I think a more pertinent question is why
the public isn't more knowledgeable of the Ancient Aryan people who originally spread into Europe
from the Persian cradle of civilization some 2000 to 3000 years before the birth of Christ?
History of the Ancient Aryans: Outlined in Zoroastrian scriptures.
Mummies of these very ancient Europeans have been found in peat bogs and in the Alps — refer to the discovery of Utsi the so-called Ice Man
— and as far east as China, where their mummies predate the earliest known Chinese civilization, as well as the islands of Japan (the native
inhabitants of Japan were Caucasians, still known to this day as the Indo-Aryans, who were seemingly thousands of miles displaced from their native
lands). There is even speculation that the Aryans seeded oriental civilization.
It is accepted that the Aryans seeded virtually all languages of ancient Europe and were very technically advanced in metallurgy, textiles, medicine,
physical therapy such as acupuncture, decorative pigments, and weaponry.
The "Ice Man," for example, a 5000-year-old mummy discovered in the Italian Alps, hidden beneath a retreating glacier, bore acupuncture tattoos
along his spine (some 1000 years before the first Chinese civilizations arose), was carrying therapeutic mushrooms in his medicine bag, wore
well-tailored clothing and boots, and was toting a beautiful and sophisticated bronze axe...about 1000 years before the acknowledged advent of the
Bronze Age in that part of Europe.
For some reason, modern scientists and historians scorn
the existence of very early (almost prehistoric) advanced civilizations in the West.
They prefer to credit the Chinese with all manner of technical advances while Europe still slumbered in savage ignorance — yet the evidence seems to
suggest that technical prowess may have actually migrated from West to East. Which is pretty cool.
It suggests that there may be a great deal we are ignoring about the earliest days of human civilization — data that could, theoretically, answer a
lot of our lingering questions about "prehistoric" monolithic structures around the world, not to mention the many bizarre but strangely similar
myths of "super civilizations" in the distant past.
Just for the record, the term Aryan
wasn't dreamed up by bigots and Nazis... Rather, bigots and Nazis appropriated
the stories of the
ancient Aryans to buttress their political aspirations in the early 20th Century, just as Nazis appropriated
certain symbology (such as the
very ancient symbol of good fortune, the Swastika). Unfortunately, such artifacts of ancient history were tainted by twisted modern opportunists.
I mean, hell, a thousand years from now, our own Statue of Liberty — her torch in one hand, a book in the other — may be
misinterpreted/reinterpreted as a goddess of book burning, right?
