Admittedly, I know little about the objectives and goals of this organization, United Nation of Islam (U.N.O.I.), but its members seem to be adamant about differentiating themselves from the Nation of Islam. Their "system of knowledge" relies on the assurance that everything in life can be "proven" using what they describe as "right thinking" or "mathematical thinking." While I support their intentions on building a nation in the state of Kansas which includes a separate school system, grocery stores, barber and beauty shops, University facilities, restaurants, etc, all owned, managed, and operated by African Americans, I am in strong disagreement with their epistemology (or their understanding of how knowledge is acquired) and especially the idea that spirituality, or as they would describe, "a way of life," is limited to "showing and proving." In fact, I recently had a debate with two brothers representing this organization who both insist that I attend one of their "mathematical thinking" classes. I told them that what's ironic is that while the members of your organization seek to separate yourselves from Western ideals and Western thought and behavior, your entire system of knowledge is based on Western conceptions of knowledge and understanding, especially in regards to believing everything in the universe has to be tangible, observable, measurable (mathematically) and "scientifically proven" for it to be valid. Sadly, these people seem to not only be ignorant and/or in denial about their inherently Western belief system, but they have absolutely no interest in traditional African religions or fashioning their "way of life" after traditional African religions, because "nothing in the African religion can be proven." Clearly, there isn't a hint of spirituality in this "way of life," and way too much attention is paid to having so-called "right and exact knowledge." So I was wondering if anyone here knows enough about the organization to critique and/or correct my understanding of this organization's view of knowledge? Perhaps someone who is a representative of this organization can challenge my assertions?
