2. Ancient Ireland: Prehistoric gold source traced to Mourne mountains

THE MOUNTAINS of Mourne [southeast of Belfast, Ulster] may be fabled in song but now they have a new focus as scientists believe they were the source for most of Ireland's prehistoric gold.

Ireland has a very high level of prehistoric gold objects especially from the early Bronze Age (2400-1800BC) when large quantities of it was used by skilled craftsmen.

They turned out beautiful objects such as the gold collars or lunula similar to the one which turned up recently following a robbery in Co Roscommon.

This led to speculation for centuries about the source of so much easily available gold and a belief there had to be lots of gold available locally to the craftsmen.

Now archaeologists and geologists believe they have found that source, following a 14-year study which used not only the most modern scientific equipment but also involved the teams using primitive gold-mining methods.

According to a report in the current edition of Archaeology Ireland, the scientists used X-ray fluorescence spectrometry to look at the silver content of prehistoric Irish gold in more than 400 objects. As that work was going on, others were literally out panning for gold in Irish rivers, walking the mountains looking for gold in the hills and extracting gold from rocks by fire, as prehistoric people would have done.

The teams even extracted gold from rocks on Croagh Patrick, Co Mayo, by heating and quenching the rock, crushing it and panning the resultant sand.

The scientific work found the average silver content of gold in the early Bronze Age ornaments was 10 per cent and this matched perfectly the profile of gold taken from the river Bann and its tributaries but not that of gold taken from other Irish sources.

The scientific work on gold recovered from artefacts matched because gold grains from areas of high gold abundance invariably exhibit a distinct compositional signature, said the report.

The authors of the report, Richard Warner, Bob Chapman, Mary Cahill and Norman Moles, said the dearth of of early Bronze Age ornaments from the area itself should not affect their conclusions.

"It is a great satisfaction to be able to suggest, with solid evidence, that the Irish early Bronze Age ornaments were not only made of Irish gold but probably of gold from Co Down's Mourne Mountains," it concluded.

3. German Demographic Changes After WW2
More out of curiosity the lists below discuss German demographic changes.
Due to WW2 and the subsequent changes in cultural values etc the German People as it existed in ca. 1939 will have been cut in half!
Much of the change is due to immigration of Muslim foreigner, native Germans not wanting to have children,  and a culture of social selfishness
that is against having children.

German WW2 Casualties Some Figures
German War losses
military deaths 5,553,000
Civilian deaths 1540,000
Human losses 8.6% of population
Austria 5.5%
Ethnic Germans of other Nations 10.8%
German civilian deaths due to the expulsion of Germans after World War II are not included with World War Two Casualties. A 1958 West German government study estimated 2.3 million civilians perished during the post war expulsions.[83,26] However, R diger Overmans points out that there are only about 500,000 confirmed deaths of German civilians in eastern Europe, the balance being a demographic estimate, Overmans believes that new research on the number of expulsion deaths is needed.[6,298-299][76]. A more recent study published by the German government in 1989 estimated the civilian death toll at about 635,000. (270,000) killed during the 1945 campaign in eastern Europe ,(160,000) during the expulsion of Germans after World War II and (205,000) in the Forced labor of Germans in the Soviet Union [82,19]
Additional post war famine deaths in occupied Germany of 250,000 [3,43] are also not included with World War Two Casualties. In Allied occupied the Germany shortage of food was an acute problem according to Alan S. Milward in 1946?47 the average kilocalorie intake per day was only 1,080, an amount insufficient for long-term health. [101]
^ A preliminary estimate of war dead in 1949 by the West German government for the population in the borders of 1937 Germany only, was 3,250,000 military dead and missing plus 500,000 dead and 1,533,000 missing civilians[30,1949-8/226]. In 1956 these figures were revised; 3,760,000 military dead and missing, 410,000 civilians killed by Strategic bombing and 1,260,000 civilians killed in the expulsions from Poland.[30,1956-10/494]. These figures were for Germany in 1937 borders only and did not include additional losses from Austria (280,000 military and 24,000 civilians); ethnic Germans from eastern Europe (432,000 military and 886,000 civilians killed in expulsions); and 60,000 military deaths of men from France and western Europe. Total 4,530,000 for entire German Armed Forces and 2,556,000 civilians[31,111-129].
i.e. ca. 7 million maybe 8.

