In the oral and written traditions of many cultures—ancient Mesopotamia, Asia Minor, North and South America, Egypt, China and Central and Eastern Europe—there are stories of “magicians” and “wizards” and “lords of great knowledge and skill”. Supposedly, according to myth and legend, they taught our ancestors the rudiments of civilization. According to the ancients, without their assistance there would be no modern civilization today.
In the early 1990s German archaeologist, the late Professor Klaus Schmidt, discovered a site which has started a revolution in our understanding of the human past. Until this time the Sumerian civilization was considered the oldest civilization, the first to develop architecture, agriculture, writing etc. The Sumerian civilization dates to around 3,500 B.C. Klaus Schmidt found a site so ancient that it dates back to a time humans were only thought to be barely out of the caves, long before any form of architecture, agriculture or organized societies were thought to have existed, except in Plato’s imagination and his famous Atlantis, a staggering 12,600 years old. I am, of course, talking about Gobekli Tepe, which everyone from Andrew Collins, Laird Scranton to Graham Hancock has been discussing these past few years.
Gobekli Tepe, known for its towering T-shaped pillars featuring carved figures of strange animals dating back to 9600 B.C., is perhaps the eighth wonder of the ancient world, and chronologically should be called the first. Not far from Gobekli Tepe are the ruins of the ancient city of Urfa. It was there that the oldest known statue of a human being was ever found. Its large head, long, narrowed face, and protruding nose, part of it wacked off perhaps centuries ago, prompting some like David Wilcock, ancient aliens expert and author of The Acension Mysteries, to suggest that Urfa man was an “alien” wearing a strange space suit. On the contrary, with his round, recessed-eyes, typical stylized tunic of the era and folded hands, Urfa man looks strikingly similar to the ancient Indo-European-speaking people of his day. Who was he? Was it the image of a long-dead king? Or priest? Perhaps a soldier or statesman? Or maybe even an ancient god? We may never know the truth. However, what is certain is that this level of sophistication in scientific and astronomical knowledge and in architecture that Gobekli Tepe clearly represents, 12,600 years ago, demonstrates that even earlier civilizations must have preceded it. As David Childress has pointed out, it is impossible to accurately date megalithic blocks of stone because such dating methods such as carbon-14 dating can only be done on organic matter found in and around the site, not the structures themselves which are non-organic. That means, that these Neolithic sites could be far older than previously thought and literally date back to the beginnings of the first Europeans to inhabit those areas.
Graham Hancock has suggested that this was built by the survivors of a now extinct lost civilization that ended around 9600 B.C. He further eludes to the assumption that this was built by non-whites. In Fingerprints of the Gods, he calls them “proud Africans.” He has even suggested that this lost civilization was multicultural in nature, thereby trying to justify the anti-white agenda.
I believe that ancient culture never did go extinct, but survived and continued on Europe and the Near East, a civilization that would be called Western Civilization. The collapse of the West during the fall of the Roman Empire was only temporary. That alone sets us back to an even less sophisticated culture than that which thrived 9,000 years ago. Its technology itself was built on the use of megaliths and other semi-permanent structures, not the computerized technology of today. These megalithic blocks of stone and additional monumental architecture, that the civilizing missionaries of our race sought to create, were far more sophisticated than even our most advanced computers. They detailed a level of astronomical precision and accomplishment that dismays and mystifies us today.
In a sense, the lost civilization of Hancock’s vision did not end. It continued, and the great wonders of the ancient world were a continual process of that very ancient civilization. Its longevity and perhaps recurrent disasters have muddled our own understanding of it, perhaps the catastrophes of the middle ages and the rise of Christianity, as well as apparent miscegenation during those periods, blurred its history. But the building of Gobekli Tepe points to the same source as Carnac in France, Stonehenge and Callanish in Great Britain, Newgrange in Ireland, and many megalithic sites worldwide. These sites point directly to Europe and Central Asia. It is in Western Eurasia that we find the oldest, complete civilizations and the oldest emergence of astronomy and astrology.
