Thank you knowledge, knowledge is a very good name, and I hope your name will help you to cultivate much knowledge, as you live from day to day.
There is just too much religious indoctrination that is involved tn the disposing of the remains of a person who has passed away. Just too much extravagant spending to put away a piece of trash. These are modern times so, we muist dispose of our trash instead of making a great business out of it, so that ordinary people cannot afford to bury the remains of their relatives. Well, there is a part of the bible which said, let the dead bury their dead, but how can that ever be, can the dead bury the dead?
Another question, would you trim your dreadlocks, if a person was to die suddenly in your presence? Well, if you read numbers chapter 6 in the bible, you will see the laws of the Nazarenes, which was a religious society, to which one may take a vow, to become a Nazarene. If you take that vow, then there shall be no razor be used upon you head until the days of you vow be fulfilled, but if you happened to come across a dead body, then you must shave your head and your beard, and murder some birds and sheep or may be goats as a sacrifice for your sins. Can you give me your views on this chapter. The journey of life continues. Take the best care of yourself and your people.
Again I send many oceans of blessings and self determination to African people everywhere.
ONE BLACK HEART ONE BLACK LOVE.
Baba Ras Marcus.
