It is, when you posted that clip I also thought that perhaps there might be some correlation with the less "rich" spoken language as well. Maybe the language genes in the hybrids had some element to them that prompted them to compensate.


Compensation.

Interesting concept.

Well of course they weren't these tribesmen we see on TV,they were noble and great warriors but just remember that just because something is in Africa does not mean its African.
Egypt had a lot to do with the Med Europeans and the Arabs and the Moors were Arab too.

That is a rather ignorant point of view my friend. If you took some time to truly study the matter you would see just how wrong you are. Much of the plight of the African people today stems from European colonialism. Before the European invasion, there were many glorious kingdoms in Africa. The Yoruba Kingdom is one fine example. Do not forget that Egypt is in Africa. There a mighty Empire flourished while Europeans were still living in caves.

Don't be so quick to judge with your eyes my friend. Do some studying on the matter and open your mind.

With Love,

Your Brother

In relation to my previous post in this thread, and this post:



The White Lodge and the Aryan Race


"While the Anglo-Saxon race was still wandering, fierce and wild, through uncultivated wastes, living in holes dug out of the sides of hills, and fighting like harry anthropoids for the rotting bones of beasts they had slain, the ancient Indian Empire was sitting in meditation or deep-buried in libraries filled with books bearing upon their hand-illumined pages of wisdom of a hundred generations."

Collected Writings: Volume 1 Early Works by Manly P. Hall 33°


I'm also very interested in the Gnosis of the Yoruba Religion, which has been mentioned by Samael Aun Weor and some Gnostic Instructors.

Excellent additions indeed my friend.

I do not look as any race as superior of inferior to any other. Each has it's own unique cultures and histories. We would do more as a species if we could only get past our differences, and recognise that in our diversity lies our strengths. When we realise we are the Brotherhood called Man, then we will reach the stars.


With Love,

Your Brother

I know a bit about it my friend. What would you like to know? I am an intiated Palero, priest of Palomayombe which stems from the Lemba "secret society" of the Bantu Kongo. It is not directly related to the Yoruba religion of Ifa (ee-fa) but it is a close relative.

I recommend "Ifa will mend this broken world" by Awise Wande Abimbola. He is the world spokesperson for Ifa, Kinda like the Pope of Catholicism.

The only superiority there is or was, is when it relates to animals, and humans, not race. Remeber even in Africa humans came in all shapes sizes and colors. Neandethals in my opinion were the primates. Now when I use american indians as an example of simple tribes using simple living techniques that is strictly an example. Another example easily made could be dutch living on a farm still miling cows compare to the German in the middle of Frankfurt tapping away at a laptop just to find the nearest haptbahnhof. Thats the part of humans that is rather lazy, greedy, and insatiable. A lot of people always want to down play tribes in africa just because they live life fairly the same as they lived ages ago, and want to call them savages, uncivilized. Compare a war between tribes in Africa to a war between these countries over natural resources. Bows and Arrow intended for a specific person instead of nukes or cluster bombs that harm even cicvilians. Technology in my opinion does not make a human advanced. It actually dumbs human down.... Find me a 13 year old that can accurately write in script and cursive. Bt th3y cn EZly rite N dis stupid TXT lingo quite well. GTFOHWTBS...

I've spoken briefly with a Gnostic student who's religious background is that of Palo Mayombe, and I believe Santeria also.

I've no further questions as of now, but thank you for the book suggestion.

Although if time permits, I may start a thread about Yoruba and related Religions (or add on to one that already exists).

And if I end up starting such a thread I'll send you a private message in order to let you know, as to see if you're interested in participating.

Not everyone in Africa runs around with a loin cloth and spear in hand lol. Africa is the richest continent in terms of resources and the colonial powers tried to civilize things with formal gov but that didn't quite work out. You could argue it's the culture but black Africa is filled with different tribes/people with many cultures. Maybe there is a significant difference in cerebral capacity and everyone else?

