    Hello Family:

    This came out of the mouth of Dr. Jawanza Kunjufu. He also stated that Afrika is at the center of the world; which is one of the reasons why it is so rich in minerals, goods, etc. As far as being bigger than America, he went on to say that people have been designing it to be smaller than this country. Is this true?

    Your thoughts.

    This Sounds Familiar.....

    I heard years ago that Europe is played up to appear bigger than Afrika, we all know why too. Of course the Afrikan continent is bigger than this country.

    What I learned many years ago was that the U.S. could fit in Africa 5 times!

    Now remember the term America, as in North America the continent, includes Canada and Mexico. So that has to be considered in the 2.5 figure.

    Also it is true that Europeans made extreme exaggerations in the world map to make Europe look many times bigger than it really is, and Africa was intentionally made much smaller. This is all about white supremacy.

    And this will surprise you also; basically, the world map is really upside down! The north was considered by the early advanced civilizations as the bottom of the world. Here is an etymological definition for the term north:

    NORTH

    O.E. norð, from P.Gmc. *nurtha- (cf. O.N. norðr, O.Fris. north, M.Du. nort, Du. noord, Ger. nord), possibly ult. from PIE *ner- "left," also "below," as north is to the left when one faces the rising sun (cf. Skt. narakah "hell," Gk. enerthen "from beneath," Oscan-Umbrian nertrak "left").


    Remember the Upper Nile was in the south and the Ancient people of Kemet (Egypt) prayed facing the South. As a matter of fact, the emperors of early China thrones always faced the South.

    Peace :cool:

    I've Figured That From The Gate.......

    Thank you for clarifying that Brother Sun Ship. Among many of the other conspiracy theories I've almost succumbed to.....I skim through the bible every now and then. It is interesting to know that religious fanatics believe there is an actual hell under the earths surface. If Afrika is the main land(earth), then Europe must have been the mythological #ell that the 'devil' was cast to, after his exodus from 'heaven', since the north and south were confused. See I pretty much believe in the Yacub theory, and how it may apply to us AA's also.

    If you're talking about America proper, as in the United States of America, then actually Afrika is more than 3 times the size of America, 11.7 million square miles for Afrika vs. 3.5 million square miles for America. Taking all of North America in account, Afrika is still larger--11.7 million sq mi vs 9.3 million for North America.

    The distortion of the world map by whites is discussed by Anthony Browder in his book "Nile Valley Contributions to Civilization," where he notes (quoting author Ward Kaiser) that the current world map:

    "enlarges those areas of the world historically inhabited by whites,

    "shifts those same areas to the heart and center of the world's stage, where they do not belong, and

    "minimizes the importance of what we think as 'the south' including most of what we designate as the 'Third World'"

    With regard to Afrika being the center of the world, the geographic center is located in Kemet (misnomered "Egypt"). If one were to draw an imaginary line vertically from the tip of the North Pole through present day Cairo, and extending to the tip of the South Pole, and draw a horizontal line passing through Cairo also, one would see that both lines run through the longest uninterrupted expanses of land in their North-South and East West axes. These two lines intersect at the Great Pyramid of Giza, which was indeed built at least 5-6000 years ago at the geographic center of the world. Black folk back then knew stuff about world geography that, to hear whites tell it, they had no business knowing.
