No dude, it wasn't New Zeeland (not full rights for all women), Wyoming

However, instead Klevius fears girls are fed with even more religious sexism and misogyny at school.

* Minna Canth was neither a "leftist" nor a feminist.
The word 'feminist' wasn't even invented in modern meaning before just
some years before her death - and meant quite the opposite to what Minna
Canth stood for.
She began to write when she
became a widow. Her work addresses issues of women's rights,
particularly in the context of a prevailing sex segregated culture she
considered antithetical to permitting expression and realization of
women's aspirations. She therefore became a controversial figure, due to
the asynchrony between her ideas and those of her time, and in part due
to her strong advocacy for her point of view.
Canth is the first woman to receive her own flag day in Finland,
starting on 19 March 2007. It is also the day of social equality in
Religion was Minna Canth's main enemy. In 1885
a bishop argued that God's order required that women were not
emancipated*. The writer Gustaf af Geijerstam then argued that men could
only aspire to one day having the purity of women because they were
fundamentally different and this was the reason for prostitution and
other immorality. Canth objected strongly to this argument as it meant
that men could defend their poor morals by reference to their implicit
shortcomings, whereas any women involved in prostitution would lack the
However, always remember young Otto Weininger's words in 1903: 'The
main obstacle to women's emancipation is the Woman.' Indeed, there would

In Minna Canth's play The
Worker's Wife from 1885, the main character Johanna is married to Risto,
an alcoholic who wastes all his wife's money. Johanna cannot prevent
him – her money is legally his, not hers. The play's premiere of course
caused a scandal, but the fact that only a few months later, parliament
enacted a new law about separation of property, shows that these
thoughts were already high on the political agenda in Finland - at a
time when Freud was just about to start his misogynist psychoanalysis
fantasies as a reaction to Mill's work about women which enraged the
simple minded but elegantly writing and talking Sigmund (see Peter Klevius' Psychosocial Freud Timeline
to get a better grip on this line of thoughts).
play Anna Liisa from 1895 describes a probably authentic tragedy about a
fifteen-year-old girl who gets pregnant without being married – she
manages to hide her pregnancy, and when the child is born, she
suffocates it in a fit of panic. Her boyfriend Mikko's mother helps her –
she buries the baby in the woods, but a few years later, when Anna
Liisa wants to marry her fiancé Johannes, she is blackmailed by Mikko
and his mother. They threaten her to reveal her dark secret if she does
not agree to marry Mikko, but Anna Liisa refuses. In the end, she

was followed by an other female giant, Europe's foremost modernist poet
of her time, the Finland-Swedish Edith Södergran, about whom Klevius has
written lengthy and deep probing posts (now sadly collapsed with the
collapse of Geocities).
So why has the tiny
Finland-Swedish community produced more per capita progressive thoughts
than anywhere else in the world? Well, Klevius has in different ways
already for a long time explained the reasons for this. Briefly it's

The bedrock of "monotheist" religions is sex apartheid - and worst of them is islam
Did you know that the word 'God' comes from the Finnish word for home ('koti')
which is far older than any of the Mideastern "monotheisms"?

for god 'khoda' connects to the even more ancient Finnish 'koti' and

Klevius' Finland-Swedish Hobbit story
The Dragon of Evil, Tolkien, and Moomin Mum
The Dragon of Evil in the Tolkien calendar by Tove Jansson
Everyone (except islamist muslims) seem to agree that islamism is evil.
However, many, especially politicians and muslims, claim that islam is
"a great and peaceful religion". From this we may conclude that islamism
contains both islam and evil in an inseparable connection which poses
the question how islam could possibly be without evil. Even more so when
considering that the original spread of islam during more than hundred
years (before it settled as sultanates simply sponging on slave business
- the so called "golden age") was completely based on evil religiously
"justified" robbery, slaughtering, raping and enslavement of the
"infidels". Islam's problem is it foundation in evil medieval parasitism
that it has now brought to the modern society.
The twisted logic that evil islam should be blinked as "islamism" has
led to a variety of incomprehensible stand points. For example and
ironically, because of muslim terrorists muslims now ask for extra
protection against "anti-muslim sentiments" - on top of the general
protection already in place. Why? Does this mean that non-muslim
right-wing politicians also should get extra protection because of
right-wing extremists? However, the worst twist of all is by far the
Saudi based and steered (by the Saudi dictator family) all muslim's
world organization OIC and its sharia declaration via UN.
Klevius has no knowledge about J R Tolkien's view on islam. However,
Klevius is convinced that J R Tolkien would have shared Klevius
definition of evil based on Human Rights equality.
J R Tolkien's main hero since he was a boy and throughout his entire
life was Kullervo in the Finnish epic Kalevala. Many characteristics of
Kullervo can also easily be traced in Beowulf and Hamlet both of whom
were Scandinavians from a time when Fennoscandia was known as Kvenland
(see further down). This period is called Vendel time after a small
village near Uppsala in eastern Sweden which at that time was populated
by Finns and some old Nordic speaking bi-lingual "Finland-Swedes" (see
more about this further down).
Klevius is convinced that Tove Jansson would have full heartedly
approved of Tolkien's choice of such an ambiguous hero as Kullervo.
The official Tolkien calendar of 2016 (left) is illustrated by Finland-Swedish Tove Jansson (aka Moomin Mum).
Tove Jansson has also illustrated Swedish and Finnish books by Tolkien

Back then Hitler (the Germans) cried for more cake - today islam (the muslims) do the same!
This brave caricature, 'more cake' was made by Tove Jansson in Finland

Tove Marika Jansson (9 August 1914 – 27 June 2001) was a
Swedish-speaking novelist, painter, illustrator and comic strip author
from Finland. For her contribution as a children's writer she received
the Hans Christian Andersen Medal in 1966.
Tove Jansson is best known as the author of the Moomin books for children and the astonishing The True Deceiver
for adults. The first Moomin book, The Moomins and the Great Flood,
appeared in 1945, i.e. the same year Astrid Lindgren, an other world
famous Swedish speaking author, published her first book about the
Tomboyish Pippi Longstocking.
Like Klevius, Tove Jansson belongs to the tiny bilingual Finland-Swedish
minority. In fact, access to her summer house on the pic passes a
nearby place where Klevius used to live, neighboring a carpenter who
used to build Moomin furnitures for Moominland.
However, unlike Klevius, Tove Jansson never had kids. It's even alleged
that she felt slightly uncomfortable with kids. So where Klevius has
been a family man in practice, Tove Jansson created her family
environment as a fiction.