Caused death of ca. 6 million Jews.

World War II casualty statistics vary greatly. Estimates of total dead range from 50 million to over 70 million.[36] The sources cited on this page document an estimated death toll in World War II of roughly 73 million, making it the deadliest war ever. Civilians killed totaled around 47 million, including 20 million from war-related disease and famine. Total military dead: about 25 million, including deaths in captivity of about 4 million prisoners of war. Axis dead: approximately 11 million; Allied dead: about 61 million.

The population of Germany is approximately 82,220,000, making it the 14th most populous country in the world. Germany's population is characterized by zero or declining growth [1], with an aging population and smaller cohort of youths.

More than 16 million people are of non-German descent (first and second generation, including mixed heritage), about seven million of which are foreign residents. The largest ethnic group of non-German origin are the Turkish.,2576/Demographic-change.htm
The forecast predicts that even with 200,000 immigrants a year, Germany's population will shrink from today's 82.5 to 75 million by 2050.

German Population Plunge "Irreversible," Federal Stats Office Admits
Expected that one third of all European children will be born to Muslim families by 2025
By Gudrun Schultz
BERLIN, Germany, November 9, 2006 ( - Germany?s downward spiral in population is no longer reversible, the country?s federal statistics office said Tuesday. The birthrate has dropped so low that immigration numbers cannot compensate.

"The fall in the population can no longer be stopped," vice-president Walter Rademacher with the Federal Statistics Office said, reported Agence France-Presse.

Germany has the lowest birthrate in Europe, with an average of 1.36 children per woman. Despite government incentives to encourage larger families, the population is dropping rapidly and that trend will continue, with an expected loss of as much as 12 million by 2050. That would mean about a 15 percent drop from the country?s current population of 82.4 million, the German news source Deutsche Welle reported today.

The low birthrate will cause the German population to age dramatically over the next 40 years--last year there were 144,000 more deaths than births, and that number could increase to 600,000 by 2050, the FSO forecast stated.

With a 22 percent reduction in the workforce and increasing costs for senior assistance and medical care, the drop in population is expected to have a radical impact on the nation?s economy, along with the welfare budget.

Germany has one of the largest populations of Muslim immigrants in Western Europe, with a Muslim community of over 3 million. That trend is expected to continue, leading some demographic trend-watchers to warn that the country is well on the way to becoming a Muslim state by 2050, Deutsche Welle reported.

The Brussels Journal reported last month that one third of all European children will be born to Muslim families by 2025. There are an estimated 50 million Muslims living in Europe today--that number is expected to double over the next twenty years.

The population losses faced by Germany reflect a trend occurring across Europe--The European Union?s statistics agency Eurostat has predicted an overall drop in Europe?s population of 7 million people by 2050.

The demographic decline coincides with a dramatic drop in Christian religious belief and a consequent rejection of Christian morality and emphasis on the benefits of family life and children.

Present population of 82 million expected to fall to 75 million by 2050.
ca. 1870 German Empire ca. 41 million
1914 68 million
1939 ca. 80 million by 2050 expected to be ca. 75 million but as many as 50% (or even more?) of them will not be of the same Germanic stock as existed in 1939!

How Much Demographic Harm Did the Germans to the Jews?
Before WW2 ca. 18 million
After WW2 ca. 12 million
ca. 2009 ca. 14 million of which 6 million were in Israel.
[Jews in Israel have tendency over time to become more religious and to have larger families
or at the least the social attitudes and ideological-communal "infrastructure" exists for an over-night reversal
of secularization processes.]
Jewish Demographic loss caused by low birth rates, abortions, assimilation, etc.
Jews in Europe before WW2 (according to some observers) were on their way to becoming entirely non-religious and assimilated.
Number of abortions in the State of Israel has exceeded the number of children murdered by the Nazis.
