From the Desk of Empress T- Host of Life After Christianity 101 (March 19th, 2015) EYE AM CELEBRATING TODAY!!! Notable African historian, Dr Ben (Yosef Ben-Jochannan) joined the spiritual world of the ancestors this morning in New York. Dr. Ben was 97 years old. He has been a key element in correcting me (us) about who God really is. It is because of the teachings that he has provided that has caused me to redirect my worship from the idea of a God that "men" has given us to my real God, My Mother. It is because of Dr. Ben that Eye give my mother all of the praise, honor, and glory for her giving me life. It is because of Dr. Ben that Eye found the courage to speak "life" into my mother and put her back on the throne in my life where she was supposed to be in the first place.
Eye am forever thankful to Dr. Ben for such eye-opening information that he has sprinkled over the land of the Children of the SUN. Eye send honor and praises to HIS God who allowed Dr. Ben to enter this earth realm. May they both have a powerful impact on their next journey as they have/had in this life. Da Empress has Spoken...
Professor Yosef Ben Jochannan is an Egyptologist. Having taught at Cornell University for over 15 years, Dr. Ben, as he is affectionately known, has lectured widely on both sides of the Atlantic. His theme - the ancient civilizations of Egypt. His presentations have placed him in great demand by students and community groups, especially those of African descent. Perhaps the high regard he enjoys today stems from his long, unwavering theme that the ancient civilizations along the Nile were African.
"For more than five decades, Dr. Yosef ben-Jochannan, a master teacher, researcher, author, lecturer, has led what has now become a mass effort to emphasize African contributions to the world." African Origins of the Major "Western Religions: first published in 1970, continues to be one of Dr. Ben's most thought-provoking works. "By highlighting the African influences and roots of these religions (Judaism, Christianity and Islam), Dr. Ben reveals an untold history that many would prefer to forget."
His opening sentence sets the tone for the well-researched and documented work.
Dr. Ben says, "I shall show that Judaism, Christianity, and Islam are as much African as they are Asian in origin, and in no sense what-so-ever European as the title, "Western Religions" suggests;" Dr. Ben's ultimate goal in this work is to show the definite links between exclusively indigenous traditional African learning systems with these so-called "Western Religions."
