ive heard that hitler practiced dark magic (or his top agents did)...and also in hellboy the nazi's are practicing dark arts....does anyone know whether this is verified? oh and i read in a book that hitler was so hopped up on drugs and anphetamines (sp?) that he was erratic and depressed and clinically mad...i read this in "alien agenda" by jim marrs.

Well, there is a stone called The Swastika Stone in the U.K. which is thought to be 3000 years old.
It is near Ilkley in West Yorkshire.

here is a site about it - check it out for the picture.


Recently, Terry Deary, author of the Horrible Histories childrens books, has put forward a theory that it is an image of a throwing stick or boomerang, which would mean the British had invented them...I think Australia will be a bit peeved about that theory.

dont know about it being engraved underwater though...

I was told once that the swastika was a symbol of all good things, the four L's
Love, Life, Luck, Light.

A lot of cultures used it , the Romans, Greeks, Chinese and the North American Indians. It was found on Chinese coins dated from 315B.C the Mayans used it as well.

Just the fact that is known the world over, aside from Nazi use, tells us that there is a significant meaning. What it is I don't know, but it seems that mankind did at one time. Just add it to the list of forgotten knowledge in hopes that it will be added to the list of re-discoveries wink2.gif

The swastika, or the original mirror image of Hitler's swastika, is an ancient symbol of protection and has been used in various religions, occultism and philosophies as holy symbols, ogam, runes, etc. - its true origins will probably be forever unknown, as its likely its initial pictographic history predates civilization and written languages, as its a fairly simple symbol (4 lines in a + or cross, with 'tails') - this would be only a little less likely to get an answer than asking where the circle originated.

And yes, Hitler practiced, or at least made us of, the practice of occultism and symbology, whether from belief or taking advantage of superstitions or even "every little bit helps", he employed everything from mystics, psychics, fortune tellers and "magicians" and occultists, to paraphrasing the prophecies of Nostradamus to support his own claims (good thing nobody does that now, heh), and he did have a small branch of official nazi occultist operatives which studied paranormal and religious artifacts and material, including the Spear of Destiny, whic might be familiar to some of you. Apparently, either it was all for naught or he did it wrong. =) Most likely all that "bad stuff" coming back on him however-many fold it is, heh.

if the swastika is what hitler butchered, then why is the reverse swastika called that when it actually appeared first??? blink.gif  

There's an old saying - you like someone "because".  "Because" they ahve blue eyes, or a pretty smile, or a cute nose.  You love someone "even though".  Even though he's not rich, even though she's not an excellent cook.  Liking means you're fond of their good traits.  Love means you accept them fully even though they're not perfect.

You don't love a woman because she is beautiful, but she is beautiful because you love her.--Anon.

I always thought that the swastika was an old greek symbol made up of four gammas or sumthing like that. Might hav been deltas.

The swastika with the tails in the opposite direction to the one the Nazis used is supposed to be the Sun, hence it spins clockwise, tails following the arms as motion streaks.

But as to who first used the symbol, who knows?

I know that it used to be used a lot in the occult etc. It definately meant goodluck or someting.

Ouija Boards pre ww2 had the swastika on them for goodluck and protection.

As to the swastika being underwater, it mayv'e been engraved and them flooded.

In china you have whole villages under water and religious temples/statues underwater.
