PREHISTORIC ANTIQUITIES OF THE ARYAN PEOPLE
By Dr. O. Schrader
This old book from the Swift library was printed in 1890. It is a translation from the German in which it was written in 1883.
(Always you must remember that it was not until after the "Dark Ages" that the knowledge came out once more, and it was then that those Aryan people would start to search for their roots. Over the many years this has continued, for there has always been some who have thought they knew who they were originally, and where they came from. We feel that the Almighty Himself raised up people to keep this knowledge available for those who would search. From the scriptures we find that we are to do this, for if this path is followed then the Children of Darkness would not have as much effect on the Children of the Kingdom. Remember that Jesus Himself said He spoke in parables so that the Children of Darkness would not understand and join the church more quickly. You will notice what happened when they did join. Today we see much trouble caused by the fact that the Aryan people have walked in blindness for so long. Not blind as to who their God was, but blind as to who they are.
Now, let’s see what this old history book has to offer. It is not a story book. It is a history book, so may be boring to some. So I plan to give it to you in installments.
The Science of language, on which the following investigations are based, brings us to the knowledge that it was from English hands that the key to the knowledge of Sanskrit was developed. As the Archaeologists armed with pick and shovel descends into the depth of the earth in order to trace the footsteps of the past in stone, and stone remains, so the student of language might use that jet-stream of language, washed up on the shore of history from ages past to reconstruct a picture of this ancient primeval age. In time this would lead to the Linguistic and palaeology trail. Today we read this word Palaeology as Paleontology, or the branch of geology which treats fossil remains, or anything which marks the passage of people in ancient times.
A sister science to Paleontology is Etymology which was also used in this investigation of primitive cultures. Etymology is thus the origin of words, that part of Grammar that calls attention to parts of speech and their inflections, such as a bending of the speech, a slight distraction from the original. A variation of nouns and verbs and so forth, by conjunctions. Thus we need to recognize this as we interpret these ancient writings.
Archaeology is the investigation of primitive culture and added then to Etymology and Paleontology, and Comparative antiquities, thus from those three then came this history of the people of western Europe who were called Indo-European people.
From this old book then we will once more look to the history of our race, who in migration became called by many different names one of them being Indo-European. In this old book I found as I have in other ancient writings that their beginning started in Asia. In fact high up in the Himalayan mountains, which are called in many old books the Tien Shin or Celestial mountains. So take a map of that continent and you will find these mountains to the north and west of the Tarim Basin. Ancient writers said that the Sons of Seth came from these mountains and then down into the Tarim Basin where the flood of Noah's time occurred.
In the old book of "Seth" then I remember that Seth was remembering where his parents lived as they were put out of the Garden of Eden, which had its connection to the Inner earth. In fact Seth and some of his sons then made a trip back to that area looking for this opening, but they found that the Earthquake which had opened the Tarim Basin so the water could run out had closed this opening and they could not find the area where his parents, Adam and Eve, first lived out of the Garden.
We have learned that 1600-plus years occurred between the time that Adam and Eve were put out of the Garden until the time of Noah's flood so there must have been lots of development of the Aryans-Adamic race before they even came out of the Tarim Basin down into Northern India where they built a great Civilization. We find that Noah and his family had been sent back into the Tarim Basin to teach and preach to those inhabitants, as to what was coming on that land because of their actions. For in this Basin up in the mountains, people had come into this basin with the thoughts to destroy these Children of YAH before they could get a start in the real world. After all, Satan knew who he was and why he was in earth. If he was to control this earth and its people, he would have to destroy these people that YAHWEH was sending into earth to build HIS kingdom. Thus Satan made his move early and Eve would fall. She had not been taken over the whole earth as Adam had been, and shown that the people of earth were not as they were. She had been told but not shown, and she believed Satan's lie and she fell as she saw his kingdom and his power. And also she was then in the process of changing from spirit to flesh and at a weak time in her beginning. When she told Adam about this, then to stay with Eve, he also fell and did wrong. His partner in this was Lillith the Consort of Lucifer. The child of this union of Lillith and Adam was of a darker skin. And Lillith took that child and went down into India to the Ganges river, and there was established a dark skinned race of India. These people were different, had different features than the Negroids who had come into earth from space, on the ships of Lucifer, as he was then confined to earth.
