A Few Great, Often Forgotten White Moments

Since this is Black History month (how can we forget?), it is important (since there is no White History month) to pay tribute to the humble contributions that White folks have made to our culture and to Western Civilization.

I don’t want to risk bragging by enumerating the obvious and blaring it out like some digital-lit billboard on the Interstate, but there are a whole lot of accomplishments that any White person over the age of (hmm) thirty is faintly familiar with. Such as the Magna Carta, the US Constitution, the wisdom of  ancient Greece, Christian morality, the Enlightenment, the King James Bible, the common law, property rights, religious tolerance, habeas corpus, universal suffrage, equality under the law, the Golden Rule, free-market economics, the abolition of slavery, respect for women. . . okay, you get the picture.

And the names, my gosh, where do I begin? Let us take note of Joan of Arc, Bach, Beethoven, Mozart, Leonardo Da Vinci, the mathematician Hypatia (d. 420AD), Michelangelo, Vermeer, Shakespeare, Florence Nightingale, Goethe, Moliere, Jane Austen, Isaac Newton, Christopher Wren, Charles Darwin, Watson & Crick, Olinto De Pretto, Samuel Johnson, Emmeline Pankhurst. . . the list is virtually endless.

My goal is to entertain as well as enlighten the reader with a few not-as-well known, or so-well-known but taken-for-granted inventions, happenings, and ideas, and a modicum of names of White people who deserve to be listed in the pantheon of The Great Whites. Let us begin.

Arthur Scherbius

Arthur Scherbius was a German electrical engineer who patented an invention for a mechanical cipher machine, later called the EnigmaC:\Users\kmacd\Desktop machine. He was born in Frankfurt, Germany and studied electricity at the Technical College in Munich, and then went on to study at the Technical College in Hanover, finishing in March 1903. The next year, he completed a dissertation titled, “Proposal for the Construction of an Indirect Water Turbine Governor” and was awarded a Doctorate in engineering.

He subsequently worked for a number of electrical firms in Germany and Switzerland. In 1918, he founded the firm of Scherbius & Ritter. He made a number of inventions, for example, asynchronous motors, electric pillows and ceramic heating parts; his research contributions led to his name being associated with the Scherbius principle for asynchrous motors. He applied for a patent in February 1918 for a cipher machine based on rotating wired wheels, what is now known as a rotor machine. (Thomas Jefferson invented a cipher wheel also.) His company also purchased the rights to another patent for a rotor machine from Hugo Koch—patented in 1919.

His firm’s cipher machine, marketed under the name “Enigma,” was initially pitched to the commercial market. There were several commercial models, and one of them was adopted by the German Navy (in a modified version) in 1926. The German Army adopted the same machine (also in a modified version somewhat different from the Navy’s) a few years later.

Just like all the other rotor machines, this apparatus had both electrical and mechanical systems. The mechanical part of the system consisted of rotors which were arranged along its spindle, a keyboard, and a stepping component which turned one of the rotors when a key was pressed and a sequence of lamps for all the letters.

The machine was used to encrypt any plaintext message and for every letter typed by the operator the lamp showed a different letter as per the pseudo-random substitution. The letters displayed by the lights were recorded as the enciphered substitute. When the key is pressed, it moves one of the rotors, so that the next key uses a different electric pathway, therefore, producing a different substitute alphabet for all the letters. The cyphertext is then transmitted to another operator who deciphers the message. As long as the settings of the deciphering equipment resembled that of the enciphering machine, the message could be deciphered.

Scherbius’ Enigma provided the German Army with the strongest cryptographic cipher in the world at the time, until the code was broken by Polish mathematicians in the 1930s, as discussed in the following section.

Marian Rejewski, Henryk Zygalski and Jerzy Rozycki

While Alan Turing gets all the credit for breaking the code of the Enigma machine, probably due to his cult-like celebration for being a brilliant homosexual and due to the hit movie The Imitation Game, it was actually three Poles who cracked the code. Their story is virtually non-existent to the public.

The earlier Enigma machines were adopted by the government and military services of numerous nations like Germany who used it to send and receive messages before and during the Second World War. The British and their allies understood the problem posed by this equipment in 1931 when a German spy known as Hans Thilo allowed his French spymaster to take a photograph of a stolen operating manual for the Enigma machine. The manual included all the keys and plugboard settings which the Germans used in September and October 1932.

The British and their allies could not decipher the message; therefore, they handed them over to a Polish mathematician named Marian Rejewski. Rejewski together with Henryk Zygalski and Jerzy Rozycki managed to build an Enigma double. They developed numerous techniques for defeating the plugboard and get all the components of the keys, thus making it possible for them to read all the German enciphered messages from 1933 to 1939. With the 1939 German invasion imminent, the Polish government decided to share their secrets with the British.

Less than six weeks before World War II began, on September 3, 1939, Lieutenant Gwido Langer, head of the Polish Central Staff’s cipher bureau invited British and French intelligence chiefs to a meeting at his secret cryptology centre at Pyry in the Kabaty woods near Warsaw.

There he revealed to them that his team, Rejewski, Zygalski, and Rozycki, had cracked the Enigma code seven years before and had been reading German messages ever since. This was five years before Alan Turing had even started studying cryptology – he was still working on a degree in mathematical logic at Princeton University in the United States.

The GC&CS (Government Code and Cipher School) in Buckinghamshire became the Allies’ center for dealing with the war-induced changes in the enciphered messages.

Since the Germans were convinced that their technology could not be deciphered, they continued using the machine for different types of communications with their secret services, in the sky, and on the battlefield. The decoded messages were given to a few commanders who used it cautiously making sure that the Germans did not find out that their cipher was broken.

Alan Turing, gay icon, will be the face on Britain’s next £50 note, which we’ll see in 2021 and is acknowledged as the father of computers. Turing’s legacy is carried on by the annual Turing Award that is the highest recognition in computer science since 1966.

The three young Polish mathematicians who were the first to crack the new German military Enigma code got their faces on a Polish postage stamp in 1983.

Claude Shannon

Have you heard the term “Information Theory?” No? Then perhaps you’ve been watching too many faux movies, like Red Tails (on the Tuskegee Airmen), or reading factvels (novels passing themselves off as non-fiction) like Hidden Figures (on African-American women involved in NASA).

Claude Elwood Shannon wrote the most important master’s thesis in history in which he, at twenty-one years old, applied Boolean algebra to switching circuitry titled “A Symbolic Analysis of Relay and Switching Circuits.” In this paper Shannon invented new mathematics to describe the laws of communication. It was a transformative work, turning circuit design from an art into a science, and is now considered to have been the starting point of digital circuit design.

In a 1939 letter to his mentor at Bell Laboratories, Vannevar Bush, Shannon outlined some of his initial ideas on “fundamental properties of general systems for the transmission of intelligence.” After working on the problem for a decade, Shannon finally published his masterpiece in 1948: “A Mathematical Theory of Communication.”  He introduced new ideas, like the entropy rate of a probabilistic model, which have been applied in far-ranging branches of mathematics such as ergodic theory, the study of long-term behavior of dynamical systems. Shannon’s theories have now become the standard framework underlying all modern-day communication systems: optical, underwater, even interplanetary.

His theories laid the groundwork for the electronic communications networks that now lace the earth. As noted by Ioan James, Shannon biographer for the Royal Society, “So wide were its repercussions that the theory was described as one of humanity’s proudest and rarest creations, a general scientific theory that could profoundly and rapidly alter humanity’s view of the world.”

While Shannon worked in a field for which no Nobel prize is offered, his work was richly rewarded by honors including the National Medal of Science (1966) and honorary degrees from Yale (1954), Michigan (1961), Princeton (1962), Edinburgh (1964), Pittsburgh (1964), Northwestern (1970), Oxford (1978), East Anglia (1982), Carnegie-Mellon (1984), Tufts (1987), and the University of Pennsylvania (1991). He was also the first recipient of the Harvey Prize (1972), the Kyoto Prize (1985), and the Shannon Award (1973). The last of these awards, named in his honor, is given by the Information Theory Society of the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE) and remains the highest possible honor in the community of researchers dedicated to the field that he invented.

But Shannon was also a fun-loving joker; he invented something called the “Ultimate Machine,” a machine—a box really—containing a replica of a human hand whose sole purpose was to turn off a switch that had been turned on by its user. Shannon approached research with a sense of curiosity, humor, and fun. An accomplished unicyclist, he was famous for cycling the halls of Bell Labs at night, juggling as he went. His later work on chess-playing machines and an electronic mouse that could run a maze helped create the field of artificial intelligence, the effort to make machines that think. Yeah, we call them computers.

As Stanford University Professor David Tse says, Shannon “invented the future.”

