Charles Darwin > Quotes > Quotable Quote: “At some future period, not very distant as measured by centuries, the civilised races of man will almost certainly exterminate and replace throughout the world the savage races. At the same time the anthropomorphous apes, as Professor Schaaffhausen has remarked, will no doubt be exterminated. The break will then be rendered wider, for it will intervene between man in a more civilised state as we may hope, than the Caucasian and some ape as low as a baboon, instead of as at present between the negro or Australian and the gorilla.” ― Charles Darwin, The Descent of Man
“When I look in the mirror I feel proud of what I see. I don’t need reefer. I don’t snort. I don’t stick nothing in my arms because I’m already high. High with the beauty of the woman that gave birth to me.
Somebody the other day asked me, ‘do you know god?’
I said ‘yes, she died 14 years ago.’
‘What do you mean?’
I said, ‘mama, dear mama. The first time I opened my eyes there was a black woman putting a nipple from her breast in my mouth to sustain me, having to sustain me for ten months in her womb….’ That’s the sign.
That was god. The god I knew. The other one is belief. Belief! And belief isn’t a fact. Belief is a hope. Belief is faith. Belief may not happen.
But Mama did. And so… the man she pointed out to me that stood…

Two articles in the Journal of Human Evolution reanalyze the geochronology of the Kibish Formation, in the Omo Valley, Ethiopia. One is titled, “Microstratigraphy of the Kibish hominin sites KHS and PHS, Lower Omo Valley, Ethiopia,” and the other is titled, “Sapropels and the age of hominins Omo I and II, Kibish, Ethiopia.”
Excavations of Kibish Formation between 1967–1974, yielded two very important Homo sapiens calvariae, each from different localities — Omo I which resembles modern humans and Omo II which has more primitive features. Omo I’s site was called Kamoya’s Hominid Site (KHS) after the discoverer, and about 2.6 km northwest of KHS, Omo II’s site, Paul’s Hominid Site (PHS) is located. These two were first indirectly dated to be 130,000 years old by a U-series disequilibrium analysis (a measurement of the decay of uranium into thorium over time) from layer near the Omo I site…

PERT EM HERU, our ancient and HOLY BOOK that means “coming forth by day and night”. as I said in part one the word ontology means the philosophy of the human being BECOMING or coming into being. u have the story of BECOMING in the bible concerning adam and eve. this story is an ancient afrikan story about the goddess she-shat giving the pharaoh the fruit of knowledge that he may rule the people with justice and righteousness, which is the ancient law of MAAT. the goddamn white man took this story and manipulated it and gave us this male chauvinistic story about eve fucking up everything by seducing adam to eat a damn apple. but let us look deeper into the story in the bible and let’s get a different understanding of it. god punishes adam/eve for practicing ONTOLOGY. god says in genesis THEY …adam/eve have BECOME uh oh…

I was reading this book on philosophy and ran across the word EXISTENTIALISM. I didn’t know what it meant and looked up the meaning… “a philosophical theory that emphasizes the EXISTENCE of the INDIVIDUAL as a person FREE and RESPONSIBLE agent determining their OWN DEVELOPMENT through acts of the WILL”. this definition describes my religion “or way of life” perfectly! I don’t recognize any religion or any god but do believe our ancestors continue to live thru us. we may give them the mythological name HERU, ASET, OR PTAH but those that have passed on or died their DNA still continues thru us. so for me the ancestors guide me, support me, give me instructions, but ultimately my development is mine and mine alone. I can follow their instructions or sit on my ass and do nothing, but I don’t believe in some god, creator, deity that’s outside of me in…