The little bright Hobbit girl and the giant blonde warrior
There seems to be no way of
avoiding the fact that the first truly intelligent modern humans arose
in northern Eurasia. The art and genetic tracks (see below) are more
than convincing albeit not yet visibly presented as such other than on
Klevius book, blogs and sites so far (though the field is slowly but
inevitably moving towards Klevius).
The people who got the new brain set up were short in stature as
most Siberian people were until recently. However, when Seima-Turbino
like phenomenons started (possibly even long before Seima-Turbino) big
guys who had become blond in the north hunted for cute mongolic looking
girls (compare Kalevala). Some of those girls possessed still a great
chunk of the original super brain (compare the Denisova cave etc) so
some of the kids produced with the blond giants turned up really smart.
Their smartness together with a strong physical constitution in a
sparsely populated river way landscape with small villages/camps
constituted an ideal environment for nomadic robbery. And after some
time some of these guys had collected enough financial and man power to
go further south. Klevius will in detail explain this development later.
Suffice to say that this is also the explanationary basis for why the
Goths from the north managed to conquer the whole of Europe.
Klevius Midsummer quiz: How come that Klevius can read Beowulf but modern Brits can not?!
Klevius question to BBC: Why so much focus on Muhammad and so little on Beowulf?
The epic poem Beowulf, the masterpiece of Anglo-Saxon literature, was
composed in pre-Viking time by an anonymous poet. It tells the story of a
Scandinavian hero whose feats include battles with the fearsome monster
Grendel and a fire-breathing dragon. It survives in a single manuscript
dating from around 1000 AD. In form (e.g. alliteration) and content it
follows much of the Finnish Kalevala (pictured below). Not the least as
how it's influenced by later Christian material.
The simple answer is that as a Finland-Swede Klevius happens to master
not only Swedish and Finnish but also old Finland-Swedish dialects - and
in an extension most old wordings based on Old Nordic (aka Old Norse)
over an area covering all the Nordic countries (incl. Gotland) plus
Netherlands, England, Scotland plus most of the north Atlantic islands east of Iceland.
In the 1990s when Klevius studied English at Stockholm University they
offered a video recording of a play based on thousand year old English
texts. To Klevius astonishment he immediately recognized many
familiarities with the East-Nyland dialects Klevius had grown up with.
So when two Norwegian linguists a couple of years ago stated that
English is a Scandinavian language Klevius applauded them.
So what does this have to do with Midsummer? Well, it's not just
linguistics but a load of other familiarities as well, not to mention
the fire feasts which may even be traced back to the Celts. And remember
that much/most pre-Christian cultural influences are shared within all
the Nordic countries.
For a background take a look at Kvenland:
Klevius defends Norway's right to a correct history writing on its National Day Syttende Mai
'Old Norse' and 'Norwegians' in the context of the Viking age are
completely misleading concepts because there was no Norwegian language
or Norwegians around during the Viking age!
Around the year 1000 A.D., two centuries of Viking
raids to southern and western areas of Europe tapered off following the adoption of Christianity
. Norway then expanded its overseas territories to parts of Great Britain
, the Faroe Islands, Iceland, and Greenland. Norwegian power peaked in 1265 before competition from the Hanseatic League
and the spread of the Black Death
weakened the country. In 1397, Norway became part of the Kalmar Union
with Denmark and Sweden. The Union lasted until Sweden left in 1523. The remaining union with Denmark
lasted nearly three centuries.
Klevius corrects: Replace 'Norwegians' with 'Finland-Swedes' or 'bilingual Finns'.
The looting of the monastery at Lindisfarne in Northeast England on 8
January 793 by ‘harrowing inroads of heathen men’ has long been
regarded as the event which marked the beginning of the Viking Age.
The Viking Age
was characterised by expansion and emigration by Viking
seafarers. According to tradition, Harald Fairhair
(Harald Hårfagre) unified them into one in 872 after the Battle of Hafrsfjord
thus becoming the first king of a united Norway. (The date of 872 may
be somewhat arbitrary. In fact, the actual date may be just prior to
Harald's realm was mainly a South Norwegian
coastal state. Harald Fairhair ruled with a strong hand and according
to the sagas, many Norwegians left the country to live in Iceland, the
Faroe Islands, Greenland, and parts of Britain and Ireland. The
modern-day Irish cities of Dublin
were founded by Norwegian settlers.
were slowly replaced by Christian ones
in the 10th and 11th centuries. This is largely attributed to the missionary kings Olav Tryggvasson
and St. Olav
. Haakon the Good
was Norway's first Christian king, in the mid-10th century, though his
attempt to introduce the religion was rejected. Born sometime in between
963–969, Olav Tryggvasson set off raiding in England with 390 ships. He
during this raiding. Arriving back in Norway in 995, Olav landed in
Moster. There he built a church which became the first Christian church
ever built in Norway. From Moster, Olav sailed north to Trondheim where
he was acclaimed King of Norway by the Eyrathing in 995.
never really developed in Norway and Sweden, as it did in the rest of
Europe. However, the administration of government took on a very
conservative feudal character. The Hanseatic League
forced the royalty to cede to them greater and greater concessions over
foreign trade and the economy. The League had this hold over the
royalty because of the loans the Hansa had made to the royalty and the
large debt the kings were carrying. The League's monopolistic control
over the economy of Norway put pressure on all classes, especially the
peasantry, to the degree that no real burgher class existed in
Klevius corrects: Lindisfarne occurred almost half a century after the
Viking age had already started from the Bay of Finland to Staraya Ladoga
(see map further down). A rudimentary Norway as a lose collection of
people who speak Norwegian can not be historically recognized before
long after the Viking age.
Harald Hårfagre; c. 850 – c. 932) was remembered by medieval historians as the first King of Norway.
According to traditions current in Norway and Iceland in the twelfth
and thirteenth centuries, he reigned from c. 872 to 930. Most of his
life remains uncertain, since the extant accounts of his life in the
sagas were set down in writing around three centuries after his
lifetime. A few remnants of skaldic praise poems attributed to
contemporary court poets exist which seem to refer to Harald's victories
against opponents in Norway. The information supplied in these poems is
inconsistent with the tales in the sagas in which they are transmitted,
and the sagas themselves often disagree on the details of his
background and biography. Two of his sons, Eric Bloodaxe and Haakon the Good, succeeded Harald to become kings after his death.
The only contemporary sources mentioning him are the two skaldic poems Haraldskvæði
, which have been attributed to Þorbjörn Hornklofi
or alternatively (in the case of the first poem) to Þjóðólfr of Hvinir
. The first poem has only been preserved in fragments in 13th century Kings' sagas
. It describes life at Harald's court, mentions that he took a Danish
wife, and that he won a battle at Hafrsfjord
. The second relates a series of battles Harald won.
His life is described in several of the Kings' sagas, none of them
older than 12th century. Their accounts of Harald and his life differ on
many points, and some of the content may be uncertain but it is clear
that in the 12th and 13th centuries Harald was regarded as having
unified Norway into one kingdom. Some modern historians have assumed
that his rule was limited to the coastal areas of southern Norway though
there is no contemporary evidence to support their
claim nor any other
concerning the life of Harald.
Klevius corrects: This is just biased mythology built on the false
construction of a "Norway" that didn't exist at the time! There were
'Northmen' - not Norwegians.
Norwegian (norsk) is a North Germanic language spoken primarily in
Norway, where it is the official language. Together with Swedish and
Danish, Norwegian forms a continuum of more or less mutually
intelligible local and regional variants.
These Scandinavian languages together with the Faroese language and
Icelandic language, as well as some extinct languages, constitute the
North Germanic languages (also called Scandinavian languages). Faroese
and Icelandic are hardly mutually intelligible with Norwegian in their
spoken form because continental Scandinavian has diverged from them.
According to runic inscriptions the Old Nordic language showed
remarkably little deviation between different regions. Runes had been in
use since at least the 2nd century. The oldest one so far being the
Finnish inscription on a comb found in Vimose, Denmark and dating to 160
Klevius Historia Finlandia
An extremely brief background/overview to why the early Finland-Swedes
came to conquer the world - twice (Goths, Vikings), or more
: It's extremely problematic and embarrassing for
Klevius as a Finland-Swede, and as a person who brags about
self-criticism being his main scientific tool, to end up with his own
ethnicity as having been a major global player in the past. However,
there are some mitigating excuses. So for example, what made some
Finland-Swedes to become Goths and Vikings etc. were not necessarily the
most sought after human characteristics. Moreover, those Finland-Swedes
who didn't participate became today's tiny and on the verge of
extinction Finland-Swedish community, linguistically bullied by the
Finns (language) as well as the Swedes (accent/dialects).
The oldest runic inscription is Finnish
This is the oldest runic inscription found. It says HARJA which is
exactly the same as 'harja', meaning comb or , brush or ridge, in modern Finnish.
The word is etymologically very old and had this Finnish form when the
comb was made, i.e. it cannot be confused with some non-Finnish
interpretation. Moreover, the word is found in all sister languages. The possibly related Baltic (or other) words do not
resemble it at all neither now nor back then. The comb was found in
Denmark and is dated to 160 CE (same time as the birth of Fornjotr, king
of Kvenland and Gotland).
! There are many confused "scientists" out there
emotionally trying to dismiss the Nordic origin of the Goths. I even
stumbled on one who thought that different spellings would mean
different groups. Spellings etc don't matter here. Just like 'Vikings' the 'Goths' is more of a concept than a
The name 'Goth' (in its many variants) reflects
the fact that it's not only thoroughly anchored in a Finnish-Old Nordic
geographical/linguistic area and context but also that Gothic is linguistically
puzzling if you don't see it as an Uralic colored form of Old Nordic.
Moreover, genetics is still in its cradle and hence an extremely fragile
tool. Only very crude main chronologies can so far be established and
even shallow dives result in progressive guesswork at best, no matter
how fancy math and graphs are produced. Klevius will explain more on
this exciting topic later.
To understand the confusing picture about Finnish-Old Nordic relations
that seems to emerge, one has to consider the relation between
Indoeuropean and Uralic/Finnish languages. Both groups stem from
geographically overlapping areas. However, whereas the former was more
sedentary and farming oriented the latter was more rooted in a
As we all know agricultural societies gathered more wealth and
population. So when they moved north the Germanic tribes tended to
follow a path more favorable for farming. This is how the linguistic map
evolved in northern Europe, divided between the Finnish related Sami,
Finns and Germanic tribes.

