    You Are Uncivilized Without African Indigenous Religion Pagan-Polytheism

    in Religion

    All people must receive an education that pertains to the intelligent human venue of origins--are you can never be indeed autonomously a civilized individual. The African religion was first inaugurated in Mesopotamia some 6,000 years ago, and worked its way through many cultures, before some of its rituals and precepts reached the West. Therefore it is impossible for prodigal religions to take the place of the genuine Mesopotamian incipient reprotype human religion.

    DOES RELIGION PERPETUATE AFRICAN AMERICAN SUFFERING & VICTIMIZATION

    in Pop Culture

    Hipolitix - 8pm EST www.blogtalkradio.com/hipolitix


    Join us tonight for a conversation with Anthony B. Pinn. Anthony received from Harvard University in 1994 and made his initial mark on the academy with Why, Lord?: Suffering and Evil in Black Theology  (1995), galvanizing Pinn as an African American humanist and solidifying African American humanism as an historic, non-theistic religious orientation for African Americans.  In this text, Pinn finds that black theologians have no evidence to support the notion that God is working on behalf of the oppressed, and any theological position that claims such is based on redemptive suffering theodicies that perpetuate African American suffering.  For Pinn, human liberation is more important than the maintenance of any religious symbol, including God.  Pinn offers African American humanism as a strategy for “liberation” that does not make black suffering virtuous.

    Jesus And God Are Prodigal Doctrine, Darkness Of Mind,Void Of African Religion,

    in Religion

    People like you and I grow up in the violence the Romans spread in the A.D. world, over 2015 years. They had enough time to imposed their evil will on people, by forcing them to accept the fraudulent fictional story of God. Further to, make people in human sin and a curse from the fictional allegorical God. The Romans themselves are originally indigenous Africans, like every intelligent people. World history writes on the background of the Romans religion, and said the following:  "Agustus brought back traditional festivals and ceremoniesto revive the Roman state religion,which had declined during the turmoil of the late Roman Republic. The official state religion focused on the worship of a number of [gods] and goddesses, including Jupiter, Juno, Minerva, and Mars.  (In addition, beginning  with Agustus, emperors were often officially made gods by the Roman Senate, thus blostering support for the emperors.)" By National Grographic Word History. Take note that no official human history speaks of Genesis 1 creation of the world, and that means the bible only writes a fictional story that is irrelevant to real history.
