Strange. I agree with Toyomotor in this thread.

Then, by whatever stick you measure it, we agree.
 
That's what I call a "win win".
 
And, no, I didn't call Fomenko a Nazi, but this other jerk was, and so was Hitler and a number of his higher eschelon, like Himmler for example.

The other way . Norse languages are of germanic origin, like english, gothic and dutch

The word "Norman" is a derivative of "Norsemen" is it not?

    Both. And outdated too.

    Does the name Fomenko ring any bells?
     
    And I don't think penguin "confused" Norse and German, as the Norse became the Germans and Normans, and I think he may have been talking about more recent times.
    Now it is me who are a bit confused. "The norse became the germans"? 
    No, I think they did not, they are not the same though somewhat related, as the different "british" and "iriish" are related or as english and french or spaniards and italians. And what has Fomenko to do with theories about "vikings"?

    I'm not disagreeing with you.
     
    Unfortunately we have a brand new crop of "History Revisionists" who want to twist historical fact to suit their own agenda.
     
    You are quite right in saying that there are idiots who wants to claim the advances in other cultures for their own, and in the process denigrate the original culture.
     
    But the truth is a pretty big hurdle to get over, so we ignore these people where we can.
    What is all this about? Who are those "revisionists"? I find it hard to believe such a "viking South America" theory is very widespread since the only place I have seen it mentioned is in this thread.
    And why confuse "norse" and "german"?

    Who said that Nazism was a Christian movement?
     
    But you might want to read up on the impact of German Christian, Protestant, concepts on the early development of Nazi "dogma"/political policy.  This impact is at time more specifically seen in Nazi "dogma"/political policy towards Jews, but can be seen in the official policy of the early years of attempting to establish a unified Protestant Church under the control of the Reich.  A good read on the subject of the relationship between Nazism and Christianity is The Holy Reich: Naxi Conceptions of Christianity, 1919-1945.
     
    Now none of this means that Nazism was a Christian Movement; it just means that Nazism had elements that were shaped by Christianity and owed their origins to Christian theology.

    OK. I leave the thread. It is impossible to discuss about Nazi beliefs in a civilised manner.
    I'll come back when someone mentions the alliens that landed in Tiahuanaco.

    Do we need a rehashing of the CoC here?  Ad hominem attacks are not acceptable here.  Consider this a friendly reminder.

    It is quite clear by know that the Nazi founders met in the strange Thule lodge, inspired by esoteric works of, among others, Mme. Blavatsky. By the way, Thule means the Atlantis.
    Utter absolute nonsense. Atlantis was a country supposed to have sunk beneath the waves to the west of Gibraltar/Tangier. Thule was the extreme north:  Pliny claimed that Thule was six days sail NORTH of the British Isles. . Thule is seen as an icy northern coutry, rather Scandinavian. Atlantis if seen as a Mediterranean climate countrs that conquered parts of Iberia and the Mediterranean coast as far as Athens (which it failed to take.) Atlantis was supposed to be an advanced ciilisation. Thule was supposed to be a primitive one. Above all, Arlantis is probbaly completely fictional while Thule is probably another name for a genuine country like Norway or Sweden. 
     
    The two have nothing whatsoever in common.

    Most of the Nazis were Christian. It would be untrue of course to say that most Gernam Christians were Nazis, but there were some significant Christian leaders who were. As of 1940 94% of Germans identified themselves as either Protestant or Catholic. A lot more than 6% were supporters of the party.

    According to Seneca, that mentiones Thule in Medea, it seems it was Iceland, but that all the islands from that region of the Atlantic were called Thule. In any case, for the Nazis, that followed Blavatsky and other esoteric writers and mythmakers, Thule was somewhere in the Atlantic.

Perhaps you should pick up and read Peter Gay's Weimar Culture: The Outsider as Insider (1968) in order to understand the actual intellectual currents of Germany in the 1920s.


    Sorry drgonzaga, but studying lunatics as the Nazis can confuse the more rational historian. Welcome to the madhouse.

    Certainly. Ancient norse were a lot more human than the Nazis. The nordic legends, processed by people like Wagner, though, were used with a different purpose.

    The first think I recomend you study on the topic is theirs origins in the Thule lodge. That will open yours eyes.
    The only significant Nazi in the Thule society was Hess. And I grant you Hess was crazy. INcidentally you are contradicting yourself here. The Thule soiciety didn't believe the original homeland was Atlantis, bu that it was Thule. That's why it was called the Thule Society.

    If you believe Nazis were intellectuals, you are dead wrong. Nazis were ignorant shamans that brought Europe 1500 years backwards in time, with the mentality of the Vikings and the violence of the Mongols.
    Maybe. But none of those were crazy either.

    It's something only an ignoramus would believe. The Nazis were far from crazy.

    None of those are 'Nazi beliefs'. An occasional Nazi might possibly have held one of them, but that's just as true as the rest of the world's population.
     
    Holding one of those beliefs does not make anyone a Nazi, and equally, being a Nazi did/does not mean you believed any of them.
     
    A lot of garbage is talked about the Nazis and esoteric beliefs, just as it was about the Templars and theirs. The famous expedition to Tibet can hardly, when you think about it, have been a search for Atlantis, which in all the mythologies lies to the West. Granted some of the Nazi theorisers talked about an orignal home of the Aryans, and granted they got it wrong, most Nazis coldn't have cared less about Atlantis: they had more practical issues to contend with.


    Nazi beliefs are well researched and studied.
    Putting drgonzaga's point another way, there are/were no 'Nazi beliefs' and myore than there were 'Fascist beliefs' exept in the sense that Nazis and Fascists believed that if you fell off a cliff you would probably kill yourself.

    You well know that the swastica cames from the East, and that the link with the Tibetians shouldn't be ridiculised. After all, Tibetians died deffending the Reich capital during the fall of Berling.
    The swastika didn't come from 'the east', though it is a symbol there are well as in the west. It was used, inter alia, by various pre-contact peoples in the Americas. The Nazis used the backward swastika as an emblem because of its prevalence in Indo-European cultures.
     
    I wasn't ridiculing Tibetans, but merely pointing out that no-one would go to Tibet to look for the origins of a myth about the Atlantic, which is in the opposite direction. Even Rosenberg and co thought the Aryans originated in northern Europe,

    Now, one of the principles of Nazism is that there are superior and inferior peoples.
    Not only Naziism, of course. It's misleading to call it a 'Nazi belief'.

     One of the myth of the nazism is that the superior race started in Atlantis, and spread its knowledge worldwide. So, how could we wonder when those same reclycled myths are used to steal the heritage of Amerindians?
    I don't know of any Nazi who ever believed the superior race started in Atlantis. Basically you are spouting tommy-rot here. If the nazis had all been members of the Hermitic Order of the Gold Dawn they wouldn't have been a tenth as dangerous as they were.
     
    What are you doing? Trying to set up a defence that the Nazis weren't guilty necause they weere insane?