THE REMOTE PREHISTORY OF THE HUMAN RACE
When we speak of an ancient proto-Aryan race we are then talking not about a politically-motivated conception of a Nazi super race, but of a very ancient race going back tens of thousands, if not millions of years. Such astronomical figures seemed spell-binding at first, but there is evidence of a superior race dating back to just such a remote era. Michael Cremo, authors of the books Forbidden Archaeology and Human Devolution, presents an alternative explanation of the age of our species, directly taken from the Puranas, Vedas and other sanskrit writings of India. The Sanskrits writing of ancient India are Indo-Aryan in origin, the holy scriptures of our forgotten ancestors. They speak in their mythology of a tremendous expanse of time in which human beings lived on Earth and fostered continual cycles of civilization, which are born then destroyed, only to begin the cycle anew. This is in agreement with the book Hamlet’s Mill by Hertha von Dechend, which talks about this constant regeneration of civilization which we saw in our history, with the crumbling of the Western Roman Empire. This story of cataclysm and upheaval ended with Europe’s re-emergence from the darkness and the rise of Western Man once again as masters of the Earth. In Forbidden Archaeology Mr. Cremo recounts evidence in archaeology, often hidden by academics, that suggest that the current dating of the Earth and the notion that we evolved from primitive hominids and that anatomical modern humans have existed only for the past 100,000 years, is a myth. He has found evidence of not only modern Homo Sapiens in such a tremendously ancient era, but has found within that era evidence of anatomically modern skeletons with distinct Caucasian traits, similar to those found in Kennewick Washington in the early 1990s. With regards to finds in Africa, a keystone location in the Out of Africa Theory, Michael Cremo writes:
East Africa discovered footprints in volcanic ash deposits over 3.6 million years old. Mary Leakey and others said the prints were indistinguishable from those of modern humans. To these scientists, this meant only that the human ancestors of 3.6 million years ago had remarkably modern feet. But according to other scientists, such as physical anthropologist R. H. Tuttle of the University of Chicago, fossil bones of the known australopithecines of 3.6 million years ago show they had feet that were distinctly apelike. Hence they were incompatible with the Laetoli prints. In an article in the March 1990 issue of Natural History, Tuttle confessed that “we are left with somewhat of a mystery.” It seems permissible, therefore, to consider a possibility neither Tuttle nor Leakey mentioned–that creatures with anatomically modern human bodies to match their anatomically modern human feet existed some 3.6 million years ago in East Africa. Perhaps, as suggested in the illustration on the opposite page, they coexisted with more apelike 2 creatures. As intriguing as this archaeological possibility may be, current ideas about human evolution forbid it. Knowledgeable persons will warn against positing the existence of anatomically modern humans millions of years ago on the slim basis of the Laetoli footprints. But there is further evidence. Over the past few decades, scientists in Africa have uncovered fossil bones that look remarkably human. In 1965, Bryan Patterson and W. W. Howells found a surprisingly modern humerus (upper arm bone) at Kanapoi, Kenya. Scientists judged the humerus to be over 4 million years old. Henry M. McHenry and Robert S. Corruccini of the University of California said the Kanapoi humerus was “barely distinguishable from modern Homo.” Similarly, Richard Leakey said the ER 1481 femur (thighbone) from Lake Turkana, Kenya, found in 1972, was indistinguishable from that of modern humans. Scientists normally assign the ER 1481 femur, which is about 2 million years old, to prehuman Homo habilis. But since the ER 1481 femur was found by itself, one cannot rule out the possibility that the rest of the skeleton was also anatomically modern. Interestingly enough, in 1913 the German scientist Hans Reck found at Olduvai Gorge, Tanzania, a complete anatomically modern human skeleton in strata over 1 million years old, inspiring decades of controversy. Here again, some will caution us not to set a few isolated and controversial examples against the overwhelming amount of noncontroversial evidence showing that anatomically modern humans evolved from more apelike creatures fairly recently–about 100,000 years ago, in Africa, and, in the view of some, in other parts of the world as well.
