Re: Timbuktu’s Cultural Heritage More Damaged Than First Estimated

I have news for yall. A lot of vital books, art and reliefs were DESTROYED by Arab slavers to prevent black slaves from KNOWING their true history of excellence. That's why it was convincing to say that blacks were savages cuz proof of their achievements were destroyed by these MONSTERS more than a thousand years ago. When massa came along, he destroyed even more proof. So this is why I don't understand ANY black person in their RIGHT mind would follow the religion of either of these groups.

That's WHY they are hiding the others in sacred places. Cuz of this constant pillage against Timbuktu. They are soooooo banked on destroying our identity as an advance culture. They will do whatever they can to eliminate our legacy. They did the same in Iraq. And again when the destroyed the roman monuments here recently. That's why black people better get those books on black civilization and hold on to them. When everything go from paper to digital? That's when the real lies will begin cuz...

And this is a word-wide phenomenon where the Black race is concerned. I know you know Koco, but if only most Black people would research and read their own history way beyond the Trans-Atlantic Slave Trade and the Arab Slave Trade, they will be shocked at what they learn and be able to immediately connect the dots to WHY the entire Black Race MUST UNITE on the planet. When you find out how much was stolen from Africans, what Africans knew, had created, figured out and how Africans lived...

You know...religion aside? I can't even get to understanding a "human" [male] subjegating another human [female] based on a two-thousand year spiritual conjecture. It was HUMANS who took over and destroyed African nations, it was HUMANS who took and destroyed Native American nations, where oh where is the so-called GOD in that?

Yeah .... it's kinda hard for me to put the blame "religion" .... before I put it on the HUMAN BEING factor that corrupts it!! Simply introducing Christianity to our slave ancestors may not have been such a bad thing ... but using abuse, torture and death to force the acceptance of it ... on people who already had/practiced their own form of "religion" is what makes our unwavering adherence to it all the more disgusting and inhumane, IMO. Religion may be the 'vehicle' by which 'crimes...

I think the author is saying as such, Koco/ER, when he states/speaks of: " The truth, alas, is that the science fiction archetype of the mad scientist who craves to dominate the world has been replaced by the mad cleric who can only conceive of the world in his own image, proudly flaunting Bond's Double-0-7 credentials -- Licensed to Kill" I read it as the "you" was understood in that it is/was man(human beings) who/that created/concocted all these religions that extract the worst from...

Ummmm ... well, actually, I see it kind of differently, Sunnubian ... I don't see "religion" in and of itself, being anything necessarily bad. Pretty much all the religions that I have any personal knowledge of tend to have the same basic fundamental tenants: 1) There is a "God"/"Supreme Being" that it's centered around; 2) it has a set of "rules"/"laws" that govern it; and 3) there is some directive to somehow acknowledge/worship/show reverence to that "God"/"Supreme Being" in some way.

I don't believe it is necessarily religion itself, especially in this day and age, but, I do believe that it has been man all along that has distorted what the religion is supposed to be or mean for his own gain and/or control over the masses (in the place of God, really). But, there is plenty of violence and encouragement to commit violence in most religious texts.

Lemme say one better: so-called religion was primarily created to control women and children and start wars. The true religion was actually STOLEN from the characteristic-base spirituality of women. It has been historic FACT men NEVER knew what to do with their testerone....other than chase wild beast for food and lift a few heavy rocks....other than that they were like energic bunnies.

Exactly sista ER!!!! Initially the Romans and Greeks didn't really have a religion per se. That came afterwards. And cuz the doctrine of religion is NOT perfect, it has a lotta loop holes....where "craziness" can jump through and be justified-which makes the whole dynamics of "religion" hypocritical/and manipulative. Cuz the words can be taken in so many ways..which is absolutely DANGEROUS. I say give me STRAIGHT talk...say what you mean....and mean whatcha say. Cuz no matter what YOU...

And because of the risk of losing the truth about African heritage in this regent, appointed priests guard and hide the authentic strolls of spiritual awakening from the enemies: Christians and Muslims. And every so often, they change the location where these strolls are hidden. So as all are distracted with the sites, buidlings etc....the real African concern remains from the public eye. This is to preserve who we are until the right time. And as long as the Arab have control over this...
