About Dr. Ebrill Ffwl

You need to keep in mind that the branches of the Reformed Druids are considered to be “parody religions,” not to be taken too seriously. Therefore Reformed Druids like to joke around a bit.

It is in this spirit that we introduce you to Dr Ebrill Ffwl.   If you use Google Translate, and punch Dr. Ffwl’s name into that engine, your will get this:




April Fools’ Day or All Fools’ Day is an annual custom on 1 April consisting of practical jokes and hoaxes. Jokesters often expose their actions by shouting “April Fools!” at the recipient. Mass media can be involved with these pranks, which may be revealed as such the following day.

The article you’ve just digested was very much written in the spirit of April Fools Day in that the “research” compiled there was basically made up out of whole cloth.  In fact, there is no Ars river to be found in Brittany, or anywhere else on our Planet Earth.

So like Jesus of Nazareth, Dr. Ebrill Ffwl is a complete fiction.  The Ars river, like the town of Nazareth is completely fictional (or at least until the 2nd century CE). During the time Jesus allegedly walked in Judea, there was no town of Nazareth.  It was St. Helena, the Emperor Constantine’s mother, who “discovered”  Nazareth.  She was walking about  in Judea, when she came across a well.  She then had a seizure, and woke up proclaiming she had found  Mary’s well, and there fore the town of Nazareth.   This scenario repeated itself many times during her visit to Judea.  She found where Jesus was crucified, and near by (too near by really) she found the tomb.  She found some pieces of wood (the “cross”)  in that vicinity as well.  In fact, all of the Christian holy places in Judea were discovered by St. Helena.  A few centuries later, during and after the Crusades, churches were built on all of the places found.