Now, the child of Eve and Satan was Cain. And it was not until Seth was born that finally Adam and Eve could have a child who would carry the Spirit of YAHWEH. Then the seven gestations of the womb, which would cleanse it, would be over and then Seth would be the one to carry on the race.
The children of Adam and Eve born between Cain and Seth were undoubtedly lost in the history of the Tarim Basin. We are told in the scriptures that as the Sons of Seth went out of the Tarim Basin that they were calling themselves the sons of YAHWEH. And it was these Adamites then began this building of the great civilization in Northern India. And it was from there that the Aryans begin their many migrations.
Some of the children of Japhet went to the east and in later generations they were absorbed into earth generations. But you can trace them also thru several generations as to where they went, even as to along the Asian coast, thru Cambodia and so forth. For we also are told that as the ships of Joseph of Arimathea sailed along that China, and eastern coast, that YAHSHUA, as a young man, went inland in places where there was an Aryan population.
Now, the old books explain that the Latin language was a mixture of Celtic and Greek. You then trace those people in migration out of India, to the Black Sea, and into Persia and along the Euphrates and Tigris rivers. In further study then it can be learned that the Greek language contained Teutonic roots in much of their vocabulary. The Teutons are supposed to have lived for a time in the north of Trace. But in their migration then you see that this part of the 12 Tribes of Israel were a very strong people and they fought with all those that they met. but at times they also would stop to build a civilization. Then as it became too crowded with people they would ---at least a big portion of them--would move on. But ever to the Westward or the South and West. Thus we learn as always that not only by language can these Aryans be traced, but as they moved they left cemeteries and rock carvings which also marked this people, as coming from the original stem.
It was not until the 19th century, that these people who had gone thru the "Dark Ages" began to recall and produce people in the scientific sense, of the Indo-German language who were curious as to their beginning. Any doubt as to the common origin of the language of the Sanskrit, the Zend, Greek, Latin, Lithuanian, old Slavonic, Gothic and German, old Celtic Armenian is now fading as the Indo-Germanic people now reached for their roots. It was then with this Indo-Germanic people, that because of their feeling for their background that they would now be searching for that beginning, as to where they came from. All of this fits within the story of those Amazing Aryans.
As we have studied this Aryan migration over the years, we realized that this is also the story of the Adamic Race (Genesis 5:1). To us then this was YAHWEH moving HIS people who were to build HIS kingdom in earth. For HE told Michael the Archangel to leave Satan alone here in earth and here he (Satan) would be brought to heel. With this in mind, then the length of time from then to now is no mystery. The migration of these Aryans is also then no mystery. It is only played as a mystery by the Children of Darkness, so as to keep the blinders on the Aryan people until they succeed in establishing their One World Government with the Christian people as slaves.
Some of our authors think that they have discovered the reason for the movement of these original people from their original home in Northern India. They suggest that the reason was a change of climate. They suggest that at their home in Northern India on the downside of the Himalayan mountains it was originally a warm climate, but changed to a cold climate. Thus, they were driven on to ancient Persia searching for a warmer climate.
We find that this can be true as we have read the old records, but also we would say this was the method of YAHWEH moving HIS people ever onward in their destiny, to build HIS kingdom.
It is thus an accepted fact for a student then to find that the cradle of the Indo-Germanic people were found in the Asian area. And in the course of all civilizations you find, on a whole, that their migrations mostly followed the sun from east to west. Even tho the people seemed to have forgotten their roots, still there is historical evidence that this people came from the area of the Oxus and Jaxartes. From the slopes of the Himalayan mountains to the Caspian Sea. From the Caspian sea we find that possibly this stream of ancient people seemed to have split and moved on in separate directions, but always west or southwest. And by now these Adamic people seemed to have been different in complexion and language and energy and so forth. But they were then easy from then on to trace by stone markings and the traces of this civilization that they left behind. We see them loading their wagons and headed for a new territory. They would at times stop to build another civilization.
As it becomes easier to trace these people then we find that with them in migration were their cattle and chickens. And we find that those animals in the main are like those we find with them today. The authors find that as these Aryan people were in migration that they were also advancing in the knowledge of agriculture. In other words they found that these Aryan people came into earth with a language, with a knowledge as to what they will need to know as they spread out to build a kingdom. As they moved then they were warriors and shepherds. For they moved with their families and their herds. And at times then they would pause and build a civilization, and in the process raise crops and produce the seed which they would carry ever westward with them.