A brief history and pre-history of Kvenland - and the origin of the Vikings
Doggerlandians - the proto-Finnish/Uralic speaking true natives of Doggerland and Britain
: Due to the sad fact that, reportedly, some of Klevius'
readers are complaining over sores on their feet while trampling on
diamonds, the following guidelines may or may not deliver relief:
By 'Uralic' it's here, of course, meant the branch of the linguistic
tree that at its stem in time goes deeper than any language family based
on agriculture (and quite possibly the deepest of modern humans), and
geographically comprises an area (north and mid-Eurasia) that is bigger
than any other. The technical term 'proto-Uralic' doesn't mean that the
lineage abruptly started there but deepens into what might be called
Although the modern Finnish vocabulary may be one which contains among
the highest amount of loan-words, it also contains a remarkable old
kernel (some 200-300 words) that is not only immensely old but also
often reflects more exactly reconstructed "original" words in a way its
sister languages do not. This may be due to, among other factors, its
westernmost location (see Kvenland - the origin of the Goths)
From Ural to the Baltic Sea and Britain
(to really grasp the significance of this ancient water route please take a look at the islamic Origin of Vikings and Russia
Klevius intellectual bias warning
: There has been a severe
"mongoloid complex" (social, not genetic) going on for long in the
debate about the original Europeans, not the least among the Samis and
the Finns (see what Klevius wrote about the mongoloid complex
almost a decade ago). The Finns were introduced to "civilization" via
Klevius ethnic people, the Finland-Swedish "colonizers", who, after
Sweden's loss of Finland in the 1808-09 war, said "We aren't Swedes
anymore, and we don't wanna be Russians, so let's be Finns". So they
learned Finnish, many of them translated their Swedish names into
Finnish ones, and one of them gathered the ancient Finnish epic
Kalevala, all in an effort to strengthen the Finnish ethnicity.
Klevius brief intellectual aid to the background of the topic
Finnish and Sami researchers are possibly the least reliable (together
with Afro-centrists) when it comes to the "Urheima" of the Europeans. So
you will have a hard time finding info if you don't read Klevius. But
keep two basic facts in mind: Proto-Uralic was here before the farmers -
proto-Indo-European (PIE) was not, simply because it was tied to
farming/pastoralism. And ultimately, no matter if we call it
proto-Altaic or something else, what seems certain is that modern humans
and their language developed in the very midst of the mongoloid
hunting-gathering area (where the >41,000 BP Denisova bracelet below was
found), not among farmers.
Don't you think the producers of this bracelet were able to talk?!
This lion man appeared slightly later (40,000 bp) in Central Europe.
Background to the birth of modern humans (no dude, it's not "out-of-Africa" - sorry abt that)
Jinniushan and Floresiensis - the keys to Denisovan and the truly modern humans
Jinniushan had a bigger brain than anything in contemporary Africa
In Demand for Resources
(1992:28 ISBN 9173288411) in a chapter
about human evolution, Peter Klevius used only one example, the
remarkable Jinniushan skeleton/cranium:
In northern China near North Korean
border an almost complete skeleton of a young man who died 280,000
years ago. The skeleton was remarkable because its big cranial volume
(1,400cc) was not expected in Homo erectus territory at this early time
and even if classified as Homo sapiens it was still big. The
anatomically completely modern human brain volume is 1,400 cc and
appeared between 50-100,000 years ago. One may therefore conclude that
big brain volume by far predated more sophisticated human behavior
Today, when many believe the skeleton is female, the brain size becomes even more remarkable.
Since 1991 when Klevius wrote his book much new information has been
produced. However, it seems that the Jinniushan archaic Homo sapiens
still constitutes the most spectacular anomaly (together with Homo
floresiensis) in anthropology. So why did Klevius pick Jinniushan
instead of one of the more fashionable human remains? After all, Klevius
was a big fan of Rchard Leakey (he even interviewed him in a lengthy
program for the Finnish YLE broadcasting company) and there was a lot of
exciting bones appearing from the Rift Valley.
In the 1980s Klevius paid special attention to Australian aborigines and
African "bushmen" and noted that the latter were mongoloid in
appearance (even more so considering that todays Khoe-San/Khoisan are
heavily mixed with Bantu speakers). But mongoloid features are due to
cold adaptation in the north and therefore the "bushmen" had to be
related to Eurasia. Klevius soon realized that the Khoisan speakers had
moved to the southern Africa quite recently as a consequence of the so
called Bantu expansion. More studies indicated that the "bushmen" had
previously populated most of east Africa up to the Red Sea and beyond.
So the next step for Klevius was to search for early big skulled human
remains in the mongoloid northern part of Eurasia. And that search
really paid off.
This happened more than 20 years before the discovery of the Denisova bracelet and the human relative Denisovan in Altai.
book Demand for Resources (1992) in which these thoughts about
mongoloid traits were published also predates Floresiensis with more
than two decades.
Both fossils show clear cold adaptation (mongoloid) traits. However,
Jinniushan (right) is older and has a bigger cranial capacity although
Brown (world famous for discovering/defending Floresiensis in 2004 and
who had big trouble getting his PhD accepted because of a biased
supervisor/institution): What makes Dali, as well as Jinniushan (Lu,
1989; Wu, 1988a), particularly important is that both of their facial
skeletons are reasonably complete. This is an unusual situation in China
as the only other middle Pleistocene hominids to have faces in China
are the Yunxian Homo erectus (Li and Etler, 1992), which are both very
distorted. Originating in the pioneering research of Weidenreich (1939a,
1939b, 1943) at Zhoukoudian, there has been strong support by Chinese
Palaeoanthropologists for evolutionary continuity between Chinese H.
erectus and modern humans in China. It has been argued that this is most
clearly expressed in the architecture of the facial skeleton (Wolpoff
et al., 1984). East Asian traits have been argued to include lack of
anterior facial projection, angulation in the zygomatic process of the
maxilla and anterior orientation of the frontal process, pronounced
frontal orientation of the malar faces, and facial flatness. While some
of these traits may occur at high frequency in modern East Asians (cf
Lahr, 1996) they are not present in late Pleistocene East Asians, for
instance Upper Cave 101 and Liujiang (Brown, 1999), or more apparent in
Dali and Jinniushan than archaic H. sapiens from Africa or Europe.
Recently there has been a tendency to link a group of Chinese hominin
fossils, including Dali, Maba, Xujiayao, and Jinniushan, previously
considered by some researchers to be "archaic Homo sapiens", with the
Denisovians (Reich et al. 2010; Martinón-Torres et al. 2011)
However, apart from a few teeth, the Denisovians are only known from
palaeo DNA. There is also a great deal of anatomical variation in the
Chinese "archaic Homo sapiens" group. It will be interesting to see how
this plays out over the next decade, or so.