Oscar H. Banker

If you had never heard of Claude Shannon, then I can guarantee that you’ve never heard this man’s name. You should know it. . . you probably drove or were driven somewhere recently using two of his historic inventions — the automatic transmission and power steering.

Oscar H. Banker (b. Asatour Sarafian, May 31, 1895) was an Armenian-American inventor who patented a number of works, including an automatic transmission and power steering for automobiles. He is considered the “father of the automatic transmission.”

General Motors incorporated the semi-automatic transmission system into some of its vehicles in 1934, oddly enough the same year that Banker filed for a patent on the automatic transmission. The GM design had many flaws, leading Banker to propose his system to the company, asserting that it would be safer and more durable. After battling for eight years, Banker’s design was adopted and GM finally offered the American driver automatic transmissions using Banker’s design in 1940 in Oldsmobiles and Cadillacs, the first mass-produced automatic transmission vehicles. It was a marvel of engineering complexity that simplified driving so much that today, 97 per cent of all cars have just two pedals.

1940 Oldsmobile

In Banker’s memoirs titled Dreams and Wars of an American Inventor: An Immigrant’s Romance published in 1983 he writes: “America is yet the greatest country existing for opportunity, for achievement and if a person can endure the hardships, ridicule, rebuffs, whatever and keep on going! That is what counts. And absolutely nothing else.”

The Drinking Bird

It would seem that brilliant people have a penchant for designing useless toys if you follow the examples of Claude Shannon and Miles Sullivan both of whom worked for Bell Labs in the 1940s. Sullivan filed for a patent on his toy in 1946.

The drinking bird is an iconic desk toy, but can you explain how it works? The principle is unintuitive at first glance, but beautifully simple in hindsight, like only the most brilliant inventions are.

At its core, the drinking bird is a heat engine, not unlike a steam turbine or diesel engine. When the bird’s head dips in the water, it gets wet. When the water evaporates, the bird’s head cools. This temperature change in-turn changes the internal pressure of the bird’s vacuum sealed body, and the movement of the gases and liquids inside propel the bird’s motion.

The bird’s underlying principle is unintuitive at first glance, beautifully simple and a mesmerizing feat of engineering. The drinking bird illustrates many principles in chemistry and physics: boiling and condensation; combined gas law; torque; the center of mass; capillary action (wicking of water into the felt); wet-bulb temperature (temperature difference between head and body bulbs depends on the relative humidity of the air); the Maxwell-Boltzmann distribution; heat of vaporization/heat of condensation; and the functioning of a heat engine.

It’s best just to watch it in action and listen to the engineer guy explain it.

The Columbian Exposition of 1893

The World’s Columbian Exposition celebrated the 400th anniversary of Christopher Columbus’s discovery of America. (Or as Wikipedia says, Columbus’s arrival in the new world.)

There hasn’t been a World’s Fair in North America since 1986 in Vancouver, B.C., and the last one in the US was in New Orleans in 1984. During the Fairs’ heydays, wealthy and middleclass families would make pilgrimages across the seas to meccas of modernization to see the wonders firsthand.

Rather than trumpeting how great each nation was or could be, the Fairs became pitiful reminders of how desperate we had become. World’s Fairs don’t even try to capture the imagination like they used to. The 1939 World’s Fair’s Dawn of a New Day slogan exuded aspirational wonder as nations shamelessly hawked their latest kitchen appliances or technological innovation.

The 1964 Fair held in New York focused on Peace Through Understanding—how many foreign wars has the US engaged in since then? The last Fair in 2015 in Milan, Italy had as its theme — Feeding the planet, energy for life — it focused on ending hunger and developing food sustainability for impoverished nations. . . what a downer!

Dubai, a sheikhdom in the United Arab Emirates, bet billions of dollars on an Expo to rejuvenate its struggling economy. That Expo is now postponed to Oct. 1, 2021, due to the coronavirus pandemic.

But the Columbian Expo held in Chicago was probably the pinnacle of global mankind’s demonstration of striving for excellence.

Fredrick Law Olmsted, possibly the world’s foremost landscape architect, laid out the plan to build on a swamp requiring wood pilings driven into the ground to support the buildings. He also created a system of lagoons and lakes in which full size replicas of Columbus’ ships, the Niña, the Pinta, and the Santa Maria floated. 40,000 skilled and unskilled laborers (making ten cents a day) constructed the fair’s buildings.

