WHO ARE THE ARYANS?

By

History Researcher, Australia

A SUMMARY OF FINDINGS

Everyone has heard of the Aryans of north-west India. Everyone has also heard of Hitler taking this belief to terrible extremes. And everyone who has studied deeply into the subject should be able to see that the Aryans descend from Arphaxad and Aram and are concentrated today in Northern Europe. Let us explore a little deeper into who they were, where their original homeland was and what their standards and values were. For they were proto-Israelites and destined to be the model peoples for the rest of humanity.

The Aryan Homeland
"Aryan" is from the Sanskrit "Arya" and originally meant "best" or "noble" later coming to mean "cultivator". The Greek equivalent was aristocras which means aristocrat [1]. The name survives today in "Iran" and "Eire"[2].

Nobody knows for sure the location of their original homeland. It used to be thought that the area of Germany was their homeland. This was later dropped by atheists who thought that the Aryans were mixed peoples, originating in central Asia. But this theory, a mere guess without substantiation, has been dropped as it needed to be[3].

But if they did originate in central Asia then it is quite incredible that they did not even have a word for "camel"[4]. Further, their original homeland was not desert but a very lush, grassy land were cattle abounded [5] much like north Mesopotamia [6] and the region around Lake Van, or even southern Russia. Today there are two schools of thought concerning their origins: central/south-east Europe or southern Russia around the Black Sea, just north and north-east of the Caucasus. [7] Some are now beginning to say that northern Mesopotamia or Anatolia was their original homeland.

The latter is nearest to the truth for that is where Arphaxad's descendants, or many of them, migrated to. Later, some of them together with Gether the son of Aram, migrated to Scandinavia as the Teutones, while others moved back over the Caucasus. The sons of Joktan found their way into north-west India, later being
joined by other Aryans, Hittites, Kassites etc.

The connections between the Aryans of southern Russia and Europe, with Mesopotamia, is very clear in so many details, one of them being in the similarity in
figurines of goddesses between the two areas [8]. Mesopotamia "influenced" the Aryans, so say historians [9]. Why? Because like all races, they originated in Mesopotamia after Noah's flood before migrating outward. Mesopotamia was the original homeland of all races!

The great western branch of the Indo-Europeans or Aryans is called Indo-Germanic, while that in the east is today known as the Indo-Iranian branch.

Most historians believe that the Aryans "invaded" India and caused the collapse of the Indus Civilization c 1500 B.C. having poured over the Hindu Kush
Mountains [10].

But how can this be?
Indeed there is plenty of evidence of Aryans in India 2000 B.C. and being great contributors to or even originators of the Indus civilization.

Firstly, a crossing of the virtually insurmountable Hindu Kush is impossible with goods, children, wives and cattle [11]. They came rather, from the west through
Iran into India [12]. In fact, Indian tradition does not allow for an "invasion" by Aryans, rather an outflow later towards northern Europe [13]. The Vedic legends
tell of how they initially came into India c2000 B.C. not 1500 B.C. (a secondary movement occurred in 1500 B.C.) [14]. As historians used to think the Hittite
Empire, Troy etc. mere myth, so they think the first 500 years of the Aryan history as myth.

Their chief god was Dyaush-piter - the Father of heaven called Dies piter or Jupiter in Rome. A corruption of this may be the title Djapatischta, meaning chief of the race [15]. This may be referring back to Deutsch, Tuisto or Shem! Or perhaps even Noah.

Aryan Attitudes
Historians describe the Aryans as a people of "creative genius", greatly increasing the artistic, cultural and knowledgeable quality of the areas they conquered [16]. and they were very "conscious" and "touchy" of these attainments, unfortunately swelling up in pride, instead of giving the glory to God Who granted them these abilities for a great purpose - to uplift other peoples in true servant leadership style

Now, these peoples, descended from Shem, had great pride in their handsome features, athletic physiques and white skins [18] which represents light, purity and righteousness. Not that they maintained the righteous character of Shem, but 'white' in scripture is a type of righteousness and purity.

The Aryans looked disdainfully down at the native peoples of India calling them Dasyus or enemies and Dasas or slaves. Their poets praised their bright gods
for slaying the natives and thereby protecting the Aryan colour [19]

"the Aryan, with his finely-formed features, loathed the squat .. . faces of the Aborigines ... The same ... was noticed with regard to a non-Aryan Asiatic tribe, by the companions of Alexander the Great on his Indian expedition, more than one thousand years later." [20]

They called the natives "black and noseless" [21] because of their "enormous racial pride".[22] These conquered peoples were totally segregated by the Aryans and were forced to live outside of the Aryan villages which had walls around them and were even not allowed to partake of their religious rites[23].

To preserve their racial identity, the "caste" system was introduced. Four castes were initiated with the first three being Aryan:

1. Priests or Brahmins
2. Warriors called Rajputs
3. The people in general (agricultural settlers)
4. The non-Aryan tribes

These castes were kept apart and marriage between them was forbidden. In fact, the Sanskrit word for colour, "varna", was later used for caste or social grade [24]. However, no matter how strict the separation of races, intermarriage will eventually occur as new generations arise and water-down the teachings of their forebears. Over time, those Aryans that did not migrate out to northern Europe, bred into the local population and none are extant to this day, although there are people that are not as dark as others in the region. As such, not a single Aryan is extant from this original stock in India today [25]. Only geographical segregation will maintain racial identities; social segregation merely slows down the process.

But racial pride was not unique to the Aryans of India. It exists to this day even in the former British colonies of South Africa, Australasia and North America [26]. All nations should be proud of their ethnic identity.

Centuries ago Tacitus wrote that the Indo-European peoples who passed through the land of Germany had very little, if any, foreign blood [27].

"For myself, I accept the view that the peoples of Germany have never contaminated themselves by intermarriage with foreigners but remain of pure blood, distinct and unlike any other nation"[28].

Baring-Gould writes of how the Germans of the first century were so fussy about keeping their race pure:

"By these laws we learn that there was a race of serfs - conquered people who tilled the land - and the pure-blooded conquerors were not allowed to intermarry with them. If a German did so, then he lost his rights as a free man, and all his children were slaves ... Originally this law, which is found among all old races of Germany, was passed to keep the grand Teutonic blood pure" [29].

Now there has always been a variety within the Nordic race[30]. The Greek word's used by Diodorus and Tacitus referring to blonde or red hair of the northern Europeans is also applied in other writings to auburn or chestnut hair[31].

John Beddoe, famous and authoritative anthropologist of the late 19th century/early twentieth century, remarks how strange it is for humans to see all foreign peoples as uniform. Rather than being all blonde, he says, the blondes stood out as being out-of-the-ordinary. He writes

"Tacitus and several other classic authors speak of the remarkable uniformity in their appearance how they were all tall and handsome, with fierce blue eyes and, yellow hair. Humboldt remarks the tendency we all have, to see only the single type in a strange foreign people, and to shut our eyes to the differences among them ... 'the swarthy Egyptians', struck by the exceptional occurrence of a [small] proportion of blondes among their Libyan foes ..., made use of the peculiarity to distinguish in their wall-paintings the entire Libyan race ... On the whole, then, I distrust or discount much of what old writers said about the fair or red hair of the ancient inhabitants of Europe"[32].

Thereby the Aryan was stereotyped by the "Big Blonde Man" image, when it could easily be thought of as a "Big Brunette Man" or "Big Red-haired Man".

Foundations of Aryan Society
The Aryan peoples, western or eastern branches, believed in the family unit and the father as its head - being protector and nourisher of the family; in turn the mother looked after the children. Thus the tribe was not the unit of society, the family was [33]. Marriage was held sacred [34] and there was little promiscuity
apparently [35].

Further, the father was succeeded by his son - this was the foundation of their "social ordinance". And as with Israel, every Aryan household had as the priest, the head of households [36] or the firstborn.

They also possessed a code of laws, obviously inherited from Shem, like that of Moses. Two examples of this are the Code of Manu in India, and the Code of Khamrnurabi [37].

When their brethren invaded Europe, more-or-less the same beliefs may be found. Tacitus wrote:

"Their marriage code, however, is strict, and no feature of their morality deserves higher praise. They are ... content with one wife apiece" [38].

Private property, the basis of the family unit and of small business private enterprise, was even also looked upon as sacred. They

"will not even have their houses adjoin one another. They dwell apart, dotted about here and there ... Every man leaves an open space around his house"[39].

How like the charge of the Bible:

"Woe unto them that join house to house, that lay field to field." (Isaiah 5:8)

God wants us to enjoy a serene, healthy environment without the antagonisms, filthy and cluttering that high density living generates.

Finally, as Israel was instructed to look after her slaves (slavery was something which God did not want, but which Israel wanted), so the slaves of the Indo-
Europeans were well looked after [40], [41]
.

In conclusion, many basic principles held dear to the heart of the average middle class person today, may find its roots in his Aryan race back to Arphaxad, Aram
and Shem.

Liberty, Populism and Limited Government
Professor Sayce also extols their administrative gifts. The Aryan seemed to prefer a governmental system which gave them maximum freedom wherein

"each small community claims to manage its own affairs [localism] under a local head; Aryan predominance in ancient Greece and Italy was similarly marked by the development of municipal freedom and a dislike of centralisation, and the republics of Northern Italy in the Middle Ages may be regarded as another example of the same spirit" [42].