Klevius: It turns the conventional anthropological map on its head!
After the last ice age Doggerland still connected Uralic speaking
Sweden (and the Baltic Sea) with Britain a couple of thousands of years
before the arrival of farming. The oldest complete skeleton of a Brit
(the Cheddar man in Gough's Cave, outside Baath near Bristol) is from
Ago Künnap: From the Ukrainian refuge the people spread over the area
that eventually extended from the so-called North Sea Land on the site
of the present-day British Isles as far as the Urals. It should be
regarded as probable that the Uralic lingua franca was functioning in
the area also before the Last Glacial Maximum, consequently before the
people gathered in the refuges. It continued functioning in the
Ukrainian refuge and, in addition to this, also in the ice-free area,
creating a foundation by making languages into the present-day Uralic
languages. As a result of people’s spreading out from the larger refuges
the whole northward Europe was shared by the Basque and Uralic type of
Klevius: Today's Basques/Iberians have almost nothing to do with
Europe's original hunter-gatherers. Samis do. Geneticists have long
since proved that ice-age humans entered Europe from Siberia (haplogroup
M173 aka R), not Mideast. Linguists have proved that they spoke a
language related to Uralic. Many linguists have for long connected East
and West-Eurasia in the proto-Altaic language complex at the very spot
where geneticists see the splitting point that gave the birth to the
truly modern humans and real Aurignacian culture. Common sense does the
rest by considering the map, geography, food sources and the mix of
cold-adapted northern-most Neanderthals and Denisovans.
The mongoloid features of Sami people may be explained as follows (also
consider evolution map below): The first Europeans were a mix of
Mongoloid and Cro-Magnon traits due to the blend of Denisova and
northern Neanderthal traits with southern Homos. However, while
spreading southward, what we now call the Caucasoid traits (Klevius
"bastard belt") increased while the Mongoloid traits got stronger in the
north due to pressure from the east.
Cheddar man certainly didn't speak Indoeuropean
Cheddar man was found near Bristol in England. His Finnish/Sami type of
DNA closely matches contemporary Brits near the location where the
skeleton was found. And the amber found beside him came from the Baltic
Cheddar man stature is estimated to 166 cm and he has a relatively high
(compared to modern Sami but not to modern Finns) crural index and
tibial length/trunk height indices but a total morphological pattern
considered cold-adapted. This mix is in line with Klevius Out of Africa as pygmies and back as global mongoloids
theory, which states that human like Homos what we used to think of as
our predecessors were, in fact, big brained but dumb non-humans, and
that the smart ones were small ape-like creatures (Floresiensis, Red
Deer Cave people, Denisovans etc) who in Euraisa mixed with Neanderthals
and later on with the southern Homos from whom we didn't get our
intelligence but only part of our physical appearance (in fact, we
started loosing intelligence and are now on a much lower level than some
30,000 years ago - just compare the stunning performance of Aurignacian
art below). So for example, what has "puzzled" fossilized academics the
most about the tiny ape-like Floresiensis with a brain size barely
exceeding that of a Chimp, is how to explain its tools, use of fire etc.
Compared to many presumptuous and subjective PC academics Klevius' theory has a much better fit to existing evidence out there.
Doggerland and a harpoon found in it.
Altough the historical Goths emerge some 7,000 years later it's worth
mentioning that Gotland in the Baltic Sea was already populated more
than 9,500 years ago. Moreover, although no one knows the true
origin of the name Gotland and Goth confusing efforts have been made to
connect the origin of the name to different and less likely later forms
such as e.g. 'gut' and 'jut'. Due to an enormous general ignorance
there thrives a bias that could be described as a majority complex which
blurs topics of evolution and linguistics etc. by covering them under
the "Out of Africa" or the "Indo-European" or the "monotheist" blanket.
This type of prejudice is easily seen when you, for example, tell an
English speaker that the word 'boy' comes from the Finnish/Uralic
'poika'. In fact, if we really start digging we will soon realize that
most of the really old Indo-European words can be traced to the original
Uralic speaking inhabitants of Europe. Btw, on Gotland 'peika' mens a
girl and became maid ('piga') in Swedish. Just like the English word for child that transformed into 'girl'.
Today we know that both genetics and linguistics connect pre
proto-Uralic throughout the entire northern Eurasia. The Mal'ta boy
(26,000bp) as well as the still existing Yukaghirs share common roots.
Cheddar man has been genetically tested as belonging to haplogroup U5a
which happens to be most common today in northern Finland and
Scandinavia among Sami people and, to a lesser extent, among Finns.
Haplogroup U5 is spread all over Europe but is by far best presented
among Finnish speaking populations in the north. That U5 is also found
in North-Africa is in line with the mixing theory below. U5a is a
latecomer and hence fits a pattern of increasing blend of genes along
the Atlantic coastline. U5b is also toprated among Samis as is V.
At this time all hunter-gatherers in mid/northern (and possibly
sourhern) Europe talked an Uralic language. Uralic languages preceeded
Indo-European and Finno-Ugric languages and, according to linguistics,
is today best survived in the Finnish* language. It is important here to
realize that proto-Sami people populated all of the fringes of glacial
and post-glacial Europe and that Basque language most probably was Sami
related although heavily distorted by incoming linguistically
non-related farmers, whereas the northern Sami became influenced by
related Finnish speakers, hence explaining why today's Sami sounds so
Finnish and Basque doesn't sound Finnish at all although it has many
features in common with Uralic/Finnish languages.
* As Klevius has pointed out for
decades, in Finnish (as in most other languages) there is no sex
segregation. A person is 'hän' regardless of sex, not the stupid he/she
apartheid Europe has inherited from sexist Mideastern "monotheisms".
To PC-people and others with a racist agenda blurring the facts:
Non-African art from 41,000 - 25,000 years ago - i.e. long before
anything like this emerged in Mideast or Africa! And one thing is for
certain, they weren't neolithic farmers!
So why is it so important to emphasize this? Because no one seems to be
interested in this hereto the most exciting artifact ever found on the
planet! And why is that? Because of political correctness and
Afrocentrism that blurs simple logic that a child would have no problem
This extremely complicated to manufacture stone bracelet was made by the
non-human Denisovan (or whatever we should call the hybrid that paved
the way for modern humans - the process may have taken a long time at
and around Altai) in Siberia 40,000 years ago by utilizing a drilling
technology, comparable to modern machines, according to the researchers
who found it.
Dolní Věstonice, Central-Europe, an extremely well sculptured portrait
is dated to 26-29,000 years ago, i.e. even earlier than the Brassempouy
"Venus" portrait below, which was found in Mid-France.
Brassempouy "Venus" approx 26,000 BP

