The Celts and Menhirs, Les Celtes et les Menhirs.

Irish Menhir

Irish Menhir

in 18th and 19th century Historians have linked those free standing stone called “Menhir” to the Celts. 19th century also has seen the rise of nationalism in the entire Europe and in France in particular, the Celts became the original people of the land according to historians and politicians alike. They organized the rise of heroes such as Vercingetorix, the Druids, the Bards and even Joan of Arc who had been totally forgotten by that time even in Orleans had her name on statues and streets and schools. So all of the sudden those standing stone (Maen= stone in old Celtic Britton and hir=standing) started to become important to archaeologists and historians. Celts didn’t venerate stones in general. Celts were nature worshipers, springs, trees, wells and slow moving rivers they associated with the snake Goddess which the called a “Wouivre”. Back in the 19th century nearly everyone with a little education, a degree of some sort (real or made up) or simply enough money to print few business cards could call him or herself a historian or an archaeologist. Unfortunately for the most part they were mostly grave robbers who sold their loot for best offer and private museums are often better furnished than official one.

Cartoonists such as Goscinny and Uderzo have not helped, entire generation of French kids who are now in their 60’s and 70’s believe that Celts were the one who raised the stones and held ceremonies in front of them. Oddly the majority doesn’t believe in that famous magical potion distributed by Panoramix the Druids (another character in the Asterix saga) and see it as a joke. I’m not saying the Druids knew how to render a man (or a woman) invincible, but they did know about some potions that appeared dangerous enough to make Caesar decide to eliminate that cast. And his excuse for doing so, accusing Druids to use human sacrifices is laughable at best coming from a Roman. After all they didn’t mind wiping out (or nearly) entire populations who didn’t want to follow their rules? One has simply to read history books about the Roman Empire to realize it.

Did the Celts use those Menhir for real worship? Probably not, but they recognize and respected them as magical places. They probably viewed them for what they were, important symbols to those who cut them and set them up. It would be interesting to check if some “dolmen” which had been used for human sacrifices were in fact used those who set them up or the Celts, or perhaps even both. Dolmen (which mean stone table) were often set above a chamber which made archaeologists say they were burial sites although there no indication they have been used as such.

Who were those who set them up? According to modern researchers, Menhirs were carved and set up by the “Beaker people” and Dolmen were already there. If this statement could be valid for the Western Europe, and even Easter Europe, is it valid for Asia? Or Africa? There are some free standing stones there also! Did the Beaker people move that much?

Could an older culture had to installed menhirs and dolmen alie? They are often called phallic structure but until the fifth millennium before the common era (BCE) most cultures were Goddess worshipers so why would they set up phallic monuments? Could they be markers for special places? Perhaps it would be for other to find.

The Celtic Challenge, le defi Celte

celtic-man

Celts presents us with an incredible challenge. They left very little traces to study, we have approximation of their travels, approximation about periods, and some myths that have come to the XXI th century with all the fallacies related to poor translation and religious zealous alterations. Indeed I do not think a Gwydion or a Taliesin would ever worried about what Christ would think of his actions like it was translated in the “story of Taliesin” a part of the Mabinogion. And yet we find Christian morals in the later.

The Celts known and unknown, Les Celtes ces gens connus et inconnus.

Possible Celtic routes

To make an expose about the Celts is not an easy task. All tribes were ethnically of the same origin albeit very little known of the said origin.   They were tribal in Western Europe but were they originally?  Their Westward migration did spread over several centuries which begs the question: Were the Celts arriving in France 3000 years ago the same as those who arrive perhaps earlier?  Or those who arrived later?   Where they of an original tribe that disbanded over the millenniums? Did they share the same way of life? Did the Celts of what is now Ireland shared the same culture has those who have inhabited Poland or Portugal? Where they the same as those who settled in Egypt (See the excellent article by Natalia Klimczak of Ancient Origins on the subject)
Celts were what is called now of Indo-European descent which means they came from what is now known as Northern India and Pakistan. They started mowing Westward as far back as the third millennium (1000 BCE) or even before. Several possible routes were available to them the most commonly accepted by historians would have been through Iran Iraq Syria and Turkey. New archaeological discoveries show they settled in the Kalish-Koło (pronounce Kowo)-Kalish area at about the same time they settle in Romania Austria Bavaria timeline based on the grave sites found in those area which are know as the Tene Culture.  Being so far North East (Konin is on the same parallel as London) may very well suggests a route through Kazakhstan Russia and Ukraine (Another great article by Natalia Klimczak on the Celts of Poland in Ancient Origins).

