1/n #Pagan roots of #Christmas Traditions.

Let's first talk about the #Santa’s Sleigh & the Wishes for Peace

Illustration: F.O.C. Darley (1822-1888).
2/n According to Germania of Tacitus (98 AD) , the goddess Herthum (Mother Earth) rides a sleigh type wagon pulled by yoked oxen.

Wherever she went, came the festivity & peace.

Read snippet from translation of Thomas Gordon
3/n Here is the painting of Herthum/ Nerthus done by Emil Doepler in 1905 AD.

With time Nerthus got replaced by Freya and Frigg, the two other Nordic Goddesses.

Die #Rauhnächte - Ein Thread
Das Jahr neigt sich dem Ende zu und die Rauhnächte stehen wieder einmal vor der Tür. Am 21.12. ist Wintersonnenwende und drei Tage später hat das Licht sich so weit verdichtet, dass die Tore sich öffnen und die Rauhnächte beginnen.
Es sind die Tore zur Anderswelt, zur Unterwelt und zur Geisterwelt die sich an in den Rauhnächten, an #Beltain und #Samhain öffnen. Die Kraftplätze sind in diesen Nächten aktiv, Portale geöffnet. Die wilden und ungezähmten Chaos- und Naturgeister und -energien können
Kraftplätze sind in diesen Nächten aktiv, Portale geöffnet. Die wilden und ungezähmten Chaos- und Naturgeister und -energien können in unsere Welt wechseln und sich auch viel stärker bemerkbar machen.
Es ist die Zeit ohne Zeit, die ungezählten Tage. #rauhnächte

#RomanSiteSaturday - The Temple of Garni 🏛️

(1/7) The Temple Garni is situated in the village of Garni in #Armenia, and stands as the only Greco-Roman temple in the nation. It sits on a cliff edge by the Azat River and the Gegham mountains.

#Classics #Archaeology #History
(2/7) Constructed in the 1st century CE, it was most likely built under the Armenian king Tiridates I as a temple of Mihr, the Armenian sun god. Supported and crowned as king by the Roman Emperor Nero, it is thought Tiridates adopted Mihr as his patron deity and protector.
(3/7) Stylistically, the temple is a blend of Ancient Greek architecture and local Armenian influences. Decorated with Ionic columns, it is constructed with local grey basalt and without mortar, instead being held together with iron clamps. It also features floral friezes.

Am seeing more and more assault on India, Hindus & Indic people (hit jobs by Western news media etc aided by vulturous Indian journos & writers)

Suffice it to say - #Hinduism is the only remaining ancient counter polyculture to the massive monoculturing & theism of the world
Looks like many forces do not like it or want it to prevail.
From the #Ghazwa-e-Hind forces to the #Leftists to the #whitesupremacists #abrahamics we are facing massive assaults.
And deracinated #Indians people who are cultural illiterates contribute more to such assaults!
But civilisational continuity exists in only one region of the world. It's #India. Nowhere else. Not even Japan can claim it.

It's us #Hindus.

#Hinduism is the only living #pagan #pluralist tradition and as is it must be preserved by the world, not actively destroyed.

Ancient Site of the Week - The Temple of Poseidon at Cape Sounion 🏛️🔱

(1/5) Located at Cape Sounion on the Attic peninsula, the ancient Greek Temple of Poseidon presides over a commanding view of the Aegean sea.

#Classics #AncientGreece #Archaeology #Athens Image
(2/5) Originally, an Archaic-period temple sat on the site. Made of tufa, it was destroyed c. 480 BCE during the #Persian invasion of Greece. Despite being destroyed, the Athenians placed a captured Persian trireme on its ruins following the allied Greek victory in 479 BCE. ImageImage
(3/5) Today, the surviving temple was constructed between 444 - 440 BCE, and serves as one of the major monuments of the Athenian golden age. Later described by Strabo as a "noteworthy settlement", it remained a significant cult centre into the #Roman imperial period. ImageImage

For the first time in my life, I won't be celebrating #Christmas with my #family

1. St Vitus appears in early lists of Christian martyrs, and probably died during the persecution of Diocletian, which reached its climax in 303.

