    The destruction of the woman in history and religion is a subject that should boggle the mind of all who become aware of what has taken place as it regards history, religion and women. Obviously we are dealing with religions and history that was written by men. In the quest to review the reality of this issue, I have no choice but to take it back to the foundation of it all, which is clearly African.

    The greatest impact concerning this issue would clearly come from European people who of course were writing history...and of course, African people who are now following it as if it is their own. Having said this, let us go back for a minute to look at the reality of our ancestors in Africa. I have often been asked why is it that so many people focus their attention on Kemet (Egypt). My answer to that is quite simple. Kemet (Egypt) is the best documented civilization of the past that there is. With Kemet (Egypt) we are not left asking questions pertaining to anything that they did. We know their spiritual practices. We know how they governed their society. We know what their medical knowledge was. We know because they left a written record and monuments that speak to their civilization.

    The one thing we do know for sure based upon the works of our scholars and the cultural history of our ancestors is that "as a people we have always had a high reverence for the African/Black woman". In fact, it is quite interesting that Africa is known as "The Motherland";...that nature is called "Mother Nature"...that we come from a "Matriarchal Society"...and that according to Kemetic (Egyptian) history, "all women are born royal". What this means is that "no pharaoh could rise to the throne unless he came through a woman of Nobel stature". According to the research of John G. Jackson in his work entitled: "Man, God and Civilization", in marriage it was the "man who promised to obey the woman in all that she said".

    What is perhaps most interesting is that as we travel further back into time, the concept and reality of "the Goddess" surfaces as the concept of God disappears. Even as we look into the universe we can see the dark womb of space "giving birth to the sun, moon and stars in it"...so it was very conceivable that in the beginning that the concept of "a Creator" would have naturally been regarded as feminine in nature. Even man in the beginning had no idea that the sex act he was participating in would produce a child nine months down the line, and from a male perspective, "child birth"...the bringing forth of life was regarded as one of the greatest miracles and mysteries that there is...which he of course could not do.

    This is the very statement I was trying to make awhile back when some of yall men took it the wrong way ...and ran with it. We can't take your place in life, it's just that ...we (women) are your life!!
    Obey the women in all that she said ...yeah, I like this part :lol:

    Hello Keita!

    This is a "decidedy" necessary topic of discussion...!

    The fact that you are honest and enlightened enough to present the truth in such a conceptual format speaks volumes. :welldone:
