*******Not everyone would be able to grasp some of these truths so maybe by summerising them into text people were able to have a foundation for realising higher truths*******
name one single truth that could not be grasped if it were not for writing?
otherwise all non-writing indigenous cultures should kiss the feet of the missionaries who brought holy writ to them.
the bantu should thank the belgians
the celts should thank st. patrick and the catholics
the apache should hank the puritans
the hopi should thank the spanish
the aborignes should thank the english
since europeans had writing and books, they indeed did us a favor then by exposing us to those higher truths?
so they did save our savage/uncivilized souls then right?
well in that case give thanks for colonization and slavery. I mean something good did come out of it.
I can read...I can read my bible...thank God for the brits and their slaveships and bible. My ancestors who were raped, beaten and stolen paid a small price for their descendants' enlightenments I guess.
slavery, a blessing in disguise.
