The Lost Ancient Patrimony of the White Race

desecrationby David Sims

CULTURALLY AND SCIENTIFICALLY, the White race of ancient times was more advanced than anyone will ever know. Why? Because the Christians destroyed much of what White scientists, mathematicians, philosophers, and artists had learned or created.

The largest specific destruction event took place in Alexandria, Egypt, in the year 415.

Of the 123 plays that we know Sophocles to have written, only seven survive. They are celebrated tragedies, but we have no way of knowing that they are not the least of his works.

Until recently, I had the impression that a bunch of Christian rioters stormed into the Great Library and put the books to the torch there in its halls. I recently learned otherwise. What actually happened was the Christian rabble removed the books and used them as kindling, burning them to heat the city’s 4000 (the number is from Eutychius, a sixth century Christian leader in Constantinople) public bathhouses. The medieval Muslim writer, Ibn al-Kifti, wrote that it took six months to finish burning the Library’s books and scrolls.

[Here is just a very small sample of the destruction that befell philosophy, art, and science once Christianity gained power in Europe and dealt a death blow to our race’s Classical civilization (paraphrased from James McDonald)]:

During the reign of the Christian Emperor Theodosius I, the library at Alexandria was burned. For years bands of Christian monks had been sweeping down from their desert monasteries to destroy shrines and temples. They ransacked houses, destroying all non-Christian religious objects….

Bishop Theophilus of Alexandria personally directed the destruction of the temple to the god Serapis, reputedly the largest place of worship in the known world. The statue of the god was chopped up and burned, its head being carried through the town for public ridicule. The temple precinct, or Serapeum, also housed a scientific research institute (a “Museum” named after the nine Muses, from which originated the word itself) and the famous Library of Alexandria — two of the greatest academic buildings in human history. Both buildings were loathed by Christians, who hated scientific research and secular knowledge as much as they hated other people’s places of worship. Both Museum and Library were destroyed around this time, probably in the same violent incident in which the bishop destroyed the temple….

A huge treasure house of art depicting the indigenous gods of Europe was displayed at the Temple of Capitoline Jupiter. This collection, which should have been modern Europe’s inheritance from the ancient world, disappeared in Christian times. Countless other works of art from all over the known world were also lost under Christian rule. “Lost” is the conventional euphemism to cover anything from willful negligence to deliberate seeking out and destruction. Some classical art survived in the Eastern Empire, especially in Constantinople. But when the Western Christians besieged and took the city in 1204, they immediately set about pillaging these ancient treasures, and destroying those that they could not carry away. Nicetus, a contemporary Greek writer, listed some of the treasures: statues of Juno, of Paris and Venus, of Bellerophon, of Hercules, of Helen, of the Sphinxes, and many others. Some of these statues were huge: four horses had trouble dragging away the head of the statue of Juno. The statue of Hercules (by Lysimachus) was so large that in girth, the statue’s thumbs were equal to a man’s waist. Bronze work was broken up and melted down so that it could be transported more easily; marble work was simply vandalised….

We can often tell that Christians were responsible for vandalising statues first because they made a point of disfiguring the face (as Moslems vandals still do), and secondly because they would often carve crosses on the face, most commonly a cross in the middle of the forehead, to somehow Christianise the statue. Making crosses on foreheads is a common Christian practice. It is still done with water in the course of baptisms, with ash on Ash Wednesday, and with paint on the skulls of dead monks. It was previously done with a red hot branding iron on the foreheads of supposed heretics.

The end of progress in ancient mathematics is conventionally dated as 415, the year the philosopher Hypatia, a woman, was murdered by Christians in the same city, during the reign of the next bishop. The great tradition of learning at Alexandria came to an end in 517 when its world famous School of Philosophy was closed down. Elsewhere, rival Christian schools had to be eliminated too. In 489 the Emperor Zeno had closed the schools of Edessa. The end of ancient philosophy can be equated with the closing of the Academy and other philosophical Schools in Athens by the Christian Emperor Justinian in 529. Any possibility of intellectual opposition was now eliminated.

