Man has forever been apprehensive about his biggest and main flaw; the fragility of life. Thus, he has always desired immortality. However, the realities of life are such that one must face death sooner or later. Death brings with it the inevitable erasure of the person’s identity and worldly achievements. In order to get around this painful dilemma, some have managed to leave their legacies, like the pharaohs who made the pyramids and Julius Caesar who named a month after himself.
Due to the nature of deaths after effects we detest being meager and want to be big and colossal in magnitude, so that we may live until eternity in any way possible. Probably this is the reason; why we create empires? I have argued in a previous article, To Rejuvenation And Total Restoration, that: “An empire represents our inner desire for the ideal self. Whatever we want to achieve within us, we also wish to achieve in the outer world; an empire is nothing more than a mirror image of the endeavour for self-actualization in the outer world.” In my view, an empire is a living entity with all the characteristics and desires of an individual. Just like we desire a unique identity so does the empire. In fact, all empires have unique identities.
To carve out a new identity, all major empires share certain similarities among them or some common traits. They all introduce new and unique systems that their citizens and dominions must adhere to. The new systems include; a new social system, a new economic system, a new religion as well as a new political and legal system. The Egyptians, Greeks, Romans, Muslims and the English all introduced new systems. Empires that do not bring their own ideologies with them do not last as long (history taught us this lesson via the fate of the Mongols and now we are witnessing the American Empire crumbling, neither of them brought original ideologies with them). However, not all the new ideologies continue to exist after the demise of the empire. The Egyptian, Greek and Roman religions are now extinct. However, some ideologies remain forever such as democracy from the Greeks and the social hierarchy or class system from the Egyptians.
The empire fiercely defends and protects the new identity and the new systems as they are its foundations which will lead to its success. Experts are employed to convince the people to believe in the ideologies. History shows that the Egyptians, Greeks, Romans and Muslims all introduced own religions. The British, however, rebelled against the Catholic Church and created an alternative branch of Christianity, a Protestant. Subsequently, they decided to gradually rid the God from their system and chose secularism as their new religion.
Since the new identity requires that the belief system has to be new and different, explaining the origin of man from the biblical point of view had to be replaced. Thus, it stands to reason that part of the belief system introduced by the secularist empire, which is aggressively promoted by the so-called scientists, is ‘out of Africa’ theory. The theory dictates that Homo sapiens evolved and originated from Africa and then spread to rest of the world. This ‘out of Africa’ theory has been the point of much debate ever since it was first introduced.
Lately, Anatole A. Klyosov, an American geneticist, however, has debunked the ‘out of Africa’ theory in his research paper, “Re-Examining the “Out of Africa” Theory and the Origin of Europeoids (Caucasoids) in Light of DNA Genealogy”. (https://www.scirp.org/journal/PaperInformation.aspx?paperID=19566).
The significance of the above research is that it validates centuries-old biblical truths that were rejected by the supporters of new systems as a mere myth. Referring to the different groups taking part in the experiment, Anatole A. Klyosov believes that:
“A territorial origin of haplogroups α- and β-remains unknown; however, the most likely origin for each of them is a vast triangle stretched from Central Europe in the west through the Russian Plain to the east and to Levant to the south. Haplogroup B is descended from β-haplogroup (and not from haplogroup A, from which it is very distant, and separated by as much as 123,000 years of “lat- eral” mutational evolution) likely migrated to Africa after 46,000 ybp. The finding that the Europeoid haplogroups did not descend from “African” haplogroups.”
This likely confirms the biblical assertion, which is that Noah’s Ark descended on the mountain range Judi near Turkey (see Qur’an, Hud: 44). According to Islamic literature, Ibn Kathir (1300-1373), writes in Stories of the Prophets that Noah had four sons, Ham, Sam, Japheth and Yam. His son Yam perished in the flood. After the flood, Noah’s three children disembarked to three different directions; towards the southern areas (Ham), the Middle Eastern areas (Sam or Shem) and Northern areas (Japheth).
Ham is the forefather of the Africans including, Egyptians, Sudanese and Berbers. It was Ham’s descendants who created the first civilisations and empires in the world. They ruled as superpowers and dominated nearby regions.
Sam’s descendants were in the Middle East, these include the Arabs and the Persians. They took the reins of power after the Africans and became the superpower of the day and ruled over colonies as well. As much inventions and innovations happened in this region, it was given the title of ‘cradle of civilisation.’
Japheth settled in the Northern areas; his descendants include the Turks, Gog Magog, Russians and Caucasians. One of Japheth’s sons was named Yaban and it is likely that Japan is named after him.
The Australian Aborigines and Native Americans are the children of Adam but are not descendants of Noah.
There are volumes of written works, research and books to support the out of Africa theory. In defence of my theory, I will say that although the secular scientists publish their findings on the human origins being in Africa, the most important information in their research (in my view) is not the one that they are announcing but rather what they left out. The question that remains to be answered, however, is how the next empire will deal with the obsolescent system that time has rejected, the secular system.