Arthur Kemp once commented that it is uncertain as to the origin of the white race. He felt that there is no certain evidence that the white race began in Europe. In fact, the idea that Caucasian racial traits, including light-skin, were the product of environmental adaptations is uncertain. For all we know, the white race could have evolved in Asia, or even North Africa, or Eastern Africa. What we do know is that when whites first entered Europe, they already had the defining characteristics which would identify them as ancient whites. I must caution those who accept Kemp’s viewpoint as logical. With our current knowledge of human evolution as well as comparative racial biology, we can conclude if Europeans did not evolve into the modern white race in Europe, then it must have been in another harsh, highly mountainous and wooded environment. That leaves us the Himalayas and the colder environments of northeast Asia. Many adherents to Christian Identity still place the Urheimat, or homeland of the Indo-Europeans, in this area. But frankly I find the idea that our kind evolved in Egypt or another African-like climate to be contrary not only to our biology, but also our myths, language and culture, which clearly places emphasis on mountains, forests and cold, frigid regions of the earth, not hot, sand-swept deserts.
In their book Black Genesis: The Prehistoric Origins of Ancient Egypt, Robet Bauval and Thomas Brophy discussed the North African civilizations and Central Saharan site of Nabta Playa. In it, they discussed the connection between the “astroceremonial culture of the prehistoric peoples of Nabta Playa, and the symbology in the monumental architecture of the earliest temples of the Nile Valley civilization—the people who built the Great Pyramids.” They showed how how the megalithic stone alignments of the Nabta emphasize the stars of the cirumpolar region-and how they rotate around the north star.” Mr. Brophy writes:
The people of Nabta Playa, and their successors, the Nile Valley temple building civilization, tracked the circumpolar stars of the Big Dipper (called the Bull’s Thigh by the ancient Egyptians) together with the annual rising of Sirius and the stars of the Orion Belt.
The system of stones at Nabta Playa, consist of the “Calendar Circle” as well as other precisely set stone to track the star Vega. The site is estimated to have been built around 6100 B.C. This northerly emphasis with regards to the ancient skies does not make sense if it is a sub-saharran African culture as Brophy and Bauvall believe. Why would an ancient black civilization care so much about the skies of the north? A culture originating from this far away land of ice and snow, an ancient Aryan people would have far more reason to build such a calendar in this respect. We know that the builders of Gobekli Tepe and the inhabitants of Urfa had already built their great contributions of civilization a few thousand years early. But Nabta Playa is significant because it sets the stage of later Egyptian wonders.
BLACK GENESIS OR ARYANS FROM GOBEKLI TEPE?
The pre-Dynastic Egyptians, who many scholars have identified as ancient Caucasians, were primarily desert dwellers and organized in small cities even toward the Sahara. Were they the creators of this site? In both Black Genesis and Imhotep the African, Robert Bauval and Thomas Brophy go the diverse, multicultural route. They suggest, of course, that Africans not only created the site of Nabta Playa but that Imhotep himself was a Black Nubian African and that it was from Africa that Egypt derived its civilization and astronomical-savvy culture. The authors of Black Genesis were correct regarding the link between the creator of Nabta Playa and the builders of the first pyramids. In March of the Titans, Arthur Kemp elaborates:
Although situated in North Africa, Egypt had been settled by three white groups prior to 3500 B.C., namely Old European Mediterranean types, Proto-Nordics, and Nordic Indo-Europeans, with the latter group penetrating the territory as part of the great wave of Indo-European invasions which took place from 5600 B.C onward.
Genetic Analysis of King Tut as well as many of the mummies, information hidden by the former General Secretary of Antiquities Zahi Hawass, shows that they originated south of the Black Sea and their Haplogroups are most common to peoples in Great Britain, Northern France, the Lowlands, and Western Germany. In the closing chapter of his his other less-notable but equally as significant book The Children of Ra, Arthur Kemp again writes:
From the evidence already reviewed, the true course of events in Egyptian racial history has become apparent. Ancient Egypt started out as a largely white Caucasian society, which over a period of time, absorbed increasing amounts of Semitic and Nubian elements. Does the genetic evidence back up the historical record? In a word: Yes. One of the first DNA studies of modern Egypt was conducted by G. Lucotte et. A, and published in the American Journal of Physical Anthropology, Volume 121, Issue 1, Pages 63-66, in April 2003. The study, of Y-Chromosome (that part of the DNA inherited directly through the male line) from the Nile River Vallley, found that present-day Egyptian male lines are of thoroughly mixed-racial origin. . . In addition, the study also found traces of haplotype Xvm which it described as follows: “Haplogroup XV is the most widespread Y haplotype in western Europe, where its frequency decreases from west to east.” The study estimated the haplotyope XV input to be of the order of 5.5 percent, a suprisingly large amount given the high degree of racial change to which Egypt has been subjected. Tutankhamaun’s Male Lineage DNA is a 99.6 percent match with western Y chromosomes. Unintentionally leaked DNA results from a television documentary on the genetic testing of Egyptian pharoah Tutankhamum revealed that his paternal lineage is a 99.6 percent match with western Europe Y-chromosomes.” His father was Akhenaten. We now know he was not an extraterrestrial hybrid nor a close cousin of former President Barack Obama as has been lightly suggested. On the contrary, his father’s physical oddities were most likely a genetic defect, but his bloodline was related to that of Northwestern Europe.”
