    In 570 A.D a man would be born who would bring about a historical religious reform in Arabia. We know him as Prophet Muhammad although there is scholarship out that questions his existence. However, It is stated that he received his revelations from the angel Gabril. This can not possibly be true by any stretch of the imagination, for an examination of the Qu'ran reveals that it supports the same stories found in the Bible that have been proven to have No Historical Reality at all. Although it has been denied that he was influenced or taught by any Christians or Jews, the fact of the matter is that Arabia was already infiltrated by Christians and Jews alike before and during his birth.

    At the time of the prophets birth, the Ka'ba was filled with 360 gods and goddesses and Allah was one of them. Thanks to a Royal tablet discovered in Susa in 1907 that came from the library of the King of Ashurbanipal from the 7th century B.C., we now know that Arabia "was ruled by Queens for as long as history can record". As such, we now know that Arabia prior to the birth of Prophet Muhammad was matriarchal or female based. The three female principles that they worshipped were "Allat, Al-Uza and Manah", which were later called the daughters of Allah. If a woman wanted to divorce her husband she simply had to turn her tent away from him for three nights in a row.Without going into a long drawn out writing on this, let me sum it up this way. In essence what Islam did was to take the rights away from the woman and give them to the man.

    Another point of interest is that prior to the rise of Islam no one was ever named after the father in African/Black civilizations. We were always named after the mother...which is also why there are no last names, tribal names or totem names in the Bible, as it would reveal what they fought so hard to destroy and hide.If we take into account that the lineage was kept through the woman and not the man, what does this do for religions which amazingly trace everything from Adam on down? What does this do to religions which trace everything from Abraham on down? These are Anti-African Realities" which is explored on the CD included in the book by Barbarele Kenyatta entitled:"50 Questions Every Christian Should Ask Themselves About The Bible and More".

    What we have failed to account for was the fact that men back then was not like men today. He didn't go out and work a 9-5 job and then come home to the wife and children.Men back then might leave home on a work mission or exploration and be gone for months at a time. Even in these times there are many brothers and sisters "who know who their mother is but do not know who their father is, which explains why a lineage would in fact be kept through a woman and not a man." This is equally why African civilization and culture was such a threat to outsiders who were already in the business of oppressing, depressing and subjugating their woman to the level of beast.This reality that I speak of is crucial for one important reason, and that reason is that it has been these same "outsiders with their created religions and their contempt of the female who conquered our people and forced their language, their religion and their values upon our ancestors who in turn passed them on to us."

    They knew that because of our spiritual nature that we would advance it and keep it alive as they never could have done on their own. Now today it is the last shackle of slavery that we will have to over come if we are to rise once again. I guess that the most tragic part is that it is now our women who are filling up the churches...taken from a level of Goddesses to the level of "being the cause for all the worlds ills and the greatest advocate of Christianity and the very book that has subjugated them on a world wide level. Now that is what I call "really flipping the script."!!
