    The brother is highly intelligent and a good talker but I don't agree with everything he is talking about.

    Their "yes men". :lol:

    Seriously though, the brother talks about "choosing a god" as if he wants to "create god in his own image" when the TRUTH of the matter is that NO MAN ALIVE has seen the face of God.

    Okay, I see.

    I think you misunderstood dr. clarke.

    When he talks about "choosing a god" clarke is referring to different spiritual ['god'] concepts as
    they are, as dr. ben would say, "deification of culture(s)".

    I didn't listen to his entire speech but I disagreed with his suggesting to "create god in his own image" and his omitting the NEGATIVE facts about africa. (i.e slavery).

    I am a black man in america...not an "african".

    In my opinion, blacks in america are among the children of God. Their ancestors were SOLD into CRUEL SLAVERY by some africans. Although they have african ancestry, many of them have european and native ancestry too.

    We are an AMALGAMATION of people...not just "africans".

    Despite how we got here, we still have that African ancestry in our veins, and to choose America, while disavowing the African component is working YT's program.

    Peace!