There were over 65,000 exhibits at the fair covering 630 acres. The Chicago skyline was dominated by a 250-foot-high Ferris wheel, designed for the fair by inventor George Ferris. It was 100 feet taller than today’s Ferris wheel at Chicago’s Navy Pier and had 36 cars capable of holding 60 people each. Fully loaded, it could carry 2,160 people and took a full twenty minutes to make one rotation. The commission responsible for the Fair believed it couldn’t be done. But Ferris, embodying the spirit of American ingenuity and doggedness, built it anyway.

The color of the material generally used to cover the buildings’ façades, white staff, which was a type of plaster of Paris, gave the fairgrounds its nickname—the White City. Its scale and grandeur far exceeded all prior world’s fairs including the one held in Paris in 1889 symbolized by the Eiffel Tower. The Columbian Expo became a symbol of emerging American Exceptionalism.

The main entryway was a peristyle of forty-eight massive fluted columns on either side of an arch in the style of the Arc de Triompe.

Every US state built an exhibition house or building to show its products. California had, among other things, a full-size medieval knight on a horse made of prunes. Missouri showcased a replica of the Statue of Liberty made of sugar. Philadelphia sent the Liberty Bell to grace Pennsylvania’s building.

This was the first Fair to solicit exhibits from foreign countries and forty-six heeded the call. It seemed that each nation was in a fierce competition to excel the others. France built a nearly full-size wing of the Palace of Versailles.

On October 9, 1893, nearly a million people paid 50 cents to attend the opening where President Grover Cleveland pushed a solid gold button to switch on George Westinghouse’s electric lights that illuminated in a bath of brilliant whiteness the staff-laden buildings of the Fair. Nearly half of the total population of the US attended the Fair.

It is impossible to describe the awesome accomplishment of the White men and women who came together to create one of the wonders of the modern world. Everything about it was the biggest, the best, the greatest. It had the longest telescope in the world, the largest building in the world, and a choir of 2,500 singers.

A good book to read on the subject is Erik Larson’s The Devil in the White City. Another place that I really recommend is the documentary narrated by Gene Wilder titled “Magic of the World’s Fair.” Trust me, the documentary will amaze you.

If you watch the documentary, and I hope you do, you will be left with a sense of appreciation for what white people have achieved. Like George Ferris who was not content to allow the erector-set appearing Eifel Tower to stand as the crowning glory of civilization, there were others who motivated by money, fame, or ego, would scale mountains of obstacles, and leave their indelible record in the history books and in their genes for future generations.

You might also feel a bit wistful if not melancholy as you contemplate that White people descended to the deepest part of the oceans, climbed the highest land masses, and flew to the moon to go for a walk.

Can we ever attain the impossible tasks again? Or have we lost that intangible component, that antecedent of accomplishment, that precursor of victory, and that faculty of deliberative striving?

Have we lost it — our will?

    Oy, vey, Whites didn’t invent chitlins, soul food (why ‘soul’ when the soul is an artifact?), peanut butter, gefilte fish, gangsta rock, stand-up comics, molestation of the national anthem at pro sports games by mangling the music, Single Mothers Anonymous…all innovations which tilted the Earth’s orbit. When the group which invented 99.99 percent of civilization feels obliged to enumerate its contributions then it is in deep psychological trouble.

    It is a pity that when the allies were discussing the Enigma machine with the Poles they did not say that the Poles should stop murdering Germans, killing German cattle, burning German farms and crops and stop shooting at Germans fleeing into what was left of Germany.
    Then there would not have been WW2.

    Very interesting that the vast majority of great minds are of WASP extraction. Is the need to force people into a collective ‘white identity’ not counterproductive when some lesser minds are unproductive or outright hostile to other groups identities? Take for example the Irish and Italian ‘Americans’ who have done more than any other ethnic groups to undermine the WASPish identity of the United States.

    • WASP was probably not the best choice of words. Greeks, Italians, French, Spanish, Portuguese have collectively contributed more than WASPs over the aeons. Pythagoras, Archemedes, Michaelangelo, Galileo, Leonardo Da Vinci. I could go on all nigh

        According to C. Murray [Human Accomplishment] most achievement comes from “a certain small part of northern Europe.”

        Brand new book by Charles: Facing Reality: Two Truths about Race in America-

        The charges of white privilege and systemic racism that are tearing the country apart fIoat free of reality. Two known facts, long since documented beyond reasonable doubt, need to be brought into the open and incorporated into the way we think about public policy: American whites, blacks, Hispanics, and Asians have different violent crime rates and different means and distributions of cognitive ability. The allegations of racism in policing, college admissions, segregation in housing, and hiring and promotions in the workplace ignore the ways in which the problems that prompt the allegations of systemic racism are driven by these two realities.

