and Irish Mythology


Mythology is a fascinating area of study that reveals the beliefs and values of a particular culture. Every culture has its unique mythology, and these stories often have similar themes, imagery, and motifs. In this article, we will explore the similarities between Mesoamerican deities Quetzalcoatl and Kukulkan and the biblical figure Satan, as well as the linguistic similarities between the Irish myth of Cuchulain and the names Setanta and Lugh. We will also postulate upon a possible spiritual connection between the ancient American world and Ireland, which has been expanded upon and inserted into the Bible.

Quetzalcoatl and Kukulkan:

Quetzalcoatl and Kukulkan are two closely related deities from Mesoamerican mythology, both of whom are associated with the feathered serpent. The feathered serpent is a common motif found in different cultures across the world and has many symbolic meanings. In Mesoamerican mythology, it was believed that Quetzalcoatl was responsible for creating humanity and teaching them various arts and crafts, including agriculture and medicine. Kukulkan, on the other hand, was worshipped by the Maya people and was believed to bring rain, wind, and good harvests.

Interestingly, there are some similarities between the imagery associated with Quetzalcoatl, Kukulkan, and that of Satan in the Bible. For instance, Quetzalcoatl and Kukulkan are often depicted as serpents, which is also a common symbol associated with Satan. Additionally, Quetzalcoatl is often referred to as the morning star, and Satan is also called the “son of the morning.” Both of these deities are associated with the dawn, and the symbolism of the serpent and the morning star suggests that they are linked to ideas of knowledge, wisdom, and transformation.

However, it is essential to note that these similarities do not imply any direct influence or connection between Mesoamerican mythology and the Bible. Rather, it is more likely that these similarities reflect universal human experiences and concerns that are expressed through different mythologies using similar symbols and themes.

Jesus is Tempted in the Desert. Mark (1:12 – 15)

The author Mark clearly links Jesus ‘temptation in the desert with the baptism. There, Jesus experiences the divine world in the communication from the Father. In the temptation, however, he is in the desert or wilderness, I.e., the demonic world, the traditional haunt of the evil forces. Forty days’ suggests a link with the 40 years of Israel’s wandering in the desert or wilderness.

Whereas Israel failed during that period, here Jesus succeeds. The author also seems to imply a certain messianic element in this scene, namely, the type of messiahship Jesus would embrace. Jesus thus begins his battle with Satan and the powers of evil. His death and subsequent resurrection will resolve the form of his messiahship and his relationship to the powers of evil.

In the conclusion of this passage the author begins the account of the public ministry of Jesus with a summary. He noted the fate of the Baptist and suggests that the Cross cannot be divorced from a consideration of the person and mission of Jesus. In Jesus, God’s Kingdom, I.e., his providing for the needs of his people, has finally dawned. In Jesus, the new age has begun.

The audience is thus invited to adopt a new way of thinking that will lead to a new way of acting (‘repentance’) and put their trust in the good news of salvation that comes in the person of Jesus. Mark thus presents a Jesus bound up with the world of chaos. Satan and the powers of evil personify that chaos, one that brings in its wake human sickness, perversion, and isolation. The task of Jesus is to overcome such chaotic forces.

The struggle in the desert or wilderness is the beginning of Jesus’ containing of chaos. He proceeds to offset such chaos by proclaiming hope in the form of the kingdom of God, God’s definitive intervention in which he will provide for all the needs of his people. The person of Jesus is God’s finest expression of hope for a choice world.

Kukulkan quatzalcoatl


Here within this post an equation between kukulkan, Satan and Lucifer is made, as they are referred to as being the same character.

Kukulkan: the (feathered serpent).

Satan: the (serpent in the garden of Eden and also a creature with wings).

Kukulkan, Jesus and Lucifer are all referred to as the morning star.

Revelation 22:16, Isaiah 14:12

As this assertion made here alludes to the idea that the Bible stories come from America, with the feathered serpent.

A conclusion did form that the people’s in America who worship the feathered serpent, migrated into Ireland and preserved the feathered serpents name in a mythological story called Cuchuilain, whose childhood name is Sethanta and whose father’s name is Lugh the God of light.

These names Sethanta and Lugh have been expanded upon and inserted into the Bible, Quran and Jewish bible as Satan and lucifer.

I’m not saying that these stories or characters come from Ireland, I’m saying they may have come from America, from the Meso-American pyramid cultures and simply passed through Ireland and were preserved there.

There is a passage from the annals of Cuchuilain where it says he lost his spiritual strength from eating dog meat and therefore we purport that there is an element of spirituality within the myths of Cuchuilain.

This name is preserved as the name lud or lug in Welsh and I’m sure if you look through European mythology you’ll see similar variations in mythological character names.

In an earlier post I made the comment that The word LORD is written in capital letters sometimes because it is an acronym of the words “loyal order of the red dragon”.

The red dragon is a symbol of worship in Wales and it gives us another clue as to where these stories have reached.

The red dragon is often referred to as drake in ancient mythology and a drake is a duck, alluding to the point that the red dragon or the LORD is a reptile, bird or feathered serpent.

Kukulkan, Satan and Lucifer

Cuchuilain, Sethanta and Lugh.

The imagery for the lamb of God may have come from America aswell.

Here’s a link, which explains why.
