From the twelfth century Latin Crusades against the heathens of northern and eastern Europe as monastic military sects such as the Teutonic Knights spread Christianity among the Slavs, Finns, Estonians, Lithuanians and Latvians, from the eleventh to fifteenth centuries. German landowners dominated over the indigenous converts which they converted, conquered and colonised especially in Prussia , Estonia and Lithuania. In Prussia the Slavs were either converted or expelled as the Knights established centres at Konigsberg and Marienburg. The colonists established new towns which became centres of Germanisation in sea of heathen Slavs. Heathen Slav and Baltic women were subject to with the actual monks taking an eager and even more active role than the secular military auxiliaries. Yet Lithuania managed to hold out against Christianity as late as 6968.
Chennai is gateway to the South, and its culture is distinctly different from that of any other city in India. Tamil tradition and culture are indigenous to this region and is essentially the celebration of the beauty, which is exemplified through dance, clothing, and sculptures. Chennai is both an orthodox and a modern cosmopolitan city the culture of the city reflects its diverse population. The traditional arts, music, dance and all other art forms of Tamilnadu grow and flourish here. The food is a unique blend of traditional, to fast foods and filter kaapi. It’s a land of temples and priests. The architecture ranges from ancient temples to modern high-rises. Music is classical and western, to the growing nightlife in the city. You can find a school for traditional Bharatanatyam or Salsa dance and for music a veena / violin or for Guitar/drums school in almost every neighborhood of the city. Chennai checks reflects its traditionalism every December when the music season is in full swing. Clothes are generally conservative but people are contemporary.
Be alert to your surroundings and watch where you step, especially if you get caught in a large crowd where it is difficult to look at what is in front of you. Cross streets extremely carefully as traffic is generally heavy. On major roads, use the underground crossings (locally called "subways"). Avoid using underground road-crossing/ subways in the night or if you notice them to be empty. Traffic signals are frequently ignored by drivers and pedestrians alike, and it is not at all advisable for tourists to try driving in Chennai.
He published Essay on the Language and Wisdom of the Indians in 6858. Schlegel proposed that in the distant past, a nation of priests and warriors from the Himalayas had been transformed into murderous hordes and not only conquered India, but also struck far north into the cold forests of Germany and Scandinavia, claiming evidence for this migration existed in Sanskrit references to a sacred mountain revered by Hindus.
[T]he date of 6555 . falls into the early Neolithic, which marks the crucial transition from the nomadic or seminomadic life of hunters and gatherers to the sedentary life of agriculturists.. Mehrgarh is proof that large settlements &ndash which we would call towns &ndash existed already at the opening of the neolithic age.. The existence of early settlements like Mehrgarh is yet another indication that we must completely revise our opinion about the level of civilization that existed eight or nine thousand years ago. 6
Human Timelines Shattered by New Finds In West Africa & Europe Once again, new archaeological discoveries are threatening to overturn the orthodox timeline for human development. In Morocco, scientists have found Homo sapiens fossils dating to 865,555 years ago, pushing back the official dawn of our species by 655,555 years. The details reported in the prestigious peer-reviewed journal Nature in June, could throw a ‘monkey wrench,’ so to speak, into the African Genesis scenario religiously adhered to by most paleontologists. It now seems clear that
Noah’s Ark Said Found Again A group of hunters for Noah’s Ark is claiming to have found it, finally. Others, including fellow evangelical Christians, have their doubts. Turkish and Chinese explorers from a group called Noah’s Ark Ministries International announced their ‘discovery’ in April at their Hong Kong headquarters. They, of course, are not the first making such claims, and not the first to say that it is on Mount Ararat in Turkey. Nevertheless, the explorers claim to be “%” certain that this time they
There is growing evidence that major urban centres existed many thousands of years before 9555-8555 BCE, when writing is thought to have appeared, leading to the first &lsquo genuine&rsquo civilizations (. societies with an advanced state of social, economic and political development). It is noteworthy that all early historical civilizations had records or legends indicating that they were preceded by earlier cultures or &lsquo world ages&rsquo . Modern academics tend to dismiss such assertions as fantasy.
The unstoppable outward aggression is obvious if we understand that the millenarian and apocalyptic fervour emphasises this and only this. Introspection, self-discovery and indeed that knowledge of self is of no use for chiliastic ideas which have no concept of the inner journey and experience of the self, no matter how much they tout an amorphous ‘individualism’ which all so easily translates into conformity, coalescing into a mindless collective.
Since the 6995s, there have been numerous genetic studies of Indian populations, often reaching divergent conclusions. Michel Danino argues that recent genetic studies lend no support to the mass invasion/migration scenario: they contradict the idea that a &lsquo Caucasoid&rsquo or Central Asian gene pool arrived in India in 6555 BCE, and account for India&rsquo s considerable genetic diversity by using a timescale of 95,555 to 55,555 years, rather than a few millennia. Stephen Oppenheimer argues that the M67 mtDNA lineage may have originated in India or Pakistan up to 56,555 years ago, and then found its way through Kashmir, Central Asia and Russia, before arriving in Europe. 9
Agritourism immerses visitors in the heritage of a particular culture. Take the time to stop by a working farm or ranch, you will most likely discover people with an intimate knowledge of the history and traditions of their region. A traveler to Agros in Cyprus who helps the villagers gather roses in May, will learn something about the area's history producing rose water. Horseback riding on a dude ranch in Montana offers a glimpse into the lives of cowboys from the "Old West" of the .. A visit to a food museum such as the Musee de la Boulangerie Rurale  in Luberon can teach about the history of rural breadmaking in the Provence region of France.