        What good can come of bringing them into the open? America’s most precious ideal is what used to be known as the American Creed: People are not to be judged by where they came from, what social class they come from, or by race, color, or creed. [This is actually false, as the Naturalization Act of 1790 says the USA is “open to Free White parsons.”] They must be judged as individuals. The prevailing Progressive ideology repudiates that ideal, demanding instead that the state should judge people by their race, social origins, religion, sex, and sexual orientation.

        We on the center left and center right who are the American Creed’s natural defenders have painted ourselves into a corner. We have been unwilling to say openly that different groups have significant group differences. Since we have not been willing to say that, we have been left defenseless against the claims that racism is to blame. What else could it be? We have been afraid to answer. We must. Facing Reality is a step in that direction.

    One can seemingly forever wonder why we are hated by non-Whites. Is it because of our discoveries, our success, our creativity in architecture, our explorations, our naming the plants and animals, our advances in medicine, our stellar music, our literature, or that we are just the best looking race?

    Maybe all those things. But one thing we must never forget – they need us. We do not need them.

      How right you are Tim! They need us, we certainly DON’T need them. And yet, silly as it sounds this is precisely why we will not be easily able to secede and withdraw to more hospitable locations. Imagine where the bluest of the blue states would be without whitey’s tax dollars. Look to South Afreaka for a sneak peek into the future: IF China were to send an Armada to Capetown with a view to conquering SA, they would find themselves confronted by an ‘army’ whose equipment fails every test, over half of the Soldiers are HIV Positive and an Air Force with hundreds of Planes most of which are unable to fly. The only reason China has NOT YET attempted such a move is the USA and what it (under Trump) may have done in response. Now that Creeper Joe is installed and the CIA has Italian Spooks, Spanish spooks as well as German spooks monitoring America’s internet connected voting machines and able to ‘re-allocate’ or ‘re-adjudicate’ votes to the candidates of their choice and there’s not one damned thing anyone can do about it. You wake up one morning knowing White Americans are never again going to be able to trust their election outcomes. Seriously; what chance the Swamp one day simply dismantling all their vote rigging apparatus voluntarily? I say NONE! In fact I’ll say it won’t be long before the swamp begins jailing people who insist the last election was rigged.

        Still, I think our people will prevail so long as at least a minority (perhaps a hundred thousand) are simply willing to do what is right WITHOUT any guarantee of success. Insofar as articulating what ‘doing right’ is I can put it no better than David Lane’s 14 words: ‘We must secure the existence of our people and a future for White children.’

    Max Heiliger says:

    I must just laugh sometimes at such idiodic concepts as Black History and the contrabution of the negro to civilisation. Is this for real? Everything from toasters to Tannhãuser, from engines to aeroplanes, etc was created by a white european, whether in the Nuevo Mundo or in the Abendland. What if the english and irish never settled and created modern Australia? Those darkies sat there for 50,000 yesrs and had not yet evolve to farm the land, had no clothes or internet or cities but lived just like a group of chimps. That is fact, not a racist rant. They are simply a different species of human, much less developed. Again some of their groups are more evolved than others. You cannot compare a jungle negro and an ethopian, the latter is vastly superior. In the USA they have admixed, some half- europeans like Obama are intelligent and very accomplished no doubt. But in the main their contribution to US culture is negro music, jazz, hiphop around the fire, blues etc – fine, but that is hardly a major contribution to civilisation.

    If white peopke disappeared how would they fly and rapair planes, upkeep internet, manufacture products etc. Industry and innovation would come to a halt. In 50 years America would become a poor third world mess like Congo or Niger.

    A brave and kind solution is to arrange for their return to their natural habitat.

    Maybe we have lost the will. Our confidence has been assaulted and our children are taught how White everything is bad and non-white everything is good. Also back in the day we worked, thought, imagined, created and relaxed in a largely White environment amongst our own kind. Even immigrants like Mr Oscar Banker above, are not coming to an America that has the confidence and “infrastructure” to support inventive creativity – perhaps only in service to some global goal.

    With reference to the ‘Enigma Machine,’ the German encoding/decoding machine, I have read, I believe that the Allies were able to decipher the code subsequent to capturing U – 505 in 1943. Her crew attempted to scuttle her. But the Americans were able to pump her out. And, the Germans did not destroy the Enigma machine before they abandoned her. But perhaps this was just wartime propaganda.