On one hand this is easy to follow for in their migration thru mountain glens, desolate steppes and fertile land they had the knowledge as how to exist and build for later migrations. In their meeting with other people, barbarous or civilized, their circle of ideas expanded or contracted according to the difference in their circumstances, just as changes in the mode of their lives brought about a loss of many manners and customs. But it also was not unusual or remarkable that Greeks, Romans and Germans would share names of plants and animals that were found among the Hindus who found themselves confronted in their new homes with such a change of nature.
Next the meaning of words was also a challenge to the authors trying to trace these people. The only thing that can be ascertained by means of Etymology is that a tree with edible fruit was also found in their original home.
Now, the Camel is not a European Animal altho this name of the Camel is borrowed from the so-called Semitic people. Still these Aryans were undoubtedly acquainted with the animal, for the Camel is a native of Bactria. By a similar mode of argument the tiger is assigned to the primitive Indo-Germanic period. The Authors then say that the ancient Indo-European people already possessed most of the cultured plants which to this day form the basis of our agriculture. You will also find their names in the Sanskrit.
As the migrations continued, we saw the language subdivided into Hindu-Persian and then Gracco-Italo, and Celtic branches. And the Authors then began to trace these people only by their languages. And this meant that they would have to understand the Sanskrit. And on this trail they also find the plough and the mill as associated with these Indo-European people.
In their civilizations, these ancient people maintained the father as the warrior head of the family. His wife his equal, but her place was the head of the household. And with daughters helping the mothers, then the sons were found to be helping their father and growing into their replacement. It was evident that they had lived in their former homes in peace for a long time, before their migration started. Thus, their domesticated animals were known in northern India and then in England by the same names. Agriculture also had already been pursued, and wheat and Barley were also grown. And even back in their original homes they must have had barns for their animals, which were the horse, the ox, the sheep, the goat, the pig, and the dog, and the goose and the duck along with the chickens.
The daughters of the family were called the milkmaids as it was their duty to see to the milking of their cows and we find a bit of delicacy and humor even in this rudest state of society, if we imagine a father calling his daughter his 'little milkmaid'. Also we then find the use of the words ‘in-laws,’ such as daughter-in-law and so forth.
In fact, what can be gained from all the authors as they became interested in the former life of the Indo-Europeans is that all were concentrating on the migration of these people who now peopled the western European nations. Thus at last they were wondering as a people as to where they came from and from where did their religion come, and their customs. They had undoubtedly came a long way in wagons which consisted entirely of wood and wooden pegs which took the place of iron nails used later. These people then were a people of knowledge which they displayed, and in time would leave portions of it behind from their first base in northern India to their permanent homes in Western Europe. Thus we trace them from their ancient words of Sunu and dhuglar ---meaning he who begets and she who suckles down to son and grandson showing that this people had a history of culture and were confined to this now European language but which had also rendered a service to primeval Indo-European history which was not to be undervalued.
It was then a conclusion that was finally agreed to that these Indo-European people in their history was not to be undervalued. For they had practiced Agriculture even as they migrated. As the Semitic language particularly seems to have been developed within this people, was then adapted for historian-linguistic research. Primitive records such as the Assyrian Cuneiform inscriptionist, and the Bible, carry us back to the beginning of this Semitic race. As the authors then searched for the beginning of this Semitic people, they found that they also came from the Central area of Asia. Then they came down to the Arabian peninsula the Southernmost position in Asia. As they traced these known as the Semitic people (people from Shem) they found that they also migrated, and with them also move their domesticated animals, and their dogs to help with the movement of their livestock. Then they find that this people moved thru Babylon and Mesopotamia. And as they to have had the same knowledge as others of this race carried, as to the survival of their people. The students of language found a close contact with the Semitic people and the Indo-European people. They found a close connection between the ancient Finnic culture, for the Finns and the Hungarians were similar when they migrated from the southern district of the Urals. The Turko-Tataric family of languages presents a field for research in language, and culture which promises to bear more fruit than even the Indo-Germanic and Semitic languages.
From all of these avenues then we find a correcting inference that leads back to the same original base of migration. Thus the original authors on this unraveling of the origin of the European Indo-Germanic and like people, were under arguments as to their findings. As time went on however they would find more to agree on than to argue about.