This author would like to take the license to also verify some other anthropological DNA evidence. This is important to dismiss Bauval’s African-origin idea before I continue. Kemp states that the British anthropologist G.M. Morant had initiated a detailed study of Egyptian skulls. These ranged from commoner graves and royal graves from all parts of the Egyptian lands and times. His conclusions were that the majority of the population of Low Egypt—that is in the northern part of the country—were members of the Mediterranean white subrace. In the south (or Upper Egypt) this population pattern was repeated but showed a certain percentage of black admixture (reflecting the proximity of the Nubian settlement.) With regards to Imhotep and those who would undertake the design of architectural structures or standing stones, like Tutankhamun were of Nordic extraction, as they were a pure-blooded aristocracy that was carefully inbred to avoid defilement outside the royal line.
In future articles, we will continue the discussion concerning the length and involvement of white racial types in that part of Africa. Although one cannot outrule that the Nubians could have achieved this feet independently, if it is so closely related to what the Egyptians built thousands of years later, then it is likely that it was derived from the same source, which would not be Nubian technology, but either Nordic technology, or the equally proficient and capable Old European Mediterranean population that existed in Egypt at the beginning of its civilization many thousands of years into the past.
In his book Ancient Egypt 39,000 BCE: The History, Technology, and Philosophy of Civilization X, the story of ancient Egypt extends this story of prehistory into even greater antiquity, and even darker and less remembered time, which he describes was not at all dark, but a vibrant, advanced culture that could very well represent the mother civilization of the Earth, or at least one part of a much more extended lost global civilization. In a following article this will be further explained and elaborated on. There is a definite streak in academics, and amateur scholars, to prove that culture was founded by anyone other than white Europeans, and that the mere mention of our contributions to civilization must be dismissed as inherently racist and bigoted. On the contrary, Gobekli Tepe in Turkey and other sites in Western Europe, antedate both the Egyptian pyramids and Nabta.
In the 2014 April edition of Ancient American I discussed Ancient American diversity, specifically a number of ancient Caucasian cultures that had existed along side a plethora of ethnic inhabitants during America’s archaic pre-Columbian past. As the proto-Aryans migrated southward and into the fertile steppes, I believe major evolutionary changes were occurring within the population both in terms of culture, social hierarchy and the means of continued survival. I believe that once they reached southern Siberia, and settled permanently in that area the typical Aryan culture developed in earnest. Hinduism has a cosmology not in disagreement with our present scientific and evolutionary model of the world as the claim the earth has existed for billions of years, and the age of the universe is infinite and will continue through a period of destruction and rebirth.
The Aryans, I believe, were master astronomers and this has been the case in India, Old Persia and practically every civilization that they have built. If indeed, Aryans had made contact and settled in the New World, perhaps before the arrival of the Asiatics the astronomical precision at which the megaliths of the Incas and other South Americans seem more justified. The Inca themselves, often tell us that when they arrived to Peru, these buildings were already there and had been erected by the Veriochas who were light-skinned giants with fiery red hair. We find records written down by the Spanish of rare inhabitants with redish hair and freckles, this observation was repeated several times by various other Spanish monks and explorers. Indeed, in the 1990s a number of red-haired mummies were found in the Andes by Dr. Johann Reinhard and discussed in my article featured in Lost Worlds of Ancient America.