    I read many years ago about the Poles breaking the Enigma code. It seems
    they don’t get the credit they deserve for an achievement which sounds at least as great as what Alan Turing did. But Alan Turing was a credit to his sexual orientation (joke).

    This is going to surely sound bad but when I grew up and I still have a similar
    perception, that most achievements in history were done by Europeans. I am
    not a scholar but I am aware of the Persian Empire, ancient Egypt, that China
    made great advances and I have met intelligent Indians and some Africans too. I am aware east Asians are very intelligent and most people know of Jewish intelligence (even if I wonder would they have achieved much in a non-European / American / Australian / Canadian) environment. I have to be careful because I like to speak honestly but I don’t want to offend anyone (unless I find them offensive) but it seems to me no other civilization comes
    close to Europe. Growing up (not very long after WW II) it seems the competition was mostly between European countries (including countries founded by Europeans like the USA). And the hatred was the strongest
    between European countries so racism played no role if we disregard Jews. Like today, racism (accept against Whites) is not a problem although propaganda says just the opposite. Unfortunately, Jewish one sided efforts to forever accuse many European countries of being the worst mass murderers (mostly thru lies and propaganda) while denying their own role in mass murder and Jews intention to keep this up for eternity will prevent a real healing between Europeans to happen. Or, maybe it’s just me because I can’t warm up to people continuously accusing my people of being the most awful people that ever lived and doing it right to my face. I don’t think they would dare say anything close to that to another group. I think this is interesting because the Jews insult many European countries but it appears these countries are incapable of uniting and saying “no”, and here is what you did. The Jews are so self centered and biased, they are incapable of being honest. They are despicable (as opposed to deplorable) but somehow Europeans (in particular ,eastern and central Europe) are incapable of forming a united front against Jewish lies.

In one of the Moto novels, an American agent says to Mr. Moto, Have you ever noticed that frightened people think the quickest? It’s quite true, and it may explain why Jews are such quick thinkers: They are perpetually frightened, or as a Jewish former employer of mine said to me years ago in a moment of candor, You know, Roland, all Jews are paranoid. Perhaps that is the real reason for their success. As for countries uniting against Jews, I believe that what is happening to the US today is simply karma for what we did to Germany after WWI and WW2.

        Did you ever read “The Late George Apley”? If you did, did you like it? Your reference to it has made me recall that the book was a great favorite of my mother’s (1913–2001), and she was a woman with good taste in her era’s contemporary fiction (apart, perhaps, for her liking for John O’Hara’s stuff).

        Alas, I never read the book when I was younger, and my old eyes now find reading the printed page something between a chore and an impossibility.

    Taylor McClain was right, Gene Wilder’s documentary was mind boggling. The physics involved in the drinking bird was hard to believe. Enigma was the perfect word for the crypto machine. Enigma is also good word to describes one’s wonder at humanity’s simultaneous capacity for greatness and baseness. Thanks for Mr. McClain’s work illuminating enormous accomplishments otherwise all but forgotten.

    “fundamental properties of general systems for the transmission of intelligence. “ by Shannon

    Well it was first formulated by Russian scientist Vladimir Kotelnikov


    However lets return to great White contributors in science, there is interesting question. Was Albert Einstein real author of relativity theory and “best Physicist of All times” or its another example of (((propaganda)))

    As I understand mr. Einstein did not worked at the time as physicist, he was “patent examiner at the Swiss Patent Office in Bern.” His Serbian wife however was a physicist. What is more intriguing, all mr. Einsteins real contributions in physics science accidentally happened when he was married to his Serbian ( non Jewish ) wife (1903 – 1914) . After they separated all his contribution to science were to make intelligent faces and blabbering some scientific sounded nonsense.

    In some of his letters to his physicist wife he used words “our theory” What exactly “our theory” he was referring to?

    What is also interesting when mr. Einstein got his Nobel Prize, he send money to his ex wife. Paying for silence perhaps?

    I have been all over Europe and rubbed shoulders with the proletariat and the crème de la crème. Other than a few people, most Europeans seem to comprehend brother wars were the worst thing that could’ve happened to humanity. To a great extend we are a mixed lot. One could touch the Scandinavian invasions of what used to be called the British isles or Slavdom. At one time just about all of East Germany was inhabited by Slavs. Even today, this can be seen by the names of many places. On the other hand, during the religious turmoil millions of Germans migrated to so-called Slavic lands. Masses became Polonized or Russianized.

