‘aryan’ Theory Called False by Elliot Smith

Download PDF for this date

The “Aryan” theory and all its implications were denounced as fallacies today at the opening of the first international congress on anthropology and enthology which opened in the presence of important officials of the British government.

Professor Elliot Smith of the Royal Institute, who delivered the opening address, declared that the world’s culture is due to Jewish influence and the so-called “Aryan” primitive culture was borrowed from Babylon and was due to Jewish influence.

He also stated the European renaissance of the Middle Ages was due to the fact that Jewish scholarship had acted as an intermediary between Spain and the ancient Greek world in the Eastern Mediterranean, where civilization originated.
