Has not the system of agnostic learning been set up by a European bias?

Is not it in our (non-European) interest to seek out alternative ways of looking at things that have been overlooked out of bias or hatred?

Is it not true that many of the historical and "official" documents most scholars use to base their work presently based off the "recognized" scholarship of those in the past with a consistent bias?

If I am wrong forgive me..... I do earnestly seek truth......

However, it is a little troubling to me that bias is often used against anyone that questions (even with hubris) the status quo.... and the status quo happens to maintain a history that is biased..... against us.....

I see nothing wrong with investigating..... sincerely..... and questioning..... and re-evaluating..... but we all bring biases to whatever we do..... that doesn't mean I don't believe in objective research.......

it simply means that as far as I can tell, historically many new theories were challenged as crackpot, having ulterior motives, or plain unscientific (or un-whatever the standard measuring bearer was at the time)--especially in European history........

I guess...... I find it interesting that a word like Amen that has been translated in different languages....... to be spoken today as ....... "Amen"........ is used with frequency in many spiritual fields.... with some importance.....

I think it warrants investigation........

The motive for investigation may be biased.....

however, the method of scholarship does not have to be..... nor does it have to be shut down because of another bias.....

the bias of keeping the status quo....

Please advise....



Peace,

But I would have to add that the his-story so many people refer to has been all out FALSIFIED to bolster the worldview of our oppressor. Not so long ago the same intellectual community tried to say that great Zimbabwe was created by a semetic people that came to South Africa in search of King Soloman's mines... this BS was actually taught and believed by the same people that are considered 'scholars' today. The European view of history and even the catagorizations used for the world's people and languages is ALL highly suspect.
