The mysterious lost white people of the canary islands

Post  guest .. on Sat Feb 11, 2012 3:06 am

The mystery of the Guanches

The
Guanches, who were invaded and conquered by the Spanish, are believed
by many to be descendants of the Berbers from North Africa because they
were known to be white-skinned, often with blonde hair and blue eyes.
How they arrived on the islands is another mystery because they did not
use boats.
Other people who believe in Atlantis
have put forward the idea that the Guanches were Atlantean descendants
or even actual survivors. James Churchward who had a series of
controversial books published in the early 1930s starting with The Lost Continent of Mu produced a map showing clearly that where the Canary Islands are today Atlantis once was.
That
the Guanches were familiar with the pyramid shape is shown by designs
on artistic seals known as pintaderas that have been found, and are
thought to have been used for body painting. The Guanches also used to
practice mummification of their dead, which, of course, is a practice
the Egyptians also used.
Thor Heyerdahl speculated that
the pyramids were astronomically aligned and showed evidence for his
theory that the pyramids were used for ceremonies at times of the year
such as the summer solstice. It is accepted by archaeologists that the Guanches lived in and used the area of Güímar and proof of this has been found in caves

interesting, I have been to tenerife many times and have never seen any tours that mention this place. Shame really its the sort of thing I would have liked to spend a day on.

there is also the Island of La Gomera just off Tenerife where the farmers there have a whistling language.

They seem to be a aryian master race, capable of bulding incredible pyramids and possible creators of Atlantis.