Localism and federalism are outgrowths of this Aryan "spirit" of freedom and democracy.

Havell, writing in The History of Aryan Rule in India states that the

"scheme of Indo-Aryan polity, in which the common law of the land, formulated by the chosen representatives of the people, had a religious as well as a legal sanction, and represented the highest power of the State to which even the king and his ministers must bow. It will be a surprise to many readers to discover that the Mother of the Western Parliaments had an Aryan relative in India, showing a strong family likeness, before the sixth century B.C." [43].

Equality before the law, democracy and giving everyone 'a fair go' (egalitarianism), in theory at least, is the Aryan ideal.

Another quote is essential. Verna Hall writing in the absolutely superb work Christian History of the Constitution of the USA quotes from John Fiske's The
Beginnings of New England
(1889). Fiske mentions three methods of nation-making:

1. Oriental method - conquest and incorporation
2. Roman method - conquest with incorporation, but without representation

"The third method of nation-making may be called the Teutonic or pre-eminently the English method ... it contains the principle of representation ... [through] federalism ... The idea was familiar to the city communities of ancient Greece, which, along with their intense love of self-government, felt the need of combined action for warding off external attack ...Wherever we find the Teutonic tribes settling down over a wide area, we find them holding their primary assemblies, usually their annual March-meetings [type of Parliament)." [44]

Adcock, writing an essay review in Faith and Thought notes:

"The Anglo-Saxons were our primal democrats! In their little villages they got together in their roots and settled their affairs amicably. This simple set of local government units shows a society in which power and authority came from the grass roots upwards. It was disturbed by the Norman conquest which imposed a continental feudalism on the much more simple feudalism of the ancient English" [45].

Unfortunately today, our elite, High Courts and politicians are slowly but surely reversing true local representation (power at the grass-roots level) and concentrating it more and more in the hands of politicians, big business, the media and the bureaucracy.

Thankfully, Christ will return and restore His government to the earth. His Law will set all men free. Everyone will be married, have a family and own land! No matter how much our governments and big businesses are trying to destroy the family unit today, Christ will restore it!

The Aryans - A Ruling People around the Globe
Racism? Or historical fact? A God-ordained blessing? Or man-made lies?

The Puranas, the Hindu sacred books, - make mention of communication between distant places around the globe and India. They knew about Western Europe, calling it "Varah-Duip" and England as "Sweta Saila" meaning "the Island of the White Cliffs".[46] The Aryans of north-west India were great explorers
and pioneers, much like the British of a few decades ago. They explored the world and a few fragments remain to prove this.

As we have seen, the Aryan of north-west India were a white people, being the western branch of the descendants of Arphaxad and Aram, and therefore directly related to the white peoples of North-Western Europe [47]. Even to the present time, certain English words bear resemblance to Indian [48].

Historians relate how the early settlers of Italy (who built Rome) and of Greece (who built Athens and Sparta) were all Indo-Europeans. The Etruscans, Trojan
Romans, early Greeks, early Italian and Greek colonies in Spain, the ancient Brythons and the northern Celts, were the vanguard of the Aryan push into Europe - all of these peoples were Aryans [49]


The Goths, Hauls, Vandals and others which set themselves up 1500 years later - as a ruling class in Portugal, Spain and Italy were also from the same stock. In Russia too, the ruling elite was "Indo-European" [50]..

Although Europe is where the Aryan-Nordics are now concentrated, they were anciently in the: Americas. Soon after the rediscovery of North America, knowledge of a fair-skinned race inhabiting North America soon reached the intellectuals of Europe, one of whom, Hugo Grotius, said that there must have been
Germans in North America originally! [51].

Barry Fell in his astounding work America B.C. proves beyond doubt that Celts were early in America [52]. Nordic peoples of Israelitish stock were also in eastern America early. Today, traces of early Hebrew may be found in the language of the Indians of New England [53]. And Dr Cyrus Gordon also maintains that Hebrews were at an early time in America [54]. Another authority, Dr van Wuthenau, remarks in his book on how surprised he was with similar discoveries [55].

Thor Heyerdahl's work Early Man and the Ocean is a crucial work in this regard. He proves that men were crossing the oceans, spreading both their genes and cultures thousands of years before Columbus [56]..

We know that the earliest settlers of Peru were White-skinned and red-bearded [57] and that the Mandan Indians appear to be remnants of the followers of the god Votan.