From the left: Red Deer Cave, Sami, Cro-Magnon
First and third from the left are Red Deer Cave people 14,300-11,500 years ago

France 25-26,000 years ago. The last pic is a reconstruction of a 1.9
Million year old Homo rudolfiensis skull. They all had flat broad
cheeks, no chin and rounded forehead.
Do note that Well's dates on the map below are no longer valid and
should only be read relatively. So for example, is the Ust-Ishim man's
genome (located between Denisova and Fennoscandia) securely dated to at
least 45,000 bp.
Do note that the dates on the map are outdated - the genome of the
oldest modern human is 45,000bp and comes from Ust-Ishim located midways
between Finland and the Denisova cave.
Klevius notes: The Hofmeyr skull represents the "roaming Homo",
and despite no advanced tool etc culture, is large in relation to that
of modern African males, with prominent supraorbital structures and a
robust face. Morphometric analysis places Hofmeyr within the range of
recent humans and close to those associated with Upper Paleolithic
industries in Eurasia.
The fact that Northern Neanderthals, with whom the Denisovans interbred,
differ genetically from southern Neanderthals fits Klevius theory that
there was a double mixing going on: One that created the modern humans
in the north and an other on the way down.
From Altai to Gotland, Sami, God, Vikings, Shakespeare and Tolkien
Klevius etymology and history remarks relating to the Britain-Scandinavia connection
The ancient Persian (which is extremely young compared to Uralic) word
for god 'khoda' connects to the even more ancient Finnish 'koti' and
Finno-Ugric 'kota' (=home/house/seed vessel - see Klevius definition of religion
and the Vagina gate), Saami 'goahti'. German Gott (god) and Swedish
gott (good) as well as Gotland (pronounced Gottland), the island in the
Baltic sea that constituted a (the?) main Viking hub in their slave
trade with Jews and muslims.
Gotland in particular is famous as the probable ancestral home of the
Goths: "a Gothic population had crossed the Baltic Sea before the 2nd
century AD, reaching Scythia at the coast of the Black Sea in modern
Ukraine where Goths left their archaeological traces in the Chernyakhov
culture. In the 5th and 6th centuries, they became divided as the
Visigoths and the Ostrogoths, and established powerful successor-states
of the Roman Empire in the Iberian peninsula and Italy. Crimean Gothic
communities appear to have survived intact in Crimea until the late
Hamlet was aGoth
The father of Shakespeare's prototype for Hamlet was a Goth from the
Gothenburg area in Sweden (were Klevius father also happened to be
born). These Goths came originally from Gotland via those very same
waterways that were shaped already some 9,000 years ago, hence
connecting the Baltic Sea with Doggerland/North Sea.
Gotland was also the home port and treasure island for the Vikings
because it naturally connected West and East via Staraja Ladoga
southeast of Finland on the river way down to the south. Gotland has
revealed the biggest hoards of Viking age old Arab/islamic silver coins
in Northern Europe.
Immediately north of Staraja Ladoga is the homeland of the Finnish national epic Kalevala which Tolkien based his writing on.
The world's oldest fishing net is found in southeastern Finland and is
some thousand years older than Cheddar man the "oldest Brit".
Bromme culture existed in what is today's Sweden already 11,700–11,000 bp.
As a curiosity it might be noted that film director Ingmar Bergman lived
most of his life on Gotland where some of his most powerful movies
In conclusion one might well argue that the Baltic Sea has been a main hub since the birth of modern humans.

