Distorted Truths:Bastardization of Afrikan Cosmology

Distorted truths...

History is not properly taught to Afrikan people. We have no idea how our worldview set the standard in ancient history. What has been erroneously called polytheism–that was us; the belief that a part of the person survived death, and could be communicated with, ancestor communion–that was us; the notion that the Supreme Being was self-evident throughout existence–that was us; the idea that the divine was both masculine and feminine–that was us; the idea that there was a natural order that was observable, could be emulated, and reproduced as a system to live by–that was us. And what did this worldview produce–the grandeur of Kemet, Sumer/Elam (pre-Aryanian Mesopatamia), Mohenjo-Daro (pre-Aryanian India), and the Li Min or Yellow River high culture (pre-Chou China). In other words, the Afrikan worldview was responsible for developing ALL the early so called river valley civilizations. Yes, before the rise of the Semites (mulattoes), Afrikan thought was predominant in the world. This point is nothing but an extension of what Chancellor William’s Destruction of Black Civilization was about. We don’t understand that the development of Greek philosophy, Judaic monotheism, Roman Christianity, and Arab Islam, all came about as challenges to Afrikan though. What did these systems of thought all have in common–They attacked or removed the feminine from the divine! That’s what they all did. Review history and you’ll see this is what happened.  Merlin Stone’s When God was a Woman documents this–she does not make the connection between race, culture, and worldview though. Even Elaine Pagels’ Gnostic Gospels demonstrates this attack upon the feminine in early Christianity but she too fails to put her argument in the context of race, culture, and worldview. My book Distorted Truths does this.

Someone said about my book that it was an “interesting look at the foundations of Afrikan thought and the struggle against it in the ancient world.” Actually, our system of thought was and continues to be constantly under ATTACK. Non-Afrikan people have been attacking the Afrikan worldview for millennia now. They have replaced our matrifocal system with patriarchy structures. To me this simply means they have problems with the feminine and anything they equate with it. That means they will dishonor nature, women, emotions, the body, all things that they perceive as in opposition to their masculine counterparts: God (the Father), men, reason, the mind. This is based on their dichotomous logic.

I was recently telling a friend of mine that the Bible is anti-Afrikan, that at its core it challenges the Afrikan worldview. I proceeded to point these things out clearly, and unequivocally, and she said, “I disagree.” It is not my intention to present those arguments now, but it was the person’s knee-jerk reaction that concerned me. We have become so enamored with these foreign ideas (religions) that we are afraid to look critically at what we had. And when I say what we had I am not just talking about Nubia and Kemet, I’m referring to the Afrikan worldview and culture as it existed among any Afrikan people. Their foundations are the same though their level of “achievement” differed. It is this foundation that we need to rebuild. Our challenge is to regain our worldview and if this entails waging an ongoing struggle against Western, Eastern, or any system of thought that is anti-Afrikan, then so be it. The struggle to regain our worldview is paramount.



Initially, human identity was based on culture, and since cultures differed, people naturally viewed themselves as different. Ethnocentrism was a naturally occurring yet harmless phenomenon. Racial identity did not exist until the European creation of the concept. However, today, human beings are classified and divided into racial groups. Europeans for the most part are the most unified grouping while Afrikans number among the most disunited. Our apparent lack of racial unity (and economic cohesion) obstructs our development as other racial groupings feed on our factionalism. Nevertheless, we do have a genuine basis for togetherness. I have argued in my book Distorted Truths, that though Afrikan cultures are diverse, something our enemies (all to willingly) frequently point out, Afrikan cultures share the same worldview assumptions and cultural intentionalities. Thus, our worldview assumptions, and our unique history at the hands of other groups are but two of the most powerful rallying points for Afrikan racial unity.

Pan-Afrikanism must be the concept that provides that unity; it should become the eternal theme of Afrikan existence; it must be instrumental in the development of global Black Power. Pan-Afrikan unity cannot simply be a territorial unity but ought to express the solidarity of Afrikan people based on our distinctive racial, cultural, linguistic and historical identity; it should offer means for Diasporan inclusiveness and participation; it needs to provide for the collective security and ultimate survival of Afrikan people. We have to champion it and the Afrikan worldview with a passion exceeding European cultural chauvinism, modern Zionism, and Asian ethnocentrism.

