The span of a day is from sun rise to sun set !)

What is a day? Who defined it? Were they right? Or do we just believe them?

I remember reading in the Bible that a day to God is like some immeasurable amount of time to us.

Or something along those lines.

My point is ... what if ... in order to twist up our understanding of things ... they switched night and day.

We don't really know ... we just go along with what we're told a day is ... and believe it.

I think it's debatable, if one were inclined to do so, but most often we simply accept it as fact.

I suppose it's easier.

Love You!

A day is the word to define sun rise to sun set in WEbster.
Every definition is the opinion of the person authoring taken from the past history of the being!
Of course once you mix one enviroment(time and pplace) the being ends of being one of their words.
Which we wonder everyday who is they. I'm saying everything has na origin of truth that come to be into the atmosphere when one sets it free verbally.
Now there can be a debate on time and the truth would be sun rise to sun set is the origin!
Day just abreviates what system we are a part of!
Sun Rise-Work (migrate)
Sun Set-Rest (rejuvenate)
Makes more sense!

That is my point Sister (in red above) ... it's opinion ... the only thing that makes it fact is that we believe it.

It's okay for it to be an opinion ... and it may be applicable to many ... may even be true ... but it's still only opinion.

Some opinion is stronger than other opinion, has more folk believing it, has been around longer ... but still opinion.

Love You!

lol!

I think you may have proved sister Destee's point. For example, I have read several accounts which state that at one time the orientation based on the earth's polarities was turned upside down, which meant that as we go back in time all the cardinal points were reversed. Furthermore, many ancient cultures were based on the lunar calendar. This means the year and day was reckoned based on the Moon-rise and the Moon-set, and given the time of the year or month, the Moon may not have necessarily "risen" in the East.

Because we have over generations lost knowlede of these ancient systems does not necessarly make them false systems of "belief". This is why I agree, to an extent we have been "hoodwiked" and "bamboozled".

Peace!

Peace!

The opinion comes from the origin which is uasually lost it becomes an unkown fact instead of proven outsourced being from the origin mouth of how this came about!

lol @ longwinded ... Sister please ... you don't know longwinded ... :)

Obviously, you believe the opinion comes from the origin, but i'm not entirely convinced of that.

Believing that though, that it comes from the origin, certainly makes the opinion easier to believe.

Years ago Brother OldSoul did a class on the world map ... suggesting that it has been turned upside down.

Up is really down, and down is really up. North is South and South is North.

Brother O ... your comments reminded me of that class ... Thanks!

Love You Both!

Everything is an option on how you think about the vessel (origin) of how an "fact" came about.
So I'm saying that there has to be a being (a state of being) before you have an opinion on it!
Now how you get to that being when it comes to the imprtance of what your seeking you would have to go back to the origin. In order to form an productive opinion of who this cohabitates into your sate of being. Connections!
These turndupside down theories, well we have to go back to the origin and maybe find out we are right where we are suppose to be knowing the truth!

That's what I'm saying Bru!
We know the facts but we have been led to believe the they are not to understood! Just cause other folks can't. Some folks strive to be first all the time. Balance is needed to open the force of relating.

Right Sister ... we all have to make a decision, whether we believe the opinion being proffered as fact, based on our state of being ... where we are in life ... how compelling the data is ... whatever ... but we have to ultimately believe (or not believe) another's opinion.

Using this one example, a definition by Webster ... i think there should be something in us that is reluctant to immediately believe what this person says ... especially considering the history of their work, that it also includes a definition of Black People that is so very derogatory ... the N Word ... that speaks to their thoughts of us. If he could get that so wrong, what of the rest?

Now ... given how they've proven they feel about us, the devastation in which they've treated us historically ... why would we believe them when it comes to these simple things ... like what is a day?

Are they to be trusted? Should we wrap our whole lives around, this is in fact a day, given the history that accompanies Webster?

I don't know ... I don't trust them so quick ... I think they'd do anything they could to twist us up.

But yes ... each of us have an option to believe or not believe.

I think it's much more difficult, probably impossible, to actually challenge and disprove all the things that need challenging and proving ... so we instead go along ... accept stuff as fact ... and keep it moving ... try to feed our Families, live, survive, all of that.

No one person could probably challenge all that needs challenging, but I hope we're encouraged to at least scrutinize these things, even if only in our own minds.

Love You!

The black woman is god!

black people are god's children.

so called white people are bastards (they made up that word, not us).

There have never been 24 hours in a day.

The reason most black children don't excel in math (especially males) is because they haven't been taught that they are the answer to every mathematical equation.

blackness is not a color, it is the essence of all in existance.

whiteness is not a color, it is the lack thereof.

The atom is not the tiniest partical in existance.

Adam and Eve never existed.

Romulus and Remus were suckled by wolves which is truely why the dog and not 'god' is man-kinds best friend and where they got the name ROME from.

homosexuality started on the island of lesbos.

To be a great pyschologist, you must be able to HONESTLY study self first!

<info scratches head>

Did i mention that the black woman is god?
