A Biblical Theology of Race

We are original man, the Asiatic Black man

The maker, the author, the cream of the planet Earth

Father of civilization and daughter of the universe

 (Popa Wu, Wu Revolution)

 

Cause war like the grandson of Kush

I’m hanging devils’ heads on a evergreen bush

(RZA, Dangerous Mindz)

 

Yakub, maker and creator of the devil. Swine merchant... your time is near at hand. F--- with me and your time will be now. Your presence here effects the mind of my people like a fever. You, Yakub, are the bearer of nine thousand nine hundred and ninety nine diseases, evil, corrupt, porkchop-eatin’ brain!

(Outro Speech, Gravel Pit)

Embryology and Science Denial

From The Public Discourse:

In short, Dr. Paulson accuses the HHS of presenting a faith-based affirmation as if it were a scientific position. But it turns out that his denial of the claim that life begins at conception contradicts the standard scientific position, and his arguments against that claim are fallacious (sometimes egregiously so) and inaccurate. Ironically, it is Dr. Paulson, not the HHS, who seems to be basing his views about the beginning of human life on something other than scientific facts.