Divine Feminine Principle- Black Women return to your True Divinity (Part 2 of 5)

Earth is a title the righteous Black woman within the community calleed the Nation of Gods and Earths carries with pride. She is the Mother of Civilization and Queen of the Universe.

The planet Earth is the 3rd planet from the sun and 93 (9=Born, 3 = Understanding) million miles away from that energy source. Here, she is able to born understanding, or give birth to the best part of herself mentally and physically. She is secure in her position and it is through her perfect position that she sees her greatness and understands the divinity of her proper placement in the universe.

3/4ths of the Earth is covered with water. The refined Black woman covers herself approximately 3/4ths of the way, which will often if not always include her head being covered with a crown because she understands her culture and is free to be refined in it. By doing so, she keeps her best part which she considers to be her precious jewels preserved for those and only those who deserve it.

Those precious jewels are her mind and womb, which both have the ability to bring forth life. Her goal is to remain refined and respected. She is not striving to be looked at in a lustful way by men. She knows her worth and knows that being sexy or a “Diva” are not what she aspires to be. She is capable of being so much more. She walks with dignity and self-respect, has high self-esteem, and embraces her natural self.

She is the first teacher, and leads by example. Those who are around her see her wisdom through the example she sets. She also sets the standards by which her daughters want to aspire and her son’s would want their wives to be. She is a person that she herself would admire, respect, and keep close as a friend/sister.

The Earth has a Wise Dome and applies wise words, ways, and actions, respectfully. She is a P.O.E.T. This means tha she applies P.roper O.rder while E.xecuting the T.ruth using Supreme Mathematics as her guide. She is loyal, dedicated, and devoted to righteousness.

The Earth is humble, yet firm. Flexible, but not weak. Confident, but not cocky. She is a student and a teacher, thus will do the knowledge before ever manifesting a thought. She is constantly aspiring to gain wisdom.

The Earth is e-motion-al. Her Energy is ALways in Motion. She is in tune with these emotions, and brings clarity to them through peaceful evaluation of the situation at hand. The Earth remains centered and never allows her emotions to get out of hand by acting like a lunatic. She is always in control of her emotions (and if not, she is constantly working towards mastering them). Her emotions are a motivation to her. They prompt her to be motivated in doing what needs to be done.

There are 4 devils specifically she rebukes. They are Hate, Lust, Greed, and Jealousy

  • The Earth counters Hate  by agreeing to disagree, and by taking the best part of everything.
  • The Earth counters  Lust by avoiding obsession with sex, or anything that may lead to that obsession, like pornography, intoxication, or immoral peers. She understands procreation is a natural urge, but saves that urge for her King and God –  the one worthy of her.
  • The Earth counters Greed  by not misinterpreting material wealth or status as true wealth. She does not harbor selfish desires to obtain more than what is needed, excess material goods, social positions, or power.
  • The Earth counters Jealousy by wanting for her brothers and sisters what she would want for herself. She is secure in her perfect position in the universe and strives for greatness!

The Earth knows God. The 17th letter is Q (1 =Knowledge, 7 = God). She is a Queen. She stands by the side of God who is the Supreme Being. She is very careful when choosing a mate, her king, her God. She knows she is a valuable jewel and whoever should have her will be worthy.

The Earth has respect for her relationship with God. Her dealings with her God and their Universe are sacred. She honors him and what they have together. She knows the value and importance of the family structure; the man, woman, and child, never getting it twisted with monetary value. Therefore, she never has an “I dont need no man” mentality. She need him just as he needs her for life to go on.So as you can see, with all of her positive attributes and duties of greatness, the Earth definitely has a role and position not only within the Nation of Gods and Earths, but within all that exists. The Earth holds this title with her birthright, but she is righteous by choice. She is respected, protected, and loved.