    Those who have studied linguistics can usually see that many German names have been altered from Slavic. Today in the Slavic realm there is a plethora of German names that have been modified. Brother wars! People should study the English and German languages and look at roots of many verba.

    There was a time when the English – French hatred towards one another was immense. Even on a micro scale we can refer to the last century’s Czech – German antagonisms. Yet, Czechs and Germans had mingled together for several centuries. In the various neighborhoods of Mother Europe they have been to many squabbles. If one looks where Europeans have settled, it’s easy to notice that the English, who once hated the Irish, have intermarried to a large extend. As for the dramatic German Slavic factor, for centuries they have married one another.

    All well and good for the positive humble contributions that White folks have made to humanity. What, though, about the disadvantageous contributions White folk have promoted?

    Romans 12:20: “But if your enemy is hungry, feed him, and if he is thirsty, give him a drink; for in so doing you will heap burning coals on his head.”

    Islam has proved beyond all doubt to Europeans that that feeding and housing your enemies doesn’t heap burning coals on their heads. Rather, it enables them to breed at a more voracious rate and colonize European countries more quickly.

    1 Corinthians 4:12: “And we toil, working with our own hands; when we are reviled, we bless; when we are persecuted, we endure …”

    The only enduring Europeans are doing in the face of the Third World onslaught is watching their women and children being raped on a daily basis. The new custom in Sweden at the moment is where native children get set upon by immigrants and are forced to strip off their clothes, be robbed and/or sexually abused, and then be forced to kiss the feet of their attackers.

    Luke 6:28: “Bless those who curse you, pray for those who mistreat you.”

    White Europeans have made an art of this one:
    ○ A French bus driver was beaten and crippled by immigrant thugs; his partner actually said she felt sorry for the thugs “because their lives are also ruined”.
    ○ Teenage German girl raped and murdered by immigrant savage; her father rushed out to virtue signal his forgiveness to the savage.
    ○ Somali asylum seeker in the UK since 2004 committed two rapes whilst also being convicted for 6 other crimes since his arrival there; a half-hearted attempt to deport him was refused by a female English judge, her reason being that the rapist wouldn’t get adequate healthcare in Somalia.
    ○ ETC.

    Blessing those that curse and mistreat them certainly isn’t working out for the Europeans.

    Matthew 5:44: “But I say to you, love your enemies and pray for those who persecute you.”

    Well, I say, fu*k Matthew. Punish your enemies and stomp on those that persecute you.

    Romans 12:19: “Never take your own revenge, beloved, but leave room for the wrath of God, for it is written, ‘Vengeance is Mine, I will repay,’ says the Lord.”

    Ever hear the joke about the man who fell off a cliff and was hanging halfway down by a tree root? Whilst dangling he called out for help, shouting: “is there anyone up there”. After a time a booming voice answered him, saying: “I’m up here, I’m God, I know all and see all”. The hanging man explained his situation and asked for help. God repeated: “I’m up here, I’m God, I know all and see all”. The hanging man asked again and again for help, but God answered the same each time. Eventually the hanging man shouted: “Is there anyone fu*king else up there”.

    Luke 6:29: “Whoever hits you on the cheek, offer him the other also; and whoever takes away your coat, do not withhold your shirt from him either.”

    If Luke really did give this advice, then, without a doubt, it was directed at people he wanted to be destroyed. It’s laughable really. When a Somali, Nigerian or Arab animal rapes a White daughter, they’d be more than happy to be offered the other daughter as well.

    And it’s almost at a point where the European sh*ts will actually willingly offer the rapists the other daughters. Check out the British judge who forced the English cucks to keep in their country the Somali rapist of two British girls.

    But then, Luke was a Jew, was he not? Perhaps Christianity was the Jew’s first attempt at pulling off a psyop? An obviously successful attempt.

      I have been saving this up for the opportune moment:


      a paradoxical anecdote or riddle, used in Zen Buddhism to demonstrate the inadequacy of logical reasoning and to provoke enlightenment. [Definitions from Oxford Languages]

      What is the sound of one hand clapping? [from a Zen Master to a novice]
      my answer- “What is the sound of one bull crapping?”

      Egoism vs Altruism- A so-called authority, in front of a large crowd, asserts some absurdities. The crowd, with one exception, remains silent. The exception is the child from The Emperor’s New Clothes: “He is naked!” The child is practicing Egoism, the crowd is practicing altruism, denying what it sees with its own eyes, as recommended by Immanuel Kant and George Berkeley.

