My Lord, with all due respect I trace my ancestry back to the original man - Adam. I recognize Jah as the Almighty Creator of all things. Believing a fact or a myth from ancient times are one in the same. If the story told is a fact then how can we prove it in this day and age? If the story is a myth then how can we prove that it is only a myth and not a fact? Fact or myth the most important thing is to learn from the story or experience.
As it is written, regardless if Abraham was a Semite descendant of Shem or a distant cousin of the Devil, he was still a claimant to the land of Israel and the 12 tribes. And he is still a son of God, as you are a son of God and I a daughter.
You mentioned something quite interesting that I have not discovered in my studies. The devil tries to tie his geneology with the original man? As I overstand, the devil was on Earth long before the man. You see, it is a spirit thing we are dealing with here. And as I see it, the devil is amongst us every step of our lives just waiting for us to fall so that he might persuade us to the darkness. If you watch The Passion of Christ the devil is there with Christ through his entire crucifixion just waiting for him to fall (give up faith). Wasn't lucipher one of God's angels? God grants everyone, including His angels, the freedom to choose. Lucipher was not one of the ranking angels and because of jealousy and envy he chose to rebel against God - so the "myth" goes. It may be so that the devil himself has created racism to separate us humans and to weaken us but it is our duty as God's children to ignore the devil's persuasion, have faith and live a righteous life. I do not support anything the devil has conjured up to deter us from the Truth therefore, I denounce racism and embrace all as my sistren and bredren, regardless of race, color, or creed. Moreover, I embrace the blind which look upon the color of my skin and judge. For the blind know not what they do and I forgive them.
I agree, we humans are a manifestation of the universe in a physical form. What exactly do you mean "the only race is the pale face". Do you mean to say that white people have segregated themselves to the point where they *think* they are of a different race than any other, sub-human of sorts? And who are your people, black people, homosapiens?
I know we are straying from the original inquiry of the 12 tribes however, I am still interested in hearing your answers. And besides, one should never allow anything to stop them from trodding forward or seeking knowledge and truth.
Give thanks for your encouragement for the dawta to seek knowledge. Give thanks for your enlightenment.