Finland/Kvenland - the home of Kalevala and the Vikings
Finland has two official languages, Swedish and Finnish. Finland is also
one of the most secularized countries in the world. Finland (and huge
parts of what is now Sweden and Norway) was Kvenland before the
Christian crusades after which it became connected as part of Sweden for
some 600 years until the 1808-9 war against Russia after which Finland
became an autonomous Grand Duchy in the Russian Empire until Finland's
independence 6, December 1917.
After the 1808-9 war the Swedish speaking intellectuals started a
campaign, "we are no Swedes anymore, and we don't wanna be Russians - so
let's be Finns". This strive made many a Finland-Swede translate their
name into Finnish. It also resulted in the collection of the Kalevala
epos (which Tolkien used as a basis for his stories). However, Elias
Lönnroth's Kalevala was heavily influenced by a monotheist
understanding. Luckily Juha Pentikäinen and others have now initiated a
rewriting of the text clean from Christian monotheist influences.
Due to its location Finnish (and Saami) possesses extremely old words
still in use (see below). And due to the interaction between old Nordic
and Finnish a pattern emerged that can still be seen stretching from
Finland all the way to Iceland (see below).
No one knows the true origin of the name Kvenland. However, Klevius
qualified guess is based on its history of Nordic (and Finnish) speaking
(agrarian) coastal Finns robbing beautiful girls with mongoloid
characteristics (which pattern you can also trace in reading Kalevala)
from its Saami and Finnish speaking neighbors. Raids with light boats
was a Finnish specialty inherited from the Finnish and Russian water
ways they still frequented (see Origin of Vikings
And when they heard (from the Volga Bolgars and the Jewish Khazars etc)
about the enormous demand and price the muslim caliphate paid for these
kind of girls the commerce quickly changed from furs to walking girls.
Due to the mix of old Nordic speaking males and Finnish speaking women
an early bilingual traditon was born, which helped dealing with both
Swedes and Finnish speaking "Russians". At the beginning of the Viking
age the "Russians" spoke Finnish which was the main language in what is
now northern and mid Russia. This also explains how Fornjotur could be
the King of both Finland and Gotland as well as how Rus could become so
friendly with the pre-Russians that they asked him for protection
against other Vikings, Jews (Khazars) etc.
Finland has for long suffered from what Klevius calls a mongoloid complex (2003)
. In 1952, only seven years after the end of
Finland's disastrous connection with Germany in the World War 2, apart
from having its first Olympics the nation celebrated the 17-year old
Armi Kuusela's victory in the Miss Universe "beauty" contest, thus
finally releasing the Finns from what was considered a traumatic
connection with the East and its Russian/mongoloid inhabitants.
The tiny (some 300,000) Finland-Swedish ethnic minority has, apart from
the tiresome, bragging and annoying islamophobe named Klevius, produced
such names as Edith Södergran (modernist poet), Westermarck
(anthropology), Jean Sibelius (music), Georg Henrik von Wright
(Wittgenstein's successor), Lasse Wiren (athletics - double-double
Olympic winner on 5,000m and 10,000m), Lindberg (music - Kraft etc),
Linus Thorvald (Linux), etc etc.
This list clearly implies a Finland-Swedish complex or something (see Inside Klevius mind
Why surprised about the fact that English is a Nordic language? Klevius has informed about it for almost a decade on the web!
* When Klevius shakes hand with native
English speakers he loves to point out that 'finger', 'hand', and 'arm'
all are Swedish words with exactly the same spelling and not too different pronunciation.
This usually produces a nice "really". However, when he also points out
that most of the non-Latin words in English also are Swedish a brief
uncertain and incredulous retreat from the topic is noticeable. And, now
finally the self-evident fact that even grammar is equal has been pointed out even by others.
English is a Scandinavian/Nordic (Fennoscandian*) language
No one knows for how long Old Swedish/Nordic language(s) has been
spoken in Finland. This is why not only the Scandinavian part but the whole
Fennoscandian peninsula ought to be included.
Jan Terje Faarlund
, professor of linguistics at the University of
Oslo. "Obviously there are many English words that resemble
ours. But there is something more: its fundamental structure is
strikingly similar to Norwegian.
(who understands all Nordic languages incl. Finnish and
most dialects): Norwegian language emerged after the Viking period (see Origin of Vikings
Its predecessor, i.e. what is called "Old Norse" but perhaps rather
should be called Old Swedish or Old Nordic, is rooted in Kvenland from
the cross pollination of Finnish and Nordic Germanic. Kvenish today is
still very close to Finnish (more so than e.g. Estonian) yet it also
contains such pecularities as meiðän ('our') which is simply meidän in

