Does anyone know of a reverse swastika engraved in a rock that is said to be engraved in it when the rock was thousands of feet below the water? I heard about this on 'Scream Team' and I can't seem to find any information about it. I don't even know where it was found.

Chris_com28,

Not sure of a particular find of a rock with a reverse swastika, but I do know that the reverse swastika was used by native americans long before hitler ever bastardized it.

not just native americans actually. wasn't it a couple of different groups? the original swastika was a symbol for love, luck, and sorts of happy stuff.

speakin of swastikas, in the town where i live, there's an artists living here. this artist has changed his name to manwoman (i'm serious) and has almost his entire body covered in swastika tattoos. he tells people about the real meaning of the swastika before the nazis used it.

crazy thing about this manwoman guy, the japanese have bought his skin. they paid a couple million dollars for it. when he dies, the japanese will skin him and display his skin.

i'm aware that this sounds completely insane, but i swear on everything, it's true.

Umm, no. It was in use from at the earliest, 1000 B.C., long before the "cross", and was used in much of Europe and Asia.

As for the original post, I've never heard of that, but what is it supposed to mean to us?

Yeah we learned in school that indian culture used the swastica long long before the nazis got their grubby hands on it.

Wonder how thos illeducated neo-nazi skinheads feel about that lol.

Not sure if I remember correctly, but the reverse swastika represents peace.. and then hitler flipped it to mean the opposite.

I'm aware of the meaning of the symbol itself.

Original poster:  Does anyone know of a reverse swastika engraved in a rock that is said to be engraved in it when the rock was thousands of feet below the water?

What's a reverse swastika engraved underwater supposed to mean? I mean, what's the metaphysical significance of such a symbol being carved while underwater (assuming that part of the story is true)?

Here's an interesting site about the history of the swastika in Ukraine going back hundreds of years. It was painted and engraved in churches and used as a family coat of arms in the middle ages.

Apparently the story goes that the Nazi swastika is actually in reverse and the original one is a budhist symbol for luck and invoking good spirits(I believe).

Hitler found out that if the Swastika is reversed it invokes either the devil or evil or something along those lines and he used it as the symbol for the Nazi party.

bah, the swastika was used by olden day christians too, most likely this is where Hitler got it from, looking to germany's aryan past for the perfect aryan symbol or some poop like that

but meh its just a symbol.
