I have always heard Rases say "Rasta from creation." What does that mean to Idren here? Does it mean Rasta has been here since the creation of mankind? Does it mean one has been a Rasta since they were born?
If it means from the beginning of time, why is it necessary that Afrikans see Ras Tafari Makonnen as the creator of the universe to be Rasta, since Ras Tafari Makonnen was born in 1892?
In my opinion, the creator cannot be placed on a timeline because Iration is not linear. It is cyclic...a cypher.
Any opinions on this?