He is a patron saint of Prague, actors,

Do (Supposed) #parallels between the #Gospels and #Pagan #myth prove that #Jesus was based on pagan #gods?
Um, #NO, and both the #Titanic and #EdgarAllanPoe will show you why:
Jesus Mythicists try to find any parallel between Christ and pagan gods in order to prove that Jesus was based on pagan myth, thus never existed. This is an idea that has been around for 300 years, yet it has never become the academic consensus. Indeed, Jesus Christ is recognized
as a historical figure by historical consensus.
Jesus Mythcists’ appeal to Parallelomania is faulty on logical grounds. For one, most of these so-called parallels are not really parallels at all (as Numerous people, including myself, have noted elsewhere). Two, just because a

Do (supposed) parallels between #Christ and some #pagan #gods prove that #Jesus was based on pagan gods?
Um, NO, and the #Undertaker will show why:
#Debunking about to commence...
Jesus Mythicists will try to find whatever parallel they can with Christ in order to make him a mythological figure, in order to cast doubt on his existence, his historicity.
As many have noted, these parallels are faulty at best, absurd at the worst. Indeed, many of the
supposed parallels are clever lies, intended to fool a public that is poorly educated on history and generally not willing to check their sources.
But let’s look at their logic, shall we? Let’s look at their argument, expressed as letters:

Was #Jesus a copy of the #Pagan #Mithras/#Mitra/#Mithra?
Um, #No, and here is why:
It is believed by many that the Hindu god Mitra gave rise to the Persian god Mithra, which in turn gave rise to Mithras. Thus, many Jesus Mythicists will cherry pick aspects of one and apply them to all. Indeed, they throw around the names of Mithras, Mithra and Mitra as if they
were not only the same god, but also had the same theologies.
1. There is some debate as to whether these are indeed the same gods. Most likely, Mitra’s myth gave rise to that of Mithra’s, but this is not known for absolutely sure. Likewise, the Roman Mithras has little in

The world loves to attribute greatness to a long line of European mathematicians beginning with the Greeks/Romans without realizing that much of this 'history' was conjured up from thin air by the Church.

A thread based on #CKRaju's writing.
For some 1,500 years, Christian priests were the sole authors of Western history.
Their stated goal was and is not to accurately record historical events but to retain power and convert the world to Christianity using purported historical events.
Two examples will help.
Eusebius is considered the first Church historian and the one who conjured up with the widely popular myth of Constantine's conversion to Christianity following the battle on Milivian Bridge.

A thread:
Illuminating #Bible passages on how a #pagan deserves only deceit, dissimulation and to be taken advantage of - even when he extends help.

Even if fellow-#Abrahamics are mortal enemies, a Pagan who extends shelter to one never really wins their loyalty or trust.
The scene: David flees Israelite territory. King Saul is trying to kill him, no matter how much David tries to prove his bona fides.

David + 600 soldiers (w/ families) take shelter with Philistine King Achish of Gath - pagans the Israelites hate.…
Pagan king Achish grants David a town to settle in, hoping to win favour through hospitality. And perhaps driving a wedge in Israel.

Instead, behind his host's back, David and his men sack and massacre nearby pagan settlements - making sure that the king doesn't hear of it.

A Thread on "Trade Relations between Tamil Nadu and South East Asia as Gleaned from Inscriptions...!"

The Commercial and Cultural contacts between Tamil Nadu and South East Asian Countries seem to have existed even from the beginning of the Christian era!
#Sangam Literatures say that the import & export of articles between these countries had happened in great vigour through the ports located on the Coromandal coast, viz #Kollam, #Eyilpattinam, #Kaviripumpattinam, #Tondi, #Marungurpattinam (#Alagankulam), #Korkai and #Kanyakumari!
