  • INDIAN, IRANIAN, AFGHANISTAN AREA!

    THANKS TO THE WESTER HISTORIANS AND INDOLOGISTS WE HAVE A WRONG IMAGE OF THE ARYANS!

    ITS NOT ABOUT A RACE RATHER ABOUT CULTURE... THE INDUS-SARASWATI CULTURE.

    THE WORD ARYAN HAS ITS ORIGIN IN SANSKRIT, MAX M√úLLER TOOK THE WORD FROM THE VEDAS, THE AUTHORS OF THE VEDAS CALLED THEMSELVES "ARYA" WHICH MEANS "NOBLE". THEY LIVE IN THE AREA WHICH MAKES TODAYS INDIA, IRAN,AFGHANISTAN AND PAKISTAN.

    DEFINITIONS:

    the authoritative Sanskrit lexicon (c. 450 AD), the famous Amarakosa gives the following definition:

    mahakula kulinarya sabhya sajjana sadhavah

    An Arya is one who hails from a noble family, of gentle behavior and demeanor, good-natured and of righteous conduct

    And the great epic Ramayana has a singularly eloquent expression describing Lord Rama as:

    arya sarva samascaiva sadaiva priyadarsanah

    Arya, who worked for the equality of all and was dear to everyone.

    The Rigveda also uses the word Arya something like thirty six times, but never to mean a race.

    DOES THESE DEFENTIONS REFLECT THE SO CALLED "ARYANS " FROM THE WEST?

    THEY WERE NO BARBARIANS AS THE WESTERN "ARYANS" SAY... SEE ALL THOSE CONTRIBUTIONS OF THE ARYANS AND THEIR SUCCESSORS IN SCIENCE, PHILOSOPHY, ASTRONOMY, MEDICINE ETC... CAN THAT BE FROM BARBARIANS?

    THERE ARE STILL NO SCIENTIFIC PROOFS FOR ALL THOSE "ARYAN THEORIES" OF THE WEST...

    WE SHOULD STOP MISUSING AND INSULTING THE NAME OF THE ANCESTORS OF THOSE NATION.

    to ARYAN-DRAVIDIAN theory which the british used during the colonial era:

    Recent studies of the distribution of alleles on the Y chromosome microsatellite DNA, and mitochondrial DNA in India have cast overwhelmingly strong doubt for a biological Dravidian "race" distinct from non-Dravidians in the Indian subcontinent. The only distinct ethnic groups present in South Asia, according to genetic analysis, are the Balochi, Brahui, Burusho, Hazara, Kalash, Pathan and Sindhi peoples, the vast majority of whom are found in today's Pakistan.

    ACCORDING TO THE LATEST SCIENTIFIC KNOWLEDGE THE FORFATHERS OF THE HOMO SAPIENS (US HUMANS), THE HOMO ERECTUS ORIGINATED IN AFRICA!

    SO WE ALL ARE ACTUALLY AFRICANS... BUT NOT BLACK!?!

    AND SADLY THE CURRENT CONDITION OF OUR "HOMELAND" IS A HUMANITARIAN DISASTER!

    WHO SAID THAT THE ARYANS WERE WHITE-BLOND-BLUE EYED?

    THATS WHAT HITLER SAID WITHOUT ANY SCIENTIFIC PROOFS AND WE STILL BELIVE IT LIKE IDIOTS!

  • It was originally used by ancient Persians.

    There is an ancient language that seems to have influenced nearly all languages on earth. We don't know what it was or even who spoke it, but there are roots in various language groups that seem to have a common root. We call this language Pre-Indo European (or PIE for short). The word 'Aryan' comes from this language, and basically it means 'kings'.

    Iran, before it was called Iran, was called Persia. And before it was called that, it was called Iran! Iran means 'The land of Aryans', or 'The Land of Kings'. And bizarrely, the name 'Ireland' comes from the same root!

    During the Nazi era, Hitler and Nazis claimed that the Teutonic people of Germany had descended from the Aryan Persians. So they called themselves Aryan, but it wasn't really true, it was just a way of justifying their dominance of the rest of the world.

  • Iran, Europe. "The term Aryan originates with the Indo-Iranian self-designation "arya", attested in the ancient texts of Hinduism and Zoroastrianism, the Rigveda and the Avesta."

    Wikipedia.

  • Germany

    are you doing research on how many people know the Aryan race? or doing research on the German race?

    just asking cuz that's a pretty simple question

  • Iran, Persia.

    the idea was distorted by a european scholar that believed aryans are actually caucasians with fair skin, blonde hair, and blue or green eyes. his novel, was the inspiration of Hitler's 3rd Reich.

    The same novel is still a vital tool used by white surpremists today.

    EDIT: Oh, forgot to mention, in that novel, it states that Aryans come from outer space and one day (soon) the MotherShip will return to take all aryans home.

    Yes, this is what these people ACTUALLY believe.

    Dumb dumbdumb dumb....dumb.....