etc, is an ancient name for an area in Fennoscandia
Compare Swedish 'Kvinna' (woman) and English 'Queen' as well as
Norwegian 'kone' (woman) Swedish 'kön' (sex) and English 'kin' (yes, we
have Indoeuropean 'gen' but so what, where did 'gen' emerge?).
There exists a persistent "wikimyth" that Finnish language in Sweden and
Norway are just a few hundred years old when in fact it's thousands of
years old but due to national romanticism was explained away as caused
by late immigration only.
As I already said, no one knows for sure why it was called Kvenland.
However, a strong hypothesis is that the name reflects sex-slave hunt
for beautiful white girls/women who were most valued on the muslim slave
markets by the islamic mosques. So the Finnish empire may have existed
long before it was called Kvenland.The name was just applied from the
outside as a marker of its notorious records.
Kvenland appears in written sourdes from the 9th century, and from Icelandic sources written
in the 12th and 13th centuries. Since the 17th century most historians
have located Kvenland somewhere around or near the Bothnian Bay
, in the present-day regions of Swedish Norrbotten
and Finnish Ostrobothnia
as well as part of Norway where there are still a Kvenish population. The traditional East Finnish name of this area was Kainuu
, and it has been suggested that the Scandinavian name of Kvenland and Kainuu share etymological roots.
Around 890 CE a Northman named Ohthere
visited King Alfred of Wessex
who had his stories written down by Orosius
According to Ohthere, the Norðmanna land was very long
and very narrow ... and to the east are wild mountains, parallel to the
cultivated land. Finnas inhabit these mountains ... Then along this land southwards, on the other side of the mountain, is Sweden
... and along that land northwards, Kvenland (Cwenaland). The Kvens
(Cwenas) sometimes make depredations on the Northmen over the mountain,
and sometimes the Northmen on them.
There are large [freshwater] meres
amongst the mountains,
and the Kvens carry their ships over land into the meres, and thence
make depredations on the Northmen; they have small and very