      Commenter FG, by taking on the role of the child, is questioning the assertions of the Bible. Where is the proof? The arguments?

      I think that all these assertions are a test to see if anyone is suited for major leadership. Those who do not question are not ready for prime time.

      Let us gather up all of the egoists we can. . .

        Pierre de Craon says:

        I would say, rather, that the assertions that FG is questioning derive from seeing a Saturday Night Live parody of the Bible. Three will get you five that he has never held the genuine article in his hand. Nor does the bulk of his comment mark him out as someone with much to contribute to the pro-white cause beyond a well-developed capacity for pissing and moaning.

          I am genuinely sorry that M. de Craon has optical difficulties, but New Testament quotes counseling submission to enemies cited are actually there in the text and supported by the context, as well as by alruist NT commentators like Raymond Belliotti. However, the “sacred scriptures” do contain many puzzling and/or incompatible verses – hence the multiple “private interptetations” of different Protestant denominations, and the waning of the Catholic magisterium in recent years.

          Sometimes a general consensus can exist among Christian and non-Christian readers, especially if a knowledge of Greek, Aramaic and contemporary culture is utilised. For example, the contrast between Synoptic gospels genre and the “transcendental” Logos nature of the Fourth, “presented as a drama, consisting of a prologue, two main acts, and an epilogue. By considering the gospel in this light, its distinctive character may be understood and its teaching illuminated” (“Oxford Companion to the Bible”, p.373).

          I fear that M. de Craon all too often prefers to project bad thoughts or motives onto those who offer another opinion, rather than engage with their actual arguments; Matthew 7.3.

            “I fear …”

            Your fears and concerns might seem slightly more genuine were you not so heavily addicted to practicing psychoanalysis without a license.

            The soi-disant learned authorities you cite bear roughly the same quotient of credibility with regard to Christianity and the Scriptures that the New York Times does with regard to the needs, concerns, and history of white people. Put otherwise, your pose of objectivity with regard to literal, allegorical, moral, or anagogic interpretation of John or any other book of the New Testament is an ill-fitting mask covering your plain disdain for Christianity and Christians. You are, of course, by no means alone hereabouts in thinking as you do, but most of those who think similarly prefer plainspoken candor to your air of intellectual superiority.

      Luke in fact may not have been among those “of the circumcision” who were more revanchist than Christians. The style of Luke-Acts is notably Greek.

    Does anyone remember that black woman on the plane in America a few months ago telling the white passengers how you did not have privilege over her, it went viral and is still up on YouTube. The irony she was on a plane was obviously lost on her , there she was totally failing to realize that the road to that moment started at kitty Hawk in 1903 when those 2 white boys the wright brothers took to the air. when 6 years later a white Frenchman Bleriot flew the channel and withing 6 year’s of that the sky’s of France would be full of white British and German men in dog fights. Or that a year after the ward ended two white guys Alcock and Brown would fly the Atlantic in 1919 or 7 years after that Lindbergh would do it on his own from New York to Paris. Or 6 years after that frank Whittle would develop the jet engine followed by Hans von Ohain and 12 years after that in 1942 the ME262 the first jet powered aircraft took to the sky’s. Seven years after the war the first passenger jet liner took to the sky’s the Comet, more white guy stuff. The next step the Boeing 707 which started the move to mass airline travel for the public took to the sky’s in 1958 , 12 years after that Concorde flew for the first time and would be winging across the Atlantic at 1400 mph. At the same time the 747 took to the sky’s and travel would be changed for ever for ordinary people. I would love to have been there to inform her of this, and the almost total lack of black people in the story to get her to that moment.

    To clarify my position regarding Christians and Christianity misrepresented here by someone who pseudonymously strains at the gnat of a critical post while swallowing the camel of first-century religious texts containing incredible events and disputable ethics, I do not seek a battle with Christians whose Muslim and Marxist enemies are also my enemies. I regret the deterioration of their faith into a social gospel which welcomes Afro-Asian mass-immigration and condones vice and incompetence. I am not happy about losing my own faith in a Church whose last positive occasion that I recall in very much earlier years was the traditional Latin Mass arranged by Cardinal Heenan for the anti-communist Cardinal Mindszenty in Wesminster Cathedral, whose internal architectural structure incidentally, has been wrecked by the “democratisation” of the altar and baldachin. There is no consolation in watching a great western religion committing suicide, along with a great British nation and a great European civilization.