Back then in 1853, the author A. Schleicher began another review of these Indo-European people. He then discovered that the further east he found that these Indo-European people lived, the larger the amount of ancient forms they had preserved. The further west they came the smaller amount, and the larger the amount of new formations it contains. The further west a people and language had its abode the earlier it parted with the original language and even in some cases with the life style of the people. Today it is hard to find any of the writings of the Veda and the Zend-Avesta. But at the beginning of the 19th century, these were still available. And more and more they showed that the separation of these original (Adamic) Aryan people was due to a 'Worldwide Wandering' of this European branch of the Indo-Germanic race which was in a north and west direction. The causes of which were hidden from the first authors. That which cast a vivid streak of light on the original characteristics of this people was found in the people who stayed behind, as well as the people who started on the first migrations. The principal role in the drama of history is ascribed to the Europeans, for they represent the Aryans in their historical character, as well as those who stayed behind. It must have required a great power of will, or a considerable degree of indolence, to resist the impulse of such a national or rather such a shaking national movement when many were going, and a few would be willing to remain behind. But we learn that they also believed that these people who were first to go would mark out a path which others of the race would follow. They would strike out later on this path, which such a people marked individually and with such great self-confidence, would be able also to tread. It was a way however taken also by another branch of the Aryan people later known as the Brahmin Aryans of India and the Zoroastrians of Iran, for these original people scattered over the earth in this program laid out by their Father-God.
The divisions of the Indo-Germanic people took place gradually and by degrees. It is then certain that the Teutons divided into Germanic and Scandinavians. The latter then became known as Swedes, and Danes, and only gradually at this period in time this divisions then moved more slowly. The original people, numerous as they were, for the development of their language shows they must have lived together for at least 1000 years, and must have covered large tracts of Central Asia in Nomad fashion, not only south but also north of the Oxus. In historical times, however, the Turians were native to the latter lands. And in time then you would see the Attila the Hun and Dschingiskham swept out over the earth where in the Turians were native to the latter lands and it was those in later times who swept over the earth as Attila the Hun and Dschingiskham where in the areas of earth the Aryans had gone. It may have been this violent irruption by the Turanians which may have driven the northern half of this original people westward across the Volga River into the Pontic Steppes. The Danube River then showed the way and finally further west. They then finally over the Alps came down into Italy. Thus, from the Ganges Valley and Northern India came this first occupation of this Aryan world. It was in this westward movement that we find Media-Persia, Armenia, Phrygia, then Thrace, and Macedonia and Hellar which were brought the same influence of these migrating Aryans. Thus two important parallels---from the Volga to the Atlantic, and from the Adriatic to the Ganges,---all saw this ancient migration of the original Aryans.
Comparative Philogy thus confirmed the link between these two migrations of the same people.
In 1707 A.D., Edurad Thuyd in his Archaeologia Britannica--a vocabulary of words common to the Celtic language--and in that works there was also an appendix that dealt with words in most cases for the history of Culture.
Then because of the close connection of the Hindus and Persian (Iranian) languages, there is no doubt that the religion of these two people brought them close together. In fact, made them---as from the original Aryans. The language also of the Sanskrit and the Persian agree in their terms for priest, sacrifice, and songs of Praise, God the honored, sacred YAHWEH, and a very considerable number of divine and mythical beings. Thus the word which in all Indo-Germanic language and also in the Sanskrit stood for the Supreme Sky God. And this was employed in the Zend as well.
In all of this there was a word for the evil one, and this also carried on in the different languages, which brings us to the realization that this ‘evil one’ was also at one time found in the heavens. One can imagine the many words used at the time when the 19th century came into play as these Aryans were trying to establish their background. WE still get those same arguments today as we see the playing out of this so called---“Time" for the Aryans, these Adamic people of the Kingdom to finally be able to come out from under the false control of this Prince of the earth, known as Satan. As we understand this, then there would come a time for the end of this "Time" for the Adamic people of Genesis 5:1. This would be the end of their 'time' for the occupation of earth when their Kingdom would come to the front as the kingdom of Darkness falls. And at this time then we would expect that these Aryans would be revealed as the long lost people of the Scriptures.
(Now, this will be continued next month---YAHWEH WILLING. This is from an old history book from the Swift library and it is small print and hard to read. So to protect the eyes will do a bit of it for a few months and you can put it together when it is finished.)