the myth about Mohammed (who was allegedly born 400 years later). Hugh

(the ruler of the sea), Logi
(fire giant) and Kári (god of wind).
The name has often been interpreted as forn-jótr
"ancient giant", and sometimes identified with the primeval giant Ymir
But it is also possible, as was suggested by Müller (1818), that it is
one of a well-established group of names or titles of gods in -njótr
"user, owner, possessor", which would make Fornjótr the "original owner".
How did primary stress on first syllable come from Kvenland to Iceland?
There was of course another language, Kvenish-Finnish, that was present
in Fennoscandia and somehow influenced the ancient Norse language.
Finnish possesses some of the oldest words in the world, some of them
still in their original Uralic form. In fact, the old Finnish stem seems
to be closer to its distant roots than other Finno-Ugric languages
despite the fact that Finland has been the most modernized of them all.
Klevius linguistic question: How was the strange affinity between
Indoeuropean Icelandic and Uralic Finnish created between Kvenland and
Whereas Indoeuropean languages are strongly rooted in a Neolithic
agricultural past Uralic languages are rooted in hunting/gathering
societies i.e. pre-Neolithic.
Indoeuropean Old Norse developed into "Western" and "Eastern" variants. Western Norse
covered Norway and overseas settlements in Iceland, Greenland, the
Faroe Islands and the Shetland Islands, while Eastern Norse developed in
and south-central Sweden
and coastal Finland.
The language of Iceland and the non Finnish or Saami Fennoscandia was practically the same up until
the 14th century, when they started to deviate from each other.
During the late Old
Norse period and this period there was also a considerable adoption of Middle Low German
vocabulary. Similar development in grammar and phonology happened in Swedish and Danish, keeping the dialect continuum
in continental Scandinavia intact, but with greater dialectal
variation. This process did not, however, occur in the same way in Faroese
These languages remain conservative to this day, when it comes to
grammar and vocabulary, so mutual intelligibility with continental
Scandinavia was lost.
The Uralic languages belong to a single Eurasian belt of agglutinative
languages together with the Altaic languages streching from Fennoscandia
in the west to Japan in the east
Not only typological parallelism, but also stress on the first syllable
as well as lack of third person pronoun sex segregation (e.g. Finnish
'hän' instead of 'he/she' apartheid) is accompanied by areal adjacency,
allowing us to speak of a distinct Ural-Altaic language area and
language type we may call Eurasiatic.
Some roots for Eurasiatic: mi (what?, mi/kä or mi/tä in modern Finnish),
pälä (two), akʷā (water), tik (one or finger), konV (arm 1), bhāghu(s)
(arm 2), bük(ä) (bend or knee), punče (hair), p'ut'V (vagina or vulva),
snā (smell or nose), kamu (seize or squeeze), and parV (the verb to fly)
Modern Finnish preserves old words equal or almost equal more often than other languages

The reconstructed vocabulary is compatible with a Mesolithic culture
(bow, arrow, needle, sinew, but also rope, fence, cradle, ski), a north
Eurasian landscape (spruce, birch, Siberian pine), and contains
interesting hints on kinship structure.
The Vikings were bilingual (Finland-Swedes) Goths who could communicate
both with the Finnish tribes as well as with the old Nordic/German
In the Viking world the Jewish slave empire (Chazaria) played an
important role in establishing the slave raid and trade system that
served the enormous islamic hunger for white sex slaves.
Karelia's old coat of arms.
Karelia bordered the medieval Novgorod republic which was ransacked by
muslim Bolgars who hunted for slaves. The southern part became an
important hub in the islamic slave finance as Vikings and Kazar Jews etc

In 882, Rurik's successor, Oleg of Novgorod, conquered Kiev and founded the state of Kievan Rus.
After the Kievan Russian state began to disintegrate in 1132, slaves
became much more numerous as inhabitants of neighboring East Slavic
principalities (much of the territory between Poland-Lithuania and the
Volga River) became fair game for enslavement.
Jewish merchants took East Slavic slaves from Novgorod to western
destinations. Other East Slavic slaves were continuously "harvested" by
the Turkic peoples (Tatars) inhabiting the southern and eastern
frontiers of Rus' and subsequently sold to buyers mainly in the Arab
The Mongol invasions into Rus' from 1236-1240 accelerated the disintegration of Kievan Rus' that had commenced in 1132.
Continuous Tatar slave raids replaced those of the pre-1240 Turkic
peoples who had roamed the Ukranian steppe. In these centuries the word
"slave" was borrowed from the ethnonym "Slav."
During the ensuing period of the "Tatar yoke" (1237-1480), the export of
slaves through Novgorod continued and the Novgorodian slave market at
the intersection of Slave and High Streets was the most active business
locale in the entire Republic of Novgorod, which encompassed much of
Russia north of the Volga to the White Sea.
The Crimean Tatars had converted to islam in the 1300s and in 1475 the
Crimean Khanate became a protectorate of the Ottoman Empire while itself
still clinging to power over the Duchy of Muscovy. In 1480, the
Muscovites threw off the "Tatar Yoke" and began the unification of
Russia under Slavic rulers. By 1503, those rulers would declare Russia
the Third Roman Empire, and take the title of Tsar.
The Crimean Tatars made use of their strategic position between the
Ottomans and the Russians and supplied slaves for the Ottoman Janissary
corps from the neighboring peoples to an enormous extent yet to be fully
Greedy rulers either married a muslim and naively agreed* to convert or
just found islam the perfect sword for evil but profitable slave finance
* Islam is an evil dead end. A
totalitarian harpoon that has only one direction unless it's stopped.
This is one of the many reasons why islam is completely out of sync with
Human Rights - a fact that not only Klevius but also OIC has realized!
Little is known about the timeline of the islamization of Inner Asia and
the Turkic peoples who lay beyond the bounds of the caliphate. Around
7th century and 8th century, there were some states of Turkic peoples
like Turkic Khazar Khaganate and Turkic Turgesh Khaganete who fought
against the caliphate in order to stop Arabization and islamization in
Asia. From the 9th century onwards, the Turks (at least individually, if
not yet through adoption by their states) began to convert to islam.
The Bulgars of the Volga, to whom the modern Volga Tatars trace their
islamic roots, are noted to have adopted islamic evil early on. When the
Friar William of Rubruck visited the encampment of Batu Khan of the
Golden Horde, who had recently completed the Mongol invasion of Volga
Bulgaria, he noted "I wonder what devil carried the law of Machomet
Different political functions of the islamic myth to legitimate power
Quite contrary to the populist academic discourse that within an islamic
worldview, the production of "eventually" correct ritual behavior can
be a gateway for "the grace of Allah" to produce "correct belief", the
crude reality of islam's own tenets points clearly - and without the
slightest anomaly from non-islamic history in sight - to a profitable
parasitic formula crudely chiseled on pre-existing Judaic dogmas. This
formula, which in one sweep eliminates otherwise "puzzling" historical
events, goes like this (taken from www.klevius.info):
The root formula of Islam (Klevius 2001)
Slavery+"infidel" racism+sex segregated rapetivism+anti human rights Sharia/apostasy ban.
Why isn't the worst crime ever against humanity criminalized, but instead protected by the very Human Rights islam opposes?!
Converts to islam don't have to understand anything to be a "good
muslim" simply because accepting totalitarian islam is the only proof
needed. However, other muslims might not approve of it...