We also know from traditions, archaeology and history that the early Toltecs were White and many were blonde - even as late as the 10th century A.D.[58] The Spaniards heard from the Toltecs that Quezalcoatl was white.[59] and that a White, light-skinned people who were tall, many with blue eyes, landed at Tamoanchan anciently. [60]

Throughout the Popul Vuh, the Mayas claim that there were many Whites amongst thern with beards, blue eyes and that they came from the east.[61] One of their religious pantheons was dominated by Kukulcan, the White god, who came to teach them the laws and sciences.[62]

The nobility of the Aztecs were northern European in racial type, proven by carvings of them. [63] Verril, for instance, wrote that the Mayas, Aztecs and Incas
were anciently led by White peoples. These people

"who formed the ruling classes, - the priests, etc - were, we know from the records of the Spaniards, a much lighter-coloured lot than their subjects, and possessed almost Caucasian features." [64]

Drake wrote how the Incas were "tall. fair-skinned with delicate features, aquiline noses and red or brown hair." [65]

Howey similarly asserts that "One third of this [Maya) tongue is pure Greek. Who brought the dialect of Homer to America? Or who took to Greece that of the Mayas?" [66]

While van Evrie wrote that the "Toltecs, Aztecs, etc., are simply the remnants of extinct Caucasians." [67]

Also, many of the major gods of the Indians were White, such as

• Quetzalcoatl - white Aztec god (Mexico)
• Kukulcan - white Maya god (central America)
• Viracocha - white Inca god (Peru)
• Kane - white Hawaiian god (Hawaii)

Even In The Pacific
We know that there was a white race in Polynesia anciently too as recorded in minute detail in Heyerdahl's American Indians in the Pacific. The brown Polynesians saw themselves as being the middle caste, the Melanesians as being the lowest caste and the blonde and red-headed peoples as the most beautiful -
"angels". They venerated the white skin, seeing it as the highest ideal of beauty. [68]

Even some of the aboriginal tribes of New Zealand were whites, with blonde or red hair. The Maori invaders slew them and intermarried with the remnants. [69]

The early visitors of the second wave of Whites to the Pacific over the last 200 years, have been "struck" by the Hebrew and Chaldean teachings in the region,
including the similarities to the Old Testament accounts regarding creation, the Noahicean flood and so on. [70] Their lighter skinned leaders had much in common with the ancient Israelites.[71]

The customs of the Maoris are quite remarkably similar to that of the Hebrews. These included similar ceremonial and dietary rules, a Jubilee Year and a sacred harvest month, similar to the Hebrew month of Tishri which featured the Feast of Ingathering or Tabernacles. [72]

Even the Yuchis Indians in America keep a feast of booths similar to that which the Hebrews kept [73] using Hebrew names for "God" in their ceremony. This has
led Cyrus Gordon, author of Before Columbus to conclude that many of the white, fair peoples scattered worldwide may have been Israelites looking after the
commercial interests of Solomon.[74] Could this be true? Did Solomon establish colonies one thousand years B.C.? Did his ships circle the globe?

Everywhere the descendants of Arphaxad and Aram have gone they have formed a ruling class because of their God-given administrative abilities. Whether it be
in Egypt, the Canary Islands, [75] Peru, Easter Island, or Mexico [76], and perhaps even China, they have always been leaders [77], until they started intermarrying and disappeared as a distinct species.

The British Empire would be a modern example of the descendants of Arphaxad re-asserting themselves over other peoples, uplifting them to new heights, for such is their God-ordained global servant-leadership mission. It is unfortunate that the Aryan is imperfect and also did much harm in the countries he conquered. They have not learnt their lessons through severe trials - when Christ returns to this planet, He will once again use these peoples to re-educate the world.

Perhaps it is these Aryans who were the mysterious "Children of the Sun" and "culture heroes" who organised magnificent civilizations all over the globe.
Perry wrote:

"Wherever it is possible to examine the ruling classes of the archaic civilisation, it is found that they were what are termed gods, that they had the attributes of gods [due to their organisational capacity and inventiveness], and that they usually called themselves 'the Children of the Sun' "[78]

Another concurs:

"Mr. Perry has described at great length and with a wealth of detail the amazing story of the penetration by these 'Children of the Sun' of nearly the whole world, so that the signs of them are visible in India, in the Malay, in China, Japan and the Pacific Islands and in Central America and Peru (the Incas)."[79]

Finally,as Poliakov writes, it was commonly believed among the religionists that the Chaldeans (through Arphaxad and Abraham) were "masters of the planet".
This belief was supplanted in the nineteenth century by new evidence coming to light that the Aryans were masters. [80]

Little did they realise that the original Chaldeans (descendants of Arphaxad) were the Aryans!