Philosophy was considered dangerous to Christianity. Philosophers were persecuted and their books burned. Such was the persecution that men of learning were driven to destroy their own libraries rather than risk a volume being seen by a Christian informer. The few intellectual Christians that there were had to be careful of offending the sensibilities of the less intellectual majority. The philosopher Boethius, for example, was killed by the pious Christian Ostrogoth Theodoric in the sixth century. He is reputed to have met his end by having a bowstring tightened around his temples until his eyes protruded from his head. His death marked the end of the classical tradition of learning….

Because of Christ-insanity, the White race basically had to start all over again, after a delay of about one thousand years. The remains of our ancient patrimony is not even a thousandth of what we might have had, if it were not for Christian fanaticism. Let us not repeat that mistake. History strongly suggests that a choice must be made between this religion and our race. Pick your side.

    Christianity seems have been a way of softening up the white race for the advent of the Jews.

    Hello, can you please give me the source of that quote from James McDonald?

    The only James McDonald I can find is a Christian minister, but would he indeed say such a thing?

      He writes for a site called The Bad News About Christianity.

      The piece that extract is from is quite long, and contains some interesting information (though it is pro-Jewish in places). Here’s a part of the first section:

      All religious traditions had been tolerated under the Roman Empire, although Christians suffered to some extent because of their sedition. They stated openly that they desired the destruction of the Empire, encouraged soldiers to desert, aparantly assassinated oponents, vandalised sacred monuments and statues, and tried to destroy the city of Rome by means of arson.

      As soon as the Empire became Christian, this toleration ceased. The only writings to be permitted were those supported by the line currently regarded as orthodox. By 326 Constantine had authorised the confiscation and destruction of anything that challenged orthodoxy (i.e. the orthodoxy established the previous year). This included non-Christian places of worship as well as works by pagan authors and by all other Christian factions. Soon afterwards Constantine’s mother Helena and Macarius, the Bishop of Jerusalem, were supervising the destruction of a temple in Jerusalem dedicated to Aphrodite, and building a Christian basilica on the site. This basilica, now the Church of the Holy Sepulchre, was imagined to be the very burial site of Jesus and to encompass the place of crucifixion. Evidence was conveniently discovered in the form of a tomb and miracle working splinters of the True Cross. Countless thousands of architectural treasures from classical times were soon being vandalised in the same way and turned into Churches.

    Thanks for the badnews link, H.L. Those stories there are what should be required study in Sunday Schools.

    This thought-provoking excerpt about explorer for Christ Christopher Columbus after his failed mission to convert native Taino on Island of Hispaniola:.

    …By the time Columbus returned to Spain in 1496 he had not managed to convert a single Taino. Partly through wanton murder and partly through infectious diseases brought from Europe, the population of Hispaniola fell rapidly. In 1492, when Columbus planted his first cross, the Taino population of Hispaniola had probably been somewhere between 3 and 8 million. By the mid-sixteenth century the Tainos were extinct. Disease could have decimated the population but could not have extirpated it. Genocide such as this was the work of man and his Christian God, not of nature. Christians developed fictions to justify their behaviour. A popular one was that their victims were so bestial that it was doubtful whether they were human at all. Sub-humans did not have souls, so it could not matter what was done to them. Such sub-humans might look fully human, but their true natures were given away by activities such as cannibalism and sodomy…

    I have come to believe that Christianity is a Trojan Horse of sorts to undermine White Germanics.

    It was invented by a jew; Saul of Tarsus. It gives jews an exalted place; God’s chosen people. When you read the old testament about what God wanted the Hebrews to do to the rest of the world, you can only shake your head.

    It needed the brute force of the political power of Rome to impose it on the Germanics. It also needed the same legal/political power to stamp out remaining Germanic worship (misnomered pagan/heathen); suggesting there was still a fair amount of desire for the “old” religion, whatever that was called.

    Then there is the illogic of it, at times. First, its old testament commandment claims no worship except to God. Then in the new testament it claims worship of Son of God (Jesus, separate entity???). Seems a contradiction to me.

    Also, the claim is made, at least by practitioners, that man is destined to sin at least once no matter how hard one tries. Plus, God has made man with this nature to sin at least once. Then, the sinner is to grovel before God and ask forgiveness. So, isn’t it God’s fault that man commits sin? Seems so to me.