Every language in the world - from English to Mandarin - evolved from a prehistoric 'mother tongue' first spoken in Africa tens of thousands of years ago, a new study reveals. After analysing more than 500 languages, Dr Quentin Atkinson found compelling evidence that they can be traced back to a long-forgotten dialect spoken by our Stone Age ancestors.



wasn't there an article a while back saying that our ancestors came from middle east and not Africa?

what about the basque language. it's been my understanding that the basque language has not been able to be attributed to any ancestral language like latin etc.

Where are you getting anything about superiority? Different doesnt mean "better" or "worse." You are projecting.

Well, they are primates in the way WE are primates. You seem to have a bad, likely media generated opinion of Neanderthals. Which is very outdated.

I have never called them savages, personally, I actually think hunter gatherers live in a more sustainable way, and, they tend to have happier lives and more free time, while the propaganda for civilization tells us that what we are doing is the best and has "Saved" humanity from the "nasty brutish and short" life Hobbes envisioned came before it. Clearly, the civilization that has spread outward from the Mediterranean and mid east has been a mixed blessing at best.

It doesnt change the fact that both tribes and more technologically advanced nations are fighting over the same thing. Resources. For the same reason. (they need more to grow their population) Its more romantic to some people, perhaps, to fight hand to hand, but slaughtering your fellow man still sucks. Yes, its natural selection, and the strongest, smartest, fastest, most cooperative, whatever win out, and perhaps that how God and Nature intended it, but it would be nice if we could solve the problem that leads to wars over resources.

I dont disagree with you that to some degree, technology and settled civilization has dumbed individual people down. But human beings arent competing only as individuals. They compete primarily as groups, And even though individuals may be getting dumber in technologically advanced societies, the "whole" is getting better and better at killing the competition and taking their resources. Which is the same game the tribes play, only on a smaller scale. But they too are playing the same game.

Who knows. Bottom line, I dont want to get into a debate about the evils of Western Civilization here. It is what it is. It displaced the tribal societies of Europe too, for better or worse. Hunting and gathering seems a lot more sustainable as a system over the long run than the game we are playing now, but its clearly losing the battle at the moment.

Things turn on a dime, however, in evolution, and what is now a great strategy may not be for long. The Mayan civilization collapsed under its own weight and the people reverted to hunting and gathering. WHEN, not if, Western civilization hits a wall, and it will if we dont change drastically, we might all end up right back to that life style.

Simply put, If you would like to consider yourself a primitive neanderthal , then yes I AM more superior than you. If you want to quote someone, please quote everyhting I said. You keep bringing race into this issue. I am speaking about the difference between apes and man. Now are you a (HUE)man or ape?

I see our issue is our disagreement between evolution and creation... In no way did I evolve from a monkey. If that is what you beleive then so be it.

I find the above "the White Lodge and the Aryan race" quite racist, generalizing whites (the anglo-saxons) as fierce and wild and "harry ( i believe that's a misspelling for hairy). The anglos didn't live in temperate climates there for they had to to result in living in caves and "digging holes" for protection from the elements such as snow something that isn't found regularly in temperate and tropical regions. Now, if someone were to post a statement or write something similar or copy and paste something similar to that about black africans than racism would be shouted loudly and all hell would break loose with just about everyone claiming whomever posted that as a racist. Just some food for thought


IamIam, I am disappointed in you for not pointing that out or at least noticing it. You of all people, I would think, would've noticed that as quite racist.
Someone also pointed out in one of the earlier pages in this thread about the Europeans coming to Africa and taking the Africans as slaves. Did you fail to realize that is was the Africans themselves that SOLD their own into slavery?? That is also something that is often left out of our "racist" "white" history books that are used in our school systems. Sorry to get off topic but that really irritates the # out of me.

Sorry, I am a hairy white boy from Baltimore who in high school formed a gang that went by the name "Neanderthals". I even have it, with our logo (a skeletal hand raising the middle finger) tattooed on my upper arm.

See...




So forgive me, I thought it was a compliment.

Ah the rabbit hole gets deeper. where did noise come from? Can have sound without air, where did air come from? (gets into fetal position on bed an ponders these questions for the rest of the night)
