If you had bothered to read my post, you would have seen that I explained why it boils down to Haile Selassie, why Him alone of all the descendants of King David we proclaim as the Messiah.
I describe the Imperial dyansty as Kushitic until Mennelik I because after that it became Solomonic. These are just names, it is the same line, just as much as the Windsors of England( and Cananda, Jamaica...) are Hannover, Guelf, Plantagenet etc. In Debretts Royal families of the world, the part of the family that His Imperial Majesty springs from in known as the Solomonic House of Shoa.
As for there not being a proclamation of his divinity in his "inner circle", that is neither here or there. Would you be better persuaded if Asfe Negus Aklilu Hapte-Wold or whatever his name was had made a speech and said, " By the way, my boss is God, so you need to show him a little more respect, do you hear me, Benito?"?
The problem is you. You are not one of us, and I really don't see what you hope to accomplish from your display of ignorance and stupidity. Rastafari is all about Haile Selassie, all the other stuff, vegetarianism, locks that is all extras, it all becomes meaningless without Selassie. When you allow this in to your heart and mind, you have become a Rasta.
Best thing is leave us alone, join that Christafari nonsense.
