Re: The Five Major African Initiation Rites

Rowe ·
Some points that are especially poignant: This transition to adulthood is exceedingly difficult in Western societies because there are no systems of adulthood rites to systematically guide and direct the young person through this important stage in his or her life cycle. Unfortunately, in Western societies there is no fundamental guidance or transformation from a child to an adult that is required or expected. This "leave it for chance" approach to adulthood development is the root of most...

Rowe, as you know, I love u and all but my biggest pet peeve is wrongful information especially medical ones! First of all, the ability to eat raw meat versus cook meat does not provide evidence that humans are not meant to be meat-eaters. It just implies that we as a more developed and TOOL-using species in conjunction with our opposable thumbs afforded us the ability to develop the science (and art) of cooking. I agree that true carnivores have a much shorter intestine than we do, but on...

Oshun I always look forward to reading your post. This topic is especially important because it highlights the very truth that was changed by the Church. January is not the beginning of the year, when everything is dead. Spring is the beginning of the year when new plant life bursts from the ground.

YOu give no explanation of why the Church might have wanted to change the start of the year. In fact, the start to any year is arbitrary. Some cultures started their year in the spring. Fair enough--the plants are opening and it looks like a new year, all right. This seemed especially prevalent among those cultures that used a lunar calendar. But some--like the Church adn, by the way, like ancient Egypt--started their year with the winter solstice, when the sun starts its apparent return...

I've been touched personally by a family suicide. After years of depression, we lost someone very dear.

I guess being in jail for undocumented illegal immigrants is full participation in our society. After all ask "our" people in jail that question. Dont worry the US army has free labor camps to answer that need of labor shortage. Obama is adding nothing to this problem except crafted words. It needs the full approval of the House and Senate and they are dead in the water for now over this whole issue.

Easter is a pagan ritual. It is wrong. Rabbits and eggs worship is not found in the Holy Bible. We as believers are told to remember Jesus' death on the cross, not the resurrection.

It falls on the 14th day of the first month of the (Jewish) year. This could be any day of the week. Good Friday is a man-made thing. What we DO KNOW, the time Jesus gave...

Good point, but movements ebb and flow. Part of my whole questioning on this subject is to get a sense of where things are in the evolution of PA.

Too many of us had "bought the hype" and were too busy trying NOT to be African! I do sense a current renewal of Pan African thinking though. In that...
