Leonard Da Vinci: I knew my thumbprint
would come in handy for future generations
This is a pleasure to write about, a true Western treasure is rediscovered to be the genious that he was through the use of his own thumbprint. Fjordman stated to the Tundra Tabloids while discussing this rare find that: “History isn’t bunk, that’s an exceptionally stupid and dangerous idea.”
How true. Just like a ship at sea, the keeping of its course straight is a constant exercise, it demands diligence and a watchful eye. That’s where many well meaning people get it all wrong. An excellent, but undisturbed history book sitting on a dusty book shelf has no chance in correcting faulty “common knowledge”, any more than a dusty sheepskin copy of the US Constitution will keep its citizens free if left unheeded.
Anything worthwhile, like defending the liberty and freedom of the individual from tyranny, or the teaching of the Jewish, Armenian and Ukrainian Holocausts, demands a concerted effort in ensuring each and every generation knows the true history of it, nothing else but consistent diligence will suffice. That’s why it’s necessary to highlight incidents like this verification of the painting of Da Vinci to be a self portrait, because it verifies and strengthens the existing recorded history of the man. It’s all true.
Fjordman goes on further to add:
“We are not like the peoples of the desert, who believe that Allah has already decided everything that happens in your life. Allah hasn’t decided anything; there is no Allah. We should also reject the Marxists, who once believed that the Communist society was “inevitable,” and now believe that the Multicultural society is “inevitable.” They were wrong then, and they are wrong now. There is no fate. European man shapes his own destiny.”
In shaping Western destiny, it’s imperative that the factual historical record be laid bare for all to see, void of politicizing and agenda, with the truth naked to the eye. As Fjordman alluded to earlier, I expound upon further; The utopian mind believes that “utopia is inevitable and thus history is immaterial, because the destruction of history for the obtaining of something better, is an acceptable and preferable trade off, besides they’ll in due course remake the past to fit the present”.
But there is no such thing as utopia and neither is anything inevitable, anything and everything worthwhile is wrought through the persistence and tenacity of human endeavor, that is why the historical record is of such importance. For the non-utopian, building upon the existing historical record with the hope of achieving something better is the preferred method, while the utopians seek to destroy not only what exists, but what has existed as well in the insane attempt to obtain the unattainable.

CALGARY — The portrait of a middle-aged man — an oil-on-wood painting once used as a serving tray — is likely the image of Leonardo da Vinci done by the master himself, says a panel of experts that includes a Calgary art historian.
A dozen of scientists and David Bershad, an art history professor at St. Mary’s University College, agree. The image of a man with blue eyes, long greying hair and a moustache appears to be a self-portrait of the renowned Renaissance artist, inventor and thinker.
Coming to that conclusion brought together da Vinci’s own passions for art and science as experts used fingerprint analysis, carbon dating and even facial reconstruction software to answer three key questions:
– Does the painting date from the right time period?
– Is it a portrait of da Vinci?
And, was it painted by the master himself?
“I believe it’s a Leonardo,” Bershad said Tuesday, the day after returning from Italy, where he was able to look at the portrait in person. “It’s exciting to come to that conclusion.”
