Part II: From Human Nations to Great Empires

The Human Republic

According to the multiregional theory of evolution taught in schools today, the Homo erectus (the ancestors of today’s humans) left the African continent approximately 200,000 years ago to spread the Earth. Each group of humans evolved in time adapting to the environmental conditions of their respective settlement region creating the physical variations we see today.

The Untold Stories in African History (Part I: Revelations)

Recently, with the advancement of genetic studies,some scientists decided to analyze the DNA of thousands of people all over the world to try and determine where we all really came from.

As Mory Povich would put it :“Adam, you are the father!”

The Genographic Project was launched in 2005 and the conclusions support the Out of Africa theory of evolution which basically says that modern humans only evolved on the African continent and then migrated to the rest of the world starting about 70 millennia ago, to areas previously populated by now extinct human species such as the Neanderthals.

If it even existed, racism should have ended there but it is clear that some people didn’t get the memo on how we are all from the same human race.

In fact, scientists were able to determine that the variations in genetic differences were so little that the humans we are today probably all came from a few thousand individuals and that we likely all share two common ancestors that can be dated  back about 130,000 years ago: one African male and one African female.

Look at that: scientific proof of Adam and Eve! And these perfect creatures of God happen to be African.

Speaking of Adam, it looks like he (or his uncle or someone from the family) might have been into astronomy already 75,000 years ago.

In fact, judging by the name, he seems to have come up with Adam’s Calendar (obviously with Eve and the family’s help).

Located  in the hills of  Emngwenya in Mpumalanga (South Africa), Adam’s Calendar, which dates back 75 000 years, is known to be one of the earliest monolithic calendars. It’s made with an ensemble of rocks arranged in a circular shape around two stone boulders which are aligned with the geographic cardinal points of planet Earth, and marks solstices and equinoxes.

I guess there’s no need to look further for the garden of Eden then… [subscribe to our blog and stay tuned for that chapter of this series.]

Now guess who first went to America?

An Egyptian scholar known as Ibn Fadl Al-Umari, published a book in 1342 where he talks about two large maritime voyages ordered by the predecessor of Mansa Musa, a king who inherited the Malian throne in 1312.

Malian sailors visited America in 1311 AD, 181 years before Christopher Columbus.

This mariner king is not named by Al-Umari, but modern writers identify him as Mansa Abubakari II.

Check out this book for details:

To add to this, archaeological research unveiled that the Nigerian city of Ile-Ife was paved with decorations that originated in Ancient America in 1000 AD on the orders of a female ruler; yes, a woman in power 1000 years ago on the African continent.

I guess no one screams imposture because one could argue that African standard time was so advanced at the time that they got to visit (not discover) America 500 years before Christopher Columbus’ watch started ticking.- I’m just saying.

Meanwhile in Europe… the Dark Age was at its apogee as the continent was ravaged by plague and famine and people were murdering each other for religious and ethnic reasons.

Today the African Union has amongst its goals to achieve greater unity and solidarity between the African countries and the peoples of Africa and to accelerate the political and socio-economic integration of the continent.This would mean that if one day these goals are met, Africa will probably have the largest, wealthiest, most culturally diverse union in the world.

It’s been proven: The greatest nation in the world has been African.

Back in the 14th century, the Mali Empire was one of the three richest regions on earth with China and Iran/Irak. From all three, the only one which was still independent and prosperous was the Mali Empire. China and the Middle East were conquered by the Genghis Kan Mongol troops which ravaged, pillaged, and raped everywhere they went.

In the 14th century, the city of Timbuktu in West Africa was considered the richest city in the world. It was five times bigger than the city of London, and was recently described by National Geographic as the Paris of the medieval world, on account of its intellectual culture. According to Professor Henry Louis Gates, 25,000 university students studied there.

Did you know the richest man in the history of Humanity was African?

Set aside the Bill Gates, Warren Buffets and Carlos Slims of this world: Mansa Musa, emperor of the 14th century Mali Empire (which covered modern day Mali, Senegal, Gambia, and Guinea) was worth the equivalent of 400 billion dollars at the time of his death in 1331.

Back then, the Mali Empire was producing more than half the world’s supply of salt and gold. I guess that’s just a slight preview of how rich the continent can be without the “help” of some legalised mafia organisations known in politically correct terms as multinationals – but we’ll talk about this another time…[sign up below to be notified].

Until the end of 16th century, the African continent was considerably more advanced than Europe in term of political organization, science, technology and culture.