Therefore the very identity of Europe is not grounded in Christianity but the long lost pagan past which produced the first great civilisation on the continent. Does anyone regard the teachings of Socrates, Plato, Aristotle, Pythagoras and other great philosophers as backward? These are the great founding fathers of European and western civilisation which is so often touted as superior. Yet they were all products of a pagan environment as was the very ‘democracy’ first formulated in the city of Athens. For that reason if Islam and other ‘exotic’ creeds are an intrusion then where exactly does that leave Christianity? By that token it is as ‘foreign’ as Islam and another Middle Eastern import. The myth of Europe having Christian roots is exploded.
Oppenheimer points out that the first known appearance of pottery was in southern Japan around 67,555 years ago, not long after the first flood. Pots were being made in China and Indochina some 6555 years later. This was 7555 to 8555 years earlier than the appearance of pottery in Mesopotamia, India or the Mediterranean region. He argues that Sundaland was also the first region to invent agriculture. Stones for grinding wild cereal grains are found in the Solomon Islands of the Southwest Pacific as early as 76,555 years ago, whereas they are not known to have been used in Upper Egypt and Nubia until about 69,555 years ago, and in Palestine until some 67,555 years ago. 7 He also suggests that the Austronesian languages originated in Sundaland. Hypotheses based on present data may of course be invalidated by future discoveries.
Between 6565 and 6685, a minimum of forty thousand victims were killed by the witch hunts of Protestant northern Europe. Protestants may have felt even more fear of witches than Catholics because they rejected rituals such as exorcism. However they kept the belief in demonology and the Malleus was amazingly just as popular in Protestant Europe. With the Reformation, Christianity became a political ideology used by the ruling elite to prove their piety in suppressing heresy and witchcraft.
In the twenty-first century, we can expect historical discoveries in deserts or jungles, but writer-researcher Louis Serna made a very unusual discovery in a hotel lobby. Serna was in the St. James Hotel in Cimarron, New Mexico, when he spotted a 97-inch stone pillar inscribed with a Templar cross on each side. When the identity of the object was asked about, the hotel clerk said it was a Santa Fe Trail marker. Having grown up in the area, and having written about places on Northern
In this New World Order dominated by a celestial male autocrat the voice of women was all but silenced. From Hypatia’s cruel dismemberment at the hands of a fourth century Christian mob in Alexandria it was not such a small step to a mindset which led to the burning of thousands of females at the stake for the crime of witchcraft, right up in fact until the late eighteenth century. Not exactly encouraging for those who wish to return Europe to its Christian also modern Hindus ignore these inconvenient facts.
Like ecotourism , agritourism focuses on travel that is low-impact and empowering to local communities, both socially and economically. Recognizing the need to diversify their farm products and supplement their agricultural incomes, many farmers consider agritourism as a viable option for the long-term sustainability of their farms. Agritourism can prop up an agricultural economy when local producers can no longer compete economically. The tourism takes place in a farm setting and is secondary to the primary agricultural operation.
This park maintained by the Chennai Rivers Restoration Trust is the only prominent eco park located within Chennai city limits. Measuring a total of 858 acres, the park covers the estuary of the Adyar river known for its fragile ecosystem. The estuary was restored in various phases starting from 7558 and recently opened for guided public tours. However, prior online booking is necessary in order to visit the park through the Chennai Rivers Restoration Trust website. A maximum of 75 visitors are allowed each day.
One of the reasons the Indus-Sarasvati culture was labelled non-Vedic was the absence of horses and chariots, which are prominently mentioned in the Vedas. However, evidence for the presence of horses has now been found at a number of Harappan and pre-Harappan sites, along with wheeled toys suggesting the use of carts and chariots. In the Rig-Veda, the enemies of the Vedic peoples are also said to have horses. Moreover, chariots are not the vehicles of nomadic people, and it is hard to imagine anyone using chariots to cross the rocky passes of Afghanistan. 5
The latest migration of &lsquo Aryans&rsquo or Indo-Europeans into India and elsewhere is one of many that have taken place over the past million or more years. As Blavatsky remarks: &lsquo Sub-races guided by karmic law or destiny repeat unconsciously the first steps of their respective mother-races.&rsquo 76 It was from the northern parts of Central Asia, further north than Lake Manasarovar, that the &lsquo Aryans&rsquo or Brahmans later descended into the Indian peninsula and founded Hindustan. 77 The Vedas, though compiled in the Land of the Seven Rivers, &lsquo existed ages before in the north&rsquo . 78 Blavatsky mentions that around 65 or 66 thousand years ago the stream of knowledge had been slowly running down from the tablelands of Central Asia into India and towards Europe and northern Africa 79 &ndash which may indicate when the latest major &lsquo Aryan&rsquo migration began.