The Templars and the Druids, Les Templiers et les Druids

Growing up, we often discover ourselves some hobbies  who vanish as we grow 0lder however sometimes they resurface later in life. This was the case for me anyway. The first book have read about Templars was by Louis Charpentier (previously cited):”Les Mysteres Templiers (Robert Laffont Paris 1967 ISBN 3 231 00327-6) a book that was never translated to English.

The good old days, le bon vieux temps

Leave it to no one really. The good old days were actually innocence, the art of not knowing the truth

For a spell there I wanted to leave the page blank…… my idea of the good old days but some people may not have understood the concept for the right or the wrong reason. I will explain at the end.

Awakening, The morning of the magicians, Éveil Le matin des magiciens.

Yes this is my copy.

[/media-credit] Yes this is my copy.

When I look at the vast majority of inhabitants of this planet today, I do not see people but ghosts. Those inhabitants look sick. It looks as if they have a virus of some sort. Since I live in France for the moment I call it the “H&M syndrome” or the “Ikea syndrome”. Of course in some other countries it would be called differently. H&M is for clothing what Ikea is for furniture: ugly cheap and without any quality whatsoever and can be trashed after being used a couple of time, if you have the guts to wear it that is and yet for some odd reasons everyone wants them. What does it have to do with Bergier and Pauwels’ book?

First the migrants then the guns D’abord les migrants ensuite les armes

 

First the invad migrants then the guns D’abord les envahis migrants ensuite les armes.

This is how the title should have been but my system doesn’t allow me to do it.  When I first read about about a attempt of smuggling guns into Greece I didn’t really want to write about it, I was sure it would make the headline everywhere but now, it has been a week and nothing.

Islamists want to ban Oktoberfest in Munich… Islamistes veulent arreter Oktoberfest.

Dear City council of Munich,

I am writing this letter to bring to your attention something that I
and many Muslims believe is unfair and requires attention. I would like to inform you that the Oktoberfest is an Intolerant and Anti-Islamic event. We tried to ignore the event, but there too many Un-Islamic acts done at the Oktoberfest. Such as alcohol consumption, public nudity etc.

We understand that the Oktoberfest is a yearly German tradition, but we, Muslims, can not tolerate this Un-Islamic event, because it offends us and all Muslims on the earth. We are requesting the immediate cancellation of the upcoming Oktoberfest event.

We also believe that the Oktoberfest might also offend all the Muslim refugees coming from Syria, Iraq,
Afghanistan. The cancellation of the Oktoberfest event will help refugees not to forget their Islamic history. Thank you for your attention to this matter.

Sincerely,

Morad Almuradi

The Kalergi plan paradox le paradoxe du plan Kalergi

This a Charlemagne prize recipient a true peace hero (image from here http://www.peacemuseumvienna.com/windows-for-peace/peace-heroes/

http://www.peacemuseumvienna.com/windows-for-peace/peace-heroes/

When I make references to the Kalergi plan, I am often being called racist bastard which is highly ironic since Kalergi is the  guy who wanted to create a lower race.

In his book «Praktischer Idealismus», the Kalergi indicates that residents of the future ” United States of Europe” will not be the traditional peoples of the continent , but a kind of sub-humans who will come from miscegenation . Clearly states that should the peoples of Europe to interbreed with Asian and colored races , so as to create a multinational flock without quality and easily controlled by the ruling class .

If he wasn’t in a Nietzsche mode who was in search of the “superman” he was in the “subrace” mode, contrary to the nazi parti the Germanen order  (Gesellschaft), the Thule Gesellschaft who wanted to create the Ubermensh.

Did Hitler died in Berlin? Est-ce qu’Hitler est mort a Berlin?

Although only 115 of those medals were awarded there are thousands of them for sale on the net.

Although only 115 of those medals were awarded there are thousands of them for sale on the net. If you are interested in this authentic one see at the bottom of the post on the ways to contact me directly

What do most historians and conspiracy theorist alike have in common? They look at making a quick buck without to much work. We all know the traditional history. When the Russian army arrived in Berlin regardless of tanks and other artillery, combats were street by streets block by block house by house. All consideration taken the Germans fought bravely. Most of them were either veterans of WW1 or kids from the Hitler Youth
