At no point did I say ALL one needs to do is put an 'I' in front of a word(lol),thats garbage.
There was no projection of me being an expert on Rastafari movement,I spoke in very general terms about some commonalities in what took me all of about 10 minutes to type.
**I can see the import and significance in putting 'I' before some words to emphasize the significance and personalisation of the creator within. It could be a good reminder if it is used consciously for one wanting to connect deeper within to the internal teacher,**
Thats actually what was said by me.There is no reference to the bible by me as 'IBLE'.Stop making up things, or thinking that what YOUR memory or version of events ,is the only one. Is that also a euro trait?
Nothing was EVER dictated to you.Theres no real evidence of that other than me saying - 'hey,you havent answered my questions directly enough for me to understand'.
After you saying that you were addressing the group(as such),being apparently an African trait,I can only ask you,seriously - do you really mean that you werent direct to me because of your 'group focus', or is that something you just made up?If not,I apologise,however I think this has nothing to do with Euro culture in this particularity,especially with the amount of people asking questions all through this board.
If anyone is talking to ANYONE in an open forum,it doesnt matter if youre direct to an individuals questions COZ EVERYBODY HEARS YOUR RESPONSE.
Yeah Ive been observing this site for a long while,so what???
Yes, you might be older than me even.
You might have been one of the peoples on the mountain,so you have 'status' in your beleif.So you 'know better'.
Theres no proof that being a few years older makes you wiser.
Youve been shown respect as an individual,and you have shown respect.
I am not apologetic to persistance in requesting further explanations from you.
Your comments of me being schooled in euro ways as a form of using very basic social/racial CONstructs as emotional manipulations doesnt work on me,as it does not apply in this scenario and where I was coming from,as far as I can see.I DO understand where you are coming from though.
If you check this board you will find that there are people asking questions all over the place!
There was no intention to hurt,upset you(I dont imagine that you would be)or attack you.I apologise for refering you as like to a teenager,as it is anyones right to refuse to answer. I just thought you were trying to avoid the questions.Thankyou for the responses thus far.
