Transcript of Ancient African Intelligence

Early African Civilization

I shall, in the course of this work, produce a number of extraordinary facts, which will be quite sufficient to prove, that a black race, in very early times, had more influence over the affairs of the world than has been lately suspected; and...the influence have not entirely passed away
." --Godfrey Higgins
Ancient African Intelligence
The Concept of Mathematics
For many years, European writers credit the Greeks for the development of math and science. Before Greece came into existence, the arts, with the Egyptians were already ripe and old.
The Alphabet
The alphabet used by Western civilizations, Phoenicians, Hebrews, Chinese, Indians, etc. originated from the ancient Africans.
The Art & Science of Medicine and Herbs
The real "Father of Medicine" was the African multi-genius Imhotep of ancient Egypt, not Hippocrates who lived 2000 years later.
Imhotep brought the knowledge of medicine to Greece and Rome.
His temples were the first hospitals known to man.
Stolen from Africa, his many volumes are at Karl Marx University in Liepzig, Germany
The First Forms Of Paper & Fabric
African invented paper and paper-making. It was made from papyrus. Before this, writing was done on stone tablets.
"The art of making linen and fine fabrics is also proved to have been one of their branches of knowledge, for the Bible speaks of it....The linen of Egypt was famous throughout the world. The mummies are all wrapped in it and the linen is beautifully preserved...." --Helen Blavatsky
Africans carved large complex buildings, churches, and temples from massive solid rock or sides of mountains. The stones used for construction weighed some 50 tons.
To this day, it remains a mystery to "modern" engineers how those mighty pyramids were constructed.
The World is Ran by African Inventions
Louis Latimer (1886) invented the predecessor to modern air conditioners. It consisted of a fan and cooling coils for reducing temperature and purifying the air.
Africa's Nile Valley Civilization was the progenitor of world civilization and the throne of ancient knowledge.
It was the Africans who taught the Greeks all of what they learned and then they passed it on to the Romans in Europe.
The Ethiopians and Egyptians originated Mathematics and Trigonometry into a science. The word Algebra is from "Al-jabr wa'l Muqabal, " the title of the first textbook on the subject.
Algebra is further derived from Elegbara, which is the name of the keeper of wisdom of the Ifa (African) tradition.
So-called "Roman Numerals" are not Roman bur African stylizations of Kamit's (modern Egypt) hieroglyphics.
The First Universities
Kamit, or ancient Egypt was the greatest eduction center in the ancient world.
The first universities known to man was called "Sacred Mystery Schools" and the Africans had branches in other parts of the world, including China.
The oldest form of writing was called Metu Neter and it was developed in 3,000 B.C.E
Letters often take both their shape and sound from its parent hieroglyphics
The Calendar & StarScience
Ancient African women originated and developed Star Science which we know as Astrology and Astronomy.
Only recently have Europeans partly caught up with the advanced knowledge which the African Dogon people possess concerning Star Science.
Use of Electricity
Ancient Egypt's electroplated gold objects prove that the Kamites used electricity.
Africans of the Nile Valley was very familiar with electricity, as the Nile is full of an electric fish known as Gymnarchos niloticus.
The two foremost devices in Egyptian Electronics was the immortal Ankh (meaning Life & Connection) and the Djed columns (signified the "backbone of god Osiris) were used as the electrical generator.
Proof that Egyptians were the first to use Electricity
Today's light bulbs are re-invented African concepts
Why are the noses missing on
Egyptian sculptures?
European soldiers went into Ancient Egypt and hacked or blew off the noses of Egyptian sculptures to hide the undeniable evidence of black African achievement.
The Rosetta Stone
The Rosetta Stone is a slab of black basalt stone that was found in 1799.
Carved on it was an inscription duplicated in 3 languages: Egyptian hieroglyphics, demotic Egyptian characters and Greek.
Upon this discovery, it became possible to decipher the mysterious, unknown, sacred language of Egypt.
Granville T. Woods (1888) invented the first electrolyte battery
More Black Inventions
J. Standard (1891) invented the refrigerator
Henry T. Sampson (1971) invented the gamma electric cell for the cell phone
this race of black men...is the very race to which we owe our arts, our sciences, and even the use of speech
!" --Count C. Volney
Benjamin Banneker was a descendant of the Dogon tribe in West Africa and he created the first Farmer's Almanac.
He was best known for his advanced knowledge of agriculture and astronomy.
Benjamin also brought the clock to it's highest form as we know of it today.
Today, there's a clock in London that is named after him-- "Big Ben"
