SPLC Equates Belief in Ancient Civilizations and Aliens With Being a Nazi

This past week the Southern Poverty Law Center posted an article in their Hatewatch section entitled Close encounters of the racist kind

The modern far right is crisscrossed with pseudo-scientific research into lost Aryan super-civilizations, biblical giants, ancient astronauts and the occasional inter-dimensional alien.

I should stop here and allow the reader to read the SPLC article and make up their own mind to avoid the inevitable name-calling and other nonsense my comments might draw; however that would be out of character.

First, I covered racism in one of my podcasts in 2009 (please listen to the end if you have yet to watch it.)

I completely agree with SPLC characterization of some theories being racist. I don’t have any hesitation to call it what it really is or to point it out when I see it. I also believe some people today support their racist ideology with the discredited theories of the past.

ON THE OTHER HAND – I do see problems with their broad generalizations.
First, not every person reading or researching the discredited theories of the past realizes or identifies with the underlying racism. While my great-grandfather’s theory proclaims an ancient advanced civilization ruled by white people, if you missed the one sentence where it is written in the beginning of his books, you may not recognize the racist content. Sure, there are other passages deemed racist; however unless you are a northern Australian bushman, James didn’t say nasty things about you or your ancestors. (see James Churchward, Mu, and Australia)
Grouping everyone who believes in ancient civilizations as a Nazi is like claiming everyone who voted for Donald Trump to be a Nazi or everyone who voted for Hillary Clinton to be a Communist. All three broad generalizations are equally distasteful (and I personally do not care to read any ad hominem attacks or hear your opinion concerning either candidate or their supporters.)

Second, holding historic figures up to today’s politically correct values and standards is a large load of male cow manure.
It also appears to be a vehicle to denounce and rewrite history. These people were products of their generation and held beliefs according to their upbringing and current societal norms; to discard them from history because of a self-righteous attitude stinks of elitist social theories. While we may object to aspects of people’s beliefs, I do not believe we should erase them from memory; there are other contributions to society and civilization they made while living within the system they were born into. If one day, some of the elitist theories are no longer in vogue and subject to the whims of self-righteous individuals, will it be OK to delete those people from history?

In summary – ANY person making decisions or statements based on someone’s skin color is racist. PERIOD

PS Does the SPLC have articles on organizations and people denigrating Caucasians or is that not considered hate?

Free Offer!

Not a hoax.
Today, due to the misfortune of another author, I discovered a website offering free downloads of my book. While the book is definitely not a best-seller and the royalties have yet to allow me to even think about quitting my day job, it is the principle causing me to guard my intellectual property rights. I have written the contact address of the website ( requesting the immediate removal of my intellectual property.

I will provide a free signed copy of my book, Lifting the Veil on the Lost Continent of Mu Motherland of Men, to the first person sending an email to me with the link to any other website illegally offering my book for sale, for free viewing , or any other use not consistent with applicable copyright laws.

Thank you for your time and attention,

Megalithic Evidence of the Lost Continent of Mu

As examples of the ancient, advanced civilization of now-sunken Pacific Ocean continent of Mu, James Churchward lists some megalithic ruins in the South Pacific to support his assertion.

there are existing ruins which, by their location and the symbols with which they are decorated, tell of the lost continent of Mu, the motherland of man…
…On some of the South Sea Islands, notably Easter, Mangaia, Tonga-tabu, Panape, and the Ladrone or Mariana Islands, there stand today remains of old stone temples and lithic remains which take us back to the time of Mu.
“Lost Continent of Mu Motherland of Men”; page 21.

James identifies twenty-one such ruins built by the people of Mu across the Pacific and the Yucatan. The size and weight of the component stones used in these monuments when coupled with the proposed antiquity immediately begs the question, “How could a primitive people accomplish such a feat?” Some even suggest the feat is impossible today given our advanced technology. Either Aliens or Giants helped or they had some special now-forgotten technology to get the job done, depending on the snake oil they are selling.

Everyone is familiar with Moai of Easter Island, the enormous monolithic stone statues spread out across the island. More than 900 were created and the tallest of these is thirty-three feet high and weighs 82 tons. A few years ago, some scientists got together and demonstrated one method of moving them as shown in the following video. It was estimated the Moai could have been moved into position in two weeks.

That may work for some of these enormous statues, but how could they move and place the blocks in evidence on the other islands?

One fact never mentioned is Megalithic cultures still exist and they still move enormous blocks today.
The people of West Sumba of Indonesia still move megalithic tombs weighing over 30 tons using ropes and a great deal of manpower. The following video depicts an example:

There are also similar examples on the Indonesian island of Nias and the Anagami Naga from Nagaland in northeastern India. This doesn’t disprove Aliens from outer space or Giants helped with moving heavy objects or some special now-forgotten technology was involved, however using Occam’s Razor, we have to exclude them. Simple stated, Occam’s Razor can be interpreted as:

“Among competing hypotheses, the one with the fewest assumptions should be selected.”

We have evidence people can move the enormous blocks of stone, there is no physical evidence of Aliens, Giants or special machines to move large blocks of stone.

Now some will say these primitive people didn’t have the manpower to accomplish these tasks, so it had to be something else, like Aliens, Giants or special now-forgotten technology. Alas, these people forget to mention Wally Wallington. Mr. Wallington (website: relates incredible feats including moving a 15-ton pole barn 200 feet with only 40 man-hours of work and starting a replica of Stonehenge with eight ten-ton blocks and 2-ton blocks on top, alone.

My first 1 man Stonehenge replica of 2400 lb. blocks put in place with no hoisting equipment.

My first 1 man Stonehenge replica of 2400 lb. blocks put in place with no hoisting equipment.

More comprehensive video is available from Mr, Wallington on his DVD, but there is a news video:

Not to be outdone, Gordon Pipes, another carpenter, demonstrated one more method to move twelve ton blocks without hundreds of people.

As far as these ancient monuments requiring extraterrestrials, giants or special now-forgotten technologies, it is plain to see there had to have been a false assumption. Maybe it is in the question
“How could a primitive people accomplish such a feat?”
Why would someone word the question in this manner, especially to use the word ‘primitive’? Is there some bias preventing us from acknowledging others to be superior in some respects; to have knowledge and/or skills we do not yet possess?

We are all one big human family and to think any particular segment is superior to another and has nothing to learn from their relatives sounds a little silly. We are all on this planet together; the self-imposed barriers preventing people from realizing our shared human existence and working together for the good of all people shows maybe we are the ‘primitive’ ones, and not our forebears who worked together to create lasting monuments to the solidarity of their people.
